ChatGPT and DALL-E 2!

The internet if full of interesting stuff and sometimes it finds me.  So when ChatGPT and DALL-E 2 found me I got it to create some text and a picture. Yep, it is interesting and I laughed while selecting my favourite generation - pretty safe to say that I'm not redundant juuust yet.

ChatGPT: "write an article in the style of Jawmunji about a recent experience playing guitar in a pub"

DALL-E 2: "digital art of a bald middle aged caucasian man playing a classical guitar in a brightly lit pub"

(Note that DALL-E 2 did not know who jawmunji was hence "bald middle aged caucasian man"

(Everything that follows from here is generated by an A.I.)


It was a typical Saturday night at the local pub. The crowd was lively and the drinks were flowing. I had just finished setting up my guitar and was ready to take the stage. As I strummed the first chord, the room fell silent and all eyes were on me.

I began with a classic rock song, "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses. The crowd immediately began to sing along and I could feel the energy in the room rising. As I transitioned into a more upbeat song, "Wonderwall" by Oasis, the crowd began to clap and dance along.

The night continued on with a mix of classic and modern hits, each one bringing the crowd to new heights of excitement. I even took a few requests, playing everything from "Hotel California" by The Eagles to "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran.

As the night went on, I could feel the chemistry between myself and the crowd growing stronger. We were all in the moment, lost in the music and the energy of the room.

As I played my last song of the night, "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin, I could see the crowd swaying and singing along. I couldn't help but feel a sense of accomplishment and joy as I finished the song and the crowd gave me a standing ovation.

Playing guitar in a pub is truly a unique and special experience. The energy and connection between the musician and the crowd is something that cannot be replicated in any other setting. I can't wait to do it again soon.

Rock on, Jawmunji out!
