I am a former artificial intelligence philosopher. As much as academia is for me a PhD was not. These days I am using my past experience in poetry and AI writing to create concrete poetry.
You can see all of my/the computer's work at http://exampleurl.xyz -
The "quarterly reports" are PDFs of every concrete poem of mine posted online in the three months stated.
I post concrete poems on Masto (and birdsite) every Thursday using the hashtag #concretepoetry in the fediverse.
nirvana (specifically Kurt Cobain)
Nirvana probably had a greater affect on me than any other band. But now, thirty years later, I can say that the greatest thing Kurt Cobain did (and is greater than 99.999% of what humanity has accomplished) is his expression change from his "friend of the guy who is threatening you" look after singing the line "Nature is a whore" to his "Hello I am happy to sell you a waterbed today" look after singing "bruises on the fruit" in the "In Bloom" video.
I forgot I was in the card catalog.
Can someone tell me WTF is going on with Ralph Middlebrooks' trumpet? I have never, *ever* seen a trumpet like that before.

I tricked a computer into thinking it is making art when it is actually making poetry.
