For the next couple weeks, we will be re-honoring some of the FAN’S OF THE WEEK! All of you and any of you may be picked for future FAN’S OF THE WEEK! If you have a story and would like to share it; you can send your pictures and story about how you found out about Cinema Insomnia, favorite episode, favorite misunderstood movie, etc to [email protected]!
This we are re-honoring SIR LAWRENCE LANEY LOFTIN, the very first SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK who paved the way for this to continue:
Sir Lawrence Laney Loftin is a MR. LOBO fan from way back and is in fact the poster child in our Fan of the Week graphic above. Ever since he discovered CINEMA INSOMNIA on KEJB UPN 43 in Monroe, Louisiana, back in 2003-2004, our staff has been getting weird things in the mail from Laney–Christmas cards, postcards, magnets, books, kitsch, pulp-fiction, VHS tapes, and scandalous photos of himself with uninitiated pizza delivery girls.
We dropped in on Laney during a cross country tour and witnessed his mind boggling collection of Fantasy, Horror, Sci-fi, and Comic Book memorabilia.
It was then, in person, when Laney gave MR. LOBO the strangest gift of them all–a taxidermy piece of Cryptozoic-crypto-zoology–called a Hootenanny! This kin of the Jack-a-lope and the Swamp Booger was stuffed by his father after a close encounter.
The Hootenany briefly appeared in our 2013 Haunted House Special and resembles a deer’s behind with bobcat teeth. Semi-retired, Laney works at the Society for the Prevention of Meanness to Laney, when he is not lobbying for his local tavern or Pizza place to show Cinema Insomnia episodes on the big screen instead of Svengoolie.
He spends countless hours making crude memes of MR. LOBO for the internet and has crashed MST3k screenings while wearing his CINEMA INSOMNIA T-shirt. Each month, he sends us different pictures that complement our THEME OF THE MONTH! Whether it’s a hilarious meme, film poster, or picture edit-SIR LAWRENCE never stops showing his support for CINEMA INSOMNIA and his other CInsomniac and Sleepless Knight Family.
Today, we re-honor you and open the doors for the future FAN’S OF THE WEEK! Send in your stories TODAY!
