    Hey guys,

    I used to be a fairly regular poster here, but I've been out of the loop for a while. I'm a military journalist stationed in Kosovo for the next six months. Anyway, Mariah Carrey came here yesterday, and I got to follow her around to the base camps and take photos and interview her. She seemed pretty nice. Well she had a bunch of people with her, a hairdresser, make up guy, publicist, manager, plus crews from MTV, Entertainment Tonight, Reuters, I think she had almost thirty people in her entourage. Well I got to talking to this guy who did her lighting. He said he was from L.A. I was shooting the bull with him, and in true Linkster fashion I tried to get the scoop on Van Halen. He said that he worked on the "Runaround" video and that the guys were cool. I hate to say, however, that he had no idea what was going on with the mighty VH. I just wanted to let you guys know that I tried to get the scoop for ya. Oh well. I haven't been on the Links for a while, and I have to say that I've missed you guys. Anyway, I'll have a post after this one with a pic of Mariah that I took yesterday. I hope you guys like it.

    Thanks for the info, Bo! Welcome back and we hope to see you back in the ol' US of A real soon!

    So how did Mariah look? Has she trimmed down any or cleaned herself up? I saw her on the Tribute to America TV special and I think I saw a clip of her performing live at the NY concert. She didn't look too good.

    Hopefully she did a good job of performing and helped the soldiers forget about things for just a few moments.

    Keep us posted Bo! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Oh yeah...good job on asking "the question" too!

    Cabo Kid,

    Thanks for the kind words. She did a pretty good job, signed tons of autographs, and was very friendly with the troops. She did a short concert, some of which I suspect was lip-synched. But there was a lot of interaction with the audience. She looked very good physically. When she got off the plane, she wore a camo-outfit with the front zipped way down low. I really couldn't tell you how she was mentally, she seemed okay. And even though I know she's going to get good P.R. mileage out of this, I refuse to criticize anyone who takes the time and trouble to come be with the troops. So my hat is off to her for that. I've tried to post one of my pictures, but I'm having trouble doing it. If anyone could share some knowledge on how to do that, or I could e-mail it to someone else to post I'd appreciate it.

    Bo,

    Contact Goo. I know he and some others have hosted pics before. He could probably help you with this one. Who knows? If it's a REALLY good pic (wink wink), you may want to contact Rod Dangle or Dan Halen, authors of the most sacred "Beautiful Girls" thread. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    (Props to Rod D and Dan Halen for their brilliance and wisdom and their gifts of "sharing"!)

    Keep us posted Bo!

    Bo,

    Good post! I've been out of the loop off and on myself. I've done a good bit of active duty, off and on, since 9/11. I'm on active duty right now, but I'll be home on December 14th.

    P.S. I want to tell all my fellow linkers, "Hello", too. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Good to see some of you that have been MIA for a while. Not exactly much to talk about unfortunately.

    Jeez i hope you are reporting fairly on both sides...seems like most of the news reports we get out of there are pretty one sided
    and with Behind Enemy Lines out there the Serbs are getting a really bad name

    too bad you didn't get any info on VH...that would be a strange place to get info on them thats for sure
