Sometimes, when you open a can of worms, it’s impossible to get them all collected and put back in the old can. This episode of Blogsmoke from four years ago today hints at how one of the character’s overreach would end up causing more trouble for him than he ever caused for anyone else.

More than any of the other members of Team Kimberlin, Bill Schmalfeldt has been a object of pointage, laughery, and mockification—and the source of opportunities for Shameless Commerce such as this post from six years ago today.

* * * * *

The easiest way to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfelt.

—Stacy McCain

Yep. And the easiest way to quote him wholesale is make his latest book more widely available. Why not let him embarrass himself in his own words?animus_nocendiYou can buy a copy from Amazon by clicking on this link. Of course, the Cabin Boy™ will make a few bucks on each sale, but so will I—and I’ll pass all the earnings through to the Bomber Sues Bloggers  [dead link] fund. [See below.]

UPDATE—The purpose of promoting this book is not to embarrass the Cabin Boy™. To do that, he would need to have a sense of shame, so embarrassment is clearly off the table. No, the purpose is to discredit him.

Any commission payments for purchase of the Cabin Boy’s™ book using the above link made from now until the end of September, 2020, will be donated the Parkinson’s Foundation.

The TKPOTD for six years ago today dealt with the meaning of words.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin keeps using these words.BK v AW 2013-71That example is from his second amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

odi·ous adj. \ˈō-dē-əs\ : causing strong dislike; arousing or causing repugnance.

in·fa·mous adj. \ˈin-fə-məs\ : well known for being bad or evil.

frighten verb \ˈfrī-tən\ : to cause (someone) to become afraid.
frightened • fright·en·ing

I can understand how someone might have a strong dislike for a person who set a time bomb in the parking lot of a high school football game. Someone who was convicted of a series of high-profile bombings might be considered to have become infamous. And being frightened of such a person is a perfectly reasonable reaction.

#IfTheShoeFits

Red TwizzlersSo Thursday could be a very big day. The Gentle Reader should stock up on popcornJujubesRaisinetsJunior Mints, or  Milk Duds. And if none of those work for you, we also have Red Twizzlers available via Amazon.

Stock up. Stay Tuned.

* * * * *

The possible big day on Thursday mentioned in the post referred to the final pretrial hearing in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance LOLsuit scheduled for the day after the post. The results of the hearing were mixed, but generally in the defendants favor. While we wound up having to go to trial, the court denied The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s motion for a preliminary injunction that would have shutdown our blogging about him.

Of course, by going to trial and losing, TDPK created the opportunity for even greater pointage, laughery, and mockification. Nothing proceeded as he had imagined.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


During the run up to the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al, nuisance LOLsuit trial, Brett Kimberlin seem particularly bothered by the reporting that Aaron Walker and I were doing on that case and the larger Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit in federal court. He sent a letter the judge in the federal case seeking permission to file a motion for a preliminary restraining order as a gag order against us. That simply resulted in more reporting on The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberli’s shenanigans here at Hogewash! and at other blogs. Here’s the TKPOTD from six years ago today.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin haz sad. He says that Aaron Walker and I called him bad names. This is from his letter seeking to file a preliminary injunction in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.ECF 163 at 1

Terrorist? Here’s what the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals said.

Kimberlin was convicted as the so-called “Speedway Bomber,” who terrorized the city of Speedway, Indiana, by detonating a series of explosives in early September 1978. In the worst incident, Kimberlin placed one of his bombs in a gym bag, and left it in a parking lot outside Speedway High School. Carl Delong was leaving the high school football game with his wife when he attempted to pick up the bag and it exploded. The blast tore off his lower right leg and two fingers, and embedded bomb fragments in his wife’s leg.

Kimberlin v. White, 7 F.3d 527 (6th Cir. 1993)

Forger? Here are his own word from the document docketed as ECF No. 102 in the RICO Madness.ECF 102-3That’s an admission that he forged the summons he sent to Twitchy. Also, he made this admission to Judge Ryon in a Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. hearing on 9 April, 2014, concerning a Certified Mail green card for a piece of mail sent to Ali Akbar.BK v AW 2013 0409 at 22

Perjurer? It’s a matter of public record that TDPK is a convicted perjurer, and he has admitted as much in open court multiple times since May, 2014. Furthermore, he’s been caught lying recently. For example, consider these responses to my requests for admissions in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.BK v AW 2013 Admission 21Pedophile? I haven’t called Brett Kimberlin a pedophile. However, I have seen evidence that leads me to understand why someone might hold that opinion. I suppose that if he wants to push the issue, those who might have used that word will put that evidence before the court. Some of it has been sealed, but not all of it has. Also, court records can be unsealed.

RaisinetesIf popcorn or Jujubes aren’t your favorites, Hogewash! is also offering a deal on Raisinets through Amazon.

Stock up today, and stay tuned.

Some Pro Audio Blogging


I had the opportunity to do some recording over last weekend. It was a fairly simple gig, a solo a cappella soprano singing a hymn.  The venue was a small church with nice acoustics.

I wound using a couple of pieces of new equipment that both performed better than I expected.

The microphone I used was an Audio Technica AT2050. It’s a multi-pattern large capsule condenser mic, I used it with its figure-8 pattern and was very pleased with its smooth response. It isn’t a Neumann U-87, but the street price is only around $250. I’ve bought a pair add to my bag of tricks.

Because I was recording without any equalization or signal processing, I used GarageBand on an iMac with a Motu M2 for the mic preamp and A/D convertor. Again, I was pleasantly surprised by the M2’s performance. They’re relatively new and have been hard to find, but they’re currently available on Amazon.The single USB connection between the M2 and the Mac simplified set uo, and I found it convenient to use the M2’s monitor output to drive a pair of powered loudspeakers.

Aside: These days, my go to mike for many voice applications is the Electro-Voice RE-50, and my usual pair of portable powered speaker are a couple of Neumann KH 80 DSPs. Using EV mics with Neumann loudspeakers seems a bit backwards to someone who started out in the audio business in the ’60s.

Back on track: I’ve also picked up an M2. Putting it together with a MacBook Prok, a pair of KH 80 DSPs, and a couple of mics and stands makes a neat, compact portable recording kit.

Good Luck With That


I ran this blog as a hobby until I retired for the first time in July, 2013. Since then, I’ve run it as a money making business with revenue streams from the Tip Jar, The Hogewash Store, and participation in the Amazon Associates program. I see that Bill Schmalfeldt has “retired” again and is trying to monetize his most recent YouTube channel.When I checked earlier this week, he had five subscribers. When I checked this morning, he had nine.If he keeps gaining subscribers at two per day, he should be able to meet YouTube’s criteria for monetization some time in 2048.Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
