Scott Pyburn: From comic art to making action figures - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 201004

Scott Pyburn is a person I actually met before on a previous season of the podcast. He was traveling with the Mighty-Con comic-book circuit.

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.
