I’m so grateful to the 39 backers who have already funded 1/3 of my Inshares project, 101 Places Every Pop Culture Fan Should See, and am hopeful I can reach my full goal by June 25, with your help!

101 Places is the first pop culture travel guide that will include all of the best, most exciting (and most fun!) events and places I’ve seen since starting OLV back in 2006, along with tips from our readers about the gatherings, filming locations, and experiences they love, too. It will also be one of the first crowdfunded travel guides, ever.

Below is the first excerpt from the book. A look at one of my Top Ten Tips and most unforgettable life experiences!

#6 Be A Movie Extra

Being part of a movie is on many a fan’s life list but attending open casting calls or registering with a casting agencies can be stressful and expensive – it might even be impossible for fans who aren’t near much filming. Good thing there’s another option. Be In A Movie gives fans the chance to be extras in big budget films all across the country without any rigmarole. These are not paid roles but you do get a free meal and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Best of all, all you have to do is sign up on their website. There is no application process and you don’t have to be a local. You know that big football scene in “The Dark Knight Rises”? I was in it thanks to Be In A Movie! Check out what projects they have coming up at

If you want to help me reach my goal and get 101 Places into the hands of fans (and get lots of cool incentives like pre-order copies, OLV stickers, OLV t-shirts, and free downloads of my NYC guide) visit
