This may go somewhere, this may go nowhere, however we are going to give it a try. Within this thread Inforoosters will be posting hand crafted and possibly other items to be exchanged for donations to the 'Whoring for Whoreshack' fund. No doubt this OP will be edited many times as we work out the bumps.
How we think it will work - Shall use Quacker and Scrog for the example:
- Quacker has an item to donate. He takes a picture of the item - Quacker then posts the picture(s) within this thread, and suggests a minimum donation to be exchanged for said item - Scrog decides he wants the item and will donate the minimum requested - Quacker can accept that donation or hold out for a larger donation - Quacker decides to accept the donation, replies to Scrog that his donation is accepted, then edits his post to mark the item as 'donation pending'
- Scrog will paypal, mail, hand deliver the agreed upon donation to QSAROO in a timely manner - QSAROO will notify Quacker as soon as the donation is in-hand be it via paypal, mail, finding one of us in person etc - QSAROO will update the running total of donations in this OP - Quacker will then make arrangements with Scrog to deliver or mail the donated item and edit his OP to indicate the item had been exchanged

Important guidelines: - The person donating the item to exchange for the cash donation is responsible for delivering the item - The person donating the item has the right to remove an item, not accept a donation offer, etc etc UNTIL they have accepted a donation - Qsaroo has the right to haunt a donater in their dreams until the end of time should it be discovered an item was removed and then exchanged for personal gain as a direct result of this thread - It is fair game to propose a larger donation then what has been proposed by another for an item - It is okay to propose a lesser donation than the minimum suggested, donater has the right to accept or not - Once a donation is accepted a gentleman's agreement is in place, make the exchange! - Both the sending of the cash donation and the crafted item are expected to occur within 5 days of the exchange agreement - We are not selling. This is the one time in this thread this word will be used. We are 'exchanging crafted and other items for donations' to the Whoring for Whoreshack fund. - IF an item is not received timely after making a donation, please notify QSAROO right away and we will take steps to make it right - There will be bumps in the road, we will work these out together best we can in this thread - Despite the gravity of the reason for this thread, let's try to have some fun and raise some funds for Whoreshack!!
If you have items to donate for the exchange, please PM Qsaroo prior to posting. We've alread heard from several roosters!! We'd like to keep it 'clean'. No used sex-toys, half eaten sandwiches, or Brooklyn Bridges please.
Totals for THIS thread: Donated: 3655.20 .......... Pending Receipt: 140.00 ............ In Negotiation: 200.00

I have a messenger style bag. Outside is brown corduroy. Inside is olive green. The bag is lined with fleece. It has four outer pockets (front, back, and each side) and one divided inner pocket (one big part and two small parts). Strap is adjustable.
Suggested donation $35 This one's gone
I also have a simple, bucket-style bag. Outside is a Japanese print. Inside is a neutral beige with one largish pocket.
Suggested donation $20
And I can do bandanas to order. I generally make them about 22" x 22", which makes the diagonal about 31". I can make them larger or smaller to fit specific needs. The day after any donation is received, I will send the bandana by priority mail, which usually gets where it's going in about 2 business days. Suggested donation $10
If you give me an idea of colors/patterns that you like, I can find something to suit most any taste.
I also have a bunch of this fabric:
I think have enough of this to make about 8 bandanas. 4 are gone 4 are available

I'm willing to donate my Glitch n' Groove. This is a circuit bent toy I "built" a year or so ago and it is the only one of it's kind in existence. I can safely say there is nothing else quite like it on earth!
The deets: The Glitch n' Groove is a circuit bent toy drum machine. Minus my modifications (which I'll get to in a minute) the toy features: 6 drum pads - 2 snare drum pads, Ride cymbal pad, Crash cymbal pad, High tom and floor tom pads. 8 Different pre-programmed drum beats Demo Mode Adjustable tempo* 2 volume settings (high & low) A Record/Play button** Built in 9 ohm Speaker
Fun stuff I added: 4 long stem Pots or potentiometers (or "nobs you can twiddle" in layman's terms) which do all manner of crazy shiz to the sounds coming out of it. 6 brass body contacts which also do all manner of crazy shiz to the sounds coming out of it depending on how hard you touch them and what combination of contacts you're touching. This includes slowing the sound down to the point that you get this crazy squiggly electronic static that will be music to your ears. And probably to your ears only! 1/4" mono output jack (hook it up to your effects pedals and an amp and watch you're audience run out the door!) A reset button***
The ***'s or full disclosure 6 drum pads - The crash cymbal pad on the bottom left corner and the small snare pad just above it are not functional. Due to the location of where some of the components are soldered to the circuit board they had to be disconnected otherwise when you played a pre-programmed beat all you would hear was CRASH, CRASH, CRASH, CRASH. The crash cymbal sounded like shiz on its own anyway, trust me its not a loss. The right hand snare pad still works just fine and is sensitive enough that you can do presses and orchestral or buzz rolls on it with sticks. Adjustable tempo* - You can't set an exact tempo like 120bpm (it started as a toy after all and not a serious drum machine) you just speed it up or slow it down using the green tempo buttons. The tempo is steady but not precise. In other words it doesn't speed up or slow down but the tempo is not an exact BPM, so instead of say 120bpm it's more like 120.735bpm. That being the case it's more suited to improvised live performances vs. trying to get it synced up with a MIDI composition. Of course you can always sample it and stretch the sample blah blah blah blah. A Record/Play button** - The record/play feature is functional but super wonky due to the various modifications I made to the circuit. It spits out very interesting results but nothing close to anything you recorded. At all! A reset button*** - Because the electrical current's flow across the circuit has been drastically manipulated it's inevitable that on occasion you'll do something that causes the circuit to "freeze" and it won't do anything even if you turn it off then on. The reset button disrupts the current and places the circuit into the state it was in just before it froze up. This is the most stable circuit I've ever bent so this doesn't happen very often.
This thing screeches, growls and groans like nothing else! You don't even have to make it play one of the pre-programmed beats to to get it to start making unearthly sounds, just turn it on and twiddle the nobs. The Glitch 'n Groove does not come with any instructions or explanation. It's up to your own sense of experimental creativity to figure it out. The instrument runs on 6 'C' batteries which are not included.
Considering it's uniqueness and the cause for which it is being donated I think $350 is a reasonable suggested donation price.

Of course I'll clean it up a little before sending it! Kinda dusty.
EDIT: The photos are pretty unflattering. When I posted this I figured the Glitch 'n Groove would be something of interest to musicians and dabblers in experimental sounds. However in addition to being a one-of-a-kind functional avant-garde musical instrument it's also a piece of art and could make a neat conversation piece; though I do think it would be sad if it just sat on a shelf never getting to sing the screeching growling song of its mutant people. So here are a couple of less utilitarian Objet d'art shots of it. Resting on the mantle with care:

I also am offering (well, Josh is, actually) a cd of original OatmealSchnapps music. It is about an hour long. He's still working on the cover, so I don't have a picture yet. Suggested donation is $5 to $10.
