-“Their defense is down!” It’s San Antonio Spurs Ackbar.

-PlayStation is working on a TV on-demand device. I feel old for not quite understanding why I need it.

Val Kilmer is selling some really awful “art” online.

-Video riff on “The Force Awakens” features Jar Jar taking a shit. Ahh, Internet.

-Underoos were cool for us as kids because regular T-shirts weren’t cool back then. Adult Underoos seem like too little too late.

-The race to be the first zombie movie to exploit Ebola fears has begun.

-Tattooed scientist wears a shirt designed by the wife of his tattoo artist. Lands a goddamn probe on a comet. People online go into offense overdrive, prompting a tearful apology. This is why we (sometimes) can’t have nice things.

But what would you like to talk about? There WILL be a recap thread this week, so go crazy.

As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A.
