What to do? What to do?

with all the recent upheaval and confusion in life, I thought I should figure out what's going on. So I was gonna consult a psychic, but hey, I'm cheap. Luckily, I just got my new iPod, so I figure I'll consult that instead. So, understanding that the iPod is the font of all wisdom, it's time for iPod Diviniation again.

Basically, instead of using Tarot cards, which, after all are limited to 78 options, you put the iPod on shuffle, giving you, in my case, 1673 options. Each song represents a card, placed in the following position (I use the Cross)

· The Covering: The important events, issues, attitudes or influences around the question or current situation

· The Crossing: Current obstacles, problems, conflicts and opposition that the questioner must deal with

· The Crown: The best that can be achieved or attained from current circumstances

· The Root: Past events or influences that have played an important part in bringing about the current situation

· The Past: Events or influences from the more recent past that have influenced the present but are now passing away

· The Future: Future events and fresh influences about to come into play that will operate in the near future

· The Questioner: The questioner's attitude and how they relate to the current situation

· The House: How other people around the questioner affect and view matters in hand

· The Inside: The questioner's hopes, fears and expectations with regard to the question or the current situation

· The Outcome: The eventual outcome of events shown by the other cards

And here they are:

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass: This Guy’s in Love with you um, I'll take this to mean I'm the guy...

Ryan Adams: World War 24 hmm, must be fall coming, Ryan’s good rainy day music, getting lost in something and wanting it to move forward, sounds familiar.

Tony Rice: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald this is the best I can expect? The best and brightest going down in a storm? That’s bitter.

Steve Earle: Jerusalem conflict and senseless bickering. That’s the past?

Crosby Stills Nash and Young: Teach Your Children Well I really think this should have been switched with the Root, I must say.

Nick Gilder: Hot Child in the City well, I got nothing, I guess, except it bodes well for Kickball tonight!

Garbage: #1 Crush hmm, angry love songs, I’m sensing a trend here…

Everclear: Video Killed the Radio Star the new eclipses the old, and yet we are sympathetic and sentimental about the old…hmm (plus, this is one of my all time favourite songs…

Phish: Piper long, complicated Jam-noodle song. Clearly, this is helpful, isn’t it?

Travis: Quicksand Oh, this is cheerful and optimistic, ain’t it?

So, all's clear now, right?

Great work on your blog - it was very enlightening. You've got a lot of useful info on there about tarot cards so I've bookmarked your site so I don't lose it. I'm doing a lot of research on tarot cards exposed and have just started a new blog - I'd really appreciate your comments
