"BIG lines and jaw-dropping terrain like nowhere else on the planet. Crazy!
The Real Deal - if most ski flicks feel like a dream, this feels like the real deal for sure. You can feel the tension when they get into the gnar, you can feel the hardpack and corn under your feet, and you might even get some stomach dropping action when then top out on the 'Buttress'."

Aperture Training Now Available

Just finished my Aperture Training DVD for the AUPN. Here is the description from

"This AUPN-created training DVD from our instructor and Apple Certified Master Trainer Jeffery Morse walks Aperture users through all the major features and functions of Aperture 2.

An extension of the AUPN Promo Training DVD sent to members, this DVD covers the whole application.

The DVD is nearly three-hours long, and covers everything from interface to export.
It's a fantastic companion DVD to either the Aperture Road Tour or Aperture Intensives, and it's a great training piece of students who can't get to our classes.

Web browser based, you can follow along at your own pace, go over materials and revisit topics at your leisure."

Following up on my previous post.
Loving the EXO 2.1!

Now I'm no audiophile, but these speakers take me right where I want to go. They are crisp, loud and very well designed. A great complement to my existing, fairly flat, monitoring system.

I'm recommending these to my clients from here on out.
Fortunately, they have a line that will satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.

I personally enjoyed his slightly dry sense of humor, adding a certain touch to the presentation and I found his communications skills on presenting the information very clear and understandable."
