Rule of Three

Fashion, culture, food, design. All told in bite-size threes.

A Fresh Take on Lorem Ipsum

To all the designers out there, sick of the same old boring Lorem Ipsum for placeholder copy, here are three new twists on the old classic.

Hipster Ipsum
A little dose of hipster ‘tude with your Lorem Ipsum. Think obscure art references, anything “local,” and an insufferable allegiance to all things retro. 

Sample // Cosby sweater authentic jean shorts hella, mcsweeney’s wes anderson portland shoreditch keytar Austin VHS banksy dreamcatcher direct trade semiotics. Mixtape locavore craft beer high life, trust fund typewriter swag truffaut ethical. Messenger bag pickled narwhal fap. Post-ironic banh mi photo booth wolf vinyl freegan, next level thundercats cosby sweater. Dreamcatcher polaroid stumptown synth forage. Whatever messenger bag +1 vegan raw denim. Retro kogi blog truffaut shoreditch.

Cupcake Ipsum
Yummo! Good for appealing to clients with a sweet tooth. Steer clear if they’re an insane dieter, super health nut, or counting calories of any kind. 

Sample // Muffin pudding sugar plum I love I love gummies gingerbread applicake. Bear claw dessert wafer liquorice pie brownie. Halvah wypas candy candy canes. Toffee applicake jelly beans chocolate bar pie. I love cotton candy carrot cake ice cream. I love I love croissant tart dessert applicake topping cotton candy. Jelly I love marzipan wafer lemon drops bear claw. I love cotton candy pie pie bear claw applicake sesame snaps jelly beans. Croissant brownie cotton candy. Danish sweet bonbon jelly-o.

*NOTE: The next one may not be safe for work, depending on how many f-bombs you drop at the water cooler.*

Samuel L. Ipsum
This is one badass mo-fo text generator. But, then again, Sammy J. is one badass mo-fo.

Sample // Look, just because I don’t be givin’ no man a foot massage don’t make it right for Marsellus to throw Antwone into a glass motherfuckin’ house, fuckin’ up the way the nigger talks. Motherfucker do that shit to me, he better paralyze my ass, ‘cause I’ll kill the motherfucker, know what I’m sayin’?

A Cupcake Vending Machine

Remember the last time you broke up with your boyfriend at 3:00am and needed the warm embrace of refined flour and sugary icing? Or the last time you decided to throw an impromptu birthday party at midnight? Or really just the last time you had a sugar craving outside of regular business hours? Well if you live in Beverly Hills, there’s now a solution! Sugar-fiend favourite Sprinkles, has put in a 24-hour cupcake vending machine.

CUPCAKE. VENDING. MACHINE. Three words I never thought would pair up, but now that I’ve seen them combined, can never be separated in my head again. The machine will deliver freshly baked cupcakes on demand and will be restocked daily with a variety of new cupcake flavours. The cupcake ATM already has its own Facebook page, and something tells me it will also soon have a legion of in-person followers, at all hours of the day.
