Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOVE: Game of Thrones Daenerys (Disney Version). Very cute, but Y U NO put Mushu? [badassdigest]
The Interwebz, the breeding ground for great nerdy art. Crazy things like She-hulk testing out a new “jack hammer”, the secret behind just how outrageous Jem truly is, and other weird s#!t. There is also a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.
ABOVE: Isn’t it nice when you see two pop culture icons hug it out and get along? As part of a series created by German artist Ingrid Aspöck of portraits of enemies hugging it out show us the lighter side to solving problems. Smile you son of a momma shark. [The Mary Sue]
Feudal Japan would have been a much deadlier place if samurai like Bobba Fett were around to kick some ass for their imperial lord. Just think, if he ever failed a mission he’d cut off his own head as punishment. Saves you all the work. [Obvious winner]
The Stay Puft Marshmallow man was the single most delicious villain ever to be a part of Ghostbusters franchise and in the above piece created by Matt Ferguson he looks downright awesome. Made in both a “Happy” and “Mad” Stay Puft version, this is how the movie posters should have been done in the 80’s. [Cakes and Comics]
Disney princesses have always been dressed as elegant and high class, here it looks like they’ve been dropped off in the middle of San Francisco circa right freaking now . The “hipster” princesses would be given free iced cafee Americano any time they needed a sip at my book store/coffee shop. [The Mary Sue]
And from Disney princesses to…half naked Disney Heroes. We’re pretty sure artist David Kawena was more then a bit generous with some of the bulges he drew though. Being able to wake a princess with a kiss is talent, but having a porn star sized wang, now that’s just showing off. [Geek Tyrant]
Skyrim has been invading everything lately, Internet meme jokes, parodies and even television shows, but The Simpsons? Really! He used to be a warrior like us, then he took a six pack of Duff to the belly. [GameFreaks]
Adapted from the antique “Cabinet Cards” of yesteryear, Alex Gross transformed these 4″ x 6″ photographs into a blend of pop culture and geek icons worthy of any household. Makes you wonder sometimes. [The Daily What]
Canadian artist Yue Wang may very well be the untapped talent in the great white north, with his amazing renderings of popular characters from anime, movies and video games. From the demon killing Dante from Devil May Cry to the high kicking Chun-Li of Street Fighter, Yue knows how to knock out a perfect set of curves. [You Bent My Wookie]
We all know the world is going to blow up, melt down or whatever since Mayans didn’t bother to make any more calenders. Speaking of calenders, why no go out in style with a pin-up girl every month. Created by Andrew Tarusov, this 12 month apocalyptic calendar makes watching the world burn that much better. [Blastr]
A battle of the ages, Monty Python and the Holy Grail‘s Black Knight vs. The Lord of the Rings’ Gandalf the Grey! This could take a while people, maybe there will be a victor by next week. [Geek Tyrant]
First of all, did you know that porn star Ron Jeremy was in Ghostbusters? Dude, he totally was. He was an extra in a crowd scene towards the end of the flick . Another Ghostbuster’s little known fact is that I have mad obsession with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. When I first saw Ghostbusters and first set eyes on that gigantic mass of mallow, sailor wardrobe and all it was love at first site. He looked so remarkably harmless…and tasty. I always believed that he never really wanted to destroy the Ghostbusters. He was under some evil spell and couldn’t help himself. If someone just gave him a hug I’m sure he could have broken Gozer’s mind control. Suffice to say I love Mr. Stay Puft. Peanut Butter and Fluff. Smores. Rice Crispy Treats. My penchant for delicious gooey treats is all thanks to him.
Now, as kid I always did wonder why I couldn’t find Stay Puft Marshmallows in the store. Of course, I was like 5 at the time and had no idea that products in movies were completely fictional. Regardless, you’d think that after all years that some merchandiser, somewhere would have seized the opportunity and market Stay Puft Marshmallows to the masses. Christ, Ecto-Cooler (memba that?) stayed on the market from 87′-2001. You damn well know Stay Puft Marshmellows would have had the same success if not more.
Well, there is good news. I can finally put my childhood and adult life rage to rest. Because…..(drumroll)…., Stay Puft Marshmallows are finally on the market!!! Yep, it’s true. It’s a new product from the glorious bastards at thinkgeek.com
From the moment we saw that giant, smiling Destroyer of Worlds, our sweet tooth called out for revenge. Revenge for the bits of New York crushed. Revenge for the . . . ok, so not really revenge – we just wanted marshmallows. And even Walter Peck being covered in blobs of melted mallow man weren’t enough to crack our craving. It’s taken over 25 years, but we finally have the stuff that childhood dreams are made of: Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows!
Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows
* Delicious gourmet marshmallows.
* Licensed Ghostbusters product.
