2016.01.04 Ken Whitman Starts Off the New Year by Doing Nothing on Kickstarter

2016.01.04 Ken Whitman Starts Off the New Year by Doing Nothing on Kickstarter
Not-Another-Dime has been slow as of late, largely because there hasn't been a lot of new information "out there". I went ahead and checked the usual spots and noticed a couple of things of interest:

1st is the fact that our hero Ken Whitman managed to login to his Kickstarter Account today......and I cannot find any evidence of an update on any of his projects.

Makes me wonder what Ken Whitman, or Whit Whitman, or whatever it is he is trying to call himself these days...has been doing. Producing products that he sold years ago is definitely not the answer. There still hasn't been a sighting of the softcover KoDT

20 Years of Covers
book out in "the wild". No sign of the KoDT DVDs or pretty much anything having to do with Pencil Dice, Spinward Traveller, or Deck Dice. The Castle & Crusades folks have basically stepped in to take care of those screwed backers on some level.

Nothing new to report on the Kickstarter front.....

....but there was an interesting tidbit in one of the KoDT: LAS comments.....

Jolly Blackburn, of Kenzer & Company fame (i.e. the man who created the Knights of the Dinner Table that Ken Whitman raped for a $70K+ payday) commented that Yep - this dude is gone gone GONE. Not a peep. Doesn't even have the decency to bring backers up to date. Hope he had fun at his new year;s eve party in Duluth.

KoDT: LAS Comment January 4, 2016

Duluth? Now I've heard of this place before and it took me a bit to remember why*. Ken, or Whit, Whitman did a brief stint in Atlanta, allegedly working in the film industry, and stated publicly that he was "headed for Vegas". My sources tell me that was just a lame feint and that he really moved to Duluth, GA. Duluth is practically a suburb of Atlanta...well it is less than 30 miles away, so close enough.

I'm willing to be that Ken Whitman's "move" to Atlanta was really to Duluth, but why Duluth? Usually when folks move out of state they try to find a place close to friends or family.....and then that is what clicked for me. Ken Whitman's buddy Ed Kramer lives in Duluth, or at least does according to his Wikipedia page. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Ed Kramer should still be on house arrest in Duluth, GA.

Of course this may be total coincidence and every reader of this blog should question everything.....


*I have a great source telling me that Ken Whitman is in Duluth, or at least was as of early November, but I won't reveal said source unless I really had to.

  1. It looks like one of the actors from Spinward asked him when the "movie" of Spinward would be released. I am sure she meant show, but Ken did respond "January". Why not just post that on Kickstarter? I doubt it is to be believed.

    1. "Big update by Jan 15." where was that posted?

    2. Facebook page of "Whit Whitman" in response to the question, "How is this movie coming along?" by Richard Lewis. Looks like facebook friends get more updates than actual backers of the project.

  3. Ken on his Facebook page (Walt Whitman) promised to have a Spinward Traveler big update on Jan. 15th

  4. It's a pity that the Whitman phrase "big update coming" really means "I'm not planning on doing anything." BtW, "Brian Lewis" is listed as the performer for the Jon Spinward character. "Richard Lewis" seems to be an independent individual and one of the facebook friends.

  5. Never heard of Ed Kramee, but after a quick research...holy shit his criminal history is terrifying.

    That's who Whitman hangs out with???

  6. If this is true it would make sense... When you stoop as low as shitwhit has, pieces of disgusting shit like Ed Kramee are the only caliber of "friends" you have left.

  7. I think a better tack would be to note that Kramer was wealthy at the time he came into contact with Ken Whitman. It is easy to assume that the criminal exploits of Mr. Kramer somehow "rubbed off" onto Ken Whitman, but another (less fantastic) explanation is that Kramer had money at a time when Ken needed money (for the Brothers Barbarian series)...thus, a convenient "friendship" was formed. Ken is known for these kinds of "friendships." I doubt that Ken would like to be associated with Kramer right now. The mystery is why he would stay with Kramer when Kramer has had problems serving house arrest before.

    1. Because they are both low life pieces of shit. One's foul stench is indistinguishable from the other, so they have no problem coexisting with one another.

  8. Kramer is still wealthy for the record. There's the family inheritance and there's the fact DragonCon bought him out.

    1. I wonder about Kramer's financials. His attorneys, which make the Texas Affluenza kid's attorneys look like saints, have surely taken a huge chunk, if not all, of his money considering how long they have been in action. You cannot fight the state for more than a decade at $200/hour and not rack up a huge bill. Admittedly, the vile piece of garbage had his blind supporters who may have assisted in paying his lawyer fees.

      Not having backed the KS I just discovered this Whitman fiasco and wow, I'm speechless. Been going down the rabbit hole and reading all I can about this and I'm left with the very inarticulate thought of what a dick Whitman is.

      I'm in Roswell, right next door to Duluth, so if you guys ever nail down where he is (maybe track the trail of slime he must leave behind?) I'd be happy to serve papers. :)

  9. Anyway I don't care who Ken hangs with or associates with. My problem with him for the last two years has been the way he's treated people. Espeically his 'friends'. They are disposable to him. He burns bridges without a thought. The fact he took so many people for money is just the collateral damage. Only reason he's upset presently is because social media has changed the land scape. People he's burned and/or lied to can now compare notes. Kickstarter comments are forever and can't be deleted or controlled by him. Bloggers such as the host here can dig and compiled his own words going back 20 years. (to me the most damning thing for Ken is the Ken Sez page on this blog http://notanotherdime.blogspot.com/p/ken-s.html).

    Haven't heard a peep from Ken since Thanksgiving btw, after he demanded a $300 ransom for a hard drive to put the raw footage of KODT LAS on. That's the type of guy we're dealing with. His implied threat was that he would destroy the raws footage by adding if his current drive failed, "oh well. You had your chance to save it."

    I am so done with guy at this point. I will assist anyone if I can in trying to get their money back from him but I'm done trying to get him to do the right thing. It's just not in him.
