Ladies and gents!

You are not going to believe this, but we have the elusive Howie Goldfarb on the Spin Sucks Inquisition today!

He appears as himself, not as Kanye West or Taylor Swift or another commenter, and it is glorious.

Many of you know him from the comments here. He is notorious for leaving comments that are the length of a novel, are smart, hilarious, and push some buttons all in one.

He’s not afraid to say what many of us think—no matter the topic—and he does it with such wit and humor that everyone wants to be his friend.

You will love seeing him in all of his glory and finally putting a face and a voice to the commenter, the debater, the voice of reason, and one of my dearest friends.

The Spin Sucks Inquisition

I asked Howie the normal questions (which you can find below):

  • Tell us who you are and what you do.
  • What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in the past six months?
  • What is one of the biggest trends you’ll be using this year?
  • What is one thing about yourself that would surprise most people?
  • What is the best book you’ve read in the last six months?
  • What is your latest Netflix binge?
  • The Five Second Rule.
  • Where can people find you online?

If you can’t access the video below, you can find it by clicking here.

    • My burningman ‘playa’ name was Kapowie. If I ever go back I am totally KanTayWie!

      • And when you write it (do people write at Burning Man?) you’ll do so in Big Green Pen, of course.

  • Will Spin Sucks wine glasses turn my box wine into better wine?

    • No. Because Spin Sucks wine glasses don’t allow box wine in them.

      • Can you tell me where to join the support group for non Spin Sucks wine glass owners? People are opening the wound all over the place. 😉

      • See? It’s good to have goals. My new goal is that you will send me Spin Sucks wine glasses for my birthday along with cake.

  • Will Spin Sucks wine glasses turn my boxed wine into better wine? I need magical wine glasses!

    • Yes! I pour boxed wine and it transforms into aged Boones Farm!

  • I haven’t even got past 30 seconds, and I already know this is gonna be awe-credible.

    • This Inquisition has more adorable giggles than all other Inquisitions.

  • speechless

    Hilarious! Nice to finally meet you, Kanye, um Taylor, I mean, Howie!

    Just so you know personal brand is a job, just like influencer is a job. Seen it on LinkedIn the other day, someone had as a job title: “Influencer.” Without a job description, but yeah, it’s a job! 😝

    Great inquisition!

  • Hi Howie!

  • Zeppelin is looking for kids.

  • My.Man.Howie.

    Mickey Mantle? Really?

    Nice flannel shirt, so have you been snow-bound and this is what help bring about the expectation of a new baby? Maple syrup is good for that.

    If you have any of that cannabis left over from your last gig that you decided not to do, can you send me some? I’ve never tried it before…

    So, what’s up w/ the Mets? Same thing as the Rays? At least I get to go to the Lightning playoffs.

    My screw cap wine goes very nicely in my Spin Sucks wine glasses.

    Good to see you sir; I’m not sure if I ever heard you talk before. Congrats on the new one if I heard you right. Take care my man and one of these days we’ll track each other down. Do you have good mountain bike trails near you? Is the Pope Catholic?

    • And ANOTHER Spin Sucks wine glasses reference. I am bereft.

  • I never realized how much Howie looks like Quentin Tarantino. Huh.

    Great video, and loved the honesty in the answer. No surprise there. 🙂

    Howie! Why can’t I find you on Snapchat?
