I've been curious for quite sometime now what LabelKing does for a living. All of his posts and pics make him seem way too eccentric for someone to work a regular 9-5 job. I always imagined Labelking as someone who just inherited a fortune he uses to travel the world searching vintage animal skins. I just can't imagine him in a cubicle surrounded by other office drones like myself worrying about deadlines and filling out TPS reports.

He spends his parents money so he can be the creepiest kid on campus.

I'm interested in the answer to a degree, but if the man wishes to have his privacy then we should allow it. I enjoy his personality and taste which is unfortunately labeled eccentricity. In many cases I find his tastes to be exquisite and off the beaten path. I kind of get sick of hearing about Barcelona chairs and Thom Browne.

Has anyone seen the movie Harold and Maude?

LK, have you seen it? It's based on your life, you know ; ). Kidding, I don't know you that well, only seen one real pic, but if you haven't seen the movie, go check it out. His clothes and lifestyle are waaaay out there, LOL.

Does the word "eccentric" still have a negative ring these days? I thought rejection of conventionality and middle class mores had pretty well become the norm - at least on the two coasts.

Bud Cort is underused and underrated although he did not age well.

I loved the outfit he wore in the beginning scene where he "hangs" himself; I recall thick gold jewelry and '70s styled suits.

I've been to the house where they filmed the movie in; it's in Hillsborough.

You're back already? Did you borrow Gravitas' wizard fit so you could perform a staff infection on a certain somebody?

For some reason, I would feel much better knowing that he was. I think it would almost be cruel of fate to force someone that off-beat and peculiar to participate in the rat-race like the rest of us.

Have you met Will? He said something about Tom Ford telling him to experiment.
