And no, obviously I’m not referring to MTV, since we all know it stopped playing music in 1994 or so. This is a Japanese music video from Kousuke Sugimoto and Takayuki Manabe, who did the animation and music, respectively. I’m sure a few of you are immediately grimacing in disgust at the thought of an anime music video, but I assure you the only thing this has to do with anime is that it’s animated. Feel free not to watch it, but you’ll be missing out on about 4 minutes of awesomeness; the music’s not bad either, in my opinion The rest of you are watching it: holy shit, right? (Via Gorilla Mask)
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.
