An inflatable pink pig, which was made famous on the sleeve of the 1976 Pink Floyd album 'Animals', and flies once again over Battersea Power Station in south west London, Monday, Sept. 26 2011, 35 years later, to announce the launch of the reissue and collector's edition of "Why Pink Floyd....?".

Soul man
Still maintaining his signature soulful style, legendary singer Daryl Hall released Laughing Down Crying on Sept. 27, his fifth solo album. This new offering feels fresh and current while still giving a nod to his Philly roots. Hall is anything but "Out of Touch."

Shoot to the Moon
We Choose The Moon (, a website created by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum to honor the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon, lets you experience the trip every step of the way. Beautiful graphics, audio, and a transcript of communication between Mission Control and the astronauts during the journey bring the historic journey to life.

Pigs fly again
If you love you some Pink Floyd, October is definitely your month. Beginning with the megasmash Dark Side of the Moon, all 14 Pink Floyd albums will be rolled out in regalia, separately, or as six CD/DVD boxed sets, including remastered CDs, with loads of outtakes and live performances in both audio and video. All 14 albums will be available on high-quality vinyl as well. Shine on.

Guten app!
