Today’s video is 'The Mesopotamians' by They Might Be Giants. It combines Ancient History and Pop with a charcoal animation style; points everywhere for everyone involved. It's the latest video (the fourth) from TMBG's latest album 'The Else' which feels like an odd follow-up to 'The Spine,' probably due to the professional polish given to it by the Dust Brothers. I've learnt to love it, and you will too, if you know what's good for you.
