Quarantine Cafe/
Tim Pool "Extorted" by Brother for Money in Dispute Over Company?

Only some readers like or follow Tim Pool, so I figure I'll just make this part of the quarantine cafe.

Two videos below from The Quartering explain the Chris Pool allegations against his brother Tim Pool. Tim Pool, Chris Pool, and others involved have talked to the Quartering and shared DMs, so he's informed, though definitely on Tim Pool's side.

The short story -- as related by The Quartering, who, again, seems to support Tim -- is that Tim Pool's brother had a company called "Subverse." I don't know how much of a company this was -- all that seems to be talked about is the company name (or "brand," as Tim Pool's brother now calls it) and a domain name.

Apparently they all planned to work together on Subverse, but Chris Pool admits in an email that he did no work on the project for a year. His excuse is that he had a "broken hand." A boxer doesn't take off more than a few days with a broken hand; he only avoids hitting with the hand itself for a 4 or 5 weeks. I don't know how someone skips out of office work for a year and says "but I had a broken hand."

Anyway, Tim Pool doesn't dispute that Chris Pool "founded" this company, whatever it was, and did register a domain name. But in texts and DMs, Chris Pool admits that the company, as it stands, is "worthless," and that he did no work on it, and further, he offers to give it to Tim Pool.

Flash forward until the last couple of months. Apparently Tim Pool did a Go Fund Me for the business, and he got $1.2 million to start the company up (for real, this time). And now Chris Pool starts making complaints that Tim Pool schemed to take away his company and his "brand," and wants $333,000.

Also, apparently Tim Pool let this guy stay at his house for free, for months. He seems to be YouTuber who doesn't make many YouTube videos, so I don't know if he has much income.

When Tim Pool refused to hand over the cash, Chris Pool started threatening to release information about Tim Pool online, like "who he voted for" in 2016. (Confronted with this by The Quartering, Chris Pool now says the threat was just a joke. Um, okay.)

It seems to be the case that the company was worthless when Chris Pool quit it and gave it to Tim, and now it seems to be worth something, with almost no contribution from Chris Pool. But now Chris Pool wants a cut of the value he did not create.

Anyway, the videos are short. Watch them if you're interested. The second video shows relevant DMs and emails.


Not this kind of model.

Oh, one more thing:

Bill Withers -- songwriter and performer of "Lean on Me," "Just the Two of Us," "Lovely Day," and "Ain't No Sunshine" -- passed away.

If I'm remembering right, he was a Navy radio technician. That led him to sound engineering work, and then to producing his own songs.

If it's nice out tomorrow, try to have a nice walk.
