  65. jock Goodman says:

    Pete, maybe now you will mount a GoProcam to your handlebars. If you gotta pay some pain dues, you should at least have video of your wreck.
    I never win so why try? thanks for the show.

  66. Greta Show Guys! For the record if i was drinking when I heard “just a wee bit of blur” I would have damaged my monitor with a spit take, lol that was hilarious!

  67. ian harber says:

    Corey, the movie poster tutorial was awsome, you make it look so easy, and the way you show us makes it easy for us to do as well.

    ps. hope Pete is feeling better

  68. William Chinn says:

    FYI: The webcast hit KelbyTV on 8/21. The Epson printer contest ended on 8/17

  69. William Chinn says:

    OK, Matt is printing B&W. You have mentioned the Epson printer contest. As a DIY how about telling us how to frame our prints, using some new products. I’ve never seen this mentioned on any Kelby media. No, it won’t impact Mpix sales, and we will probably appreciate them more.

  70. Anthony Corona says:

    very helpful tips!!!

  71. John Havord says:

    Happy days, putting the note under the pillow worked :)

  72. Dave Croft says:

    Who needs RC or Kelby. Well done guys, great show.

  73. Anthony Corona says:
