BETH HOYT: Save the earth, be green, recycle your 3D glasses
after seeing Men in Black 3 tonight, and
recycle your soul.

Hi guys.
Well, here we are.
Here we are.
Here we are.
Here we are.
How are you?
How are you?
How are you?
Now I'm gonna stop.
I'm going to stop for the whole weekend.
I'm going to a wedding this weekend.
I'm going to witness people joining in
love union for eternity.
AKA, I'm going to drink a little of this, a little of
that, some of that, whose half full cup is that?
And a little white girl at a wedding
dancing will take place.
And then they'll ride off in the sunset--
This was a great week though, right?
We had fun with Dave Hill, the one and the only.
And we got to know Wyatt Cenac.
Gilbert Gottfried was here.
Lots of energy, lots of comic energy.
Yeah, but comic.
Did you miss it?
It's no problem, it's no problem.
Here is the Beth of the Week.

DAVE HILL: The sweetest book is probably I, Tina by Tina
Turner, the one that the hit movie What's Love Got To Do
With It? is based on.
BETH HOYT: What about The Notebook, that's pretty sweet.
Like, you know, as far as like sweet.
DAVE HILL: Is Ike Turner in that one?
BETH HOYT: How did the Man in the Moon cut his hair?
He clips it.
GILBERT GOTTFRIED: The ad showed a model with a great
ass and said if you wore the shoes, that that
ass could be yours.
So I wore them for a month, showed up at the model's
house, and asked her if I could have her ass now.
WYATT CENAC: If you don't know even just one little thing,
they automatically then think you're a bimbo.
BETH HOYT: Gosh, you're in a tough spot.
WYATT CENAC: Yeah, so it's like you have to know
If you just miss one thing, if you mispronounce like--
oh, it's Barney Sanders.
And they're like, no, it's Bernie Sanders you idiot.
BETH HOYT: How does the man cut his lawn?
He clips it.
DAVE HILL: And then Ice Loves Coco came along--
BETH HOYT: And made its way into your heart?
DAVE HILL: Yeah, it's like an instructive program.
Here's how you make it work.
Here's how opposites attract and stay attracted.
BETH HOYT: I need to get on that.
That sounds like something I need.
DAVE HILL: It's the best show.
If you like Ice T and Coco, you'll love that show.
BETH HOYT: Are you thinking about Wings--
Wings the show?
Oh but now you're thinking about Buffalo wings.
Oh now you're thinking about BW3 Buffalo Wild Wings.
And now you feel empty and sad inside, right?
What does Apple call the eclipse?
The iClipse.
DAILY GRACE: Ra, ra, ra, ra.
Commentate on comments.
Ra, ra, ra, ra.
MALE SPEAKER: You know, she's kind of pretty for a man.
I like--
I like the way she talks in her mouth parts.
BETH HOYT: Can you tell us a joke?
WYATT CENAC: No, I'm not getting paid for this.

DONNIE: My name is Donnie and you suck at Photoshop.
And so pull your hand out of your pants and give
yourself a low five.
Great job.
Let's say you're on a train rocketing through the
Himalayas on-- you just escaped from a monastery where
you've spent the last few years.
And you're on your way home because you want to exact
revenge on your wife's lover.
And it's really cold.
And you've been in a monastery for the last few years with a
bunch of dudes.
And you just-- you want to warm things up a little bit.
But you-- you went to open up Photoshop to get some of your
warming photos.
And Photoshop had thrown up all over itself because it's a
new version of Photoshop and the people who made Photoshop
thought it would be really cool if they made it look like
an MP3 player from 1996.
I mean, I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking Donnie, Donnie, we can't afford to buy
a new Photoshop every 10 minutes because we spent all
of our money on our girlfriends on Friday night on
fourth meal.
And so--
I actually--
I think I agree with you.
For you to spend money on a new version of Photoshop would
be like buying a large Hadron Collider to do your social
studies homework.
So I'm going to show you a video that proves that you
don't have to have the newest, greatest thing to believe that
you're part of the crowd or that you can do it.
And perhaps along the way, we'll get inspired by the
things of the past.
DONNIE (RECORDED): My name is Donnie, and
you succeed at Photoshop.
You Succeed at Photoshop is brought to you in part by
Sign up a friend and get one free hour.
Byte magazine.
And Sega Dreamcast, the console of the future.
Hi, welcome to another installment of You Succeed at
Photoshop with me, Donnie Hoyle.
I'm so glad to have you back with me again.
You are getting so much better at Photoshop, and I'm very
proud of you.
Well, let's just get right down to it.
Uh, let's go to our good old friend Photoshop.
You know, every time I open the application up, I just
think about all of the great, wonderful ways that we've
expressed ourselves together and--
well, let's open up a photo.
Maybe you recently went on a camping trip with that new
special someone that you've been spending, well,
a lot of time with.
And you and some very good friends from your high school
days threw a bunch of tents and supplies in a-- in a
camper and headed on out to, uh--
to do some camping together.
let's open up a photo and--
I've got this great photo here.
And as you can see, it was a beautiful day.
The colors aren't as rich as they could be.
And in fact they're--
they're not balanced quite right.
What-- what can we do?
I know what you were going to say, let's use the hue and
saturation tool.
good for you.
That-- even though that's not correct, it's great that
you're taking the initiative to try and come up with
different ways that you can do it.
But why don't you let me show you the right way to do it?
Does that sound good?
We're going to actually go to Image, Adjust, Color Balance.
I'm going to balance the color this way.
Now, what this allows us to do is, we actually have a little
bit more precise control over the different types of colors
in the image and it allows us to focus in on certain things.
So I definitely think the sky was a lot bluer
that day, you know?
And so--
I'm down in the basement working on my Photoshop video
series, m'lady.
Love is a many-splendored--
know you--
you have to use the TV--
press the TV/Video button.
And don't--
tape over Quantum Leap, but don't tape over
Touched By An Angel.
Touched By An Angel, Lady Loveberry.
I love you!
I love you!
Well, let's um--
so let's--
let's start by hitting the midtones, we'll select the
midtones here.
And we're going to bring up the blue.
And we'll be very-- oh by the way, we have to click the
Preview icon here so we can see what we're doing.
We want to make sure we don't get too much blue in there.
And OK, that's looking pretty good.
And we haven't done too much here to the-- to the--
to the other colors yet.
Let's go to Highlights because the sky is really a brighter
part up there.
And we can start to see that the sky coming up.
But what's happening?
We're getting too much blue.
So let's--
one of the good things to note about art and life is that you
always want to have your cool and warms, uh, in opposite.
So if your shadows are cool, you want your highlights to be
warm, that's right.
And if you-- if you do it the other way around-- so we've
got some cool highlights with this cool blue.
So let's-- let's go to our shadows and bring up a little
bit of the red in there to pop some contrast.
See how that brought that to life a little bit there?
And ah--
and let me just see- now check this out.
When we flip to Preview, look how dull and dreary that was,
and now we're getting so much brighter and livelier.
Well that's, you know, show me the money.
Um, so--
I'm going to be right up sweetie.
Um, so let's try that with another image that might have
a little bit punchier color, it's going to be a little
stronger, and see if we can do the same thing.
Let's see, I've got a-- oh this is a good one.
I've got this-- heading home.
This was on our way back from the trip.
And-- and look at those oranges there, we really--
DONNIE: Nothing.
Nothing will stop us from painting this picture.
Nothing will keep us from exacting our revenge--
MALE SPEAKER: Where are you, man?
Come on.
Man, where are you?

BETH HOYT: Practice your Photoshop this weekend.
And dig out your white pants.
And just start driving now, there's going to be traffic.
Can't wait to see you next week, every
day at 4:00 PM Eastern.
Thursday, we treat you to Daily Grace.
Don't forget the sunblock on your face.
