Both CDs contain 40-page liner books loaded with tiny-little headache-inducing photos, never-before-released information that only a few thousand sci-fi/film music nerds care about, and extremely silly humor. And even though each book contains approximately 20,000 words of text (about 129,000 characters, including spaces), we even found enough room to number the pages!
