bollywood is a bigger movie industry than hollywood and you can get legit paid gigs as a white english speaker
Coach Ron Rivera urges a fan "call to arms"

Any experience doing that?
Also in going to a massive movie premier on Thursday where I'll meet all the telagu movie industry people.
And I'm tollywood, not bollywood. Every major religion (5 or so) has its own hollywood type thing. Telagu has 70 million speakers in India, and its movie industry is actually the largest. Each state's movie industry is a little bit different. Mumbai is the most westernized, while the one I'm in is just absolute nonsense the entire time.
Goa is the one that has all the bad ass fight scenes.

i made a martial arts movie when i was 13 and wore a fake mustache and played all the villains and that's the extent of my movie experience
however i hung out with a dude from estonia in australia and he'd just backpacked across india and got approached by an agent who asked him if he wanted to be paid to play a part in a movie and speak english... he ended up on the set for a couple days and got a pretty good chunk of change. i also met a guy who told me he'd done the same thing in thailand, and my thai is passable so i debated trying to worm my way onto the set of one of those excruciating thai soap operas they play on all the busses just for the laffs but i never bothered
edit: actually the estonian guy's experience was with tollywood now that you mention it

btw if you're anywhere near new delhi an old backpacking buddy of mine is a lawyer (and philosopher) and a real cool motherfuger, he could prob give you an inside track to hookups in the city (perhaps not in the film industry but connections are connections)

I'll be at the Chiefs game with my father-in-law celebrating his 60th birthday since going to the game is what he wanted to do, but the last time I missed a Panthers game of this magnitude was for a conference in St. Louis... during the 2003 playoffs... I was literally a block away from the dome during the game and couldn't go or watch on TV. That turned out well, so I'm keeping the faith.
