Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Seven years ago today, I was sitting in the lobby of the Carroll County Historic Court House waiting for a hearing related to the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt peace order, when Brett Kimberlin walked up to me and handed me an envelope. He was attempting to serve me with an amended copy of his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit and effect initial service of his Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (I) RICO Madness LOLsuits. Service was defective in both cases because Kimberlin personally served me. Parties can’t serve each other. If he’d simply handed the envelope to my lawyer who was sitting next to me, the service would have been proper.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Do you, on your blog, do you have a character [unintelligible] and Internet sheriff, Blogsmoke?

MR. HOGE: Ah, yes, um. A, um, website that I believe is associated with you called, ah, Breitbart Unmasked, ah, did a satirical piece about me, ah, trying to paint me as someone who’s the, ah, Internet sheriff and used the term Blogsmoke, and so I, ah, in return started a a feature that is a take off on the Gunsmoke radio program that was on in the ’50s. And, yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So you see yourself as the Internet sheriff?

MR. HOGE: No, I don’t. I consider it a way of poking fun at the people at Breitbart Unmasked by taking their idea and running with it and having a running gag that’s lasted for about two-and-a-half years now.

Microphones for Podcasting


Stacy McCain and I have been podcasting for almost three years, and I’ve had several questions about what microphones we use. We’ve been using Electro-Voice RE50B mics. The RE50 is a ruggedized version of the classic 635A dynamic microphone. The mic element is internally shock mounted, and there is a built-in pop filter. It’s an omnidirectional microphone, which means that it can be worked closely without significant bass boost. This allow me to get close to my mic without my bass voice becoming too muddy. If you’re looking for a rugged microphone for speech applications, the RE50B is a good choice. I’ve bought mine from Amazon.

If you need a directional microphone, the AKG P220 cardioid is a good choice. With a external pop filter (like at the PEMOTech), I’m able to work one as close as about a foot without too much bass boost. If I have to get closer, the P220 has a switchable bass cut filter that work very nicely. The P220 is a large-diameter condenser microphone and requires 48V phantom power. Again, I’ve bought mine P220s from Amazon. Amazon also carries the AKG P420 which is a dual-capsule version of of the 220. The 420 can operate with either a cardioid, omnidirectional, or figure-8 pickup pattern.

The links above will take you the Amazon pages for the microphones and the pop filter. Hogewash! participates in the Amazon Associates Program. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the claims that the Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin made in his LOLsuits is that people had made money off of writing about him and his activities. Of course, people make money writing about other people all the time. Folks are willing to pay for interesting, informative, or entertain writing that tells stories about other people. Kimberlin was never able to connect a defendant’s writing about him to any injury he suffered. More important, he was never able to show that anyone’s reporting about him was false. The TKPOTD from six years ago today deals with one of his futile attempts to follow the money.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin seemed especially interested in this blog’s ability to raise money. Here’s part of his direct examination of me during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit trial.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Right, so and every day you have a post called Team Kimberlin Post of the Day?

MR. HOGE: That’s one of the features of my blog.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Right, uh-huh. And you also have a donate button on your blog where you can raise money and ask people to donate to you, right?

MR. HOGE: Actually it’s called a tip jar, but yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Yeah, tip jar, uh-huh. Okay, and you started this campaign called Everybody Blog about the Howard County Prosecutors. Can you tell just why that was started?

MR. HOGE: Yes, the —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: Overruled.

MR. HOGE: Yes, Mr. Walker and his wife showed me credible evidence that you had, in fact, stalked them in the parking lot of the Howard County District Courthouse in Ellicott City. And when Mr. Walker and his wife went to talk with the State’s Attorney’s Office they were told by Assistant State’s Attorney Brewer that if they didn’t want to be harassed they should stay out of Maryland. And that didn’t strike me as responsible way for a State’s Attorney’s Office whether they’re going to nolle pross the, and not follow-up on charge or not, that just struck me as a very unfortunate attitude for a State’s Attorney’s Office. And so I thought they should be held accountable for it.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So you started this campaign and had people calling. How did it work?

MR. HOGE: Well basically the idea was that people should ask the State’s Attorney himself if that was, in fact, his policy.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So that’s where all this Maryland is for Stalkers kind of —

MR. HOGE: I have no idea where exactly that came from. I have seen that there was a blogger who for a short time had on Zazzle which is one of these internet sales companies a bumper sticker that said that. I think it was probably a parody on Virginia being for Lovers.

He brought up the Maryland is for Stalkers bumper sticker while Aaron Walker was on the stand as well. I don’t believe that it has been a very big seller, but it sure got under his skin. Of course, it’s entirely possible that it generated more sales than any of the Team Kimberlin merchandise that was offered by Brietbart Unmasked.

I wonder … is fundraising so precarious at JTMP and VRUS that TDPK is now jealous of my minor league blog?

Oh … one more thing … it seems to annoy Brett Kimberlin for folks to hit my Tip Jar.

* * * * *

I suspect that Kimberlin’s failure to generate traffic to online DONATE button may have made it more difficult to provide a smoke screen for funding from other sources.

For example, he seems to have vanishingly small traffic at the itstime2020 dot org site.

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.

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.

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.
