I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: https://openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: https://www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? https://www.tomscott.com/contact/

Filmed safely: https://www.tomscott.com/safe/

OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.

I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

"Kirby's Dream" probably came from the title's of various Kirby games such as "Kirby's Dream Land", "Kirby's Dream Course", "Kirby's Dream Collection" and "Kirby's Return to Dream Land".

The word you're looking for is Anemoia. I dont think it's actually in any dictionary but it's generally accepted that it means "Nostalgia for a time you've never known" The song Midnight City by M83 really gives me these vibes and makes me really understand the meaning of that word.

And this is why i believe that 90% of conspiracy-theory comments on youtube are some chinese/russian AI designed to destabalize the western nations. Well believe... Or maybe its more like a soothing thought :O

If anyone wants to try out GPT-3 for themselves you can try AI Dungeon. You can get access to the ‘Griffin’ model for free (limited to 100 actions a day or overcharged to 2000 actions) or pay for the superior ‘Dragon’ model. In the explore section someone has even made a scenario to make up Tom Scott video titles!

What if one of the ideas it gave you for a video was were you talk about ideas that you can’t do in real life cause they’re fictional so you get an animator’s help to show what you wanna show..

The strange light the flow over Oxfordshire could be a work as once a Balloon shaped like a TV style UFO flow over north Oxfordshire and many reported it to fox FM at the time. One of those things I partially remember of FOX FM before they sold out they had good trusty local news but we all now media is now brought and not local on Heart FM which now own them.
