Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin really wanted to be a famous musician, but his persistence in the face of his lack of talent became a prime source of material for ridicule. Of course, saw truthful commentary about his musicianship as grounds for a claim in one of his LOLsuits. The TKPOTD for eight years ago debunked the claim.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin alleges in his proposed second amended complaint for his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness that the coverage of his antics by my codefendants and me has adversely affected his music career. This is from paragraph 204.ECF 100-204I think that anyone who has had the misfortune to listen to one of his recordings or music videos would agree with me that a proper response to Brett Kimberlin’s music is “Don’t give up your day job.”

This was one of the comments to the original post. This is the link in the comment.—And this saved image is an example of the sort of pointage, laughery, and mockification Kimberlin Unmasked delivered.—

Heh.

That cartoon got so deeply under Brett Kimberlin’s skin that he questioned me about it when he called me as a defense witness in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit.

Q   Do you ever post graphics or photos of you as a Star Wars Hero?

A   I have, people have sent me graphics of my face to replace, who’s the guy that played Obi-Wan Kenobi, the older fellow? This is what happens when you’re old. Alec, Sir Alec Guinness with my face instead of Alec Guinness’ as Obi-Wan in, in various cartoons. I think they’re funny, and I’ve, I’ve posted a few that have sent me, and other people have, have picked up on that, as well, and sort of run with it. It’s a, it’s, it’s kind of a running gag now in certain corners of the internet.

The jury’s reaction to that exchange went almost exactly as the Gentle Reader might have foreseen.

Hogewash! has not been the only blog to ridicule Team Kimberlin. Kimberlin Unmasked was another. I suspect that KU was taking a poke at Brett Kimberlin’s physical stature when he/she/they began depicting him as a yappy little chihuahua. I took note of his/her/their Pro Se Dog character eight years ago today.

Pro Se Dog

ProSeDogUPDATE—Com’on, Pro Se, do the loco motions!

KU would often post comments here at Hogewash!, and I saved some of those images. Here’s one that expanded on the loco motions theme.

I miss the cockroach.

This site isn’t the only one on the Interwebz which has poked fun at Team Kimberlin. The TKPOTD for seven years ago reposted this—

One of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s less than successful LOLsuits was his copyright case against Kimberlin Unmasked. It seems as much motivated by Jealousy and Butthurt as reputation management.

* * * * *

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s current lawfare isn’t limited to the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. and the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. vexatious lawsuits. He has also filed a frivolous copyright suit against the anonymous blogger(s) Kimberlin Unmasked. There are lots of defects in the copyright suit, not the least of which is the fact that TDPK admits in the suit that he’s not the holder of some of the copyrights he is suing over.

Reading over the suit again, it seems to me that a big part of TDPK’s motivation for the suit is jealousy. His websites have vanishingly small presence on the Internet. OTOH, those of us who have been blogging about him have much higher traffic.BK v KU ECF1-15In essence, TDPK is bitching because others are more creative and more successful with his material than he is. Their Fair Use parody and criticism has more real world impact than his original work. Unfortunately for TDPK, butthurt is not a cause of action under copyright law.

While Kimberlin was able to induce a couple of people to settle the case with him and he did get control of the kimberlinunmasked dot com web domain, a new kimberlinunmask dot com site quickly appeared and the pointage, laughery, and mockification has continued.

Failing failures gotta fail.
