All Together Monday

It’s awfully nice to to see Sir Paul, the McCartney daughters, and Yoko Ono in one sunny setting, united for a cause: to promote the concept of Meat Free Monday (going veggie on Mondays to reduce greenhouse gas emissions).

So nice, in fact, that I can see myself jumping on board: who can’t rock meatless mapo tofu, seitan tacos, and veggie steam buns to kick off every week? I mean, it’s just the preserving the planet we’re talking about here. And, uh, seeing PAUL AND YOKO IN THE SAME HAPPY PHOTO.

We basically love everything about the Hong Kong-born, California-raised Jane Lui. There’s that sweet, naturally pretty face of hers, coupled with her skinny frame and goofy-adorable aesthetic. And there’s her very familiar immigrant story and too-cute happy energy. But above all things, we love the strong, smoky, sensual voice that emanates from somewhere within the tiny person: a power tool that comes unexpectedly from its host.

Since discovering Lui’s greatness, we’ ve combed through her official site, stalked her on MySpace and Facebook, followed her on Twitter, and subscribed to her YouTube channel–uh, call us superfans (or creeps). What we really can’t seem to get enough of, though, is this collaboration with YouTube star SingingDork888, a cover of The Turtles’ classic “Happy Together” that gives us all kind of sweetheart tingles:

It makes us sigh, like black-and-white pictures of our parents when they were skinny, young, and smiling.

SoCal residents, catch some live Jane Lui action with DISGRASIAN favorites Kina Grannis and David Choi this month (May 14th at 6pm) at the UC Riverside campus Bell Tower. We’re gonna try and be cool in the back, but it’ll be hard.

Thanks, Meena!
