Welcome to the Metaverse

This piece arrived, this morning, from one of the leading participants in this blog. He wondered if it was produced by an (truly mediocre) AI program or just someone who does poorly with English as a second language? I’d say, “Yes” to all of the above.

Here’s the headline and a few paragraphs…wholly unedited:


One week after Alec Baldwin by accident shot and killed “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, the movie’s armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is talking out by her attorneys.

“First Hannah wish to prolong her deepest and most honest condolences to the household and buddies of Halyna,” her assertion learn, which additionally famous director Joel Souza’s hospitalization. “She was an inspirational girl in movie who Hannah appeared as much as. She additionally gives her ideas and prayers for a speedy restoration to Joel. Hannah is devastated and utterly beside herself over the occasions which have transpired.”

Nonetheless, she did need to tackle “some untruths” which have circulated, which she famous “have falsely portrayed her and slandered her.” Within the assertion, her attorneys famous “security is Hannah’s primary precedence on set. In the end this set would by no means have been compromised if stay ammo weren’t launched. Hannah has no concept the place the stay rounds got here from.”…

A current search warrant affidavit obtained by E! Information acknowledged that Gutierrez-Reed informed police that she’d “checked the ‘dummies’ and ensured they weren’t ‘sizzling’ rounds” on the set of “Rust.”

“…The protection of our solid and crew is the highest precedence of Rust Productions and everybody related to the corporate,” the corporate mentioned. “We are going to proceed to cooperate with the Santa Fe authorities of their investigation and supply psychological well being companies to the solid and crew throughout this tragic time.”

I wouldn’t look down on someone sincerely trying their best to translate a foreign language. I’ve seen a few guides to the task capable of producing text this distorted. My guess is the article – in fact the whole page where it appears – is produced by terrible software. Either way, it’s hilarious.

I’ve read portions of this aloud to a few folks. One thought it was deliberately contrived. That’s a lot of work to illustrate an infrequent problem with link blogging.

    In 1969, the same year Mario Puzo published “The Godfather,” William S. Burroughs published “The Last Words of Dutch Schultz,” a 115-page book written in the form of a film script. Burroughs never managed to produce the screenplay, nor did he intend to. Though others did. For years the actor Dennis Hopper owned the rights, but nothing came of it.
    A Chicago theater known for the unconventional mounted a production in 1988. Burroughs himself attended the opening, and earned a curtain call.
    In 2002 Dutch filmmaker Gerrit van Dijk produced a 22-minute version of the script with Rutger Hauer speaking Schultz’s part https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty0rBt5lcH8.
