The best thing I’ve read all year.

I can’t possibly bring myself to excerpt this. It’s a furious and glorious homage to Byron in the pages of the eXile. Just go read it now.

    Thanks for turning me on to the existence of that site. My new random quotable bit of the day is from their piece about hating the nineties:

    “For decades, nerds paid dearly for being nerds. And then one day, in the 1990s, nerds became cool. Not real nerds, of course – they’re always fucked. But the most cutting-edge, advanced, socially-successful, guaranteed-to-succeed, trendsetting-without-effort types made a point to develop a nerdish or loser narrative about themselves, since being cool was no longer cool. Even successful jocks and writers we know faked that they were losers – in order to become more successful. And it worked”
