some people voices seem impossible
 
Today was the first of the two competitions that I participated in at this year’s International Eisteddfod in Llangollen.  The music festival has taken place every summer since 1947 and gathers entrants from all over the world to take part in a variety of traditional dance, choral and solo voice competitions.

This morning was the vocal solo over 18′s category and I was on first thing. I took to the stage about 9;15 am and the competition ran until about 12:00 noon.

The two songs that I performed were “Scotsong” by James MacMillan which is a beautiful contemporary song and “Quando M’en Vo” which is Musetta’s aria from the opera La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini. I think this is a cheeky little number which she directs at Marcello, in front of her bohemian friends, in order to make him feel jealous.

Unfortunately I did not get through to the final where they film the contestants so instead I thought I would share the recording of “Quando M’en Vo” from my recent recital in Rochdale accompanied by the Russell Lomas.

My husband made we watch this the day after it aired, he was confused by it...I thought it look like speed skating...
 
This video by +Future Islands is insane.  The passion and the dancing is so un-self-conscious...  It's awesome, or it's a trainwreck - but you can't unsee it.  But at the end of the day, the song is awesome.

Thanks to +Marc Ruxin for bringing to my attention.

Also, per Marc - "Marlon Brando meets Fine Young Cannibals."  Exactly.

Warning: this is a horrible story. 234 young women were abducted from a physics test in Nigeria, specifically to keep them from getting an education. Nothing is being done to find them. Collective public outrage is the only tool that can possibly get a search started.

I imagine that most of you reading this are already aware of how much the cable monopolies are threatening #netneutrality , but for anyone who isn't, this clip from John Oliver lays out perfectly what's at stake, and why we're even talking about this right now.
