Mr. Lobo’s official YouTube channel

has been “terminated” by YouTube.

We do think that these shows should be free for you to watch as it is broadcast over the air free and clear to TVs all over the country and that having the shows on YouTube could only help the show. The show will still be viewable on most AMGTV affiliates, THE MONSTER CHANNEL on the web, and the upcoming Roku type internet based television channel ZOMBEE TV.

From the YouTube channel’s launch a year ago, Cinema Insomnia episodes received many claims of copyright infringement. These claims come from dubious sources–competitors, distributors of PUBLIC DOMAIN content, robots that matched our FAIR USE content with another FAIR USE of same content, and AD hogs who hope a claim will allow them to imbed ads on our more popular pages.

Even unfounded and unfair claims will get your channel booted from their miserable service. We had one too many claims and right or wrong CINEMAINSOMNIATV is now deleted.

However, due to a recent acquisition of our old distributor’s remaining stock, we still have about 60 out-of-print DVDs in house that are for sale. This is a great opportunity for those who of you who love the show and would like to own them in a fixed way that can’t be taken away on a corporate whim.

Please contact your Cinema Insomnia host Mr. Lobo personally for a list of titles.

Wherever you may dwell, know that the protective hypnotic eye is with you always!

So far we have the shot 2 and ½  more brand new Cinema Insomnia episodes with Virginia horror host legend Jerry Moore II as producer and Mr. Lobo has made an appearance on his program Monster Madhouse – a DC area staple!

Gravely Macabre of Midnight Monster Hop and Castle Blood, Pittsburg PAMr. Lobo was the main judge for a Horror Make-Up contest at THE NATIONAL HAUNTERS CONVENTION in Oaks, PA where Mr. Lobo made some great conacts and  also had a sit down interview with Pittsburgh host Gravely Macabre for Horror Hosts and Creature Features magazine. Richmond filmmaker Eric Miller and the folks at the ZOM-BEE horror channel in Northern VA are slated to co-produce more CI for you that will be available for viewing worldwide in the near future.

Cinsomniacs! Mr. Lobo and the Lady Dellamorto will be going back East for another tour of duty. Our first stop is the NATIONAL HAUNTER’S CONVENTION in Oaks, Pennsylvania on May 4rd, 5st, and 6nd…er, that is, May 4th, 5th, and 6th! Calanderology was never Mr. Lobo’s best subject. There you will see attractive attractions, amazing props, haulin’ hearses, amazing masks and make ups and even horror hosts like myself and the shows founder Gravesly Macabre from Midnight Monster Hop! Mr. Lobo will have a table and will also be performing on the Main Stage. If you’re not there, you better be dead…and even death is a poor excuse.

Congratulations on All the winners! Mr. Lobo’s best pals Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson (Host), Daniel Griffith( DVD Extra), Terror From Beyond The Daves(Blog), August Ragone(Interview), Midnight Syndicate(CD) took top honors and went home with the coveted CREEPER statuette!
