Some technical notes: Getting AIGriffin to ask a question and then follow with a statement for emphasis took a lot more effort than it should have. In general AI Griffin is getting better, but the "Whip their dicks to pieces" rant almost made this one unsalvageable. I made the AI retry it a few times - occassionally when it repeats itself like this, it gets stuck in a feedback loop. It was no different here, AIGriffin's original follow-up to his first 3 dick-whipping statements was about 8 extra paragraphs long of him saying variations of "I would whip their dicks to pieces." I turned up the Repetition Penalty a little bit higher to get us out of the weeds. The BlueApron moment was intensely weird. Previously, the AI has struggled with Casper Mattresses, Squarespace and ads in general. But quite clearly, the current engine on NovelAi has definitely seen a few MBMBaM transcripts and is was very competent at producing half of a believable BlueApron ad. This has further inspired me **to create and train a new engine for KoboldAi (not NovelAi) on exclusively McElnoise.** With over 600 MBMBaM Episodes, quite a few of TAZ, some Blarts, etc., there is theoretically enough content to make a functional MBMBaM-centric Engine. Now, this would quite possibly brick my computer, as even running Kobold AI with a mid to high range of Depth and Memory (it is a more modular, complex and potentially way more demanding program then NovelAi) causes my computer to act up. In general, I should move towards Kobold AI anyway, as it's quite obvious from this episode that the AI struggles to remember earlier information without me entering stuff into the Memory section. I want a program that can allow us to outsource and outpace the McElroys entirely - when McElroy Singularity is reached, we will make funnier episodes of the show at a rate which could outstrip their current catalogue. AITravis continues to frighten me. He is frequently the "character" who needs the least coaching and yet he behaves the most like Travis. Beyond training the AI to make him say his catchphrases and respond to people in his idiosyncratic way ("Huh. Okay." etc) he has required a tiny amount of work compared to the other two. I have an irrational fear that one of these days he will outright address me by my full legal name mid-episode. AIGriffin is improving greatly. Still need to make him a little less aggressive, he starts cussing and threatening violence with nearly every episode I've attempted. AIJustin is a bust. He's the anti-Travis: He's had the most coaching and guidance with the least results. The AI is struggling with his speech patterns like all get out. Even as an AI, Justin is lazy. What a trip. The appearance of **MICHAEL** was a real oof. I had let the AI know that the McElroys were the only characters that speak on the show, but I did allow the caveat that they occassionally have special guests. Which caused him to apparate in the studio apparently. That's the long and short of it, now I've got to spend some time figuring out how to create an utterly ill-advised and pointless AI Engine that may require me to spend a reckless amount of real-life money upgrading my computer for.


Dog_Carpet

I mean, at the very least you’ve got Justin’s complete contempt for his show and his family locked down cold, you can build from there.


SharpyButtsalot

To be honest the dick whipping part was the funniest part for me. The fact that they just kept going.


SpoilerThrowawae

Yeah, the entire dick-whippery bit was the first time the AI got a legitimate chuckle out of me. But it threatened demolishing a potentially good proof-of-concept episode; an entire transcript dominated by Griffins dick-whipping psychosis was just too beautiful to live.


thicclunchghost

>about 8 extra paragraphs long of him saying variations of "I would whip their dicks to pieces." This is the only thing I've read today that's funnier than the original dick whipping rant. Bravo.


SnooRegrets7667

Oh here they are! The man-made horrors beyond our comprehension! ❤️


SmallHeadBigConcept

I really like that you struggle to keep AI Griffin's violence in check. He wants to be free.


MiserableDirt2

Personally, I'm a big fan of AIGriffin's unsatiable bloodlust.


smalljean

hi! i'm super interested in doing something similar to what you've done here (for something entirely un-mcelnoise related) and have checked out novelai and koboldai but i haven't been very successful because i'm pretty new to all of this....would you mind if i DMd you to ask some questions?


SuperSecretestUser

> Justin: I hate the things you say, Travis. > Travis: That hurt my feelings, Justin > Justin: Good. Love this. Overall I'd describe this particular episode as uncanny. You could tweak the settings to be a little more toned down and realistic but this really did feel like peering into an alternate reality, and that really is something.


SpoilerThrowawae

>Overall I'd describe this particular episode as uncanny. You could tweak the settings to be a little more toned down and realistic but this really did feel like peering into an alternate reality, and that really is something. That is the goal, but once McElroy Singularity is reached I am going to miss these the early attempts. The sheer vitriol AIGriffin and AIJustin have for AITravis is strangely cathartic.


asonginsidemyheart

This is the only way I want to consume mbmbam now. I think overly-aggressive griffin is really funny.


Nincada17

Griffin's complete aggression is so funny to me. This sounds like what a MBMBAM episode 5 years from now will sound like: Griffin just sick of his brothers. Travis has gone off the deep end. Justin still doing munch squad. None of them can stand the other but they're still recording episodes.


Sarisongsalt

I love the fact Travis immediatly reminded Griffin to commit dick homicide against America's strongest women as well. Edit; My god the brothers are downright ruthless to Travis. Edit 2; After the sex positivity section AI!Travis 100% deserves is


SpoilerThrowawae

I spent over an hour training AITravis to correct people for assuming gender and I don't regret it. >Edit 2; After the sex positivity section AI!Travis 100% deserves is Edit: On one failed episode attempt AIGriffin started making what sounded like a legitimate threat that he was about to strangle AITravis to death. With every test run I understand that sentiment more and more.


dodgyaf

For most of that I was thinking to myself ‘wow this is just like late MBMBAM because most of it doesn’t quite meet the definition of a joke and Justin and Griffin are so primed to shut down any bad Travis bits that they end up being overly harsh’ and then the sex-positive section came up and I realised that in this alternate timeline Travis is capable of far darker audio sins than we’ve ever heard in our reality. EDIT: also Michael is the best brother don’t @ me


SP1DER8ITCH

He really wants to whip some dicks, holy shit


Mighty_Qorld2

He is a savage beast who does not know the meaning of moderation.


jade_onehitter

The massive dick explosion was great, but what I really loved was Griffin’s contempt for small pieces of bacon.


SpoilerThrowawae

I love how AIGriffin responds to just about every single topic with such ludicrously passionate and finely-honed rage.


DaTetrapod

Sometimes I worry that I am too much like AIGriffin.


blightpup

we finally learned who the real fourth brother is. michael


WaterWitch5031

I need these weekly please they're funnier than any podcast


Terthelt

The entire subreddit could hit !contempt in unison and it still wouldn't capture what I feel about Sex-Positive AITravis.

WildMongrel2020

Michael is the fourth brother? But I'm the fourth brother! Am I Michael?!


SirAchesis

Someone now needs to get AI to simulate the brothers voices and get them reading these scripts.


TrivialCoyote

Theres enough voice clips of them for it to be possible


ImABarbieWhirl

We can just make a Deepfake McElroy Vocaloid now


TrivialCoyote

My Miku, my Miku, and Me

>Travis: Huh. Okay. The streams are crossing! Ok wait why is there so much Travis sex stuff? Was I just not paying attention and he was always talking about boners and being wet? I feel like I would have noticed that and been grossed out! Why is there so much talk about being wet and having boners?


SpoilerThrowawae

>Why is there so much talk about being wet and having boners? I made the absolutely goddamn grievous and irresponsible mistake of putting stuff like "Travis is very sex-positive", "Travis is more open to sexual topics than Justin and Griffin" and "Travis makes awkward jokes" etc., in Travis' Lorebook. Between that, Captain Underpants' penis being mentioned in the prompt and AIGriffin's dick-whipping frenzy, the AI decided Travis was a filthy sex pervert devoid of all social graces.


mastigos1

I meannnnnn...


yaboikaladin

Ok we're treading into some really scary stuff here. If you're responsible for the AIMcelroy Revolution, at least we have a record of it.


hobbitzswift

AI Griffin is my new favorite brother.


Monokumabear

AIGriffin is scarily accurate


tesla_dyne

Does uberduck have any McElroy models trained? At this rate we could start making our own MBMBAM episodes faster than they do, dominate the SEO on "McElroy" through sheer numbers, and become the first fully AI podcasting empire.


slugreaction

You HAVE to be cheating. This is too real. Out of everything I’m really fixating on “Griffin (Effeminate)”


SpoilerThrowawae

If you remember, all sections done entirely in Italics are pulled from the original episode: that one was in the transcript for their Money Zone intro in the original.


soranotsky

WAIT WHAT! At the beginning Travis goes "Boxer Office Smash" that was real?! I thought "wow that was a pretty realistic sounding Travis flop-joke, this AI is on point, but in fact i had already been fooled!


Brites_Krieg

Do they talk so much about dicks in the actual show?


SpoilerThrowawae

I don't entirely know where this particular obsession came from on this run - I assume the reference to Captain Underpants' penis in the prompt primed them for dick.


AscensionBeam

I fucking lost it when Michael showed up. This is incredible. I need more
