Tutorials , Video Streaming
Lynda.com is my absolute favorite place for learning new professional skills. I had been a web designer for years, but I started using Lynda.com when I wanted to learn iOS development. I had an app on the App Store less than a month later!

The library of tutorials is incredibly large and comprehensive, and each course is organized very well into lessons and videos within those that often just run a minute or two each. You can watch them straight through as a continuous movie, or focus on a single video for a while to really figure out what they're saying. The courses also often come with supporting materials, so you can pick apart the examples they give, and the teachers are always very well-spoken and clear.

I cannot recommend Lynda.com highly enough, both as a tool and as a website itself!
One of my favorite things in the world is watching talented people show off what they do best, and Epic Rap Battles of History is a great example of that. The first few episodes had a fairly homemade look, but since then they've become incredibly high-quality productions. The costumes are top-notch, the music is great, and the writing is quick and smart and razor-sharp. The two showrunners usually star, but the occasional guest stars are also a treat, whenever they appear.

The website is exactly what you'd want from an ERB site: episodes and behind-the-scenes content laid out intuitively and elegantly, with plenty of options but without becoming overwhelming at any point. The content is definitely the focus here, but it's presented very nicely.

Webcomics , Comedy
The sheer effort and detail this guy pours into his webcomic is incredible. He does SO MUCH research, and puts SO MUCH thought into his bigger efforts, that you can literally spend hours diving into them.

And in between, he's just got hilarious ideas and great writing. What's not to love?

Take the body of Burt Reynolds, the voice of Betty Boop, the mindset of Batman, the soul of Dick Cheney, the career of Betty White, and the pine-fresh scent of Pine-Sol, and what do you have?

A monstrosity, that's what.

But Kris Carr is pretty cool.

Video Streaming , Film & Television
Netflix is my go-to video streaming service, both on my computer and on my AppleTV's. I also use their DVD-by-Mail system, which has a much, much larger selection of content. The website is laid out well, and their recommendation algorithm, for finding videos you might like based on your previous ratings, is incredibly accurate.

The website has imperfect integration of the Streaming and DVD halves of its business, and sometimes it can be a pain to get information about a movie or TV show without starting the stream accidentally, but otherwise it's a very good example of what you'd want from a movie/TV streaming site: lots of content that's easily accessible.

If they had more available for streaming, and if the streaming library stopping shifting around based on contracts with the studios, this site would be just about perfect.

Clothing , Fine Art
This website has a great premise, and the content is almost always top-notch. The t-shirts themselves are very high quality, and the art is always fantastic. Highly recommended, but remember: you have to check each day, because the sales only last 24 hours before the next deal starts!

Web Hosting , Technology
I've been using Site5 since 2007, and I couldn't be happier. Their prices are very fair (especially when you consider that you can host multiple websites on the same plan), and their customer service is fast and reliable. The dashboard controls are a little daunting, but once you get the hang of them they're great.

Overall, highly recommended.

Revolutions

This history podcast is the work of Mike Duncan, who wrote and narrated the epic 'History of Rome' podcast.

So far he has covered the English (very good), American (excellent) and French (very good) revolutions. All in lots of detail, from the 'seeds of change' that led up to th...

The History of Byzantium

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
