I’d have said someone deciding to mash-up Snoop Dogg’s “Smoke Weed Everyday” with the Chrono Trigger overworld music was more than nerdy enough, but this gent went the extra mile, and made a game video of it — a game where you play as Snoop and break into people’s houses and yell at them to “Smoke weed everyday” or other such sage advice. It goes without saying that were it real, I would play the holy fuck out of this game. Infinite thanks to LJDarten 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.
