I found an awesome source for cheap Arduino-compatible shields if anyone's interested.

They're a Chinese outfit.  I bought their LCD touchscreen module for just $18 compared to roughly $50 for the same type of thing from Radio Shack, Make, or other companies.  They offered free shipping to the US, and it arrived in about a week.  

I haven't had much of a chance to play with it yet, but I'll report back once I've gotten it working.  I plan to experiment with some touchscreen-based MIDI controllers using it.

Wow, they've got an ARM Cortex M3 mini development board for $15!

Their FPGA programmers are super inexpensive as well.  Thanks Jason!
