When I used XMMS, I had a script that I wrote to scroll a bigtext display of the current song. I had it running on a transparent eterm with no border and permanently on the bottom of my window stack. It looks like the words just scroll up my desktop.
Now I use otto, so that Steph can pick musing from her machine, too.
I altered the script so that it now reads what otto is playing instead.
The script is below - you need python and figlet to use it.
for l in otto.readlines():
if got_title==False and l.find("queue-song")!=-1:
if got_artist==False and l.find("queue-artist")!=-1:
figletw,figletr=os.popen2("figlet -c -t")
for l in figletr.readlines():
