? John Mapes, creator of the millennium’s greatest song (I speak, of course, of “Love Is Lasagna”) returns with a ditty titled “I’m Spending Christmas in Skyrim.” I imagine anyone who both owns Skyrim and celebrates Christmas will know exactly what John is singing about.
? Here, Lara and Taylor perform a beautiful medley of Morrowind and Skyrim themes on piano and violin, respectively. Head to the YouTube page and check out the video description for a link to the mp3 (actually, you can do the same thing with Mapes’ song, too). Thanks to Andre B. for the tip.
? And last but certainly not least, here’s 14+ minutes of 100 unique ways to die while playing Skyrim. Yes, technically the videomaker has made no fan music for the video, but instead used Elvis Presley’s “A Little Less Conversation.” I don’t care. Just watch it. (Via Kotaku)
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.
