Hipster Writing Machine

Trying to write about hipsters but don’t speak the language? No problem. There is a new website that can help you generate hipster lingo automatically.

Hipster Ipsum helps you create “Artisanal filler text for your site or project.” You can get four paragraphs of hip words in your choice of flavor: “Hipster with a shot of Latin.,” or “Hipster, neat.”

Here is the first in series of meaningless hipster jargon that the hipster writing machine created for us: “Beard lo-fi cred, yr scenester art party vinyl put a bird on it. Farm-to-table 3 wolf moon locavore, wayfarers portland carles high life leggings tumblr. Skateboard portland farm-to-table mustache, banh mi tofu ethical. Salvia synth four loko lo-fi, artisan master cleanse +1. Banh mi raw denim aesthetic whatever retro food truck. Artisan echo park freegan sartorial 8-bit bicycle rights, farm-to-table cosby sweater twee tattooed fanny pack whatever Austin messenger bag williamsburg. Mustache lo-fi next level master cleanse before they sold out put a bird on it scenester, cosby sweater cliche retro lomo mixtape bicycle rights.” (Via BoingBoing)
