When Balloons Break Bad


Once in some other lifetime.

I think I mentioned I downloaded some editing software on my Amazon Fire. The system is weird. It’s neither Mac or Windows based. It’s Amazon’s own software. You can download work around software that allows me to connect to my email among other things.

The editing software does a lot of things no other portable software can do. Images can be made to swirl, stretch, zoom in and out and look like they were made under water. It is not possible to download it to other editing software, but you can save it in a file which shows up on Amazon Photos. That’s how I am able to show it to you.

Originally, this was just a nice bucolic image of balloons floating through a quiet sunset. Then, I used the new software. Jeeze. I turned the picture into a vision of balloon hell. The sky exploded, balloons were sent fleeing left and right. I think the balloons are breaking bad… in the worst way.

This excites me.

I’m really interested in Google Labs research about AI and its ability to create an image from my words. There is a competitor, but the images that I saw look like cartoons. That’s not what I have in mind.

I want to describe my dreams and see an image that I can show you. Some of them will be visions of modern hell. Others will be simply color. Still, others will be funny.

I don’t see this happening anytime soon.

But, I’m ready whenever it does.

For now, this picture will have to do.

      1. When we decided to mostly live on the farm in Virginia we accidentally left the entire grid. Cellphone, well water, septic tank, propane gas, solar panels + batteries. We also bought the e-car. Might as well keep going…
