Okay. Some art students recreating Da Vinci’s The Last Supper for some kind of modern/pop art fusion/commentary is all well and good. Standard operating procedure for art students, really. But I say there’s no fucking way these guys “solved” all 4,050 cubes to get them in the proper colors for the piece, which is the only way this would truly be art. If they just took the stickers off and reapplied — which I’m 100% certain they did — then they’re just cheaters. Big cheating cheaters who cheated and aren’t truly willing to suffer for their art. Who have a great deal of time on their hands, apparently. Thanks to Izandra 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.
