You guys familiar with local comic Steve Lee? He's a young Asian-American gentleman whose act has a lot to do with the plight of, you know, being a young Asian-American gentleman. Have a look at his video for the song "Say Herro" from the album Dirty South Korea. Right now he's embroiled in a heated competition: He entered a jingle contest via Jack FM for Hermitage Lighting Gallery, and the winner will receive $1,000 along with $1,000 worth of presumably swanky lighting. From the email Lee sent me [sic]:
D PAT RODGE.
How are you? OKay so haha i have entered this contest at jack fm to make a lighting jingle for Hermitage Lighting Gallary, first place is 1,000 dollars and a 1,000 dollars in lights from the store. I am in a neck and neck contest with this other lady who is someho still beating me! i figured since I am a musician in the scene and you post local music stuff on the blog I would see if you would post this to help me win. I am past the point of begging people, my pride was lost many, many years ago.
As the man said, times is hard '09. He's got my vote. Go here and vote for Jingle No. 9. Number nine. Number nine. Number nine. Oh, and Steve? If you win, I want a swanky fixture. Something that would look nice in a drug cove.
