What a freak show. This is my first event like this so I’m pretty amazed by all the sights and sounds. I sat by Nasser El Sonbaty on the plane and we talked for close to four hours. Interesting guy, very honest, intelligent and genuinely friendly- a true standout. I gave him a couple of T-mag shirts in exchange for his video. Nice guy. Chyna, the wrestling “chick”, was on my plane too, so I guess she’s doing something here this weekend.
Our booth looks great. The three biggest are probably Biotest, EAS, and Weider. We’re giving away magazines (issue #4), shirts, and Grow! samples and selling some products as well, including the new Advanced Protein. John and Steve Berardi, Cy Willson, John Koenig, TC, and several Biotest guys are here so far. Met a lot of readers (special thanks for the Grow! pie two of them brought; it was about the only lunch we had we were so busy), took a lot of pics with them, and stared at a lot of bodacious hoochies. The women here are unbelievable, pure comic book sexuality, so perfect and petite you could eat them with a spoon (whatever that means.) I haven’t seen a real pair of boobs in 48 hours.
Seeing all the “stars” is interesting. You see these people in magazines and it’s odd to see them in person. I waited for an elevator with Monica Brant, bumped into Amy Fadhli (literally) and got within three feet of Arnold himself. (He walked through briefly flanked by about a dozen armed guards.)
I’ll post more tomorrow. Tonight I think I’ll actually sleep. Saturday is supposed to be busier than today. If you’re in town, be sure and stop by. - Chris
