>>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
