All hail Total Recall: The Musical. Without fear of hyperbole, I say this is the greatest thing ever created in the history of man. If I thought there would possibly be a chance of me needing it even one more time, I’d create a tag for it titled “Ridiculously Necessary Remakes.” If this actually happened, I’d get my ass to Mars so quick it would make Kuato’s head spin. which would be intensely uncomfortable for both Kuato, his host, and anyone unfortunate enough to be watching, I imagine.
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.
