I was sitting in class today and thought of an amazing t-shirt for science dorks. (Looks like I’m becoming not only a music geek, but also a science nerd. Great combo on OKCupid I hear).

envision the shape of a t-shirt around these words:

SEX CELLS

And then maybe some sort of picture of gametes of the haploid persuasion. (insert uproarious laughter)
Ok…this will all make sense once you’ve watched the video below.
But first!

Things you need to know before you watch this:
1) This music video was directed and edited by my friends, Cooper Roberts and Ian Schwartz. Very proud of all their work, so spread this video and their names!
2) This music video’s “bedroom scene” was shot in my very own bedroom (it was a hot summer day at the time with no AC). Those are my pillows. Some of the props are my father’s.
3) This music video is unlike others–it’s a story, it signifies something, it’s peculiar but captured in a very beautiful way. The video’s imagery pulls at the sinews of the music. It’s not fast paced but rather like pulling taffy on a hot day, which is very much in the style of Mike Noyce’s celestial vocals and instrumentation.
4) This music video is anatomically stimulating. I’m studying anatomy right now, so if I go a little crazy with anatomy puns, bear with me.
