I haven’t been able to see anything or buy anything related to the Tron: Legacy movie; apparently, telling Disney that I’ve often written about how much the Tron sequel makes me masturbate is not conducive to them give me access or that awesome 25th anniversary figure from Spin Master. So i was not invited to go along with /Film to see the new Flynn’s Arcade set/event/thing, which included Bruce Boxleitner and lots of awesomeness. This is pretty tragic, but the insult to injury is that since the internet sucks out here, I can’t even watch the 13-minute video of them all going through Flynn’s. I’m posting it because I’m pretty sure it’s awesome, and hopefully it’ll work for you guys. If it works and it’s awesome, don’t tell me. I’m upset enough right now.
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.
