This year, we honored many Sleepless Knights and CInsomniacs for their love of CINEMA INSOMNIA and MR. LOBO as well as their hard work. It’s not always easy being a misunderstood movie fan and we created this award to show our appreciation for our family of Sleepless Knights. CINEMA INSOMNIA is a “fan-powered” endeavor and you are the reason that an independently produced show like this is possible. CINSOMNIACS are a rare breed and superior to other fandoms in many ways. Today, we honor one of them who many felt stood out above the rest this year. Ladies and Gentlemen, your CINEMA INSOMNIA FAN OF THE YEAR is…….
Our fan from the great state of Texas, SIR GARRETT MEHAFFEY was first honored as the FAN OF THE WEEK on the week of May 4th-May 11th, 2014. His lovely, patient, and saintly wife may not be as into “misunderstood movies” as Garrett, he nevertheless has found the time to show us throughout this year that he was worthy of Sleepless Knight of the Year. He created countless humorous and creative pictures to match the various themes of the week. He’s also spread the news far and wide about CINEMA INSOMNIA and our beloved host MR. LOBO. Here are some of his creations over the past year:
It has been reported that he is also working on a “Secret Mr. Lobo Project.” For eight months, SIR GARRETT and another former SLEEPLESS KNIGHT OF THE WEEK SIR LUKE HARRIS, have been working on this secret project. It remains in the “Research and Development” vault and discussions between the two. We were given a rare sneak peak, however, of this piece. Upon hearing the good news on X-Mas morning, SIR GARRETT beamed,
“My WOOP of joy echoed down the empty street. I just can’t say how much this means to me. Well, yes I can. This means A-LOT to me…..This is a great honor and a wonderful Christmas gift.”
Mr. Lobo had this to say:
“Sir Garrett is a tireless moral booster, go getter, and a talented artist. A leader in our fandom. He understands the importance of silliness on a Saturday night, the sanctity of the cheap thrill, the holy trinity of Sci-Fi, Horror, and Cult, and knows to never take yourself too seriously. MR. LOBO commands ALL CInsomniacs–do not be jealous! Congratulate your worthy sibling because HE IS ONE OF YOU. “They’re Not Bad Movies–Just Misunderstood” is more than a motto–it’s a lifestyle. Garrett “gets it” and he spreads this wonderful wisdom of cheese wherever he goes. Thank You, Garrett for making CINEMA INSOMNIA possible. As we go forward with our new venture OUTER SPACE INTL–we are looking at Garrett as as vital resource…”
