Weird-Al-Layla-501st-Legion

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… People are dicks. Not for the first time, a young girl has been bullied for liking Star Wars, because – wait of it – Star Wars is for boys. Hm. Let’s tell that to all the ladies you passionately wrote opinion pieces about the casting of Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it looked like there was only one new female character. But this isn’t a story about complaining. No, this is the story about the real heroes, the men and the women of the 501st Legion. Star Wars fans par excellence, the Legion took it upon themselves to remind girls everywhere that Star Wars is for everyone. (more…)

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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

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. I need one of these in my living room… and I also need to know what happened to all of the wine that was in the barrel, because I need to drink it.   [Obvious Winner]

header-american-psycho-with-huey-lewis-and-weird-al-comedy-short

American Psycho is one of those movies that didn’t really catch on in theaters, but took on a new life when released on DVD. The film quickly grew a well deserved cult following and joined the ranks of some of the best Internet Memes.

In a brilliant twist of one of the most memorable scenes of the movie, Huey Lewis turns the tables on Christian Bale’s incredible performance by turning everything upside down with his own unbelievably humorous twist of the famous scene. Lewis matches, and some times surpasses the mannerisms and movements of Bale’s original scene. It’s all in fun until Weird Al gets the axe.

The video is part of the promotion for the 30th anniversary of Huey Lewis and the News’ Sports album.

Everyone has their favorite tunes they jam to. Whether it be pop, rock, rap, hip-hop or country (me, I’m kind of a folk-rock nerd. I love me some banjo), but there is one type of music we can agree upon, nerdy tunes and parodies. The internet is ripe with parodies and original songs celebrating everything we hold dear; gaming, Star Wars, those hot chicks cosplaying sexy outfits forcing you to excuse yourself. We all know what you’re doing in that convention hall bathroom, you dirty boy.

Here’s a list of ten of the best nerdy music videos and parodies on the webz. Get ready to rock out with your Spock out!

“I Kissed A Nerd” by Damsels of Dorkington

Once you’ve gone nerd, you’ll never, umm…leave the herd? I’m terrible at rhyming. But this video from the Damsels of Dorkington is a fantastic epiphany of a song in which we learn, hey, nerdy guys (and gals) can be a hot date. Sometimes you want brain over brawn, and nerds have huge brains.
