Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


One of the most persistent wastes of Internet bandwidth inflicted on the Universe by Team Kimberlin is the op-critical dot com website that allegedly promotes The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s band Op-Critical. Seven years ago, I posted #BrettKimberlin and Op-Critical which noted … oh, I’ll let it speak for itself.

* * * * *

Tuesday night, I posted a review of the CD released by Brett Kimberlin’s previous band Epoxy. His most recent music group is called Op-Critical. The band has a website, a rather stale one that doesn’t appear to have been updated for several years.

While nosing about the site, I found these lyrics as part of a song called Fork

I am losing all control and I just don’t know what to do …

Yep, we are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

You have gone past the outer limit of what you might have been able to control, but the truth will bring clarity. But clarity may not be your friend.

* * * * *

Yep. The result of The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberli’s lawfare campaign of brass knuckles reputation management was that he lost control of his public persona.

Oh, and as for the op-critical dot com website, it doesn’t seem to have been updated since my post was published in 2012. Here’s a snapshot of it from yesterday evening.

This appeared in my Twitter Notifications yesterday—I went over to MySpace (yes, it’s still on the web) and checked out the Op-Critical (Brett’s most recent band) songs posted there. While I was able to see the web pages for them, I couldn’t get any of them to play. All were posted during the 2003 to 2012 period supposed to be affected.

BTW, the times played listed for every one other of the songs I checked were all the same. Karma seems to be catching up with The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin.

Lying liars gotta lie, and that explains the bulk of the nonsense that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has put out in support of his lawfare. The TDPOTD from four years ago today cataloged this set of lies.

* * * * *

Here’s an interesting claim from one of Exhibit 7 of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s omnibus opposition to the motions to dismiss his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness. ECF 231 EX7-9The SAC (that’s the second amended complaint) alleges that the mythical RICO enterprise began picking on Brett in August, 2010, although it doesn’t mention any specific acts occurring until October. So what sort of “social causes” was The Dread Performer Kimberlin “highlighting” before August, 2010? Well, in March of that year he was promoting teenage love with werewolves.Op-Crit Tweets

As for TDPK’s claim that he was unable to produce songs and videos after August, 2010, Freakin Frackin was posted to YouTube on 12 January, 2011; Occupy Music Video: Anonymous was posted to YouTube on 17 June, 2011; Coal Miner’s Family was posted to YoutTube on 5 December, 2012; and that’s not a complete list of TDPK’s work published online since 2010.

The most amazing things about Brett’s lying is how clumsy he is with it. You’d think that after all those years of practice, … oh, never mind.

The Twilight Angel video is still up on YouTube. I don’t recommend listening to it unless you have a large quantity of industrial-strength weapons-grade ear bleach available.

The Gentle Reader who is familiar with The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s background may draw his own conclusions about why Op-Critical might put out a music video related to a movie targeted at underage girls.

As part of a continuing search to find a relevant cause that would motivate donors, Justice Through Music Project got involved with the anti-fracking movement. the TKPOTD from five years ago today dealt with part of that effort.

* * * * *

Justice Through Music Project has posted another music video on YouTube. It’s a sorta/kinda cover of John Prine’s Paradise. It’s an anti-natural-resource-extraction propaganda piece aimed at the Keystone XL pipeline. In fact, the band calls themselves the Keystone Pipeline Kops instead of Op-Critical.

Now, if I were Brett Kimberlin, I would avoid having anything to do with any song from John Prine’s first album lest I remind listeners of other songs from that album that might have unfortunate references to drug dealing, porn, etc.

Sam Stone: “There’s a hole in daddy’s arm where all the money goes.”

Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore: “While digesting Reader’s Digest in the back of a dirty book store …”

Illegal Smile: “Won’t you please tell the man I didn’t kill anyone …”

Just sayin’ …

The failure of The Dread Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s music career sounds like a real Dear Abby.

One of the claims that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has made in his LOLsuits is that all of us bloggers writing truthful things about him have hurt his ability to write and produce his songs and music videos. As this post from five years ago demonstrates, some folks might view a reduction in The Dread Deadbeat Performers output to be a good thing.

Brett Kimberlin fancies himself a great musician. (H/T, Kimberlin Unmaksked)

The term “delusions of adequacy” comes to mind.

UPDATE—Here’s a statement made by a Justice Through Music Project spokesman (not Brett Kimberlin) about the time this video was released:

We want videos that have staying power, that make a cultural statement, and that have an emotional component to them so that they will influence youth. Politicians spend hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars on ads to influence middle class America, and they basically ignore young people totally; and we feel like the music videos are like the cultural statements or the ads for young people, so we hope to get them involved and influence them to make the right decision in November.

Uh, huh.

Kimberlin and Op-Critical really ought to do a cover of I Fought the Law (And the Law Won).

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.Op-Crit TweetsEar-plugsIt 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.
