Who knew biology and LCD Soundsystem would be a good combination?

Proving that Cal is the best at everything of obvious importance, Mark Grabiner, a molecular and cell biology graduate student at Cal, won BioTechniques Journal’s [1] 2012 “Science Parody of the Year Award [2]” for his music video entitled “Grad School, I Love You (But You’re Bringing Me Down).” A Parody of LCD Soundsystem’s “New York, I Love You (But You’re Bringing Me Down) [3]”, Grabiner speaks for even undergraduate students when he croons “And so … take me off your mailing list, for jobs you think will still exist by the time that my degree is through,” emphasized with the devastated expressions of Muppets character, Beaker [4]. You may be asking, “Why would an academic journal have such a random contest?” In all honesty, we have no idea, but we welcome any publicity for good YouTube videos that will make us all experts in the art of procrastination.

Be sure to also check out Grabiner’s parody of Cake’s “Short Skirt/Long Jacket [5]” entitled “Bright Scope/Long Lab Coat [6].”
