Meet Mariah Carey

S_14

Being a joehead means you get all sorts of perks denied the average Joe.

For example, this heads-up from this morning's New York Times on Tuesday's upcoming [latest] unveiling of the "new" Mariah Carey.

"Be one of the first to purchase Mariah Carey's latest CD, 'The Emancipation of Mimi,' at our new store in NoHo Manhattan."

No, that's not where and when you meet her, booboo: when you purchase her CD you "receive a wristband that could put you toward the front of the line to meet her at 7 p.m."

"Could"?

"Toward?"

Mariah's handlers must have drunk some particularly potent Kool-Aid 'cause last I looked, when Paris Hilton unveiled her new perfume a few months ago there was no "could" nor was there any "toward."

You "did" receive a wristband for the line.

Period.

Oh, yeah, one more thing: don't bother bringing any sketchy stuff you may have acquired and expect Mariah to autograph it for you: you'll be outa there in a New York minute.

Not that any of my readers would have that sort of thing lying around anyway.

On another note, let me say that this is the second time in the past two weeks I've been delighted to be able to put up a post using a graphic from a New York Times ad, something I simply couldn't do prior to subscribing to the online edition at NewsStand.

Another perk of NewsStand is that many pictures which appear in black and white in the print edition are in their original color online.

Big, big difference and much better.
