Before you watch this short but incredibly internetty video, let me assure you that the makers of it assure everybody that not a single kitten was harmed during filming. So rather than be concerned for these kittens who soar so majestically in the air, you can sit back, and let the glorious mega-cuteness destroy your mind and soul. (Via Geeks Are Sexy)
Also I’m not running a TR contest this weekend. LOOK! KITTENS! IN CAPES! FLYING IN SLOW-MOTION! /points dramatically at video, then backs slowly out of the room
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.
