? The Crooks & Castles fashion label is teaming up with THQ to make an official Saints Row: The Third streetwear line. You can watch the video above to learn the types of threads they’ve made, and then purchase them at Karmaloop. As a fat white nerd, I imagine it’s against the law for me to wear any of these, or if it isn’t, it certainly should be. (Via Kotaku)
?? About a million people have sent me Adidas’ official Star Wars Wampa shoes, which you can order here for $150. Frankly, I find them boring as hell, and would have no idea they were Star Wars-related if it didn’t plainly say “wampa” on the side. I much prefer the AT-AT shoes, which are only $100.

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.
