Thursday top 5 + bonus 5

I didn't have time to post a Top 5 last week, so here's a double dose.

Statetris
Because games should be educayshonal.

The Black Sabbath Show
I think every 1970s metal act should've had a cartoon.

Desktops for true web dev geeks
If you don't know what a div tag is, you're not going to get these at all.

Fart in the duck
Oh, those wacky Dutch.

Robots playing Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy"
"LEV the thereminbot and his newly-built pal thumpbot play "Crazy" with help from a 20-year-old MT32 synthesizer. OK, Lev's a bit out of tune, but hey, ROBOTS..."

"Assassinz"
New funny stuff from the Duncan Bros.

"BBS: The Documentary"
Anybody remember dialing up to BBSes before the Web? I guess everybody needs a hobby: Some guy spent four years filming a documentary about BBSes.

"Planet Earth"
This is a spectacular series from the BBC. I will second my friend Olya's recommendation too: Get the BBC version featuring David Atetnborough as narrator, not the Discovery Channel version featuring Sigourney Weaver. I mean, I like Sigourney and all, but she ain't no Attenborough. It's available in HD btw.

A flickr group for Robert Heinlein fans
Okay, so I'm a dork, but I started a group on flickr.

The Green
I wish I had cable so I could watch programming like this. In a poll ten years ago, almost 80% of Americans said they'd call themselves environmentalists. Yet most people do very little to make the environment better or raise awareness. Programming like this makes me optimistic.
