You have a way better vocabulary and style than I, so I switched to training trackAI:
yesterday do a last is for large red a good
i am thankful thinking of side what
dont do you want as research
i may set to it so are there
yesterday indeed before a i guess
im at earth so then
i may say your cool festival
im i am only right
today here if you ever
i may say out on the coronavirus
dont forget it a great
today sent about run will
dont take this spring i am not part
i may work with a moment
dont it so naughty where
I think it needs more time...
I like it - but if it's going to generate like me, then it needs images and music!

Maybe try pulling in select thread titles from all forums and have it make a poem with them.

We did that once manually and it was very good.

i switched to the countryside
tomorrow another stands in the feet
that and ho up down at the feet
today and also relevant to norway
that to reap what
we we sow seemingly
i visited on my sister has seen bears
i did not know
that and no hatred here
today and also dampened
yesterday do i am thankful
that and i are just relaxing
so to and ho up down to and she is now working
you his own individual person life
yesterday do you have

That's at very high accuracy on the validation set (I used all the tricks to fix the word repetitions, but it still does it :-/).
I think it will be more fun if I train CollectorAI :-) No change for high accuracy ;-)

haha - very good poem. And repetition is fine. In fact, I made this silly little poem yesterday evening, with a chorus.

Sent to my sister and we had a good laugh. : )

Kayak Song

I bought a kayak
and a paddle too

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you

it’s green and black
and teal and blue

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you


Heading for ACK
that’s Nantucket (true)

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you


gonna float on my back
in the morning dew

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you


It rides on car rack
you can keep your canoe

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you


will I ever come back?
When there’s something new!

tippy me, tippy you
tippy me, tippy you


**

To really do my Wilmott corpus justice though - you need to pull all of the posts in.

That would keep you busy for a while! : D

Off to the bright sunshine now - but a comment on Louise Gluck's award on the International Poems thread later on maybe.

Hehe - "With friends like you guys, who needs enemies?" : D

But seriously, my favorite post today is bearish on the Debating Fly on the Trump thread.

You do realize that a fly (in general) is associated with Beelzebub.

It's often represented on the Devil card in Tarot. This I know from some of my decks.

Have a nice day and I recommend setting some stuff on fire if you are bored and restless.

You can say what you want but Trump does not cuss on the lawn.

what a potty mouth on the First Lady though.  And about Christmas too. : Q

Anyway, here is to pagan seasonal celebrations.

OK, don't know the people, but that's exactly what we want for their artificial versions :-)

BTW, I thought about tracking the forum sentiment since the start... do you think it's interesting? We could look for correlations with some real-world events - if we anti-correlate, we are anti-social psychopaths, etc.

you know farmer, but Nonius was before your time here.  And tread lightly there as it is complicated Forum history, but the creative work he did was very good (short stories - could have become a mini-novel).

Sure, sentiment analysis could be interesting. Obviously the really large impact event externally was the GFC 2007-2009 give or take and of course Covid now.

So we had a wide diversity of posters for a few years during that transitional period - and ebbs and flows since then.

Enjoy day, take care, and listen to the sentiments of your environment! : )

City people.

Appalling behavior towards an animal that was just looking for an evening snack and a quick "Hi Mom" on camera.

Shame on you, Joe.

Some day, I will post an equation in LaTeX just to prove that I can (haha), but today we will look at the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Here is a sample poem by Louise Gluck - 

All Hallows

Even now this landscape is assembling.
The hills darken. The oxen
sleep in their blue yoke,
the fields having been
picked clean, the sheaves
bound evenly and piled at the roadside
among cinquefoil, as the toothed moon rises:

This is the barrenness
of harvest or pestilence.
And the wife leaning out the window
with her hand extended, as in payment,
and the seeds
distinct, gold, calling
Come here
Come here, little one

And the soul creeps out of the tree.

**

It's quite good, I think, short, evocative, outside the self.

Some modern poets, especially American poets, go very deep into the self narrative and although you can draw universals out of that, I do find it a bit confining in a poetic form.

Some of my favorite poets (who take a very different approach) are T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, John Ashbury, and Ezra Pound.  The first three create beautiful work - incantations, mythology, poems like paintings, and Ezra is there for the vast output from a real madman. Like Finnegan's Wake, you can really use a few dictionaries and skeleton keys to his work. And even then, some of it is just raving.

For other epic poets like that - Walt Whitman - who, in a funny moment at a sculpture garden recently, I heard recited to people assembled in a large open air tent.  I did not join them seated there, but it was nice to hear some of his verses floating through the grove while I took pictures of the golden rod and rag weed along the trail. Whitman is unmistakable and the eminent bard of Democracy. : )

From the 1950s, you have Allen Ginsberg too - and Howl he does!

I think rather than criticizing some Nobel choices, it's more fun to think about who would we like to see win the Prize in the future. Paul said he looks at the winner's list to see what to avoid (an Anti-Literary Matter Reading list). But I have picked and chosen over the years and it is fun to make discoveries this way.

One more thought on the Prizes in general - for AI research - it could be entertaining to train on a group of past winners' texts and create a Meta-Nobel literature.  Or create something from non-winners, remembering all the geographical, gender, and ethnicity considerations and just pull in a large collection of random novels and poems - develop a hybrid.

Anyway, just some musings - I like the Prizes and their announcements, especially Physics, Literature, and Economics.

Nassim could be nominated someday - and maybe he already has been. That would turn the Swedish Academy upside down and his Twitter account would explode! 

Happy reading and writing too. : )

Amazing. He acted like a big baby. And he went bananas. 
Imagine flinging a box at the animal.
You can't trust a guy like that.
