Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nunc malesuada, est at varius faucibus, nisl massa suscipit velit, in pharetra nulla neque eu tellus.

Don’t tell me that you haven’t come across with these absurd Latin words? Lorem ipsum text is a placeholder text, used in graphic design to show how a web page/a mock up will look with real words once completed. It derives from sections 1.10.32–3 of Cicero’s De finibus bonorum et malorum and makes no sense at all.

However, it seems that designers and other internet professionals got bored with the classic dummy text and new word generators pop up more and more often. Well, there is a text version for every taste.

Here is the gangsta version:

10 + 1 ways to visualize lyrics

April 18, 2011 § 5 Comments

Really good songs have usually really good lyrics. And good lyrics stay with you. When we were at school we doodled them on our books and carved them into the desks. What do the digital natives do? Here are the best ideas (and, incidentally, really good songs for the most part) we found around the web:

1. Pick a photo, apply a vintage effect and write the lyrics in helvetica

paris by the friendly fires

Paris by the Friendly Fires (the Aeroplane version featuring Au Revoir Simone  kicks major ass, too)

2. Make a flowchart*

should I stay or should I go by the clash

Should I Stay or Should I Go by The Clash
