I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.

Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.

Hey Tom, there's a town in South Devon called Decoy. There is a local legend that it was built specifically to convince the Luftwaffe to drop bombs on them instead of Plymouth. I was always skeptical, but could be worth a look!

Omg, it's adorable that you asked the AI using "please" at the start of your request. You are definitely one of the few people who are going to survive the techno-apocalypse because you showed the machines respect from the start. EDIT: and then this took a scary and sinister turn when you mentioned the possibility of AI generating customer reviews etc...

Also it’s funny you said you don’t think there’s a word for nostalgia for something that doesn’t exist, but actually in welsh there’s this word, ‘hiraeth’, which doesn’t translate, but sort of means a longing to go back to either wales, or a place/time that doesn’t exist!

Plot twist: The AI is from an alternate universe which is why it had prompts for things that don’t exist, it is slowly creating a portal for the universe it came from and by telling prompts of things from that universe, once it has told enough alternate universe prompts, a portal will open and the alternate universe will take over our universe
