With all these Back to the Future 25th anniversary shindigs and photo shoots and such, there’s been one guy who has been mysterious absent — Christopher Lloyd, a.k.a. Doc Brown. I didn’t think there was any problem, but it was weird he hadn’t popped up anywhere — that is, until the Scream awards, where he took the stage with Michael J. Fox. The clip only shows a few seconds of them on stage, but if your day can’t be improved by watching Christopher Lloyd give Michael J. Fox a hug… you’re either having the best or the terrifyingly worst day ever. (Via /Film)
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.
