The bad news: my local comic book store actually had the nerve to try to charge me $25 for it because it is a limited edition. Outrageous!
We now return to my regularly scheduled bitching about my iPod. Currently, I have deleted album art and reinstalled all songs beginning with letters A through C (565 songs, primarily Alice Donut, The Cramps, Beastie Boys and Cypress Hill.) So far, everything is working just fine, which means whatever is corrupt, is between letters D through Z. Will update, as I am sure is as earth-shattering important to you as it is to me.
