Dave Raves! Fan of the Week Shares His Love For Horror Hosts!

 

10695332_10152763288633623_954055088_nSIR DAVID ALBAUGH is the co-owner of the horror blog site TERROR FROM BEYOND THE DAVES(terrordaves.com). Him and his partner, Dave Fuentes, began this site from their mutual love for past and current horror hosts. SIR ALBAUGH explains how he fell in love with Cinema Insomnia after witnessing his first CI episode of BUCKET OF BLOOD(1959),Blood

“Mr. Lobo’s CINEMA INSOMNIA was one of the shows that stood out as one of the good ones-I remember the days when these misunderstood films could be found quite regularly on late-night television so watching CI brought back some great memories”


Back in 2011, SIR DAVID got to meet MR.LOBO and DIXIE at HorrorHound in Indianapolis Indiana convention where the host was being honored for “Man of The Hour” and roasted by the organizers of the Horror Host Hall of Fame for 10 years of CINEMA INSOMNIA. He explained that meeting the Lobos in person added much more enjoyment to the convention for him. He expressed his gratitude toward MR.LOBO,

“Not only is Mr.Lobo extremely knowledgeable of these films but he is also a natural comic and his support of our site over the years has been greatly appreciated!”

“MR. LOBO” LIVES

JohnnyMr. Lobo was unable to log on to Facebook because of a name violation. “Mr. Lobo”, “Mister Lobo”, “M. R. Lobo”, and “Host MrLobo” are not acceptable names and are in violation of Facebook’s controversial “real” names policy.
Our leader’s account was suspended until he entered his documented legal name–including his (ulp) first name. Fortunately, “Lobo” is the mister’s given last name and it’s possible that he will be found by those who need him, but he is better known to his friends and fans and the world as MISTER LOBO.

This was the policy cited by the Thought Police–when MR. LOBO couldn’t log in this week: “Facebook is a community where people use their real identities. We require everyone to provide their real names, so you always know who you’re connecting with. This helps keep our community safe.”

Mister Lobo feels worst for his horror host friends and colleagues forced to CHANGE their chosen names, people escaping stalkers or a violent or unhappy past, those in law enforcement, educators, actors, performers, authors, activists, drag queens, hipsters, and, of course, house plants!

This is believed to be a plot on the part of Facebook to squeeze money out of professionals, personalities, and performers by forcing them to have “LIKE” pages instead. These perform in feeds based on “Pay-To-Play”. On the CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO FAN PAGES we are bullied by constant messages similar to “Want all your friends to see your posts? Promote this post for $20 a day.”

The plan now for MR. LOBO is to turn his personal page to a private page on October 1st. Of course we are on Twitter, Tumblr, Ustream, Google+  and elsewhere online. ON FACEBOOK, we will be focusing on the MR. LOBO FAN PAGE and the CINEMA INSOMNIA FAN PAGE!

IMG_1803Fan pages have a smaller reach than personal pages and Mr. Lobo will not be paying for “likes” or visibility. So please, share posts on your personal pages.

Facebook is the world’s worst place to connect and promote…MISTER LOBO is there because YOU are there. CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO are FOLLOWING you and want to have a convenient presence wherever you go. As always, we  put our faith in the true SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS to spread the good word of CINEMA INSOMNIA!

DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER!

May ED WOOD Help us In The Future! For now, Let’s praise The Sleepless Knight of the Week!

10668327_10204963666637883_1594485073_nREVEREND STEVE GALINDO, is the founder of THE CHURCH OF ED WOOD. Founded in 1996, he continues to represent the memory of Ed Wood through his very real religion.
He even legally canonized MR. LOBO as THE PATRON SAINT OF LATE-NIGHT MOVIE HOSTS AND INSOMNIACS.
REVEREND STEVE has also played a role in CINEMA INSOMNIA history by appearing in the episodes STARCRASH(1978) and BUCKET OF BLOOD(1959).

Edwoodstock PosterIn 2004, SAINT MR. LOBO and REVEREND STEVE hosted the memorable music and film festival EDWOODSTOCK, reaching out to many people about the world of ED WOOD and his misunderstood films. At least four baptisms in buckets of film occurred that memorable night for lucky fans.

Rev. Saint Mr. Lobo tells us more…

“Mr. Lobo joined the church online at EdWood.Org when Rev. Steve was still in Arizona. As fate would have it, he and the seat of his MIGHTY WORLDWIDE CHURCH moved to Sacramento, in the early days of the show. Cinema Insomnia had a midnight screening of TIM BURTON’S ED WOOD(1994) that I hosted for the Sacramento International film festival. We also did a 16mm Screening of Plan 9…and as a commendation for my work in bringing Ed Wood films to the public, I was canonized by Rev, Steve as a SAINT on October 5th, 2003.

http://edwood.org/concert/photos/hosting1.jpg

edwoodsavesWe put on an event for the Church called EDWOODSTOCK and Baptized people in buckets of film. We presented 3 bands and 2 films and some short subjects. We presented BRIDE OF THE MONSTER(1955) on the big screen and had Wood’s imagery behind the bands as they played! Steve Co-hosted and we were both interviewed for the SACRAMENTO NEWS & REVIEW. We had great chemistry and mutual respect…He played a beatnik customer in BUCKET OF BLOOD episode and a hologram of HIMSELF in the infamous banned episode STAR CRASH. I reference him and the church many times. My coveted PAL VHS copy of “ED WOOD’S I WOKE UP EARLY THE DAY I DIED”(1998) was a gift from the Reverend. We also had an adventure together http://concert.edwood.org/photos/new/sign1.jpgtrying to substantiate the now historically accepted reports that some of the Ghoul Man shots from PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE(1959) were filmed in a abandoned Cemetery in our Sacramento–where we both lived at the time. Sweet man, Holy Man! Really, Mr. Lobo should have been Steve’s fan of the Week!”

Ci_gigantisIt would seem these two iconoclasts did a lot to boost each other as well as the legacy of misunderstood movie director EDWARD D. WOOD JR.
Mr. Lobo and Reverend Steve have left Sacramento and California for greener pastures.  Today, he resides in Oklahoma, raising the next generation of CInsomniacs in his own home. His son, in particular, is a big fan of the classic CINEMA INSOMNIA episode featuring GIGANTIS THE FIRE MONSTER(1955).

TO SERVE A BIG BIG MAN – RICHARD “JAWS” KIEL 1939-2014

Broadcast live streaming video on Ustream>
At 1:01:01 on the timeline in CINEMA INSOMNIA’s PRESENTATION OF EEGAH! THE NAME WRITTEN IN BLOOD(1962) you will see Mr. Lobo’s interview with a Gentle Giant. 7ft-2in actor, RICHARD KIEL was a hero to me and–I assume–tall weird kids everywhere! As a youngster, everyday in school, I put my tin foil from my lunch in my mouth and pretended to be the metal toothed villain JAWS from the 007 Movies THE SPY WHO LOVED ME(1977) and MOONRAKER(1979).
Mr. LoboJaws showing teeth Moonraker saw Richard Kiel’s serious side when he gave me a lecture about being professional–I was late to our scheduled interview. I felt even smaller but learned an important lesson from a pro. In the same meeting I also saw his generous jovial and sweet side as our interview unfolded–as you will see in the clips we used for EEGAH!

He told me, he started his career as an actor just so he could buy clothes that fit him and sleep in a be that was his size. He starred in dozens of movies over the span of 50 years. He was bulb headed alien, The Kanomit, in the iconic and popular episode of Rod Serling’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE called TO SERVE MAN.
CInsomaniacs and MSTies know he was in THE HUMAN DUPLICATORS(1965) and was inside the unforgivably hot and uncomfortable dopey-dog-looking-alien costume in PHANTOM PLANET(1961).

He had lots of bit parts in legendary TV shows like GILLIGAN’S ISLAND, THE MONKEES, MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., FALL GUY, I SPY, SIMON AND SIMON, WILD WILD WEST, KOLCHACK: THE NIGHT STALKER, SID & MARTY KROFT’S LAND OF THE LOST and BORIS KARLOFF’S THRILLER. I remember watching movies like SILVER STREAK(1976) and SO FINE(1981) on TV and getting excited that he had cameos in them.

Though he traveled extensively to many conventions to meet his legions of movie fans–he was wracked with health problems and limited mobility–the curse of many GIANT performers. The body has to work a lot harder to support such a large frame and the bones break down. Everyone who visits autograph shows knows Chewbacca walks with a cane and JAWS is on a scooter. At some of these shows we were booked at side-by-side..he and his lovely wife were neighbors at our Wondercon appearance. We had to move both our tables to make room for the scooter. Once behind the table he would switch to a regular chair and summon this amazing energy for his fans–all signs of his weakening health became instantly invisible.

Kiel, a Fresno California resident, had broken his leg last week. Reportedly, a family member said he passed away this afternoon in a Fresno hospital. However, he will always remain LARGE and IN CHARGE on the BIG SCREEN and in our hearts. Mr. Lobo would like to think he just traded his scooter for wings!
