1) And with a single YouTube video, all the good will Eminem and the Beastie Boys created for white rappers was instantly obliterated. 2) Does this video makes anyone else want to spray two aerosol deodorant cans directly into the sky? 3) Although this was made this year, if someone told me this video was written and performed in 1990, I wouldn’t have doubted them for a second. 4) It’s a shame Mati couldn’t trade the Power of Heart for the Power of Wu-Tang. 5) I don’t know how it’s possible, but this was so much whiter than I imagined a rap song inspired by Captain Planet could possibly be. And I thought it was going to be pretty goddamn white. (Via Geeks Are Sexy)
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.
