Presentation movie clips

There are movies associated with the Animal Parables and Salt Solution here, but also a few odds and ends that I have come up with over the years. It builds into a strange collection of some useful, reusable clips and some curiosities.

The Mervyn Sprocket movie of Something MissingSomething’s not right in the world. Ever get that feeling? I feel that way too. With retro 80s-style video and a lyric that rolls on and on over the horizon this is a list of similes that grasped what that wrongness feels like. The ‘Something Missing‘ video is released as Mervyn Sprocket.
