Wait. That probably sounded better in my head. Oh well, this is a neat little Skyrim-themed fan video about a dragon who seems to be minding his own business and an asshole human who decides to kill it just to be a dick. Unless dragons are evil in Elder Scrolls, in which case this is a story of a heroic human who comes upon and evil dragon who’s dicking around in the sky and not paying attention. One of the two. Thanks to Yung for the tip.
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.
