I've been checking out the LENIN IN SPACE blog for several years now...recently, it seems they've re-upped many of their file shares...all kinds of folders packed full of random mp3s!  My favorites, of course, are their collections of rare/obscure instrumentals.  Check 'em out for yourself:

Music To Crawl By

I love finding nutty stuff like this!  Here we have a YouTube video of a 45 single titled "Gila Monster Crawl" by the Sneaky Petes.  A note on the record's label reads, "From the picture 'The Giant Gila Monster.'"  I don't recall hearing the tune in the film...but, lo & behold, there it is, mentioned on the movie poster!  Now I have to watch it again!!  Fortunately, this is a public domain flick, readily available for online viewing.  One more thing...a note accompanying the YouTube video suggests that the song was actually recorded by Eddie Cochran.  Well, it does bear some similarity to instrumentals Cochran recorded around that time (except for the THEREMIN...)

I've blogged about this before...but I still think that COOP's collection of original Ed "Big Daddy" Roth  decals (on Flickr) is one of the coolest things to be found online...hundreds of high-res scans!

A really nice review of WELCOME TO THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, a 3-issue comic book adaptation of the original film, published by Roger Corman's Cosmic Comics.  The series was scripted by yours, truly (an adaptation of the original script by Charles B. Griffith) and illustrated by Gene Fama, Kilian Plunkett, and myself.  The review includes lots of full page reproductions, including the three "gag" pages I wrote and illustrated.

Weird, Wicked & Wonderful Women

All of these original pieces are available, at only $40 each.  From top: Devil In Disguise, Chesty Morgan, Wolf Gal (after Al Capp), Jayne Mansfield, Were-Cat at the Wheel.  Email my gmail for details (
