Christian Bale went to visit the victims of the Aurora shooting yesterday. What turns this from a good thing into a great thing is that Bale didn’t announce it, he didn’t call a publicist, he just showed up there — the only reason anyone knows about it is because people at the hospital started tweeting and Facebooking that Christian Bale was there. He also visited the memorial set up next to the theater. Good on you, Mr. Wayne. (Via WWTDD)

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.
