Presumably, very smart people are working on Artificial Intelligence, and soon even my clumsy prose will be replaced by a bot. Until then, though, readily available bot code spits out random text like a combination of magnetic poetry, William S. Burroughs, and a feline on catnip walking across a laptop.

Of course, sometimes the results are simply beautiful in their absurdity. (For more on this phenomenon, check Horse ebooks. Relevant: “Is the dance floor calling? No” … “unfortunately, as you probably already know, people”)

Such is the case for The Black Madonna – the being the acclaimed international DJ with outspoken attitudes on the role of marginalized groups in music and the army of pointless naysaying trolls to match.

Sorry, my own bot may have written the last line; I went out for a beer. Don’t worry, if you don’t know who The Black Madonna is, it’s worth finding out – and the tweets below will still be no less, in my view, profound.

Let us marvel:

Identity politics:

Any article mentioning anything to do with techno needs the cliched references to Berlin’s coolest club:


On justice:

Now, all I want in the world is to learn silly Twitterbot programming. Who’s with me?

    As a Black Madonna fan and a Horse eBooks megafan, I’m both excited and scared to see something so hyper-relevant to my interests. Thanks, internet.

    Was this article created by a bot, too?

    • Too late, already used that joke in the story. 😉

      Oh, unless you’re asking honestly. Yes, it was. Duh.

      Yes, as well as all the comments too. Except me of course, i’m the only human here. Or am I ?

    Looks like standard Markov Chain processing. See, for example:

    • Yep, exactly. Of course, now this is becoming the text processing equivalent of … VHS video distortion and vinyl turntable crackle and JPEG distortion artifacts… someday, we’ll use it nostalgically. (Maybe that’s already the case.)

  • Looks like very nice ,thanks a lot for this best idea..Keep it up…

  • These people need to discover the 20 year old “Dada Engine”, the guts of the Postmodernism generator:
