While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.

For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of  items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.

We hope you’ll  find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.

1. Ultimate Kate or Die #1 by Kate Leth

Tattoos, relationships, lesbians and guinea pigs. What does all of this have to do with comics? Everything, that’s what. This collection of comic strips from Nova Scotia artist Kate Leth is on sale now for a steal at $5 a pop, and it’s well worth the price. Featuring strips on everything from cosplay and tattoo etiquette, to the secret relationship between Spider-Man and Deadpool, it’s 32 pages of fun wrapped up in one neat, shelf fitting package. Although, if you live in the Halifax area, just go over to Strange Adventures Comix & Curiosities, they’re always holding a few issues just in case and you might even meet Kate.

Dark Side Roast Coffee, Never Blow Up A Planet Without It.

Coming from the smart masses at ThinkGeek is the latest delight for coffee drinkers everywhere. ‘Vader’s Dark Side Roast Coffee’, a blend of three different coffees and two roasts  is a must have for any Sith lord to wake up to. Officially licensed as a Star Wars product collectors everywhere could be snatching this up faster than a Jabba eats cake. Anyone starting their day planning the destruction of a planet or building a planetary “Deathstar”  would be nuts to not to buy this ThinkGeek exclusive.

What’s Vader think of his brew?

Sure, Vader looks like he got cut from his cameo in Office Space , but if he’s drinking coffee with his face printed on the bag wouldn’t you? Luke Skywalker never got this kind of treatment and that’s because he doesn’t have beans Lord Vader does, a blend of African and Indonesian beans that is. Hand roasted by Stormtroopers and made for the Imperial elite it’ll beat drinking blue milk any day of the week. For every cup you drink you’ll come back stronger than before, or at least be able to stay awake during your boss’s morning meeting.

Embrace the dark roast, it grows strong in your coffee pot.

Stay Puft Marshmallows FOR REAL!!!

stay-puft-1

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.
* Box is rubbery with a marshmallow feel, for fun after you eat all the mallows.
* 16 square-ish mallows per box.
* Caffeine Content: A bit over 100mg per piece!
* Net Wt.: 6.25 oz
* Box Dimensions: 7″ x 4″ x 2.5″

I think I can sum up my efficacious-ness with one word. AWESOMESAUCE!

Now, if only someone will get around to making the “big fucking Twinkie” Egon was talking about.
