Made with Discord.js (a Node.js module for the Discord API) and TheMovieDB API.
This project was me trying to make a discord bot. Using TheMovieDB API, I created a bot that emulates "Steve Buscemi". This bot would be able to fetch quotes, clips, films, and images of Steve Buscemi. Why Steve Buscemi? I'm not entirely sure why. Looking back the project seems ridiculous. In actuality, the bot can be adjusted to act as any actor listed on API, I just for some reason chose to make it Steve Buscemi as an example. Naively feeling proud of the project, I even submitted it to Discord Bot List. This way, the Buscemi bot would be hosted on an external server.
However, before I could get the bot listed, I received a takedown notice from TheMovieDB. It had been sent from a certain someone I can only assume is associated with Steve Buscemi. Somehow, they had discovered I was using his likeness. I was surprised at the time, though I guess I simply did not understand the legal aspects. I had thought because I was not trying to monetize anything, it'd be ok. Oh well. I hope Steve Buscemi does not hold negative feelings against me for this.
