Video Of The Day: If Saul Bass Did Star Wars

This is cool. Saul Bass was an Oscar-winning graphic artist and creator of many memorable animated opening credits sequences for movies like North By Northwest, The Man With The Golden Arm, Spartacus, Psycho, and more. This is how he might have done Star Wars.

Video Of The Day: Stand By Your Ham

From long-time LOTD regular Elizabeth in CA, a frighteningly bad "singing" performance by pig farmers in the UK, trying to get more money from the government.

Here's the story.

And the video. Brace yourself. Actually, on second thought, it's no worse than early rounds of "American Idol."

Bad Band Photos

And these are just the photos. Imagine the godawful music these cornholes make. Most of the photos from RockAndRollConfidential.com.


"Two in the pink and one in... no, wait... one in the stink and three in the... uh... shit.. "
"I will give you 18 American dollars to kill me."
"My pants itch."


Which one is Spinderfella?


Fact: There have been no successful brother and sister acts since The Carpenters.


"Wait. I thought you had the key."


Sha-Na-No


Fifty bucks says these guys play Emo


"Boyz II Your Rooms.. NOW!"


"How come the studio makes us use the back entrance when all the other bands get to go in the front?"


This band's name is Diskreetse Mango Trio. They are Danes, so we'll cut them some slack on the whole numbers thing.


Smell this. It's our new record.


Featuring Darryl "The Captain" Dragon on keyboards and Ann B. Davis on vocals


There are at least two guys in this photo receiving a "five feeler"


Sadly, Roger did not notice that Deandra was about to hork until it was too late. He can get another perm, but the pleather jacket is a goner

News Story Of The Day: More Sex For Helpful Hubbys?

Die, David Crary.

Men who do housework may get more sex
By DAVID CRARY, AP National Writer

American men still don't pull their weight when it comes to housework and child care, but they're not the slackers they used to be.

The average dad has gradually been getting better about picking himself up off the sofa and pitching in, according to a new report which suggests the payoff for doing more chores could be more sex.

The report, released Thursday by the Council on Contemporary Families, summarizes that men's contribution to housework had doubled over the past four decades; another found they tripled the time spent on child care over that span.

"More couples are sharing family tasks than ever before, and the movement toward sharing has been especially significant for full-time dual-earner couples," the report says.

Joshua Coleman, a San Francisco-area psychologist and author of The Lazy Husband: How to Get Men to Do More Parenting and Housework, said equitable sharing of housework can lead to a happier marriage and more frequent sex.

"If a guy does housework, it looks to the woman like he really cares about her — he's not treating her like a servant," said Coleman, who is affiliated with the Council on Contemporary Families.

"And if a woman feels stressed out because the house is a mess and the guy's sitting on the couch while she's vacuuming, that's not going to put her in the mood."
