I had huge writer’s block and couldn’t come up with a good topic for this week assignment. I think one of the reasons is because i still don’t fully understand the concept of word vector and the way it works yet? I decided that for this week I’d try experimenting with new methods and focus on understanding each tools rather than the concept. I decided to go over week 9 and week 10 materials one more time. I followed the tutorials and used week 3 work and Lana Del Rey’s lyrics as source text this time.
I reworked my mashup lyrics from week 3 with synonym lookup. Now the program is rewriting lyrics that have the original words replaced by their synonyms (Which was I wanted to do before but I didn’t know how). I also brought in more lyrics from my favorite artist and used CMU rhyming dictionary to create new poems. For this one, I would have to revisit this piece again and make sure that it wouldn’t pick the same word as a rhyme because most of the results it gave me was two same phrases over and over.
Please see some of the results I like on the top of this post.
