Actually, the thing you can see here is an incredibly shitty bootleg cam-version of The Thing prequel trailer, starring Ramona Flowers and Vaughn from Community. Honestly, the video is so fucking terrible I can’t bring myself to watch it, although I’ve admittedly been suspiciously of a Thing prequel anyways. If any of you sit through and can tell what the fuck is happening, please let me know what you think in the comments. (Via Geek Tyrant)
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.
