>>The really cool thing about this show was getting to meet Philippe De Vosjoli and Robert Mailoux!!! I loved the Vivarium magazine when I was growing up, and read most of Philippe's books as a teenager. Robert Mailoux was somebody I looked up to as a kid with his Sandfire Dragons (also he co-authored the bearded dragon book with philippe). Without their book, I probably wouldn't have had the success with breeding Bearded Dragons I did in 1997 as a punk-kid. So there I am at this show just walking around, and it is packed. I spotted Philippe, and Robert with him. I did a double take. I have never met these gentlemen, only seen pictures of them, so it took me a couple of minutes to make sure it was really them. Once I was sure it was them, I walked up to them and thanked them for all they had done for the hobby, and how their writing had such an impact on me as a child. It was totally awesome. The funny thing is nobody seemed to know who they were. I mentioned to the guys at freedom breeder that they had just walked by their booth and they had no idea. Sad. Is there any respect for the Pioneers?
>>

People dont read books anymore really. They are all hooked on teh interwebs. There is a whole new guard/old guard thing.

>>*On a side note: Kerry King from Slayer was also at the show. He had quite the following. I could care less.

I am a total kerry groupie, but not only do I listen to his music, I am a morelia FREAK. He has some kick arse stuff at his booth always and I drool over it all the time. INLANDS!!!! mmmmmmm
