With the momentous series finale of Breaking Bad just hours away, fans of the show are hungry for something, anything to wile away the time before the epic conclusion tonight. So why not kick back and chew the fat with your fellow MeFites with the help of a little tool I like to call "The Periodic Table of Breaking Bad." [more inside]

We've all seen variations on the personal time-lapse video -- a snapshot every day for six years
, or a look at a young girl's first decade
. But nobody's done it quite like Sam Klemke
. For thirty-five years the itinerant freelance cartoonist
has documented his life in short year-end reviews, a funny, weary, eccentric, and hopeful record dating all the way back to 1977. Recently optioned for documentary treatment
by the government of Australia
, you can skim Sam's opus in reverse in the striking video "35 Years Backwards Thru Time with Sam Klemke,"
an ever-evolving home movie montage that grows grainier and grainier as it tracks Sam "from a paunchy middle aged white bearded self deprecating schluby old fart, to a svelt, full haired, clean shaven, self-important but clueless 20 year old."

weaves together a sequence of motion in realtime, using fragments of archival footages that are being collected daily. When a human figure appears on the screen, the sound is deliberately distorted into a slow 'wan wan.' This project, with a theme linking to classification and dependency, shall continue to be developed for a very long time. (Footages featured on this website belong to the public domain. Clips were downloaded from http://www.archive.org/).

The visual interplay of helicopters and fan blades in the opening scene
of Apocalypse Now.
The idiot-future soundscapes
The concept for the baptism montage
in The Godfather.
The actual cut of the "Director's Cut" of Touch of Evil.
The man responsible for all of these is Walter Murch,
one of the greatest film and sound editors of all time. More Inside.

can be described as follows: "Nick Spark is a California-based photographer who specializes in montage or composite photography. This is a technique in which dozens, if not hundreds, of photos are seamlessly pasted together to create a unified image. The result is a balanced, yet highly detailed view of reality... albeit slightly enhanced."
