They are able to roll, scratch themselves and even sneeze! These three siblings are joining our ever growing hedgehog population.

Roger Waters The Wall received its global debut on September 29, as part of an incredible, one-night cinematic event. Now, fans in the U.S. are being given a second chance to be part of the experience with new dates added starting October 15.

Roger Waters The Wall unfolds on many levels – as an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters’ reckoning with the past and as a stirring anti-war feature, highlighting the human cost of conflict.

The feature was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-2013 ‘The Wall Live’ tour – the biggest selling tour by any solo artist in history – seen by over 4 million fans worldwide over a period of three years in 219 shows. It features never before seen concert footage from this breathtaking tour and includes the hits ‘Another Brick in the Wall Part 2’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Run Like Hell’. Audiences will also have a unique opportunity to see The Simple Facts, with Waters and Nick Mason – reunited, unscripted and in conversation to answer questions submitted by the fans from around the world.

John Rubey, Fathom Events CEO, said, “We were so pleased with the overwhelming response to the first broadcast of this event, and are ready to bring Roger Waters’ vision to fans a second time. Moviegoers will get a unique opportunity to see a new take on a beloved musical masterpiece.”

Marc Allenby, Director of Distribution at Picturehouse Entertainment, said, “With the overwhelming success of the premiere and the addition of encore showings of Roger Waters The Wall, we are thrilled this brilliant film will find an even broader audience.”

Roger Waters The Wall is a Rue 21 Productions presentation of a feature by Roger Waters and Sean Evans.

Brooklyn band Celestial Shore put out a great interactive video for their song Animal Ratio. You get to mess up, screw around, and knock over tons of stuff in their rehearsal space while the band keeps playing. Chris Priestman, director of the video says, “This is an interactive music video for the song Animal Ratio by Celestial Shore. Using your mouse, you can emit pulses of an invisible force inside the space where the band jams out their jumpy, alternative rock.

You can adjust the power and ratio of the force that’s emitted with the sliders. So you can let out tiny burps that knock paper cups and vinyl records off the table, or a huge body-flinging pound that quickly turns everything to chaos while the band continues to play.”

Apple has officially launched its streaming music service in China. The company announced Wednesday that Apple Music will cost 10 RMB per month, or only $1.50 US, but not before users exhaust a three-month trial membership.

It was also announced that iTunes Movies and iBooks are both now available in China, which is already the company’s largest market for app downloads.

The low price for Apple Music in China is actually in line with other streaming services there, like Tencent’s QQ Music. Other music competitors in China include Netease and Baidu, and all are faced with trying to get listeners to pay for the stuff after years of downloading pirated music for free. How hard is it to crack the China market? In 2012, Google shuttered its (free) licensed music download service there due to lack of interest.
