The guy behind Bring a Loupe, a weekly fest of rancid hype, and the mastermind of the redial-and-frankenwatch-selling fleecer's den called the Hodinkee Shop, Louis, is no longer with Hoodwinkee. That being only weeks after the Donkeys have sold another franken! Coincidence, or justice?
For two weeks, there hasn't been a Bring a Loupe, which means two weeks of peace for the vintage watch market.
And only yesterday, there's this announcement...
I wonder if that's a coincidence, or could it be, that after months of heavy Bring a Brain barrage at WUS (with thousands of views - BaB XIV alone got north of 5600!), my wee crusade has finally brought some results?
I dearly hope, that whoever the successor to Louis might be, won't do the same thing, or at least will know certain limits on open lies and cons at the site (pronounce the S the Sean Connery way) and the Shop. Yes, sadly Hoodwinkee wants to continue Bring a Loupe, the piece to which Bring a Brain owes its name. I would find it odd if they didn't.
May I only announce this: should this be a sign of Hoodwinkee improving, there will be less Bring a Brains coming, since I only publish these when it's necessary, when shit hits the fan, and the community turns a blind eye, because "hey, it's Hodinkee, and they can't be wrong."
But to Jove I swear, that should it get worse, Bring a Brain shall give the Donkeys no quarter. If so, it will appear regularly, the bombardment will be heavier than ever, and the show will go on, presented to you by yours truly, in the best possible way- the Bring a Brain way.
Fare thee well and good riddance, Louis, I'm glad that thou no longer art in the business of fleecing, lies and hype. Go collecting like we do, experience the shit you've been fueling for so long, that fucking inferno that you've been putting out with high-octane bloody gasoline.
Meanwhile, we - we the WIS community - can enjoy the (hopefully not particularly) short period of peace.
End of communique.
