This is a fairly nifty song by a band I’d never heard of called Eskmo, and a truly epic video. But I can’t help but wonder if in a few years or decades it will look as cheesy as Yes’ “Leave It” (below) now looks — sort of “hey, we’ve got this new video editing console, let’s see what this button does! Now this one! Ooh, look at this one!” (via Waxy)

So, the first private payload has been delivered into space, and it was a wheel of cheese, apparently in honor of Monty Python, whose “Cheese Shop” sketch is one of the all-time classics.
I’m a huge Python fan, so I like this (and I really like the payload label’s tribute to “Top Secret,” a criminally underrated and underappreciated ZAZ movie), but I have 2 big questions:
1) What’s with sending a wheel of Le Brouere, one of the very, very few cheeses in the entire world that isn’t actually mentioned in the sketch?
2) Why not send a parrot?
