We are thankful for this week for one of our very best CInsomniacs a Sleepless Knight who goes by the codename KNURL CHUBB. She wrote a nice, self-described “long winded dissertation” about CINEMA INSOMNIA and how she came to watch it, and live the life. She sent us some of her favorite pictures taken with her camera. She especially likes the one of Mr. Lobo at the first Lobotronic in Sacramento at the Studio Theater. Also the SECRETS OF HORROR HOSTING panel at Wondercon 2006, with Bob and John, and the historic meeting of Mr. Lobo and Karlos Borloff at Comic-Con in San Diego, 2009.
Then, one Saturday night, second week of October 2005, I turned on the TV to watch the un-hosted monster movies, on KTEH out of San Jose, and it was Cinema Insomnia with Mr. Lobo. In the Halloween show, he played his new music video “Watching TV”. It was fantastic! I was completely and irrevocably hooked. Mr Lobo had totally captured the feeling of watching monster movies with my friends as a teen!
I love the show because it is a perfect blend of current and retro, really well written, creative, and hilarious. It has always made me forget my troubles for a couple of hours and have a good laugh. My favorite Saturday night is to watch monster movies in PJs with some snacks and the cats snuggled up.
Knurl also sent us a selfie in her CI Santa eyeball hat from that first fundraiser at KTEH, waaaay back when.Thank you, KNURL CHUBB, valued Sleepless Knight, for ALL of your support, for MR. LOBO and CINEMA INSOMNIA, and for watching all those Misunderstood Movies! Here is your FAN OF THE WEEK certificate that you can download and print. Congratulations, KNURL CHUBB –THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK–for November 28th through the December 4th!
