In 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 founding 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.
