You know what a samba is, right? Two-four time: boom chi chi, boom chi chi, boom chi chi. Well, there's a style of samba called batucada where it's just drums, and another style called pagode, pronounced something like pagawj, that includes singing, drumming and a ukulele-like instrument called the cavaquinho. You'd hear these sounds at Carnival time in Rio, but if for some reason you can't make it to Rio, go to Clark Park in West Philadelphia on Saturday. It's the annual Clark Park Summer Freedom Festival, a daylong celebration of song, dance and fun, all free.

Djuna Wojton describes the kitchen in her Northern Liberties home as a place where arguments can brew. Wojton, a hypnotherapist, and her husband, Bruce Pollock, an artist, enjoy cooking together in their new home, but they were aware of the potential for friction to arise. "The original architect of this kitchen designed it for someone whose cooking (amounted to) boiling a pot of water or microwaving a plate of something," said Wojton. Wojton and Pollock remedied the situation by consulting with Melanie Lewandowski.

A team book starring Misty Knight; Colleen Wing; Black Cat; Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu; Tarantula; and Orka, the Killer Whale would usually have trouble making it past the pitch stage. After all, Shang-Chi is the only one who has been able to sustain his own series. So the odds were against "Heroes for Hire" being a sales success. It has been surprise hit, however, for several reasons. First, writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray are telling, fun, fast-paced stories.

GAYE BIO GOING FROM MINISERIES TO MOVIE The bad news is that the proposed NBC miniseries of late soulman Marvin Gaye has been scrapped. The good news is that the biopic will be made instead for the big screen, according to Motown Productions President Suzanne DePasse. "We're now developing the screenplay in-house because we want to control it to a certain extent," she said. "A lot of people want to concentrate more on the tragedy of his death, but that's not what Marvin was about," De Passe said.

To set the mood, one can whisper sweet nothings in a date's ear. Or one can slowly read aloud the menu of Apropos. Grilled calf's liver with dried Montmorency cherries and kirsch served with carmelized quince rings. But bring a dictionary. The chi-chi restaurant at 211 S. Broad St. is packed with the well-heeled grabbing drinks or dinner before an evening out on the town. The Academy of Music is across the street. The Walnut and Forrest theaters are also nearby. The restaurant becomes crowded again after the theater lets out. And on Friday and Saturday nights about 11, there is an added attraction: a hot Brazilian band called Minas.

Nihilistic fatalism . Not a term one usually associates with Seth MacFarlane . But that's how he feels about doing the most dangerous job he's ever done: hosting the Oscars. "There is sort of a comfort in knowing that no matter what you do, you're going to get the same reactions in the reviews," the Family Guy creator says. "So I could put on the worst or the best show in the world and I will still be flayed by the press. " Seth, 39, is stuck: If he does what he's famous for - sharp, gutter-level jokes à la American Dad , then the chi-chi crowd will walk out. He says he'll try to strike a balance between Billy Crystal 's classic charm and Ricky Gervais ' shark-toothed satire: "The whole point of their bringing me on was to give it a little bit more of an edge.

Comic Jackie Mason, just back from a sold-out Australian tour, reopened in his "Politically Incorrect" show on B'way Monday night. Just in time for Gov.-elect George Pataki's inauguration on Sunday. Mason and shock-jock Howard Stern are the only entertainers invited to the Albany festivities. Both used their forums to support the Republican gov-to-be when he ran against incumbent Mario Cuomo. Mason and Stern often collaborated on Stern's radio show once the trashmouth - not wanting to reveal how much money he rakes in from making offensive bodily noises on air - dropped from the gov's race himself.

EVEN THOUGH two months and a heartbreaking reunion with the wrong dog had passed since Nia Kora's beloved Pomeranian, Chi-Chi, was stolen during a burglary at her Francisville apartment, the Penn State nursing student held out hope that she'd see her dog again. Over the weekend, Kora's wish came true when a salon owner who had unknowingly bought Chi-Chi - whom he knew as Candy - days after the July 30 burglary spotted a Daily News story last week about Kora accidentally being reunited with the wrong dog. "Something inside me felt like, 'Hold up, a dog was stolen in the summer, and it wasn't too far from my barbershop, at the same time I got my dog, the same kind of dog, the dog wasn't answering to her name,' " Henry Collins, who owns Mecca Unisex Salon in Progress Plaza on Broad Street, said yesterday.

When Seok Seo Park was 18, he began practicing tai chi and a martial art called hapkido. At tournaments, he would see people get injured, and he became interested in how to alleviate muscular problems and pain. He enrolled at the Pusan School for Acupuncture in South Korea and the Taipei Changron Chinese Medicine College in China. Over time, his focus became chi energy healing, and he studied with 30 to 40 masters, adopting what he considered most effective and developing his own system.

IN "MAN OF TAI CHI" everybody is not kung fu fighting. One guy is beating the tar out of kung fu specialists with his own version of tai chi, best known for its deliberate movements and meditative attributes.

Whispering in Tiger's other ear - a ruthless businessman (Keanu Reeves, the movie's director)

The details: The spicy pulled-pork sliders with pickled cucumbers (two for $7) hit the spot, but Ka'Chi also sells lots of Bulgogi (beef) and soy-ginger chicken tacos (one for $3 or three for $8) and rice bowls ($8), made with red cabbage and vinaigrette slaw.

Dun Mark is the kind of person who makes Chinatown a community, not merely a place to live. Cross Spring Street early weekday mornings, cut through the alley to the basketball court tucked behind the Chinese Christian Church, and you'll find Mark teaching tai chi to senior citizens, free of charge. Some of his students are 80 or older. "They're healthy as hell," Mark said. So is he. At 88, Mark is fit, strong, and expecting to be around for a while. His mother lived to 107. On Saturday, he and his graying-but-vibrant students will perform at the 17th annual Mid-Autumn Festival, expected to draw 5,000 to Chinatown from across the Philadelphia region for kung fu exhibitions, Peking opera, health screenings, and a moon cake-eating contest.

Despite a torrent of spleen - moral, ethical, aesthetic, and legal - pouring forth from the British royal family, Italian gossip mag Chi on Monday published a 26-page spread featuring topless photos of Britain's future queen - Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge ( Kate Middleton to her friends). Taken by a paparazzo while the royal couple were on holiday in the south of France, the pics were published last week in France's Closer mag. Kate's hub, Prince William , has filed a lawsuit and a criminal complaint against the mag.
