This week just gone

Despite running a light-touch holiday service for two weeks, traffic was up 2% over the last month. Maybe I should stop posting altogether (Yes! yes! cry the Susan Boyle fans as one).

These have been the best-read October stories so far:
1. Latest on the Glastonbury tickets
2. RIP: Stephen Gately
3. Susan Boyle launches her 'dream' album
4. RIP: Mercedes Sosa
5. Download: The XX remix Florence And The Machine
6. MySpace refuse to allow Edwyn Collins to give away his own music
7. Dave Grohl and Josh Homme get camera shy
8. Jan Moir kicks Stephen Gately's corpse
9. Liam Gallagher sues Guardian over bad review
10. Kelly Rowlands pissed with MOBO sound

And these were a few things released that caught out eye:
