The band The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets is inviting marine biologists to be in their new music video for a song about -- yes, of course, marine biology. You can catch the linkurl:song; here, a ditty they call "A Marine Biologist" -- "a fun little number about bathyscaphes, benthic trawlers, giant squid, etc, " according to the band. The band's plan is to film marine biologists at work, adding text at the bottom of the screen describing what they are working on. They don't even need to shoot the film themselves -- any footage that depicts marine experts at work will suit their purposes. Interested in showing your stuff to the next generation? If so, you can Email the group at or mail/call them at: Toren Atkinson, 302-1015 West 13th Ave, Vancouver BC Canada, V6H 1N1 (1-604-737-4283).
