I know many of you are Harry Potter fans, so I’d like to ask you all a question: At what point is Harry Potter finally going to be over? You guys have bemoaning the end of the series since Deathly Hallows came out in 2007. First it was the final book. Then it was the final movie. Then it was the final final movie. And then there were the farewell speeches. Then the retrospective. Then the documentary of the end. And now here are six minutes of the final deleted scenes ever in Harry Potter franchise! When the Deathly Hallows Part II DVD comes out on November 11th, that’s it, right? We’re done? (Via The Mary Sue)
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.
