Let's take some more spooky psychadelic ice flowers and play Conarium.

here's a recording of big ol' lecture I wrote & delivered for BMOLab and Vector Institute last month, entitled "Language Models and Poetics," in which I claim that computers not only *can* generate poetry, but in fact they can *only* generate poetry.

the discussion touches on GPT-n (of course), speech act theory, William Carlos Williams' _Spring and All_, Frank Lantz (twice), and more 🎶

(the audio didn't come out great, happy to supply text/slides to interested folks)

Death 

I think this is the first time I've been a mutual with someone who died.

We have a few people interested in taking up radtown's server... to be clear: I don't plan on shutting anything down until the end of the year, even if no one takes over.

The answer is I had surgery then COVID happened and I haven't been able to get my hair fixed in a year.

Me, stoned and looking at old pictures: holy shit I was hot what happened

Sex...? 

I once hooked up with a dude who was at CalTech and he lectured me about transgender stuff.

There's no timeline on this, I'd say probably by the end of the year unless someone wants to take over.

Show thread

@_ Nah. I won't shut it down all of a sudden, but if nobody wants to take over, it'll probably let it slowly shut down.

I dunno when but I don't really have the energy to keep things going. Or if someone wants to take over, that could happen, too.

Show thread

I'm thinking I should start sunsetting radtown.

Looking forward to the day when we can finally send Elon Musk to Mars.

drugs :ffxiv: 

Me, slightly stoned: that minion is adorable i wonder what it is

...

oh that's an actual lalafel player

Mildly lewd selfie 

Hello I felt like putting on makeup

We need the return of ska (and don't tell me it never went anywhere, you know what I mean).

Also this is the perfect way to do a remake, for like, a lot of games.

Show thread

I feel awful BUT I got a few more park goals in THPS.
