SMiLe.dk Strikes Back this Summer

smile.dk doki doki

2008 is the year of come backs, with Cyndi Lauper, Paula Abdul and now SMiLe.dk.  I’m sure you have danced to the songs like “Butterfly” and “Boys” on DDR. The dance group that swept the world of DDR is coming back after a long break, with their brand new single “Doki Doki.”  They will be performing live at San Japan, an anime convention located in San Antonio, Texas, USA, on August 9th, 2008 (visit http://www.san-japan.org for more info).

You can listen to their songs from Doki Doki on their website. The party starts August 2008!

No Pussyfooting Around With Japan

If only it had a mouth, that fatuous feline Hello Kitty would certainly be smiling.

Japan has appointed the mouthless moggy as a goodwill tourism ambassador in Hong Kong and China. It marks the first time a cartoon character has become a goodwill ambassador for Japan under the governments campaign launched in 2003 to promote visits to the country.

A Hello Kitty blog will be on the campaign website to introduce tourist attractions in Japan. Sounds like a game of cat and mouse to me.

P.S. Am I the only one who is freaked out by the fact that this thing hasn’t got a mouth?

Animated Britney Spears is hotter

After the Gorillaz, Linkin Park and even Shakira, now Britney Spears is having an animated version of her music video “Break the ice.” Apparently she’s been too busy helping her dad to deal with the legal issues. In this video she’s a cloned/man-made assassin of some sort with super human abilities (Bionic woman anyone?)

The video didn’t do her justice though, the animated version of her is too sane and sober (not to mention hot.)
