A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

Check this video out from Youtube! (You can play the video below using the controls under it, but for a bigger version of the video click this. To get to the Youtube page, with reader comments etc, click on the pic itself.)

What an amazing rendition of the famous (and famously difficult) soprano coloratura aria from Mozart's opera The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) - the Queen of the Night aria (Der Holle Rache Kocht In Meinen Herzen).

According to a comment on that page, the lad was only 13 when he sang that in mid-2005, too.

By the way if you want to show the video on your own blog, the code given by Youtube doesn't work, at least on Blogger - you need to use this code instead, just copy and paste it where you want the video to appear (I used a div to center mine but I haven't included it below):
<object height="350" width="425"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/fBXf9rdyJKM"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/fBXf9rdyJKM" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="350" width="425" autoplay="false" controller="true" ></embed></object>
