Well, today I learned that the cute AI writing program will pop up a content warning for potentially “objectionable” content
@Thomas Thomas what did you do to it
@Pixley I’ve just been having it write film treatments and it decided “erotic” meant “pornographic” in one instance
@Thomas well, you wanted them to fuck, didn't you?
@Pixley I do, I was just surprised at how specific it got (very)
@Pixley usually you just get fun things like this one
@Thomas this is a pretty good plot! I hate it!
@Pixley imagine the tension!
@Thomas @Pixley and the Vaughn-Beckinsale chemistry !
@mood @Thomas it's truly so funny that out of all the women in the world, it chose: Kate Beckinsale
@Thomas @Pixley it was like “while we’re casting this,”
@mood @Pixley I think she could pull it off
@Thomas @mood while we're here: what's a real-life example of an "erotic comedy", Thomas
@Pixley @mood @Thomas is that different than sex farce because fully half of movies between 1965 and 1975 were sex farces
@alex @mood @Thomas it feels different to me, because a sex farce isn't supposed to actually get you horny, and if something is described as "erotic" I think it's supposed to get you horny
@Pixley @alex @mood yeah, sex comedy and romantic comedy aren’t the same as erotic comedy
@Pixley @alex @mood ALSOOOO
@Thomas @alex @mood fuck!!!!
@Pixley @alex @mood hold tight I’m on the phone with Sony Pictures
@Pixley @alex @mood sorry, I should have said Paramount+
@Pixley @alex @mood just [insert studio that makes a lot of garbage or streaming service that nobody wants]
@alex @Thomas @Pixley pre-greenlit for quibi
@mood @alex @Thomas Freevee is salivating
@Pixley @alex @Thomas a quibi, a freevee, a plan, paramount+
@mood @Pixley @alex the first tantalizing paragraph of my pitch
@Thomas @mood @Pixley @alex what's deeply upsetting is that this actually isn't far from the truth
@infernusgoatus @mood @Pixley @alex the AI recast the Russian diplomat with Natasha Lyonne
@infernusgoatus @mood @Pixley @alex y’all it’s important for me that y’all know I have been generating additional story points for the Unnamed Kissinger Erotic Comedy but not like, in a weird way
@Thomas @mood @Pixley @alex does he die horny
@infernusgoatus @mood @Pixley @alex that’s certainly a note we can give
@Pixley @alex @infernusgoatus @Thomas “eyyyy henry im doin’ diplomacy ova heyah! das vidanya, all right all right already”
@Pixley @infernusgoatus @Thomas @alex russian dollplomat
@Thomas @Pixley @alex didn’t take the low-hanging fruit of “kiss” in the name. we’ve got a real auteur here. a new voice
