Your Cinema Insomnia Intern,



Loyal and Royal! Knurl Chubb from the Bay Area is our Fan of The Week!

Lobo_BorloffWe 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.

KTEH, KCTH, AMGTV, DVD, LIVESTREAM, ROKU, She’s followed CI from outlet to outlet and looking forward to watching new CI episodes, live hosted on Ustream. She thinks it’s really fun to chat with the other fans while she watches. She convinced her boss at TRILLIAM GRAPHICS to sponsor CI on KTEH and she made a blow-up banner and stickers of CI artwork!
“We used to watch the L.A. horror host Seymour on Saturday nights when I was a teen, and later in college, we watched Bob Wilkins’ Creature Features show in the dorm TV room. I often lamented that there were no horror hosts on TV any more, and always wished they would revive Creature Features.

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!


lecture2Lobo I want you! fixedI 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.

I like to try and collect all the shows so I can have a nice archive. I have a lot of them on DVD and even VHS, and now that they are on the internet, I’ll probably have digital files as well. I also love going to the live shows, they are the best!”

Knurl also sent us a selfie in her CI Santa eyeball hat from that first fundraiser at KTEH, waaaay back when.
