For all Lara fans, she's recently emerged with something new and exciting that she's been working on! As a person living between California and taipei for many years , her and sister esther still call taipei home and want to share the craziness of taipei culture. They've developed a 13 episode film series with a bunch of eclectic characters including a gay youth who can get drinks free from any bar , and Lara as a shallow and vain secretary!
It's an opportunity for you to not only get to know more about Lara's acting skills as well as Esther's directing skills , but also to immerse yourself in a different side of taipeis culture .

Here are some of the new MVS that have been released for Lara , the first is her third single called <舒适的监牢>(A comfortable jail). Its a really creative music video and as always shows Lara's really complex and interesting ideas. It is one of the core songs that relate to the theme of the album , and is also Lara's favourite song!
The second new music video is actually for Lara's duet with fellow label mate and friend singer/songwriter/producer Gary yang for his song from his most recent album <I am not a gentleman>. I really love the harmonies , and again really love the way that the music video was made , very artistically. The lyrics for this song was written by Lara , and the melody by Gary himself. It is called <黑色静态>(black static).
Now , as you may have seen from the title of the song , it really isn't a song thats for everyone. I.e. if you are under the age of 15 , I suggest you not watch this. But first of all , all of you may be asking , Who is gary yang?
Well , I'll tell you. Gary Yang is a producer with Jay Chou's record company JVR music , and has produced songs for Lara Liang , nan Quan mama , Cindy Yen and The Drifters , not to mention Jay Chou. This time around , he is releasing his new EP <I'm not a gentleman> , with <Bullshit> as his first single.
It really is something else altogether , this type of creativity coupled with dark humour in the MV especially really makes it enjoyable to be listenening to something to refreshingly different. So to those who are up to it , support Gary by listening to this song!
An apt sentence from Gary himself that sums up both the emotions of the song and of the EP is this:"I observe, I feel, and I blend all emotions into my music. Because I'm not a gentleman."
