@enkiv2 a neural network that watches TV for you and then tries to tell you about what it watched
Sounds like a robotic grandpa
Calling it now: Hyperloop is the Glomar Explorer of the 2010s.
<<Saudi Arabia has cancelled its plan to pretend it's planning on building a hyperloop, in a major blow to Richard Branson's company that pretends to build hyperloops >>>

can I please get a tech reporter to look at this list and write a performatively resigned article about how ray kurzweil is putting honest hardworking romcom writers out of a job. "When HAL met Sally," look I already wrote the headline for you.
remake of _You've Got Mail_ except the Joe Fox character is a computer programmer making a program to generate romantic comedy scripts in bulk and the Kathleen Kelly character writes romcoms in the traditional intention-typical way, and also they're both trans women who communicate anonymously mainly through an increasingly arcane system of masto alts, also it's probably set in bushwick instead of the upper west side

bot to replace the last sentence of every plot summary with this phrase; every narrative becomes a soviet frustration; "Vader leads a squadron of TIE fighters and prepares to attack Luke's X-wing fighter, but Han returns and fires at the Imperials, sending Vader spiraling away. Guided by Obi-Wan's spirit, Luke uses the Force to destroy the Death Star seconds before it can fire on the Rebel base.

I was (and remain) the primary administrator of several communities there: one for fans of Robert Anton Wilson, one for fans of Tim Leary, & one for fans of Terence McKenna.
"Sierra Young is a successful, attractive 30-year-old woman. Amy decides to visit her family. While setting a wedding ring with their names engraved on the ski slopes and all ends well."
"Chicago socialite Cynthia Drexel arranges for New York City who is living in the woodland and in their 30s. Andrew blames Heidee for what they get. Carried away by the spirit of the film shows Craig moving out of his safe, secure life."
three separate markov chains trained on wikipedia plot summaries: (1) only first lines; (2) only middle lines (not first or last); (3) only last lines. generating stories composed of one sentence from 1, 2, and 3 respectively:
"Bill Dancer and his efforts to win back his wife, particularly her attraction to golf. MaryAnn and Darrin are last seen fleeing from the divorce papers, resigns from his sick-bed. When they arrive back to the courthouse, where husband and wife are happily reunited."
