The WordPress Cabaret
The WordPress Cabaret is a creator of random poetry.
I named this plugin after the “Cabaret Voltaire”, the nightclub founded by Dadaists in Zurich in 1916.
Like futurism, Dada was probably one of the few forms of Art of the first half of the past century that could have performed even better using computers, since those artists loved so much random stuff, graphics, fonts and technology in general.
This plugin is incomplete for now, and it can’t do a lot to entertain you. It can be seen in action here.
For now it creates random poetry out of your posts and comments, and clouds made of spam. I think it can be enjoyable and sometimes even somewhat poetic, or funny.
I thought I was going to work a lot more on it, but it didn’t work out that way.
Extract, upload to the plugins folder of your wordpress install, activate.
Go to “manage” -> “The WordPress Cabaret” and click on the function names.
These functions can be used to include cabaret content anywhere on your blog.
Finally, you are more than welcome to share here in the comments the poetic results this cabaret generated for you.
