You are beautiful.

I was out riding my bike the other day. For some reason, I decided to take a different path than I normally do.

On East Washington Avenue I saw three people, one of them was on a ladder. They were just finishing up what looked like a mural that said "You are beautiful" on it.

I stopped and decided to go ask them what it was.

Next month I'm going to be releasing a podcast about things just like this. It's called American Bandito.
The concept was this - I put up an ad on Facebook that said "Are you an artist in Madison? I would like to talk to you." And that was it. There was no pre-screening, people signed up and I scheduled an interview with them.

I wanted to know about people that are making art, people that are just starting out, people that are trying to get back into it.

I know very little about the art community that's happening in my own town and I wanted to change that.

Starting in August I'll be releasing those interviews. If you'd like to be notified when the episodes come out, sign up for the mailing list.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. πŸ‘‡ The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A

My vintage toy collection is getting outta hand

From my vintage vlog: While I look for a tiny little Garfield toy from the 1980s I realize that my bins of loose action figures are getting outta hand. I need to do something about them someday. Check out more vintage things! I have another website called The Pop-Culture Roadshow where I geek out over a lot of the history and artwork of the vintage and pop-culture items I collect.
