Four: Poetic Form

Computer Generated Fortune Twister

A fortune twister, which is basically an instruction to change your fortune when people get unsatisfying answers from fortune telling. One traditional way of twisting your fortune is to change your name, I also add learning a new or emerging technology into the instruction so that it is also work motivating. I used Tracery to made rules to form a sentence that contains 3 word collections: first names,  moods, and emerging technologies.

 

 

Computer Generated Acrostic from Beatles Songs

 

 

Combining the Two

I provided “options” to the origins so that each line will randomly pick a different fortune twisting method, which are changing your name, learning a new technology, or singing a Beatles song.

Sample results:

Your future looks fake. But you can twist your fortune easily, by learning how to do regenerative medicine.
Your future looks suicidal. But you can twist your fortune easily, by learning how to do research in the natural sciences.

Your future looks fortunate. But you can twist your fortune easily, by singing Don’t forget me Martha my dear.

Your future looks dumb. But you can twist your fortune easily, by changing your name to Caroline.

Your future looks ribald. But you can twist your fortune easily, by singing Why should I feel the way I do?

Your future looks fatigued. But you can twist your fortune easily, by learning how to do agricultural robotics.

Your future looks haunting. But you can twist your fortune easily, by singing Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me.
