October, easily our busiest month in a long time, came and went, and we’re thrilled to have been able to share it with all of you loyal readers. A new month is well under way, and it’s time to take a look at what went down in its first week. Of course, this recap hardly does justice to a week in which Lil Wayne was finally released from prison and William Shatner took on a certain inappropriately titled Cee-Lo track. That said, check out our site for even more immensely relevant and entertaining news items, among other things.
