Loverboy's "Lovin' Every Minute Of It" video -- who was the cover band?

Who was the cool, female-fronted, lounge-act cowpunk band covering "Workin' For the Weekend" in the Holiday Inn at the beginning of Loverboy's "Lovin' Every Minute Of It" video from 1985? Were they a real band, or just ringers hired for the part? I get the feeling they're meant to be mocked, being kind of low-key and feminine and camp compared to the ALPHA DOG CHEST HAIR ARRRR of Mike Reno and his Canadian AOR powerhouse, who will show us the light and the way and the beer, hoser. 1985, so much to answer for.

How do we collaborate on a video online?

A number of us want to collaborate on a web video. Basically, we'd love to find a site where each of us could record a short clip via web cam and someone could edit them all together. Nothing fancy, just a video like those super cuts of a character doing a signature phrase over and over again. Are there any sites that make this easy?

Dodging and burning effects in 1950s television?

Why do black-and-white shows from the 1960s, especially live ones, have what looks to be a burn (dark shadows) around bright objects (around Walt's signature and around people's heads) and dodging effects (white glowing) around dark objects (around the jet-black suit jackets of the announcer and dancers)? I originally thought it was some beleagured production assistant manually burning the What's My Line signatures so that they'd be more high-contrast and thus more readable, but now I'm seeing it everywhere!

Looking for specific website to create quick animated videos.

A month or two ago I saw a video someone had made of an exchange they had with a customer at work. The video had two cutesy CGI dog-like animals talking with very basic gestures and motions. It googled the watermark in the corner of the video and it took me to the site the guy had used to create the video. The name was four letters long but it wasn't a real word. There were multiple themes or scenes you could select, enter dialog, etc. Most of the themes were very cutesy- animals, flowers, etc. The speech seemed to be rendered by some typical voice-to-text software as it was very flat with no inflection. Overall it was a pretty easy to use website. [more inside]

Help me transcode video for my PS3

I've got home video in a number of formats that I'm trying to convert to play on my PS3. I have a Very Large NAS with integrated UPnP server (a version of Twonky), so I'm not looking for a new way to stream the data. I've got Handbrake 0.9.8 for OS X, which doesn't (appear to) have a preset for the PS3. I've dug around a little bit, but every set of settings I've found either results in data the PS3 won't read, or video that's more artifacted than I expected (common symptom - horizontal striping when things move). Anyone have a good set of parameters to transcode to something the PS3 can use?
