For a writer, words are a special thing. We like to read them, write them, make them up (pwnage, anyone?), expound on their meaning, spell them pourly, pretend we know how to put the bigger ones in context, and we really like to degrade them (Yo brosef, that whip be ma steez = vomit). But what we LOVE… what we love is to look at them.
And now a website has given us a super sweet way to do just that.
Wordle is a website designed around creating Word Clouds. You paste a bunch of random words or phrases into a text box, hit “Go” and watch as the site makes art of words. You can customize font, color and layout. It’s pretty much the best thing since ever.
Especially for a narcissist. Check it:
Suh dash wheat.
Here are a few others I created for your viewing pleasure:
A Star Wars one (where effing Lucas takes all the credit).
Celebritards Are Colorful.
Action Stars (in “Gunplay” font, obvs).
Fiona Apple’s loquacious sophomore album title (“When the Pawn…”)
A little Idol Season Seven Cloud For Ya.
Of course my boy Keanu gets one.
And my favs Wordles, the horizontal and vertical Trainspotting “Choose” speeches.
h/t to Pop Candy for the original Wordle drop.
