    I can't believe Disney got all those game companies to sign off on their characters. Wow, definitely seeing that.

    For something like this most game devs I know would happily sign off. There are some hi-res stills out there that show even more great cameos.

    (The zombie is from 'House of the Dead', now that's obscure...)

    Jane Lynch is Samus?

    I am okay with that.

    @Argos, kid's got potential for sure. Castrati like that are pretty uncommon. I'd LOVE to see what could happen with some proper instruction. He could get some real breath support under those notes.

    He... he sounds great, really. I'll be honest, though, I was kinda hoping he'd start belting out some Maiden.

    Ach, good for him, though.

    I don't mean to sound snarky, because good on the kid for being talented, etc...

    But I bet the producers of that show are jerking off & spraying champagne on each other now that they've found American Susan Boyle.

    @tedcroland, they're sadly mistaken. This kid has potential, but... For what he's trying to do right now? It's really just potential. If he keeps singing shit like he's singing without proper technique, he'll just damage his pipes.

    I haven't seen the video yet, is that kid a real castrati?

    @agentarsenic given his speaking voice it's highly unlikely. Contra-tenor would be a better term for him.

    Like it says in the video, this had my curiosity, and now it has my attention:

    Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained

    @AgentArsenic, arcaner is right. There aren't any real castrati these days. Counter-tenor/contra-tenor (whatever you want to call it) is a better term.

    yeah, not actual castrati, he just sings like one :P His speaking voice is normal. Agreed with @dork that without proper training he'll likely damage his vocal chords, but I also think it's possible, now that he's seen what kind of reaction his singing can get, that he might pursue actual training. At least I hope.

    @ argos - tv gold right there. boy, what a tear jerker. and i agree w/ dorkmuffin about him needing to get training. otherwise all that talent will be blown in a few years. good for the kid, though, if this story is true.

    in other news: internet, oh, internet.

    a confession of love (of sorts).

    Some people need harder difficulty levels.
