I THINK I JUST GOT A JOB.

From the friggin' BBC.

Yes, BB-GODDAMN-C.

Long story short, I blog about Bollywood movies, and my blog among other foreign fan blogs on Indian movies has caught the eye of Indian media. I've been featured, email-interviewed by journalists.. Two of my blogger friends visited London and talked their way into being on BBC Asian Network's LoveBollywood radio show, a show that plays Bollywood music and features news and discussions on Bollywood films. Cool, huh?

I emailed the show when my friends were on it, and after learning they had a listener in Finland, the people on radio kept in touch, I kept in touch, and eventually they were like, "Would you like to write some stuff for us?" and I sent them some things, they loved it and want me to do like .. small reports, a foreigner's perspective on Bollywood, starting the end of the summer.

It's not a full-time job, just a little something I might not even get paid for at first - and I'll admit it's more like freelance than anything - but it's just super, super cool and I'm thrilled and just ...!!!! This is awesome, awesome news.

I'd be more specific but they asked me not to talk about it much.

So I guess beginning July you guys can hear me on the radio! :DD

Thirded. Talk about someone's manboobs, and say that someone else is not cool in 2008.

Whoever made up the tag, I lol'ed.

("omistuksessa" is Finnish for 'owned', literally "under ownership" as in "this property is under ownership of the government" or something - though to nitpick, since 'owned' is a slang-like verb form - as in 'you got owned', there's not really a good Finnish equivalent for it, hence the adoption of "owned" as well as the bastardization 'pwn' into the Finnish language "sä ounasit/pwnasit sen!" - "you owned/pwned it!".)

"Vera ounasit sinulle" would be more correct then? ;]

Although I only read the thread today you still got me. I was about to post a small note of congratulations too.

Congratulations on a great April Fool though.
