Eccentric vs Insane

Via Daring Fireball - Stanley Kubrick, eccentric.

"It's Futura Extra Bold," explains Tony. "It was Stanley's favourite typeface. It's sans serif. He liked Helvetica and Univers, too. Clean and elegant."

"Is this the kind of thing you and Kubrick used to discuss?" I ask.

"God, yes," says Tony. "Sometimes late into the night. I was always trying to persuade him to turn away from them. But he was wedded to his sans serifs."

We've all known guys like this. If they don't have money it's best to keep a sharp stick handy so we can poke them if they get out of hand.
