“Stealing, of course, is a crime, and a very impolite thing to do. But like most impolite things, it is excusable under certain circumstances. Stealing is not excusable if, for instance, you are in a museum and you decide that a certain painting would look better in your house, and you simply grab the painting and take it there. But if you were very, very hungry, and you had no way of obtaining money, it would be excusable to grab the painting, take it to your house, and eat it.” - Lemony Snickett, The Wide Window

I have gotten MF DOOM lyrics stuck in my head literally every single day since 2003, but now when it happens there is a tinge of sadness :(((

Like whenever I hear a word that is also in a DOOM lyric, my brain free associates over there. I do not associate "All Star" with Smash Mouth, I associate it with "And while he's runnin down to All-Star Weekend to ball / I'm comin with the U-Haul"

I'm rapping the words to "My Philosophy" by Boogie Down Productions to the tune of and in the voice of "Polyamorous" by Chris Fleming???

Computer-generated literature 

In Brazil's main newspaper, Folha de S.Paulo, I argue that microblogging itself and National Novel Generation Month as initiated by @darius are more important to computer-generated literature than particular technologies like GPT-2 and -3 https://www1.folha.uol.com.br/ilustrada/2021/01/robos-ja-escrevem-de-poemas-e-microcontos-no-twitter-a-romances-inteiros.shtml

TIL There's a bot that toots clinical trials when they're "suspended, terminated or withdrawn". Might be a good research tool on its own to see certain trends

This is where I ended up with my pierced creamware study last night, planning to revisit it the next time I need a palette cleanser.
