Global Network of Dreams:GNOD

So after checking out information about IBM’s Watson Computer, I wanted to see what else was being done in the field of AI. In my search I found this website that claims it is helpful for finding new music, movies, and authors.  I try to read as much as possible, but I have trouble finding authors I enjoy reading. So this site, based on authors I like and dislike, gave me a list of authors to check out.  Here’s their description of what they’re trying to do, from the website:

Gnod is my experiment in the field of artificial intelligence. Its a self-adapting system, living on this server and ‘talking’ to everyone who comes along. Gnods intention is to learn about the outer world and to learn ‘understanding’ its visitors. This enables gnod to share all its wisdom with you in an intuitive and efficient way. You might call it a search-engine to find things you don’t know about.

Next I tried the Music Mapping feature, I typed in an artist I like and it brought up a moving matrix of other artists similar to the original, then I picked another from those and it kept bringing up artists I liked.

Though I saw no new musical artists I wanted to hear, I did get a good list of authors to check out.  Try for yourself, I’ve linked the Homepage, Music, Movie and Book pages below.  If anything it’s a great timewaster on a slow Wednesday afternoon.

Watson Wins, but don’t worry about Skynet yet.

IBM created a supercomputer to compete on Jeopardy, and after 3 days of competition Watson, the computer won.  Well, Watson didn’t just win it kicked its human competitors’ BUTTs. Now some people may worry that we are giving computers too much thinking power, and that one day they may take over, like the Matrix, or worse…the Terminator!

Well for Watson to compete and win Jeopardy, this computer had to be housed in over 10 refrigerator sized shelf stacks, in a big room off camera at the IBM Labs where they filmed the show. Watson is a remarkable feat for the programmers at IBM, but not a sign of Cyber Armageddon.

Please, before you start worrying about your water supply or begin developing your own homemade EMPs, using baling wire, a microwave oven, a heavy duty capacitor and a satellite dish, read up on Watson and how IBM created it just to work on Jeopardy, as well as look at the editorial article I read by Steve Hamm.

Beavis and Butt-Head Returning to MTV!?!

According to an article in Rolling Stone, MTV is bringing back Beavis and Butthead.  This time they won’t just be watching music videos, but other shows like Jersey Shore and UFC fights and even youtube clips.  Well if Mike Judge and the Execs at MTV are going to bring the disturbed duo back, I hope it looks a little like this script I just dreamed up.

 

We start with the boys on the couch watching TV.

 

BUTT-HEAD
What the hell is this crap?

 

BEAVIS
Umm this is boring,  hehe, they’re just sitting around whining and stuff.  Somebody break stuff…yeah yeah destroy. Destroy.

 

BUTT-HEAD
Settle down Beavis. Huh huh huh.

 

BEAVIS
Make me, butt-wipe!

 

BUTT-HEAD
Look sluts, Huh huh huh

BEAVIS
I dunno Butthead, but uh, hehe, she looks like your mom, except sluttier.

 

BUTT-HEAD
Shut up Beavis, my mom’s way more of a slut than Snooki.

 

BEAVIS
What’s a Snooki, Butthead?

 

BUTT-HEAD
A Fat whore from the Jersey shore, dumbass. Huh huh huh, like your mom.

 

BEAVIS
Awwwww Yeah, sluts, hehehe sluts. Dammit another valtrex commercial, change the channel Butthead.

BUTT-HEAD
Huh huh look at this little girl? It’s a Beaver…huh huh

 

BEAVIS
NO NO NO make it stop, change it Butt-head CHANGE IT, I CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE!!!!!

Butthead changes the channel as Beavis freaks out.

BEAVIS
Leave it here Butthead, that’s Brock Lesner, he’s gonna kick some ass…hehehehe

 

BUTT-HEAD
Ummm… Beavis this is just two dudes rolling around on the floor. Huh huh Homos.

 

BEAVIS
No way, this is cool, he’s gonna kick him in the nuts, yeah…yeah.

 

BUTT-HEAD
Dude if you don’t shut up I’m gonna kick you in the nuts. Uh huh huh

 

Now B&B fight on the couch, fall to the floor, and continue to fight for a few moments.

BUTT-HEAD
Whoa…uh huh huh. He kicked him the junk.

BUTT-HEAD
Excited, Whoa! Huh huh uh,… (suave) Hey, baby. Huh huh.

BUTT-HEAD
Po po  po poker face….I want to poke her face….uh huh huh

 

BEAVIS
Ummmm Butt-Head, that’s a dude.

 

BUTT-HEAD
Shut up Beavis, that’s not Cher. Dumbass.

 

BEAVIS
Butthead, she’s got a wiener, I saw it on the inners.uhhhh inter.uuuuh, intrawebs. Yeah.

 

BUTT-HEAD
Shut up Beavis, (smacks Beavis across the mouth)

 

BEAVIS
Don’t make me kick your ass again Beavis, huh huh.

 

BUTT-HEAD
(then back to the TV) I love you.

BUTT-HEAD
You Will be mine, oh yes, you will be mine.

 

Beavis wanders off, as he leaves he says,

 

BEAVIS
Ummm….yeah I left something in Anderson’s shed. I’m gonna go look for it. hehe

 

Beavis and Butthead Return.
2011 Adam Knight…no rights reserved.

 

Okay, so I am no Mike Judge, but if they bring Beavis and Butt-Head back to MTV, I might actually have a reason to flip back over to MTV after all these years.

Christina Perri – Jar of Hearts video

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video for Christina Perri –  Jar of Hearts.  I like this song, but it makes me feel guilty every time I hear it.  However, now that I’ve seen the video (and yes Christina is as attractive as her voice) I’m not ready to write letters of apology to all my exes after hearing it.  All the interpretive dancing makes me laugh, and all I think about is the line from Donnie Darko, “Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion”  But here’s the link to the video on youtube, let me know what you think.
