That is a song, which I assume is titled “WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS,” performed by Miss Mayday. I think it’s quite pretty, actually, although I would prefer it if it didn’t make me think of a dozen guys in matted animal costumes busting in through my windows with bats and firearms.
Now, a lot of you have sent in a ton of WRT images and other assorted goodies — one of my favorites is this adorable countdown clock to judgement day — and by all means, keep sending ’em to me. I’ll do another WRT post as soon as I get enough. But for the record, I’m not interested in starting an internet “war” on Brickhousebunny21 or his site. Topless Robot is about nerds laughing at themselves; while I honestly think BHB21 has real problems, he’s still a nerd, and I’d much prefer he enjoy the meme’s celebrity than hate it, since it’s far more entertaining than his fan fiction (I’d also like him to get help, but whatever). I mean, in all honesty, HIS RESPONSIBLE THIS. He should embrace it. I’m just the asshole that made fun of his story on the internet.
That said, Brickhousebunny21, if you still feel slighted — or anybody who’s been wronged by FFF, for that matter — you’re more than welcome to write an fan fic story starring me, and I’ll run it in FFF. I may edit it for size, but not for content. Rest assured, I’m not looking forward to it, but I have to admit that’s fair play. You can email them to me at toplessrobot(at)gmail.com. Hopefully you’ll find that a more reasonable solution than the house/furries/bats thing.
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.
