A look at the art photography of Bunny Yeager, starring Bettie Page? We can think of less pleasant ways to pass the time. Savant raises his standards to check out what’s happening in the disc section behind the gray curtain, and finds that the fringe product suppliers are up to their old tricks.

It doesn’t take long to sort out 100 Girls by Bunny Yeager, a new Blu-ray release from Cult Epics. An instinctive glamour photographer, Ms. Yeager is best known for her pretty images of fresh-faced nude models, taken mostly on the beach near her Florida home.

The Lineup for A Tribute to James Burrows Is Here, and No, It’s Still Not a Friends Reunion
The Friends reunion is here! Just kidding, it is 100 percent not a Friends reunion, so please stop calling it that. Sure, the gang is getting back together, but only five out of six of them, and no one even invited James Michael "Gunther" Tyler or Tom "Eye Doctor Richard" Selleck. Now that that's out of the way, here's what it really is: a tribute to director James Burrows, who is recognized as TV’s most accomplished comedy director. He's done The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, Will & Grace, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Mike & Molly. The special will celebrate his 1,000th episode of TV with his new NBC comedy Crowded.Scheduled to be in attendance will be the casts of the following shows. (Others may also be added.) Cheers: Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Bebe Neuwirth, Rhea Perlman, John Ratzenberger, George Wendt (Kirstie Alley,

5 Things to Know About Benedict Cumberbatch's New Fiancée, Sophie Hunter
We already know that Benedict Cumberbatch is devastatingly fluent in pillow talk, having recently ignited the Internet with the sexiest violin metaphor ever. As his alter ego Sherlock Holmes, "I'd know exactly how to please a woman, I'd know exactly where to put my fingers, where to put my tongue, where to put my - his, I should say - his fingers, his tongue," he recently told Elle UK. "Think about violinists, think about what they can do with their fingers." (Breathe.) More of a mystery, however, is the woman who captured his heartstrings: fiancée Sophie Hunter. Here are five

In with Flynn, part 1 by Anne-Katrin Titze

Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon in Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's The Last Of Robin Hood: "The real Errol Flynn can't quite live up to Errol Flynn, the idol."

In a Trump SoHo Hotel suite, high above the city, I met up with The Last Of Robin Hood directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland for a conversation on Kevin Kline's portrayal of Errol Flynn. Susan Sarandon and Dakota Fanning as Florence and Beverly Aadland led us to Marjorie Morningstar, starring Gene Kelly and Natalie Wood - Too Much, Too Soon and the Barrymore clan - Groucho Marx and You Bet Your Life - John Huston's Roots Of Heaven and all the way down to Barry Mahon's Cuban Rebel Girls.

Earlier, I had spoken with Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth about 20,000 Days On Earth, their documentary on and with Nick Cave, at the Regency Hotel.

Rest in Peace: Mike Vraney

While his name may not jump out at you at first, I can promise you that Mike Vraney was an important part of just about every horror fan's life, and unfortunately he's been taken from us far too soon. Vraney, the founder of Something Weird Video, has passed on at the age of just 56.

From the Something Weird Video Facebook Page

In Memorium Mike Vraney Founder of Something Weird December 29, 1957 to January 2, 2014

We regret to tell you that Something Weird’s founder, Mike Vraney, passed away on January 2, 2014 after a long heroic battle with lung cancer. He was 56 years old, way too young to leave this planet. There was still so much Mike wanted to do in his life, so many films to be found, and adventures to be embarked upon.

This sad news may come as a shock to most of you. Mike was a very private person and didn’t want anyone,

'X Factor': Can you remember all the week 1 eliminations?

We all remember the X Factor winners. Leona. James. Little Mix. Alexandra. Erm. Lee-Lee...Leon? Erm. And, obviously, the other ones.

But what about the acts that aren't so lucky? What about the people who get set aside by the Great British public after only one week? Are you an X Factor Pub Quiz champion - can you name them all? Take a look back with our pictures below and see how many you even vaguely remember.

TV Review: Episodes 2.6

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

There’s no escaping that last week’s installment was below par, so it’s a relief that the sixth episode is a return to form.

Sean and Beverly get closer as they attempt to write Matt’s speech for Merc’s ‘man of the year’ award, and Matt tries to get one of his old Friends co-stars to do a guest role on Pucks.

This may sound like a thread bare story to hang an entire 30 minute episode on, but this gave us some of the best one liners and awkward moments. Right from the first scene where Matt’s stalker appears almost naked,

It’s coming up for Sweeps season, this time of year has TV networks on edge as all their shows ratings are evaluated. Morning is able to work past her cosmetic surgery mishap, aided by $40,000 worth of digital special effects.

Amelia makes X Factor return

Amelia Lily was voted back onto 'X Factor' last night (12.11.11). The pink-haired hopeful beat off competition from previous axed contestants 2 Shoes, James Michael and Jonjo Kerr in a pubic vote to re-enter the ITV1 show as a replacement for Frankie Cocozza, who was chucked off the programme for boasting about taking cocaine. Amelia received 48 per cent of the vote and sang live on last night's show - which experienced technical difficulties, forcing ITV to air 16 minutes of highlights while the problems were addressed - with a rendition of Queen's aptly-named song 'The Show Must Go On'.

Kitty Brucknell, Janet Devlin, Marcus Collins on 'X Factor' twist
X Factor's Kitty Brucknell, Janet Devlin and Marcus Collins have told Digital Spy which of their former rivals they want voted back into the competition tonight. Following Frankie Cocozza's shock exit earlier this week, it was announced that either Amelia Lily, Jonjo Kerr, James Michael or 2 Shoes would win the vacant place in the live shows. Speaking after rehearsals for tonight's live show, Brucknell admitted that she would have "loved" fellow Overs finalist Johnny Robinson to return after his exit last week. "I like 2 Shoes. I want 2 Shoes back," she said. "I know it sounds weird, I should probably be backing Jonjo, but let's face it, he wasn't very nice to me. For the fun, I want 2 Shoes back!" After his elimination in the first week, Kerr criticised (more)

Frankie Cocozza 'X Factor' exit is bittersweet, says Amelia Lily
Previous X Factor eliminees Amelia Lily and James Michael have shared their thoughts on Frankie Cocozza's exit from the competition. Lily and Michael spoke at a press conference on Thursday, where it was revealed that they would face a public vote alongside 2Shoes and Jonjo Kerr to determine which act will return to the competition to replace Cocozza. Both hopefuls expressed their regret at the turn of events, but admitted that their renewed opportunity for X Factor success since Cocozza's elimination softened the blow. "Well, obviously it's very sad that he's had to leave the competition. But it's also very nice that it's given me an opportunity. You could say it is bittersweet," Lily said. "I haven't spoken to him, but hopefully he's doing alright." Michael added: "I (more)

Amelia Lily has said she does not bear a grudge against Kelly Rowland over her X Factor exit.

Rowland voted out the hotly-tipped 17-year-old in the first weekend of the live shows, preferring to keep hold of Misha B, Janet Devlin and the now-departed Sophie Habibis. However, the singer now has the opportunity to return - alongside James Michael, 2 Shoes and Jonjo Kerr - by means of a public vote after Frankie Cocozza was axed on Tuesday. > Louis Walsh: 'Cocozza Golden Rule was being unprofessional'

> 'X Factor' Gary Barlow: 'We all played our part with Frankie' She said at today's press conference: "Kelly has always been there for me. Even though she knocked me out of the show, she did say to me after, 'I've still got your back and I will still mentor you. I (more)

Gary Barlow: 'None of us are guilt-free over Frankie Cocozza'
Gary Barlow has said that none of the X Factor panel can feel totally guilt-free over the exit of Frankie Cocozza from the show. The 18-year-old singer was axed from the competition on Tuesday amid claims that he had bragged about taking cocaine. Speaking at the London press conference to announce details of the phone vote to bring back Amelia Lily, Jonjo Kerr, 2 Shoes or James Michael, Barlow admitted some responsibility for Cocozza's antics. Barlow said: "I don't think any of us here are guilt-free with Frankie. I'm always on the phone I just hope he's okay. "I can't follow Frankie around all week. We've all encouraged Frankie to be bad... I do feel sorry. I don't feel good about it." He added that everyone who booed Cocozza on the live shows should also feel guilty about what has happened.

Who should be voted back into the X Factor?

With Frankie Cocozza now gone, the X Factor bosses have decided to bring back one of the first four acts to be eliminated

Frankie Cocozza's abrupt departure from the X Factor has left the show in an almighty pickle. Between that and Sunday's double elimination, there now aren't enough contestants left to get the show to Christmas. Handily, though, the X Factor bosses have schemed up an ingenious wheeze to get things back on an even keel.

No, they're not bringing Johnny back. No, they're not letting Ashford from Nu Vibe enter the finals for a third time. And, no, sadly they're not going to just wrap things up a week earlier than usual in a show of impressive human kindness. Instead, in what might rank as one of the worst reality twists in living memory, they're giving the first four acts a chance to return.

Oh, you remember. During
