iPod iChing - Reality Bites

It is friday, and it is time.
Oh Mighty and Wise iPod at this time of year we bring to you the Greatest Questions of Highest Import.
So, iPod, can we sustain the growth of Reality Television, or will it all fail?

Woosh goes the randomizer. Woosh...

  • The Covering: Allegro - Bach

  • The Crossing: Finland - Monty Python

  • The Crown: Kings of the Wild Frontier - Adam and the Ants

  • The Root: Sweet Dreams - Lightning Seeds

  • The Past: A New England - Billy Bragg

  • The Future: Börnin við Tjörnina - Björk

  • The Questioner: Extraordinary Girl - Green Day

  • The House: La Primavera - Vivaldi

  • The Inside: How Beautiful You Are - Cure

  • The Outcome: Wages of Sin - Damine Jurado

#11 is Coming Up - Cornershop and #12 is Tamina wollen wir nicht speisen - Mozart.

Well, my, that speaks for itself.
The Future is "Children at the Pond", a very interesting song about children going to The Pond (a duck pond in the centre of Reykjavík) to feed the ducks. A very popular activity.

The Question was suggested by my better half, by the way. The Questioner is spot on. Spooky.

As always, the Key as explained by Sean

So, All Reality TV All the Way, Indefinitely.

Tamino, wollen wir nicht speisen

this is a line of dialog in Act 2 of Zauberflöte
If I remember, the birdcatcher Papageno is talking to
the prince Tamino. It comes right before the desolate despairing aria #17 sung by Pamina (whose prospects for happiness look so dim about that time that she considers suicide)

To someone trying to interpret the I (pod) Ching, the name you give to this aria of Pamina is not adequately evocative, unless they remember the opera very well. the line of dialog is an obscure clue.

Thank you for the elaboration.
It was late at night and it was off the regular list of 10 so I figured anyone who cared would figure it out.
More than I knew. That is the joy of the Net.
