I’ve already been at my most obnoxiously verbose today, so three quick thoughts:
1) Olivia Wilde has played both Madonna and the Baroness for Funny or Die, meaning besides being bewilderingly attractive she has a great sense of humor, and thus is probably the perfect woman. 2) Patton Oswalt as Dr. Demento is the most brilliant casting ever in the history of cinema as a medium, regardless that it’s for a parody trailer web short. 3) This is so awesome I’m genuinely sad it’s not real. Thanks for nothing, FoD.
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.
