Welcome back, folks. I hope you had a tragic weekend, full of self-loathing and misery after reading the Pok?mon story that you all demanded and that I tried so valiantly not to show you. I hope that will teach you that some things only Daddy touch, okay? There’s a ton of stuff to get through today, but let’s start with a little live-action Donkey Kong made entirely of post-it notes. It’s quite impressive, not least of which because I had no idea they made brown post-its. (Via I Heart Chaos)
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.
