Brett Kimberlin has failed at almost everything he’s tried. He got caught smuggling drugs. He got busted as the Speedway Bomber. He’s failed as a pro se litigant.
The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with one of the instances of his failure as a musician.

Gentle Reader, do you ever wonder what the Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin does when he isn’t involved in vexatious lawsuit? He’s got himself a rock-and-roll band called Op-Critical. One of the sca … uh … promotions he’s attempted for the band was trying to get a performance by Op-Critical included in the soundtrack of the Twilight movie Eclipse.It shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with Op-Critical’s body of work to learn that Twilight Angel isn’t on the album. You can listen to The Dread Performer Kimberlin singing Twilight Angel on YouTube, but I don’t recommend doing so. Normally, folks with TDPK’s level of talent are advised not to give up their day jobs, but I’m not sure which causes more harm in Kimberlin’s case.

Almost all of Kimberlin’s business entities show some sort of paperwork deficiency when you run checks on them. One exception is Actup Enterprises Inc. On 17 July, Kimberlin took the steps necessary to restore it to good standing status with the State of Maryland. Actup has variously referred to itself as an artist representative and as a record label.
The Actup Enterprises web domain is gone, but while it was active, it only listed one performer as an artist—Kelsie Kimberlin. BTW, her recent music videos appear to have ben produced in Ukraine.
