Hey Masto-folks,

Since the Musk Twitter announcement I got a couple of notifications of new followers on this account, which had been dormant since 2019. This served as a nice reminder that the federated world exists, and I'm going to get back to posting on here more.

Visual poetry derived from declarative statements contained in questions in the COGIATI (Combined Gender Identity and Transsexuality Inventory) self-test.

Few days later sharing this: here's my entry, "IS_IT_LOVE":

Usually when I generate text, I'm creating what I consider poetry -- I manually cull from much smaller amounts of material. No go when you have to hit a 50,000-word limit. So there's some interesting stuff in here and lots of garbage.

The best mistake: a loop count error causes the frequency of one sentence-ending clause to increase until it's the only one left.

WIP: cheap laugh riot gear, 10/26/18.

initialized in p5js by translating each word rendered in a particular font (Roboto, I think) to points, distorting the points' placements, tracing them, & placing the words randomly on the canvas. The randomness of the placement was a little too aggressive. This is 5 of the 100+ iterations mashed together in GIMP

Saying he was collecting material for an art project, the 31-year-old visual artist sneaked into a vault at a notorious private, run-for-profit university and quietly removed tuition contracts. Fried Potatoes – whose real name is Francisco Tapia – then burned the documents, rendering it nearly impossible for the Universidad del Mar to call in its debt – which he claimed was worth as much as $500m (£297m). “It’s over. You are all free of debt.”

Some music for a change:

the soundtrack work I did for "The Endodontist," a 1983 low-budget Italian horror film that was thought lost until recently, when I made it up.
