homicide: an unwelcome guest

Bit nice to see Noelene Brown in a role as a nasty piece of work in this episode of Homicide from November 1969. 



Here she is with Brian Wenzel. I'm not entirely sure what her character is supposed to be doing. She is involved with guys who are trying to get access to a safe full of money in a house that's been sold to a Brisbane family ostensibly by a woman moving to the UK but she's actually been buried in the backyard. 

It's funny they didn't give her a bigger role. She was definitely a celebrity at this time (as she remains). I mean she was in this show (article is Sun-Herald 10 August 1969 p. 88): 

This one (Age TV Radio Guide 24 April 1969 p. 10). 

Imaginative title on that one. The SMH also has a story dated 17 February 1969 (p. 15) that says she was in the new Beauty and the Beast. Noel Ferrier was the host of that show and he was in the previous episode, 'Blue Moo', playing a night-club owner. 

SMH 14 June 1969 p. 21 has this item. Whatever Pay Cards is, I don't know - the issue of the SMH from the day before is missing from newspapers.com. It's not that important. All I'm saying is, Noeline Brown was a real star, a celebrity, and it's odd she was in this episode of Homicide. Thuh end.

the cumulation of the greatest of all art in the history of western civilisation

More of the same as per previous post. I have plenty more, don't worry, but I'll try and keep a measured flow. These were, as I recall, 'squirrels in a moscow apartment in the style of Cezanne'.



This is where the blimps got into the story, but I am not sure the algorithm entirely understands what a blimp is or what it is to be in a blimp. Because I then asked it to show me kittens in a blimp above the jungle. This is the remainder of those creations, most of them were in the previous post. 




These ones were also squirrels in Moscow. I can't remember who they're 'in the style of' but I wish I could as I like that style. 
 





















sorry not sorry

So for no reason yesterday I started messing with another AI programme (I say 'another' like I've told you about the last time I tried. I didn't tell you. When I was in Perth though I downloaded an ai image generator programme and used it for a few days. I wasn't totally disgusted with what it created but I was underwhelmed. For some reason or as I said no reason, yesterday I went back and chose a random new app for this purpose and really got into it in a big way. It's so addictive! 

Each prompt (eg kittens in a blimp over the jungle in the style of... Frederick McCubbin, Stanley Spencer etc) generates four images, and I must admit I have saved far more than I should have, notwithstanding saving them is a matter of a thumb twitch. But I haven't even really had time to look at them all properly, and some are incredible. 

Here are fifteen for you to think about. I'll upload more later, airdrop is being a dick right now.
