I’ve been hearing a lot of “AI is bad” this, “AI is going to take the jobs of artists” that. Okay Da Vinci Dickriders, listen up. Are artists actually producing the product the people truly want? Because I know for a fact that Gerhard Richter didn’t draw Dora the Explorer off a xan, but Img2Go.com surely did. When it was 2am and I had a deep desire for a painting of former President Barack Obama hitting the gritty, you know who was there for me in my time of need? AI. I can’t say the same for any “real” artist. I’m sure StarryAi could make the Mona Lisa, but Leonardo da Vinci could not have made Justin Bieber’s fursona, or Steve Harvey in a rock band. When a person can draw me whatever I want to see in 2 minutes, I’ll switch my stance.
People just aren’t creative enough for this. The existence of AI also causes drama, another thing I’m a fan of. Adam Levine “swears the photo of him cheating on his wife is a deep fake.” This has been disproven; AI would not have put 6 moles on Levine’s ass.
Also, AI voices — fantastic. I live for Obama and Trump arguments over who’s scoring more pussy tonight. On the topic of Trump, he’s mad that people are making him say he’s a “beta soy boy” in an AI voice, but he seemingly has no problem using AI to remove Jeffrey Epstein from his old photos…
