I'd probably go with whichever one has the greater personal interest to you, and then whichever one you have the greatest access to native speakers for practice, help, and general utility.

In terms of interest, Japan or China, definitely. Thailand is certainly fascinating to me, but... Japan and China moreso

Is there any truth left to the anecdotal stories of white people being able to find side incomes doing things like acting or as musicians or what have you with relative ease? It seems like there are enough foreigners there now that it wouldn't be the case... as noted above, I'm a musician, I've DJ'ed and made beats before in LA, SF, NYC, and Boston. I'm also 6'2, blonde haired and blue eyed, muscled and fit the "American" stereotypical look to a T (OH YEAH!! ). Anything I could do to earn a few extra bucks in my time there, right?
I got a temp acting job on one of my visits to Taiwan. I don't think it's something you could make a regular living at, though.

Learn the language that you really desire or enjoy! I did hear that the live band music scene in China has been growing enormously... especially in Shanghai.
