As Topless Robot ends its broadcast day, we’d like to leave you with “Skynet Symphonic,” a dulcet composition from musical artiste Pogo, which has been made entirely with the sounds of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It’s badassedness will hopefully help you relax are a long and often infuriatingly stupid day. If that doesn’t work, I suggest a pitcher of scotch — which is what I’ll be having within 30 seconds of hitting the “Publish” button on this article. (Via The Daily What).
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.
