I’d be furious that Star Command is taking so damn long to come out, if 1) it didn’t look so goddamn phenomenal, and 2) the guys making it hadn’t promised to include Topless Robots as an alien species. So I guess now I’m just going to wait patiently and watch this video a few more times burying my anger deep inside me, until it festers and poisons my very soul. Which is actually pretty normal for me, so whatever. Much thanks to Drew T. 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.
