“Sopranos” fans: watch it twice to see if you can find any major plot points that it leaves out.
And it also expresses opinions, makes jokes and is a work of art unto itself!
Mr. Guylias tells me that these seven minutes took 100 hours to make. Note that that time’s in hours. These guys — who are not even 25 yet — had to be reminded to eat.
Matt Weiner, one of the executive producers of “The Sopranos,” says that Mr. Guylias and Mr. Sabia might be the only two viewers to ever really understand the complexities of Billy Leotardo. Not to mention the whole series!
But: What does David Chase, the volatile creator of “The Sopranos,” think of the hacked-up, cut-down version of his masterpiece?
Usually Mr. Chase likes a little more … breathing space … in his television. Will he consider “The Seven-Minute Sopranos” heresy? Stay tuned.

I have noticed that when I watch these attempting to follow the lines, I get the odd feeling of time dilation, like its been 20 minutes or more when its only about 9. Usually I have to smoke pot to get the same sensation
PS. I also love how they keep rerunning the same segment each time Carmela kicks Tony out of the house (may as well). Other recurring themes like the panic attacks are even funnier in the compressed version.

[Blunderov] This is one of the less realised medical uses of marijuana; it helps to counteract the speeding up of the universe.
Everybody I talk to reports that they feel as if time is going by faster and faster. IMV this is not a subjective phenomenon. It seems logical that an expanding universe composed, as it is, of space/time would have less and less time to spread around the more the space bit of it expands. Ex nihil nihil fit. If the universe was shrinking the opposite would be true; eveything would move more and more slowly.
Trouble is there is no way to prove it empirically because everything speeds up at the same time. Clocks go a little bit faster. Electrons circle a little faster, as do vultures. And so on. I suppose eventually there will be insufficient time left for the universe to expand anymore and it will then phase transition into a state of perfect slack.
