There are a few things you can see that make life and all its pain and turmoil worthwhile. A beautiful sunset, a pile of sleeping kittens… and this video, presumably from the new Looney Tunes show, starring Daffy Duck as an awesome wizard fighting demons, hanging with his own elven harem and shooting lightning from his eyes while his own personal metal theme song wails in the background. Those three things. That’s it. nothing else. Thanks to everyone who sent this magic in.
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.
