Remember how the Tomtom GPS made a swell commercial with Darth Vader for the Star Wars-branded voice directions? Well, they just released the Yoda voice, as well as this commercial featuring the little Jedi Master recording his lines. You know, every time I think I’m a bitter nerd, too jaded to enjoy anything, I watch a reasonably funny Star Wars-related video, laugh my ass off, and remember I still have some life in me yet. And then I remember I just spent two hours of my life writing about erotic Sonic fic fiction and I drink. And drink and drink and drink and drink. (Via Geekologie)
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.
