Still looking for that perfect Xmas present? “Yoga”, the world’s first true Yoga game for the Nintendo Wii, helps you focus on your spiritual and physical wellbeing, balance and serenity, right in your living room. A wonderful gift for young and old – and perfect for people who want to stay fit and healthy, and relax at the same time. Yoga practitioner Anja Rubik, one of the world’s top models, will guide you through the game.
In late November, Austrian software publisher JoWooD Entertainment will release the first true-bred, 100% Yoga game. This unique game offers interactive Yoga training sessions in seven huge levels showing authentic Asian locations and buildings. No matter if you’re an experienced Yoga practitioner or new to this fascination topic, Yoga for Wii will help you understand each Asana in detail and help you create your individually customized training plan. An interactive Yoga Guru will support you throughout your training efforts, and famous Yoga practitioner Anja Rubik – ranked #3 is the world’s top model list – will guide you through the central parts of the game and tell you some of her personal Yoga secrets. Using the Balance Board, players also receive important feedback on how well they’re doing in Balance and Breathing exercises. (Of course, Yoga Wii can also be played without a Wii Balance Board.)
You know where you are? You’re in the jungle, baby.
D-Sisive returns with his newest creation, Jonestown. The free album is the follow up to his Polaris Long-Listed album ‘Let The Children Die’, which featured the SOCAN/Echo award winning song ‘Nobody With A Notepad’.
“It’s the Kool Aid,” describes D-Sisive of his newest LP. The Juno nominated artist decided to take a break from his dark/depressing content to focus on the “punchline/battle-rap” style he became known for in the late nineties. The album boasts production from heavyweights Muneshine (Sean Price), Moss (Ghostface, Obie Trice), Anonymous Twist (Planet Asia), Murr (LAL, formerly of The Grassroots), Toronto-born/NY-based Marco Polo (Heltah Skeltah, Masta Ace), 9th Uno and Shinogo. Toronto artist Slim Twig (paper bag records) also makes an appearance on the Shinogo produced ‘Around The World’. The Muneshine produced single ‘West Coast’ is already charting across the country.
“It’s a secret,” laughs D-Sisive after asked to explain the connection between the album’s content and it’s title. Jonestown will be released Wednesday, November 18, 2009, also marking the 31st anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre.
D-Sisive:Jonestown is available exclusively through www.d-sisive.com

Makers of the Sorte Necklace and Brazilet Bracelet Partner with O.N.E. Natural Experience and Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund
The creators of the Sorte necklace and Brazilet Bracelets have teamed up with O.N.E. Natural Experience – committed to preserving the earth by using renewable resources – as well as the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund and Plant A Billion Trees project, committed to rebuilding the storm-ravaged areas of New Orleans and preserving the Amazon rainforest, respectively.
The Sorte necklace – currently popular in Brazil – is designed to give luck and protection behind and in front of you, while the Brazilets make your wishes come true. Both stylish and demure, there are three styles of Sorte necklaces to choose from: silver, crystal (crystal onyx, crystal pyrite, and pyrite gold), and mother of pearl (red, purple, brown, and blue).
A 200 year-old tradition from mystical Bahia, Brazil, “Brazilets” are worn throughout Latin America and provide a spiritual significance for all who wear them. Wrap Brazilets around your wrist and tie three knots, making a wish with each knot. When your Brazilets naturally break down and fall off, it is believed that your three wishes will come true! With Brazilets, you now have a colorful, attractive way to proclaim your wishes while also making a real contribution to future generations.
Brazilets have been worn by celebs like Lauren Conrad, Carson Kressley & even Katie Couric.
In 2008, Kael Robinson started Brazilets & Sorte as a way to share Brazil’s wonderful wish bracelets with the rest of the world. She wanted to bring the rest of the world these miraculous bracelets because from the first ruby brazilet she wore her wishes came true.
The mixtape is finally here. A.K.I.R. enlists Statik Selektah and DJ Static to host and mix this 22 track mixtape featuring J-Ro (Alkaholiks), Ali Vegas, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Jah Warrior and more. Select tracks have been featuring on NahRight.com, HipHopDX.com, 2DopeBoyz.com, Ballerstatus.com, XClusivezone.net, HipHopGame.com, RapCypher.com and tons more, with additional radio play across the US and Canada.

Multi-talented Montreal native, Nico Archambault is about to add another accomplishment to his already impressive resume. The award-winning dancer and sought after choreographer has been personally selected by pop music icon Janet Jackson to perform alongside her during her opening performance at the American Music Awards on November 22. Already a household name in Canada, having been voted “Canada’s Favourite Dancer” for the first season of the hit show So You Think You Can Dance Canada, Nico’s work with Jackson is a powerful endorsement of his international appeal.
“Every dancer has dreamed of performing with Janet Jackson. She is an icon and a pop music innovator. I grew up inspired by her landmark videos and live performances. I’m truly honored and privileged to have been chosen to dance alongside her!” says Nico.
Recently, Nico also danced alongside Jackson in the video for her new single Make Me and unbeknown to the public, at the beginning of 2010, Nico had previously been invited by Kenny Ortega to audition for Michael Jackson’s comeback mega-show at the London O2 arena. In a gutsy and risky move, Nico turned down the offer, which would have required a two-year contract, to remain committed to various artistic and personal projects.
In addition to being a formidable dancer and choreographer, Nico is also establishing himself in the acting world with a supporting role and his first film choreography credit in the upcoming Family Channel TV-movie Vacation with Derek, based on the hit TV show Life With Derek, which was distributed worldwide by the Family Channel and Disney.
Nico is a co-founder of the critically acclaimed electro-pop group Pinup Saints and is directly involved with the staging of its raunchy shows. The group released their debut album Golden in September of this year and recently inked a deal with S.L. Feldman & Associates for their live representation. Their debut video, Mister can be seen on Much Music’s The Wedge and Musique Plus online.
Known for his edgy and alternative sense of style, Nico appeared in the Gotstyle runway show at LG Toronto Fashion Week 2009, sporting clothing by designer Costa Pavlou. Most recently, he has lent his name towards a charitable cause close to his heart, teaming up with apparel retailer TXT Carbon to design the limited edition “Stand UP! Rise Above” T-shirt as part of Family Channel’s Bullying Awareness Week campaign. Two exclusive media launch events for this campaign will occur in Toronto on November 24 and in Montreal on November 25.
