A female astronaut living aboard ISS and a semi-retired British folk-rockstar (travelling in Russia at the time) perform a flute duet in honour of the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight. NASA then posts a video of the event on YouTube.
A surprisingly nice Christmas song from Australian genius Tim Minchin:
He does get a few classic Minchin digs in (“the lyrics are dodgy” is a personal favourite) but it’s mostly a very nice song about family, holidays and such. The real meaning of the upcoming Solstice holiday, in whatever version most of us celebrate it, in other words.
Quite a change from my first introduction to Minchin, which was the F-bomb-laced, glorious and awesome “Pope Song”…
Anyone offended by the Pope Song hasn’t actually listened to the lyrics.
