Our latest Essentials installment features Neek Lurk, a self-styled ‘professional LURKER.’ Having grown up in the formative days of the Internet during the early 2000s where forums and message boards ruled the roost, Lurk has since navigated the mass adoption of social media platforms and leveraged their power to forge his own career, most recently as social media manager for Stussy. Now operating out of Melrose, Los Angeles, Lurk understandably places prime importance on his MacBook Pro and iPhone as being his gateways to the Internet and, of course, to “Lurking.” For a quick start to the day, Neek drinks coffee, and to unwind at night, Jameson whiskey. Other practical essentials include Oakley sunglasses for protection, a tactical knife for defense, Advil for headaches, and Tiger Balm for neck pains from long days spent staring at the computer screen. Neek keeps it real with a Hanes white tee and black Acne jeans, paired with white Converse 1970s Hi-Tops. Rounding out his selection is the AMOK Fifth Dispatch reference book, which informs Neek on “life and death and everything in between.” Make sure to check out the rest of our Essentials series, and then head over the Lurk’s Instagram to learn more about his daily activities.
