…and that someone spent god knows how long programming and timing various old electronics and computers to play a startlingly awesome rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Yes, I know it’s not perfect, but if you comment anything other than statements about being impressed by this dude’s awesome and kind of terrifying feat, I will bust your head. There have already been too many shenanigans in the comments today, and I am shenaniganed out. Thanks to James for the tip.
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.
