God is in the iPod. Or not.

So Sasha Frere Jones is convinced that God is speaking to him through his iPod. When he randomizes the playlist, the songs selected appear to form some message or have some meaning or something.

So I decided to randomize the songs on my iPod and pick the first 20 to see if there were any messages from the beyond.

I don't think so.

1) The Beachwood Sparks: Let it Run
2) Outkast: Tomb of the Boom
3) Jay-Z: December 4th
4) Mary Lou Lord: Martian Saints!
5) The Postal Service: The Disctict Sleeps Alone Tonight (DJ Downfall Rmx)
6) Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn: Shadow (Stae of Benegal Rmx)
7) Kiwi Dreams: Eye 2 Eye
8) Julee Cruise: Rockin' Back Inside My Heart
9) The Beat Band: Gone
10) Exhaust: A Medley of Late Night Buffet Commercials
11) David Bowie: Something In the Air
12) Wilco: Not For You (Alt. version)
13) Gordon Gano & Mary Lou Lord: Oh Wonder
14) The Beach Boys: Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulders) (String Overdubs)
15) David Bowie: A New Career In a New Town
16) Angelo Badalamenti: Starnight
17) Massive Attack: Hymn of the Big Wheel
18) Missy Elliot: I'm Really Hot
19) Serge Gainsbourg: Planteur Punch
20) Aimee Mann: Pavlov's Bell

God is not speaking through that selection.
