firstly, it is simple to merge 2 or 30 video tracks using transistions or
cross-disolves .. although using mechanical editing suites in the 1980s was not
as time-efficient as non-linear desktop editing
.. .. .. [is this what you mean?]

my understanding of scratch video isn't related to a fusion of turnatblism and
video editing - it is scratching the surface of mass-media imagery that is being
referred to - an example in the library here, a german scratch video splicing
ron reagan into a western - ron reagan calling troops to war - ron reagan
standing behind a podium, trees in background, another camera angle, trees turn
into ICBMs .. very agit-prop, eisenstein in 1989 .. ..

an aside: bill clinton is looking very old

another: mike patton will be a very interesting senior citizen
