What Should I do with the things that I have?

So I was cleaning some stuff out tonight and I found a bunch of stuff I really have no use for I found: - an external CD/DVD dual layer burner - 4 output VGA splitter - firewire PCI card - 56k fax modem card - old keyboard - a distortion pedal (guitar pedal) - 3 various capacity harddrives - knock off ipod nano (broken) - old comp speakers w/oldschool mini - subwoofer - acoustic guitar soundhole pick-up - crappy digital camera with IR filter removed - unused web cam - huge assortment of cords - USB wall charger (small box with outlet prongs and female usb input) can anyone think of any quality usable projects I could make with any or all of this stuff? (I might be willing to part with the more expensive items.....EX. Burner or VGA splitter for shipping and an super extremely discounted purchase price...... I'm to lazy to Ebay any of it)

- unused web cam

Use the cam to video yourself doing an instructable with the other stuff - - maybe using the modem card to create an intranet modem for a distant device like a printer (in the other room or where ever).
With some extra electronics parts, you could connect your old keyboard to your distortion pedal and to your old comp speakers.

If your kb has a PS/2 connector, you could feed it with 10kHz clock (maybe it will work with a lower one), and each time you'll press a key, you'll get various signals from the DATA pin.
If you send these signals to your distortion pedal through a filter of your own, and if you send the signal of your pedal to an amplifier, you'll get a weird instrument of music ...
Wow....you obviously know more 'bout electronics than I do.
