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.
Thank You, Lawrence Laney Loftin, valued Sleepless Knight, for all your support over the years and for watching all those misunderstood movies. Mr. Lobo will be sending you our very first “fan of the week” award–THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK–for April 20th-26th 2014, along with some copies of CINEMA INSOMNIA to run in any public place near you that will allow it!
