Thought this would go for more? - Tom Ray's Day 2100602

I auction this vintage Care Bears alarm clock on eBay and thought it would start a bidding war

I look at some of the vintage and retro items I sold online in this video from my YouTube Channel.

The last time I had a rare pop-culture item I auctioned it on eBay and it was way more valuable than I thought. I tried it again with this Care Bears alarm clock and did not have the same outcome. Oh well. I also sold a dancing Frankenstein monster, a Hanna-Barbera Valley of the dinosaurs comic, toy soldiers, and some sculptured candles.

Plus, at the end of the video, I draw my daily autobiographical webcomic.

This is a video of my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work.

Was sad that I had to ship out this dancing Frankenstein's monster!

You can see it do its thing at the beginning of the video.

Also sold this vintage Hanna-Barbera comic for the short-lived cartoon series Valley of the Dinosaurs.

Also in the comic book, there was an advertisement for enrolling in a truck driving school which seems weird for a children's comic.

This is the Care Bears alarm clock I mentioned.

I put it up for auction on eBay and thought it would go for more because it got a bid right away! But that turned out to be the only bidder. Oh well.

Then I show two more random but unique items.

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
