?Morning, folks! I hope you had a great holiday weekend and aren’t too tired/depressed/hung over. I drove 1900 miles in 9 days with Ms Robot and Topless Kitty — 1100 of it in two days — and was nearly killed by Google Maps’ insistence that I leave the safety of the interstate to travel on various two-lane highways of the West Virginia mountains, which happened to be covered in ice and snow at the time. So fuck Google Maps. But now I’m home, I had about eight shots of bourbon, and I have a shit-load of silly things to post, so let’s get back to it. First up: This ridiculous gingerbread Serenity; you can see how it was made here. I’m not going to lie — I can’t help but wish for a little gingerbread Firefly crew to accompany it. Then I could play Reaver. (Via Obvious Winner)

About Author

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.
