Morning Bites: Nurds, Tao + Bill, Eggers on teachers, Jens Lekman, and more

Yesterday we were able to finally be given an opportunity to put up a picture of The Yuppie Handbook.  Today we’re happy to help figure out if you’re a nurd by way of National Lampoon’s Gentleman’s Bathroom Companion, from 1975 (Via The Trad).  Happy Friday!

  • The world really cares a lot about Tao Lin getting Bill Clegg to be his agent.
  • “Whether it’s Fleet Foxes or Friendly Fires, Black Angels or Beach House, today’s bands are less likely to battle the past than to luxuriate in it.” – From the review at The New Republic of Simon Reynolds Retromania: Pop Culture’s Addiction to Its Own Past.
