Please watch the above video, and just try not to have your head explode with the epic awesomeness/failure/majesty/vampires and snow angels and horses/blond hair and whisper-thin brown mustache combo/whatever the fuck is going on here. Really, words can’t do it justice. The Crusade has most certainly begun, Chris Dane Owens. You did not lie.
The TR shirt contest will be up in a few, for those people whose brains aren’t currently covering their monitor. (Via KSK)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
