I’M WATCHING TV – Classic Music Video from Cinema Insomnia

Mr. Lobo has been getting a lot of requests for this song lately from CInsomniacs and so-called normal people. A little creature feature cheer to liven up your week. C’mon sing-along!

“Laser beams are drillin’
a hole in my head
but I dont even feel it.

Zombies out for killin’
but I’m not scared at all
’cause I already seen it.

Nothing else matters to me

I’m watching TV
And I’m staying up late
I’m watching TV
And I’m feeling okay.

Vampire girls are lookin’
for the head of Hitler
so they can bleed it.

Giant Monster cookin’
Tokyo with atomic
fire to eat it

Nothing else matters to me

I’m watching TV
And I’m staying up late
I’m watching TV
And I’m feeling okay.

I’m watchin’ “Movies til’ Dawn”
Or when theres nothing on
I say “they’re not bad movies, just misunderstood.”

(Mr. Lobo  Rap)
Mr. Lobo must warn you
that tonight’s feature was used
by the local poison control center
to induce vomiting.
Don’t stay up late…It’s Not Worth it!
Nothing else matters to me

I’m watching TV
And I’m staying up late
I’m watching TV
And I’m feeling okay.”

CInsomniac Pride!

Slime Line #009: Carnival of Souls


Rondo Hatton was THE CREEPER in classic horror films. Reportedly his face was distorted by mustard gas, but Mr. Lobo is now told he actually had Acromegaly. Regardless, he was larger than life and twice as scary. Often imitated in films like Dick Tracy and The Rocketeer!Annex - Hatton, Rondo (House of Horrors)_01

Rondo lives today as the namesake for an award given for achievement in classic horror.
Zacherley, Vampira, Count Gore De Vol, Svengoolie, Penny Dreadful and many other horror hosts have been honored in the past.

Nominees for the Rondo are selected from suggestions by horror fans, pros and enthusiasts offered all year at the Classic Horror Film Board.

IMG_1523Your Cinema Insomnia host, Mr. Lobo and producer Dixie Dellamorto have traveled across their great nation meeting Cult Movie Elite, Friends, and fans along the way.

They have arrived at their haunted but happy headquarters in rural PA. Private–yet reasonably close to all of the conventions, film festivals, productions, and collaborators in the region we now are calling the Cradle of Horror Fandom.lobo 4

At present Mr. Lobo and Dixie Delemorto are building a home studio and will be driving 2 hours south to shoot Cinema Insomnia episodes at the amazing Zom-Bee TV studios in Chantilly VA.

The channel itself is doing a lot of restructuring behind the scenes with Mr. Lobo’s help. Zom-Bee TV just officially launched with a 3-Day weekend event called the Zom-Bee TV Freakend Festival at the Alamo Drafthouse in Winchester, VA. Mr. Lobo was there in person and was greeted by many fans who drove long distances to meet their favorite Horror Host.lobo5

The big move had caused some delays in the Cinema Insomnia Animation Jam created by Mr. Lobo and organized by Neoflux Productions but they are ramping it up again now that they are more settled on the East Coast.

Filmmakers are asked to submit 10 to 30 second animated sequences based on Mr. Lobo’s Sea-Monkey spoof in different styles and techniques.
