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

ABOVE: You can’t get much better than gaming and wine can you? Joel Griffin Dodd converted an old wine barrel into a fully functioning Donkey Kong tabletop arcade game.

Web content is the future. And the queen of nerdy web content is Felicia Day. Not surprising at all then, Day is bringing her flair for the geek to YouTube with a brand new channel. Geek and Sundry, launching April 2nd,  will focus on the very best of indie geek culture. There will be shows hosted by Day herself as well as Wil Wheaton, Veronica Belmont, Tom Merritt, and Paul and Storm. Also expect guest appearances by Grant Imahara, Jenna Busch, Colin Ferguson and lots more.

In addition to all the new content, Geek and Sundry will be showing season five of The Guild starting April 10th.
