That's the new ride that replaced 'It's a Small World' at Tokyo Disneyland, right?

A very nice samba, that.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Reminds me of this Max Fleischer Betty Boop classic.

Miho Hatori is also in the Gorillaz.

Yeah, hydro, that's what I was thinking. The great classic redone by the artists of "Juxtapos" magazine. With a different great singer.

It also reminded me of It's a Small World. Tim Burton style.

delmoi: Don't forget handsome Boy Modeling School. "Metaphysical" is a great song.

It's hard to downshift after seeing Paprika yesterday, but I like it.

She's done quite a bit of work with Smokey Hormel, too (which is where she first publicly got her samba on).

I'm a huge CM fan and saw her with this new band recently - she's very personable and does a great live show. If you get a chance to see her in a small venue, it's lots of fun. She's very chatty and loves to talk with the audience and do requests ... lots of fun and what a great voice!

Luriete, I saw Smokey & Miho at a show in Brooklyn a few years back. Small venue and they sounded great. It would've been a great show had it not been for the constant chatter by all the kids there that were too cool for school. They were obnoxious enough where Miho had to plead w/ the crowd twice for everyone to keep it down.

This is the kind of thing I imagine Björk would have been able to do had she not lost her talent back in the late 90s.
