ROCK OF ASIAN: Give Jane Lui Some Money, Honey

February 17th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana



Things are looking good for Jane Lui. After a whirlwind 2009 (Thank you, YouTube!), the mistress of melancholy has  herself a good therapist, a fresh look on life, and a new sound she’s ready to play with. That’s right, play. Our girl’s in a good place right now and she wants to share!

Says Lui:

“I’m learning daily as I go, and have found a new side to my songwriting/soundscaping that’s nudging me in my sleep. So, for the New Record, I want to follow wherever this feeling is taking me, and bring something bright and shiny to the table.

But after self-funding two solo albums in 2005 and 2007 (both available at CD Baby), the indie singer/songwriter knows all too well how long it could take to save up for a new recording. Frankly, happiness can’t wait.

And so she is doing a 60-day fundraiser in pursuit of happiness. The goal: $12k to make the New Record a reality, an all-or-nothing effort in which no one is charged if the goal isn’t met. After a week, pledges have gotten her 27% of the way there. Can she go all…the..way? Can we help her?

Hell, the Hit King has already done most of the work for us. Here’s what he said during a radio interview on Houston’s KGOW (via Sports Radio Interviews):

“You know, my girl’s a real educated girl – she graduated from Arizona State. She had a very prestigious job several years ago when she was a flight attendant for Korean Airlines, which is really a big deal in Korea, and she’s Korean. And let’s just hope that the Playboy people like her, and if they don’t, that’s okay too. We’ll just turn the page and thank them for the opportunity.”

[Insert thousands of jokes here]

But to be perfectly honest with you… really, really, really all I can think about are those crazy awesome torpedos busting out of her shirt in the above picture. They keep tossing my head back into the surf of an Internet ocean filled with nonsense. That sea includes PuffyLover.com, a site that celebrates–um– “puffies,” as in–er– “puffy nipples.”
