iPod Predicts End of World; Plays REM

I just found an entry on WikiHOW that explains an interesting way to use your iPod as a Tarot card deck. By making a playlist of 78 songs, renaming them as the cards, and (if you have iPod video or nano) putting the cards as the pictures on the songs. I normally might not be that interested in this, but, one of the things that really sticks out is that you use songs that correlate to the cards’ meanings. For example, if there’s some song that spells disaster or something, you could use REM’s “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine).”

Tarot’s not exactly my cup of tea, but this is a cool little iPod hack that could spawn some similar uses in the future for me, though I can’t figure out what yet. Has anyone seen any other stuff you can do like this?

  1. This is a cool, but really weird idea. I might have to try it sometime.
