Sunday, February 6th, 2005
Doors open @ 6:00pm
The Vatikan (1032 Queen Street West, Toronto, Ontario)

In the Past Year: Anthony started to get massive headaches, constant sharp pains and migraines. Soon he started getting very weak as well. He went to the doctor for the first time in eight years. They ran many tests and found out that he had malignant brain cancer. From that point on, Anthony's life began to change. His girlfriend at the time left him. Her last words to him were "I don't want to be with someone who's going to die soon." Many of his friends became his enemies. His mom had been very sick and on October 2nd 2004, she passed away of a lung disease. His dad died when he was little. He is now on his own trying to fight cancer, and maintain a place to live. He is from Kentucky and does not have health care or enough money to see a doctor. He has only been able to receive diagnosis and has had only a few visits to the doctor since. He cannot afford medication, treatment or even a place to live. His friend Shari and SpineRazor Entertainment is asking everyone to come out on Sunday February 6 2005 to help make Anthony's visit to Toronto something he will have with him for the rest of his life. Lets show him that his neighbouring country cares and help make the last moments of his life special.

This multi-day event is called MUSEXPO and is an international music and media forum that will convene in Los Angeles, California, May 1-4, 2005 at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel in West Hollywood, CA on the Sunset Strip. The concept of MUSEXPO originates from the A&R Worldwide dinners that we initiated a few years ago. The general concept was to bring together (for one evening, over a nice dinner) creatively-minded professionals from the global music and media sectors -- all folks who were receptive to the idea of building key new relationships, discovering artists and new business opportunities in a constantly evolving industry. MUSEXPO is a representation of the two decades we've spent building and nurturing key domestic and international relationships with radio, A&R, publishers, film/TV music supervisors, media, managers, artists and others who, like you, are proactive and creative leaders in their respective fields. Therefore, we extend this personal invitation to you to join us at our exclusive event, as we know you will develop priceless new relationships and potential business opportunities for the future. The conference will place a strong emphasis on the discovery AND development of talent, creative avenues to market and break new artists, music showcases as well as assisting delegates with establishing essential relationships with like-minded professionals from around the world. Key global media partners have agreed to attend, as well as participate and actively promote MUSEXPO. Registration will be strictly limited, to enhance the interpersonal experience and enable maximum productivity. Therefore, we wanted to make sure that you were one of the first to receive a formal invitation from A&R Worldwide to join us for this great event. Again, we encourage you to join us and your global colleagues at MUSEXPO. We can assure you that we will make every effort to make sure you have a very enjoyable and productive time at this event. We very much look forward to seeing you there and look forward to introducing you to some new friends and opportunities.

The Global Entertainment & Media Summit Returns to New York City Saturday and Sunday, May 14-15

Whether it’s a future of on-demand entertainment on new ways of effectively marketing entertainment to the consumer marketplace, GEMS has, for the past several years---consistently provided incredibly insights to new and emerging opportunities that have, when utilized and taken advantage of, helped its audience achieve their goals they are seeking.

You will be immersed in a highly powerful and effective creative think-tank by participating in conferences, seminars and keynotes that will invigorate the senses, get you to think of new ideas and put them to use----and it’s not a techie show----but an event that captures the spirit of creation and the development of talent.

As the major companies have consolidated and radio airwaves have become controlled by a few mega-conglomerates, there are still new and exciting opportunities for those who know how to take advantage of opportunities, and those who know how to create them.
