Breaking Bad and Black Sabbath — The creator of Breaking Bad explains how his feel-bad television series (about a meth-dealing high school teacher with cancer) can inspire so much love from audiences and critics. The pioneering indie rocker John Darnielle, of the Mountain Goats, reveals his soft spot for Black Sabbath. And we visit The Clock, a mash-up film comprising more than a thousand clips about time. It’s 24 hours long, and we wouldn’t cut a minute.
