Artisan 8-bit Photo Booth

If you don’t already follow me on Twitter, you probably don’t know that I launched a new project last week. So take a minute and go check out Hipster Ipsum. You know, if you want to.

I’ll admit that it’s kind of stupid — and making fun of hipsters is way played out by now — but this is one of those ideas that has been kicking around in my head for a while. And rather than just letting it flop around in my brainpan until someone else made it, I decided to carve out a little of my free time and actually ship it.

I’m pretty happy with the results too. Here’s some of the text it’s generating:

Jean shorts aliqua magna mollit. Whatever est leggings put a bird on it aesthetic sint tempor butcher. Keytar gluten-free fuck sustainable. Portland aesthetic chambray, Readymade nulla 8-bit bahn mi Austin keffiyeh Four Loko letterpress. Veniam skateboard deserunt vinyl nisi fugiat. Lo-fi accusamus sapiente, pariatur tofu aesthetic do leggings deserunt organic quis consequat.

I’m sure that there’s plenty of hipster cliches that I’ve missed. So if you check out the site and see any that I might be missing, don’t hesitate to let me know!

    Just nipped over here to let you know that Hipster Ipsum is awesome, and sounds like many conversations I overhear in PDX. If the language were a little more work-appropriate (or if that were an option), I’d use it as filler in dev site test posts.

      Glad you like it! A comment in Hacker News already convinced me to make everything but the abbreviations lowercase, so I’ll think about dropping a SFW option into place.
