Mr. Lobo insists that the higher demand for newer color pictures and the disappearance of the original proof are the main reasons it’ll be harder to get this photo in the future and not contract negotiations. The usually outspoken houseplant with a history of drinking problems had no comment but is slated to be in the studio this week and will be in at least 3 of the new episodes in production. You can still get other 8×10′s here at the Horror Hosts and Creature Features Etsy Shop.
CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO has been on ABC and other major broadcast affiliates, UPN superstations, Cable Networks, Cable Systems, Satellite Networks, College Stations, Leased Access, Public Access, and almost any kind of TV you can think of–In their crusade to keep Late Night TV Fun FREE. While waiting for new CINEMA INSOMNIA shows to appear on the ROKU “Connected Television” channel ZOM-BEE TV…enjoy this highlight from Cinema Insomnia’s 3 year run on San Francisco Bay Area via KTEH and KCAH. Special thanks to Ken Patterson and CInsomniac Ajarera for this consolidated edit of the 4 hour event featuring the classic sci-fi film DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS uploaded to our archive at Lobovision.TV.
MEME AND YOU!
Memes are a cultural cootie that spread from person to person. A popular mode or behavior that grows and multiplies by imitation and duplication and not by genetic means or public toilet seats.
We tumble, google, tube, twit, insta-gramble and book-face electronic images, videos and bumper sticker bubblegum and they are passed electronically from one Internet user to another–some are seen by untold trillions of life forms and transform the way we live.
TO MEME OR NOT TO MEME?
Hard to say if Memes are a cause or symptom–but the state of communication and entertainment has changed. Over the past 10 years 50% fewer Americans have televisions. Many people can’t talk on the telephone or write a letter in cursive. Newspapers have folded and magazines have been quartered. Even the food stamps that artists, filmmakers, musicans and writers depend on are electronic . A two hour TV show wrapped around broken down movies is a hard sell for folks who like to piece together their entertainment one still image and bad joke at a time.
MR. LOBO REACHES OUT TO THE MEME GENERATION!
We do know that there are CInsomniacs living among the internet generation–They need to know they are not alone. They need to know that Mr. Lobo cares. There is a war of ideas going on–all sides are fighting for real estate in your brain-pan–and most of the soldiers are unarmed.
This is why Mr. Lobo incourages ambitious fans to deconstruct his CINEMA INSOMNIA episodes and make memes out of them. With your help our hard work and ideas can also be snorted at and instantly dismissed by 87 Million People…
To what cultural effect? Who knows? If Years from now, just one poor soul out of 87 Million has an epiphany and seeks out CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO and is saved…than all this meme warfare would probably be considered a waste of time. But lets hope our Mr. Lobo’s Meme hunt is more successful than that.
Thanks to CInsomniacs Elissa Lynn, Dixie Dellamorto, Lawrence Laney Loftin, Andrew Leung, and Sci-Fi Bob Ekman for getting into our heads and helping us kick off the Great Mr. Lobo Meme Hunt.
CINSOMNIACAT CAPTION CONTEST
Copy and caption this photo–we have a random link to a quick meme generator we found on Google below. But you can caption it however you like and post wherever you like. You can also post ideas for captions on this like a blog. We will post our favorites here on the Cinema Insomnia site.
CINSOMNIACAT or “Tard”(No relation to the Grumpy Cat “Tardar Sauce”) is a hermaphrodite–female internals, but no nipples–blind in one eye and is totally schizophrenic. One of those cats that will let you pet her, then attack. Funny, right?
THANKS FOR THE MEME-ORIES!
The host of Cinema Insomnia has been invited to be a special guest at RetoCon at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks this September. This is Mr. Lobo’s first year at this show and he couldn’t be prouder. There are talks of a video presentation of sorts. PLAN 9 co-star James “Angry Video Game Nerd” Rolfe will also be in attendance along with a plethora of nostalgic and nerdy guests. Find all the geeky details here!
JACOB LeBeau(No Relation) is a 10 year old from South Carolina who draws original artwork, as well as, fan art, parody art, and commissioned art. His dream is to raise enough money with his Etsy Sales to attend and have a table at Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Comic Book Coventions. His artwork will be featured in an upcoming episode of Cinema Insomnia in a mail sack segment. Please support his efforts we think Jacob is great! (His Etsy page is under adult supervision, and anyone who thinks any differently is a big dummy head )
Post-Modern multimedia survivor Mr. Lobo is back in PA in time for the National Haunters Convention this weekend and has a lot of stories to share with his horror colleages. Your Cinema Insomnia host and his young producer/bride just did four straight days of intensive shooting, production, and creative magic with Dale Jackson and his team at ZOM-BEE TV studios in Northern Virginia.
ZOM-BEE TV is a new FREE horror channel for CONNECTED TELEVISION that is currently on the affordable ROKU STREAMING PLAYER but will soon be infecting SMART TVs, GAME SYSTEMS, and SMART PHONES…
Even though the creator and host of Cinema Insomnia is still viewable on AMGTV affiliates on terrestrial TV…During the 12 years on the air the number of American who even have a standard TV in their home has dropped in half and Cable and Satellite are steadily declining. DVD sales have dropped off. For Mr. Lobo the writing seems to be on the wall…and Internet Based Streaming Television seems be a likely video successor.
“It reminds me of when UHF was new”– “It allows for all kinds of funky and creative home-grown programing and commercials.” said the extremely prolific horror host Mr. Lobo who seemed energized on set where he recorded footage for 2 and a half new episodes of his 2 hour program and around 40 or more spots for the channel and it’s new sponsors to be inserted in all the channels programs. The spots are 10-60 seconds long and will have MR. LOBO fans howling during the breaks.
“We are working with sponsors that will fit in with the lifestyles of our viewers and ones who will allow us to have fun with their products with a little “tongue in cheek” humor. These sponsors on this first wave of ads get the material and they respect the audience. Fans “get” that Mr. Lobo is a “TV guy” and sponsors make the shows possible and keep the channel free…Mr. Lobo hopes they like our sponsors products and buy them–because I really enjoyed making these commercials.”
Don’t worry–Mr. Lobo will still be wrapping around the low-rent royalty free horror stuff on CINEMA INSOMNIA, but he is very excited to be presenting some newer licenced indie films–like the 2006 dark comedy CYXZORK 7 , a horror monster musical called A HARD DAYS NIGHTMARE, and VERY MISUNDERSTOOD 2013 film MIDGET ZOMBIE TAKEOVER.
“Mr. Lobo is very interested in discovering overlooked films new and old.”
Producer and channel visionary Dale Jackson of ZOM-BEE will be at the NATIONAL HAUNTERS CONVENTION with Mr. Lobo where they will be shooting more content for the channel. If you have a product that you would like to promote to ZOM-BEE’s 50,000 or so subscribers and would like to have Mr. Lobo as your writer and spokesperson email Dale Jackson at ZOM-BEE TV firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe, Mr. Lobo can start hocking Waterbeds, Kitchen Gadgets, Chia Pets and Silm Whitman Records–UHF LIVES AGAIN!
Dueling Horror Hosts! This was from a recap of the first 10 episodes from the first season 2010-2011. A choose your own adventure type series that allowed Youtube viewers to vote on the outcome. MR.
