    The MR. SKETCHY: Everything in the PEACOCK package, plus a DIY CD-R, with inexpertly rendered cover "art" by me, of sketch demos of the songs on the Thugs and China Dolls. "Sketch demo" is my term for recordings I do of new songs to make sure I don't forget them. They're bad. I sing off pitch and flub the notes. Which might make them interesting from an ethnographic standpoint.

    The RICH and CREAMY. A delicious, extraordinarily limited edition (100 were printed) screen-printed poster (see a link to an image of the poster to the left) for my show at the inaugural (2011) Savannah Stopover Festival. The design, by the amazing and talented Ben Gephardt, won top honors in the Stopover Festival poster design contest. I'd be happy to sign it, if that twists your nut. Note: this gets you the poster and the poster alone! Also note: these posters are truly one-of-a kind limited editions. All are lovingly made with care and skill by Savannah's own Dilated Spectrum press. As these things go, there are little smudges and anomalies that make each poster truly unique. $100 is a steal!

    The MR. WHITE. Jim White's loafers. What color? White, of course. This is an honest-to-goodness pair of white moccasin-style soft loafers, worn by Jim White when he played a house concert in my living room in 2010. He;d bought them at a flea market a few days before for, I think, $1. Mens size 11. But who cares about size, since you're not going wear these--you're going to frame these and hang them on the wall. See an image of the loafers by following the link in the ABOUT THIS PROJECT section, above and to the left. They're also featured in the video. (This is for the loafers and the loafers only.)

    The SHOO BE DOO. Be my backup singer on the record! One of the tracks, "Crooked Mouth," has a crowd of people singing "ya ya ya ya ya." at the end of the song. Join the crowd! You'll get full credit as a singer on the record. And, if you're not in Savannah, you'll have to figure out a way to record your vocals and email me the track (easier than you might think).

    The BET YOU THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT YOU. The PLAIN JANE package, plus I will compose a song about a topic of your choice. Nothing x-rated or hateful, thank you very much. And, no matter the topic, I can't promise a happy ending or a bright outlook. If you want happy endings and bright outlooks, I suggest Disney World (actually, come to think of it, that place seriously creeps me out).
