“I Have Been, and Always Shall Be, Your Friend.”

Bob and NimoyWe are already missing you here on earth, Leonard Nimoy. Thank you for making us think and making us wonder. Thanks to Mars Homeworld and Timothy Brisson for sharing this photo from Creature Features with Bob Wilkins.

“We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.”

–Admiral Kirk

He Searched For Horror Hosts and Found MR. LOBO–NOW, WE FOUND HIM! OUR FAN OF THE WEEK!

40497_1507782728136_2310573_nIn 2009. SIR BENJAMIN WILSON went searching for different horror hosts through Wikepedia. He saw OFF BEAT CINEMA then continued down the list and found CINEMA INSOMIA including the Livestream. He became an CINSOMNIAC while tuning into the various episodes. Back in 2009/2010, SIR BEN and his brother drove 10 hours up from the Indio/Cochella area to Sacramento, California to attend the “CINEMA INSOMNIA: UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS LIVE SHOW!”

When asked about when his love of misunderstood films began, SIR BEN answered enthusiastically, “My love of B-movies began in high school when I began after diffing through the dollar DVD bins and stumbling across a copy of THE LAST MAN ON EARTH….I still talk about misunderstood movies in one of the groups I moderate on Facebook (Cool Freaks’ Bad Movie Night) besides host live shows like FOODFIGHT! or RABBITS occassionally on COOL FREAKS’ DOT TV.”

When he attended Arkansas State University, he would sit on the outside chairs while the campus was closed to use the wi-fi to tune into the show when he used to attend the old chats when the show streamed live on an AMGTV affiliate in Witchita, Kansas. He is one of the fultimatelobodvdlrgounding members of the earliy CINEMA INSOMNIA Facebook groups on Facebook. He even created his own Facebook Events for the different episodes for the Livestream before MR. LOBO was even on Facebook!

MR. LOBO did a voice over for SIR BEN’s college radio play entitled “Otter Limits: Solar Quicksand.” He took part in purchasing our past $200 MR. LOBO CINEMA INSOMNIA 24 DVD SET which at the time came inside an orange and black CINEMA INSOMNIA backpack. He has also commissioned pieces of art from MRS. LOBO including wonderfully recognizable nerdy icons like Clocky from PEE-WEE’S PLAYHOUSE, Ro-Man from ROBOT MONSTER, H.P. Lovecraft, and Jon “I’m a PC” Hodgeman. He has also contributed much to Cinema Insomnia’s presence on Wikipedia and continues to share the love.

THIS SLEEPLESS KNIGHT IS A COMIC SUPERHERO, DISGUISED AS MILD MANNERED FAN OF THE WEEK!

He first found CINEMA INSOMNIA back when it used to air in the San Francisco bay area on KTEH Ch. 54 and transformed into the loyal viewer and Sleepless Knight he is today.

SIR ROB has shown his support by purchasing autographed CINEMA INSOMNIA DVDs from MR. LOBO each year he was at Wondercon in San Francisco. He currently writesand edits his long running semi-autobiographical internet comic strip entitled HELL ON WHEELS. He transported our Host into HELL ON WHEELS in his #144 edtion comic strip. Here is the strip:

Quit witted and naturally funny, SIR ROB has excitedly and expertly written hilarious gags for MR. LOBO for many CINEMA INSOMNIA episodes and for live shows such as Blobfest. Back in 2013, he helped shape the “wheelchair enhanced” character of Professor Ex-Exorcist in our 2013 CINEMA INOSMNIA Haunted House Special.

He continues to be on the mission of converting people into CINSOMNIACS online by sharing links about the show and spreading the word that “They are NOT BAD MOVIES–JUST MISUNDERSTOOD!” MR. LOBO appreciates him for all he has done for the cause and for what he continues to do day after day!   He will be helping the LOBOs develop new shows and projects for their upcoming venture OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL,

Time is Running Out! A Meteor Threatens to Wipe Out THE PARANORMAL IDIOT!


Spread the word! There’s only about 50 hours left. Some cult movie luminaries have started this Kickstarter campaign to raise funding to make THE PARANORMAL IDIOT series pilot.  The characters are voiced by Dean Martin Rossi, Buddy Barnett, Kathe Duba-Barnett, Frank Mengwasser, Mr.Lobo, Brad Linaweaver and Bill Chase.   The makers of this awesome project warn us that there’s an asteroid that will pass by earth on February 19.  Do your part and be a part of this groundbreaking show. If you have deep pockets and a heroic nature–$1000 pledge gets your voice in the pilot…and for $5000 pledge, a character will be created based on your photo.

AND OUR FAN OF THE WEEK CRIED, “CINEMA INSOMNIACS FOREVER!”

1910506_922939637733723_3233770633865166385_n images SIR BUDDHA GONZALEZ is a lover of the original classic horror films including the Universal monsters series. While growing up, he tuned in to the classic horror hosts SVENGOOLIE and SON OF SVENGOOLIE. They sparked his fascination with many different horror hosts including ELVIRA and MT GRAVES as well as JOE BOB BRIGGS and the well known MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER crew.

He came across MR. LOBO through a comment he had posted on SVENGOOLIE’s Facebook page. At first, SIR BUDDHA thought our host was a local gentleman hosting his own version of a horror show. Out of curiosity, he checked out CINEMA INSOMNIA and he caught the CINSOMNIA bug. Today his most favorite Cinema Insomnia episode is the A VERY VHS HALLOWEEN special followed closely by the one that featured the Sci-Fi classic–THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE(1961)! Later on, a friend of his directed him to the documentary AMERICAN SCARY which featured MR. LOBO. BUDDHA commented on the discovery,

“When I heard MR. LOBO speak about the genre and saw his love for horror hosts and for the true art form, I thought he was very intelligent and was spot on with everything he was saying. (I am) very happy to have found MR. LOBO and CINEMA INSOMNIA. I know that one of my favorite art forms and past times will still be around for years to come.”

Buddha is an actor, musician, and entertainer in his own right and is the lead performer in his band BUDDHA GONZALES and the MAGGOT OVERLORDS OF FUNK. He is currently working on an album that will tribute horror hosts and Creature Features including Svengoolie and Mr. Lobo. He has a new song called SLEEPLESS INSOMNIAC that we’re all dying to hear. His band was also tapped by MR. LOBO to do a Funk version of the CINEMA INSOMNIA theme to be used in upcoming retro episodes.

He is an amazingly talented and humble man. He has worked with some of the greats in the recording business and has his own fans for his accomplishments in the Funk genre with members of Parliament Funkadelic, Mutiny, and Maggot Overlords of Funk.

Thank you, SIR BUDDHA GONZALEZ, valued Sleepless Knight, for ALL of your support and for watching all those Misunderstood Movies! Here is your FAN OF THE WEEK certificate that you can download and print. Congratulations, SIR BUDDHA GONZALEZ –THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK–for February 13th through 19th, 2015!
