Hyah! Mr. Lobo gets a kick out of Martial Artist and Sleepless Knight of the Week–Mike Quebec

Number One Super guy, MICHAEL QUEBEC, is our fan of the week. Usually Mr. Lobo’s fans have a less active lifestyle. This Knight ran ads in some of our old shows as a call to arms to make low budget Martial Arts movies in the San Francisco Bay Area. The picture above is from a trailer for the series DISAVOWED.
Mike even allowed Mr. Lobo to record a segment at his school and showed our honorable host a few self-defense moves for the unfinished WENG WENG: THE IMPOSSIBLE KID(1982) episode. He also taught many CInsomniacs in the San Francisco Bay Area how to Swing Dance. Here, he tells his story…but first Let’s Rock!

http://www.themonsterclub.com/mn1.gif“I first encountered MR. LOBO in an issue of The MONSTER NEWS–issue number 10. It was sometime around the early 2000s when I got that free magazine while attending a film festival in Alameda. I later met him in person at the Castro Theater in San Francisco either during a GODZILLA, a DARK SHADOWS, or a JAMES BOND film festival (it was more than 10 years ago so I forget! I said, “You’re him!” to which he replied, “Who me, who hah?!”)

A few weeks later, after getting home late one night after hosting a swing dance party (one of my many jobs for which our friend and Sleepless Knight Bob Ekman refers to me as “Dancer Guy”), I flipped through the channels on my TV while trying to get sleepy and I saw that Mr. Lobo was on KTEH Channel 54 and I was hooked! I later met him again at a mutual friend’s party (actually a friend of mine who is also involved in swing dancing who emailed me asking, “Hey are you an Insomniac too?” after she saw my name on the Cinema Insomnia website as a visitor to the site leaving a comment.)

http://www.bmovienation.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/lobo_mr.jpgIt was easy talking to Mr Lobo and we found we had a mutual love not just of horror and sci-fi films, but basically all genres of cult cinema, including teen exploitation films from the 1950’s and ’60’s and martial arts films.

Later, he asked me to shoot a skit with him at the martial arts school I was teaching at at the time. (Another job of mine and that skit is up on You Tube!)

I was sad to hear that he was no longer on KTEH, but I always will have fun memories of his shows and I will always be a huge admirer of his comedic talent.

Thank you Mr. Lobo for bringing us such joy.”

The movie party doesn’t have to end, Mike. Here is a classic KTEH episode on our ustream channel! Remember when MR. LOBO hosted this film starring your martial arts Street Fighter hero SONNY CHIBA as SPACE CHIEF? The CINEMA INSOMNIA presentation of INVASION OF THE NEPTUNE MEN(1961)!

They also won a spooky chair made by another big Bay Area CI fan Paul Benton that Mr. Lobo sat in during the the lobo collection-2making of Paul’s unfinished film DOGTOWN ZOMBIES(2009). CINSOMNIACS are family and they look out for each other as well as look out for their favorite show and their favorite host. We appreciate our unnatural siblings and that’s what SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS OF THE WEEK is all about. Showing appreciation for those who appreciate what we do and who really “get it”!

riv and Tom have also purchased much of Dixie Dellamorto Lobo’s art and signed prints as pictures from inside their secret CInsomniac base will show you.

These card carrying Sleepless Knights of Insomnia, were also at THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS(1966) LIVE CINEMA INSOMNIA show and a tearful hug-ful going away show with the JOHN PAIZS film CRIME WAVE(1985)–Both shows presented by MOVIES ON A BIG SCREEN in Sacramento.mudroom-7 “Once (our neighbor) told us of CINEMA INSOMNIA, we were hooked.  Sadly, we were late bloomers, and found out just a few weeks before KTEH cancelled the show(along with all their other over-night programing after getting aquired by a larger PBS station).  However going to the live events and meeting MR LOBO and Dixie was so awesome.  We even met MR. LOBO’s kids!  We are still big fans and, through the DVDs, have been able to enjoy all the great funny moments of the show.  We sincerely wish MR. LOBO and Dixie would return to california soon and host a live movie or maybe a pancake breakfast at Pancake Circus!!!  We’re due next year to get our CI tattoos updated to 35 years of wedded bliss.  As for pics, I think our ankles say it all.  (:”image-23390-full
