Who wouldn’t? Dude, If I had my own theme song, and a nerd band was playing a pretty awesome cover of it, and I had decided to go see them because they were called The Science Guys and were named after my educational children’s show, you bet your sweet ass I’d pick a lady from the audience and get down to my own theme song. I probably wouldn’t sing “She Blinded Me with Science” after it, but then again, I’m not The Science Guy. Much thanks to Irene 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.
