New theories keep coming–For whatever reason, he is still here among us and we just have to accept it. We’d like to thank all you CInsomniacs for the flood of emails, posts, transmissions, and other types of birthday wishes that have been rolling in via various media, devices, technologies, disciplines, and networks.

Our SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS OF CINEMA INSOMNIA or CINSOMNIACS have been loyally serving as ambassadors for Mr. Lobo by word of mouth and by sharing printed materials like our famously stylish postcards since forever and always. But the war for late night fun is still going on and there is always more “positive propaganda” to distribute.
Gobbled up at conventions this “B-Movie mini-poster” design is back in print and now sports a brand new ZOM-BEE TV logo on the front and an entirely new backside featuring the lovable “Ready Roku” and his pals explaining how you can watch CINEMA INSOMNIA and ZOM-BEE TV on your TV.
As a official fan club member you will have the dynamic opportunity to represent CI and have fun getting mass media consumers to think inside the box again.
If you have that gutsy stuff and “suicide-bomber-like” follow-through to put these postcards in the hands of like-minded friends, potential viewers, film festival and horror convention attendees, etc. contact us privately. Perhaps you’ve thought of an even better way to use these visual aids to properly wash the brains of the uninitiated…we’d love to hear it.
You can reach Mr. Lobo’s answering machine on his desk at 1-317-4-LOBOTV or his computation terminal via his electronic mail address: email@example.com.

A WARNING for all who are watching The CINEMA INSOMNIA HAUNTED HOUSE SPECIAL premiering HALLOWEEN NIGHT on ZOM-BEE TV for ROKU. It was recorded in what many experts and locals believe is a “real” Haunted House. We can’t show you the house here at the request of the owners. We also don’t want to spoil what the actual rooms look like until the show premieres.
This claim has been recently given more validity by one of our fans, Gern Blaith of Indiana who brought to our attention a photo we originally published here on this website a few days ago. The house was dark as we had to supply our own electricity and some strange light play is happening in this photo.Some upsetting history about the house built in the 1800′s came out while making the special. The old woman who owned the rural farm house often wandered and was often found by the locals far from home disoriented and confused. The story goes she was locked in her room and checked on every few days. Desperate scratch marks and locks were still on the walls in the bedroom where she died.
The crew on the special have interesting incidents to share. Before Zom-Bee TV began restoring the rooms for shooting. A thief broke in an stole all the mantles and radiators from the home. The set builders had to recreate the beautiful mantles using the broken tiles from the original mantles that were scattered on the floor. They needed one more piece of wood to finish the mantle for the front room featured in the Halloween Special. They searched the whole house top to bottom for a spare piece of wood and found nothing. Before leaving the remote area for Home Depot they decided to look one more time and in a very conspicuous spot in one of the bedrooms they say they found a piece of wood that fit the mantle to the millimeter.
Another story, The staff at Zom-Bee TV completely cleaned up the front room that it could be restored and decorated for production. They came in the next day and found one lone cut-out newspaper obituary from 1958. They thought the owner was trying to fool them–but he was very elderly and religious so this is an unlikely explanation. They left an empty prop scrapbook in one of the rooms. Later they came back and found more obituary clippings under carpets and behind doors. They picked up the scapbook a pile of 20 or so obits fell out that were not there before. Some were written on in pencil with specific dates–all were from 1958.
During production of the Halloween Special. Mr. Lobo, Dixie Dellamorto and Dale Jackson were doing some pick up shots. Loud scratching noises in the condemned kitchen made recording of scenes impossible. Thinking it was a large rat or possum the director made loud noises, clapped, and even threw pieces of tile–but it refused to stop. Eventually, after throwing half a box of old tiles the noises tapered off. Typically, rodents leave or hide during any commotion. Due to structural danger we were not allowed to be in that part of the house so we never saw what it was.
In light of all this data…we took another look at the photo and we can’t explain what we found. Do you see a face?
