There’s a small emergency in the Topless Robot household, and I and Ms. Robot have to take Topless Cat to the vet. Please enjoy this video of underage Korean girls, dressed as school girls and wearing kitten paw gloves, prancing about the stage for some Korean TV show, and singing what may well be the worst pop song in the whole of human history. Anyways, I should be back and on track in time for the next post. Sorry for the inconvenience of having this song stuck in your head for the next several days. Still, better this than a giant My Little Pony belting out “Defying Gravity,” right? (Via Warming Glow)
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.
