Default Netphoria AI story

Prompt: Write a story about posting on netphoria.

Once upon a time, there was a young man named Jack who was a huge fan of the band The Smashing Pumpkins. He had been following the band since he was a teenager and had even seen them in concert multiple times. He was always on the lookout for new information and updates about the band and their upcoming projects.

One day, while browsing the internet, he stumbled upon a forum called Netphoria. It was a community of fans of the band who would share news, rumors, and opinions about the band. Jack was excited to join the community and start sharing his own thoughts and experiences with other fans.

He created his account and began posting on the forum. He shared pictures from concerts he had attended, discussed his favorite songs, and even shared a few of his own fan theories about the band's upcoming album. He was having a great time connecting with other fans and learning new things about the band he loved so much.

As he started to post more and more, he began to notice that some of the other users on the forum were not as kind and friendly as he had initially thought. Some of the users were very critical of other people's opinions and would often start arguments on the forum. Jack was disappointed by this behavior but decided to continue posting and not let it discourage him.

One day, Jack posted a thread about a new theory he had about the band's upcoming album. He had spent hours researching and gathering evidence to support his theory. However, when he posted it, he was met with a lot of negative reactions. Some users called him names and said that his theory was ridiculous. Jack was hurt by the responses and felt discouraged.

But then, a few of the more experienced users on the forum stepped in and defended Jack's theory. They pointed out that everyone has different opinions and that it's okay to disagree. They encouraged Jack to keep posting and not let the negative reactions discourage him. Jack was touched by their support and decided to continue posting on Netphoria.

From that day on, Jack felt more confident in his opinions and continued to share his thoughts and experiences on the forum. He made some great friends and learned a lot about the band he loved so much. He was grateful for the community of fans he had found on Netphoria and knew that he would continue to post on the forum for years to come.

The end.

A nice touch would've been to put

"As it turned out, the next Smashing Pumpkins album turned out to be utter fuckshit clown music, but Jack continued posting anyway."

right at the end

Upon ignoring the Terms of Service, repeating prompts, and continuously revising his requests, Jack received information far beyond what the creators originally intended.

Now, The Simpsons can outlive even its voice actors by being trained on a dataset of all the current episodes.

I inadvertently picked a video at random where that's kind of the joke, lol. (that his voice acting is just his voice, not AI shit)

I've heard some of those AI voices before, and they were sort of 50% right.

This is 100% Billy Corgan's voice. It's very very freaky.

I've just read a couple tweets about it, so I don't really know. But reading it, it seems to me like they're saying "When you sign up to play [Character X], you are giving us the right to use your voice to portray future appearances of [Character X] without paying you." So if Arnett had signed this for Bojack, they'd be able to do a reboot in five years and just use AI to do his lines instead of rehiring him. I dunno, that's my guess.

Like, pretty much any time a celebrity, versus a professional voice actor, does a cartoon, they're just using their normal voice, yeah? I'm sure they've taken that into account.

Can't wait for the future when every blockbuster movie features the same 8 to 10 actors reconstructed digitally for maximum profits.

But seriously, I want to know how that Netphoria reading was done. And what other voices are on it.

And the story was written by a AI model loaded with Transformers and Expendibles movies

Could be dangerous, ha, but this is the site: https://beta.elevenlabs.io

It went live last week and seems like a gamechanger. You only need to upload a min audio clip of someone speaking to create a model.

If you login w/ a Google acct it takes like 2 sec to upload an MP3, create a voice model, and then just do TXT to speech. They give you 10,000 characters to try it out - can makes as many voice models as you want:



They also have a discord server here: https://discord.com/channels/1066739690436313158

Dang, I uploaded a couple long clips from the podcast and it just couldn't get Billy's voice right for me. I wanted it to read Sonic Johnny's magnum opus (You know, "There were strangers in the group, names we didn't know...").
