I feel the same way, I love meeting people who enjoy Bollywood :-)
The songs are out of this world, I don’t know how they keep coming out with these awesome songs movie after movie, year after year! Best entertainment industry in the world :-D
I started a Facebook page yesterday! - Like Ris Lev ;-)
Once I’ve officially launched my Bollywood album project to the press next Friday I’ll need a Facebook page to send them to.
I’ll be playing live on BBC Radio and interviewed by DJ Noreen Khan next week, I just had an interview with Asiana magazine on Monday, and the offers keep coming in from all over the place, having a fun time trying to organize it all haha!
I’m a one-man operation, no PR team, no manager, just me phoning Bollywood producers and lyricists to get them to make an album with me and writing to journalists to get them interested in what I’m doing.
It’s definitely one of the most ambitious things I’ve ever tried to do, and I haven’t slept in months haha, but if I can find 4964 more people who are inspired by what I’m doing and want to pre-order my album for £5 by July 6th it will all be worth it. And if not, well it’ll still be my birthday that day, and I’m always happy when it’s my birthday ;-)
I feel the same way about Tumblr, it’s definitely a great place to discover how many people all across the world share the same passion as you.
Regret nothing is the way to be, Bollywood and everything related to Bollywood is awesome :-)
I definitely practice all the time, I recorded my cover of Lat Lag Gayee at the very beginning of the year and I think I’ve improved since then.
There are so many awesome Hindi songs I want to sing that I would never be able to devote enough time to get each one perfect, so I just do my best with a song for my videos then move on to the next beautiful song on my list ;-)
That’s actually one of the reasons I’m trying to make an album of my own hindi-language songs, it’ll be much easier to only have 8 songs of my own to work on getting perfect haha :-)
Thanks for the interest!
I’ll be 26 on July 6th! That’s also the day my Bollywood album project ends, so it’ll be extra special this year ;-)
Best 3 seconds of my life ;-)
Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching math to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasnât the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of âgritâ as a predictor of success.
The key message: talent is great, but grit and hard work are more important in the long run. Keep plowing forward, don’t fear failure (do learn from it - failure is a GREAT teacher), and always work hard.
