Miscellaneous, Nerdery

Truly, He Is a Master of Dungeons



Devin Burntwire likes Dungeons & Dragons. So much so that, with the help of his brother Shawn, he made a room in his house specifically for playing it. It is now a Dungeon, complete with portcullis, weapon rack, iron-wrought chandelier, a door that requires a skeleton key (!!!) and a fog machine for, you know, mood.

I’m stunned. This has gone so far past nerdy that it’s purely totally fucking awesome, and I’m 100% impressed. There are many, many more pics here, if you want to gawk — I promise, you want to gawk. Thanks to Jes for the tip.

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.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
