Some ChatGPT Fun

Seeing some fun ChatGPT prompts and responses floating around the net today, I thought I'd throw in a few of my own. To my great delight, all of them were readable, accurate, and passed any plagiarism tests I could throw at them.

All Time Vocalists

Those songbirds which transcend conventional ability and became something altogether more greater. I listen to these artists when I want to feel a higher power.

Websites that make the Internet worth it.

Can we admit that, by and large, the Internet was a bad idea? As someone who's made most of their nut and name on the Internet in some fashion, I'm convinced most of it is garbage. This is my list of sites that have only given me joy.

The Great Indoors

When we moved into this apartment in October 2015, I figured the only creature residing with us would be our canine companion Jazz. What I didn't know was that the next six years would feature a revolving cast of characters including bats, squirrels, and birds. So very many birds.

Names for Jazz

These are some of the affectionate titles I've used to refer directly to my dog, whose actual name is Jazz.

My Favorite Things 2020 (The First Half)

I haven't compiled a mid-year list of my favorite things since 2015. I've just been so struck with compelling media during the year of COVID that I felt it was worth doing a quick run-down of the stuff that's keeping me occupied while most social activities are put on hold.
