For a little while, anyways. The long awaited Venture Bros. Halloween special will premiere on Adult Swim this Sunday at 11:30 pm EST; this here’s the only new Venture Bros. footage we’ve received between the last episode of season 4 (back in November 2010) and the upcoming season 5, which is supposed to begin sometime early in 2013. That’s a long-ass time. This clip is pretty short, but I’ll fucking take it, partially out of withdrawal, and partially because Pete White dressed as Ziggy Stardust makes me happy on a fundamental level. Infinite thanks to Doughbott 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.
