I’m still so fucking mad about this Transformers 2 shit that I’m in actual pain. I have to calm down. Have a drink. Play some Prototype. Kill many, many digital innocent civilians.
And that means ending my work day, so here you go — a bizarre mash-up of the Ghostbusters theme song and Nine Inch Nails’ “The Hand That Feeds” set to footage from Extreme Ghostbusters, found by king of Twitter Agent M. The song is pretty goddamn amazing, but the video portion seems to just give out after a while. I can’t worry about that now. I gotta go. Thank gos Heroes isn’t on tonight, or I’d go on a nerd rage killing spree tonight.
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.
