    Aside from the music, it’s so nice seeing so many happy people in massive crowds at Glastonbury. (even if they all got covid, I guess.)

    A few years ago I’m sure someone I know on here was wondering what the nameless stone sculpture is on the corner of Chiswell Sat and Moorgate is, by All Bar One. @artukdotorg’s new outdoor sculpture catalogue reveals it is Faceted Column by Stephen Cox.…

    Obviously these aren’t all typical good prompts, geared towards getting the best images. But if these “AIs” were actually intelligent that wouldn’t matter.

    I’ve tried these same British nostalgia prompts with Midjourney.

    1. Do you remember Spangles?
    2. Zammo off Grange Hill chasing the dragon
    3. The Phantom Flan Flinger throwing custard pies at Keith Chegwin
    4. Catweazle licking a Funny Feet lolly
