Hipster ipsum: filler text for your next design project

"Do you need some text for your website or whatever? *sigh* Okay… " Hipster Ipsum generates "artisanal filler text for your site or project." (via @sfslim)

  1. Heh heh!

    Although one good thing about using the standard Lorem Ipsum is that you can search for it in the final draft, just to double check that everything was properly replaced. 

  2. Lomo mixtape ethical scenester gentrify, mlkshk blog vice 8-bit quinoa.

  3. I see all the good stereotypes there. Although master cleanse? Isn’t that something that Hollywood celebs do? I didn’t know hipsters cared about the state of their colons…

      It may not be their own colons that they’re concerned about.

    1. The whole original Trek cast’s there . . . although I can’t for the life of me figure out who the guy on the left is.

        Under that hipster jacket he’s a redshirt.

      2. Chekhov, Pavel Andreievich. I’m thinking the artist is shooting more for the Abrams Trek than TOS.

      3. Maybe they were working from the new movie Star Trek cast. The new Checkov, other than being male and wearing a yellow shirt, doesn’t look anything like the original Checkov. Might also explain the huge Dr. McCoy. 

    2. I think it’s the young hipster version of some of the the Enterprise crew. Kirk’s got hipster glasses on.

  4. I read once, maybe here, that dragon myths existed at the same time across many cultures that had no contact and the reason, assuming dragons are not real, was that dragons represented all of the dangers man has faced during evolution. Claws,Fangs,Scales,Wings,Fire. They were essentially the sum of all of our natural fears. I am starting to feel like “hipsters” are the same thing. Hipsters don’t own any of the individual things listed and many of them apply to all sorts of groups. It’s sort of like how Chinese dragons differ from European dragons. Someone who lives in New York has a completely different hipster in their head than someone who lives in Philly.

    I just wish the trend of classifying and commenting on “hipsters”would fade. I am starting to find it more annoying than the hipsters. My hipster dragon is anyone wearing flip flops and a scarf and/or wearing wayfarers.

  5. Couple notes. First, careful if you use this for a project as there are at least 2 NSFW words in there. Second, the advantage of the original Lorem ipsum is that, assuming you don’t know Latin, you don’t notice any individual words, so it disappears and you can focus on form. However, I should note that the actual hipster ipsum has more Latin strewn about and is not just hip terms.
