Getting excited

I’ve been “helping” Kevin in one way or another with his new book for a while now and I must tell you it’s going to be pretty epic. I just got thru reading a portion of it that anyone that really loves this hobby will be excited to read. I felt like I was just a new youngin starting out again while reading it, brought back so much excitement.

Started editing NERD 2012 video part 4….. Man that’s a lot of hot ball pythons for just one video. This one is super simple, just a bunch of footage of hot looking morphs (most of which only exist at NERD) and no yapping. This is 100% eye candy. Should be up soon… ish

Google+ and YouTube just activated “Hangouts On Air” for my account. That means that I can now broadcast a live stream (most likely from NERD) and embed it directly on my website and NERD’s website for everyone to watch Live.
So when Kevin is cutting those super exciting clutches I can now share that with everyone Live as it happens.
Deff game changer !!!
Stay tuned for more updates on a possible schedule for live broadcasts.

Just finished editing the Retic egg pulling video. Why do I put myself in these situations? :)
Andy was standing there most of the time but refused to help me because his goal in life is basically to get me bit by something other than a ball python.
In the process I’ve been able to man up and grab a gator, a puff adder, some beaded lizards and now the retic.
Gotta admit, I’m having a good time!

Kevin McCurley- Tinley Summit idea

"I just got from the NARBC Chicago where we talked about the future of Keeping Reptiles here in the states with pending legislation and laws. To make a long story short we voiced "our"(Yeah, more like MINE) opinions and what we are thinking. I suppose I may have been the grumpiest unsatisfied person in the room…… I bitched about this and that. I did get lots of positive feedback for what I said and my outspokenness…. At the end of the day none of this is worth much of anything but more friends that like me. So, the next day I conjured an idea……. Once I got it worked out a bit in my mind I presented it to Brian @ BHB….. He “got it” real quick and wanted in…. then it was off to Brian @ Chicago Reptile/NARBC & Bob - Eco /NARBC & Jon Mack - Reptile by Mack……they heard the words and we went into a meeting….from there is showed it had legs and we had at least a 2 hour meeting on it…. we brought in Mike Wilbanks and a few others and cinched the idea. We have a big plan on how to fight this and change things…. I am not going to shed the idea yet since there is much work to do and organize. Hopefully in the next month or so I will let the “cat out of the bag.”……more shortly..”
