Come on dude. This is the internet. This is what we do. You call the hate "pathetic" but I'm sure you've said similar things about various artists on the forum. Truth is most of us "haters" are just some bored cunts killing time at work by talking about things we like, things we don't like, things we think are overrated, and whatnot.
If this thread annoys you for some reason, then do not post in it. If you disagree with us, then say so, or maybe start a Skrillex support thread. But coming in here and calling our jolly non-serious good time "pathetic" isn't any better than what we're doing.
i.e. just this morning a coworker who nows I clown on schrillechs sent me a link to one of his wiki pics (apologies if it's already been posted) and told me to note the caption. chuckle.
Also this morning, a friend of mine facebook pointed out this pic posted by jared leto
clearly this shit is all over the place for many of us, even if it's not in your life, we're not pissed about it, it's a joke.
it looks like YOU are the only here who is ultimately so cranky about it that you feel the need to bother people who are goofing around.
It's a fucking tragedy that this tread somehow "took away from people actually admiring the bands they [you] like".
Really we're all very broken up about that. It sucks that this thread is ruining your fun and making you enjoy music less.
Nobody is coming here to talk about your precious San Diego bullshit because of THIS THREAD! wow, that's amazing. Why dont you bump your favorite threads instead of this one?
I'm going to think about that some more later.
and btw you'll know when I bait you. This isn't baiting. you're desperate to talk about this clearly.
So this guy cant hate on you guys for hating on Skrilldo? Who's the joke really on here anyway?
Question to WhyTheLongFace -
Why does all this hate bring you to the point where you need to argue with people if you aren't a Skrillex fan? I mean, if it's simply to play devil's advocate, have at it. Otherwise, I don't get why you're getting emotional here.
I mean, this IS the Coachella message board. This isn't very surprising at all. Let's have a constructive debate here - Go start another Aerosmith thread and educate us on their impact on arena rock and why they should headline Coachella.
He uses a motion capture robot image of himself now...
Great. Less DJing, more posing/waving arms. This has Sahara 2012 headliner written all over it, unfortunately.
Hmm, wonder if i can make his robot friend's ears bleed too...:thu
i think the robot is actually doing more work up there.
I didn't know Skrillex was such a fan of Dj Hero.
Well that video confirms he does not do ANYTHING but press play and attempts to mock play finger pad and shake his arms like he's in the crowd.
Now in defense if skrilladiddlefiddle, I remember at EDC 09 on Friday, there was a DJ playing his itunes, literally. A song would end, and there would be a pause, then a new song would start from the beginning. No mixing what so ever. Same stage as Boyz Noise around 8/9pm.
Those in the LA area interested in making a survey piece involving skrillex, please PM me, please note your dancing abilities if any.
Korn feat Skrillex
DURRR DURRR DURRRRR DURRRRRRRRRRRR DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR DERP
HAHAHAHA! You all were just referenced on The Guardian (which was reprinted by The Daily Swarm)
Is Skrillex the most hated man in dubstep?
As Skrillex, Sonny Moore has infiltrated the US charts and remixed Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. Joe Muggs meets the man the underground loves to loathe
Sonny Moore is one happy dude. Sitting on the roof of his UK record label's office with a mid-afternoon Jack Daniel's and Diet Coke in one hand, and a scuffed BlackBerry in the other, he's full of the joys of life. Moore is glad to be catching up with friends in London, excited about the festival he's playing the next day, and stoked about unveiling a new video he hopes "is going to blow some minds". This isn't in a manic way, either – he's relaxed and lucid. He just seems happy.
Which is encouraging, but perhaps a little incongruous given that, as Skrillex, Moore has become dubstep's most hated producer in certain quarters of the internet. One thread on the messageboard for Coachella festival, entitled "I never realised how horrible Skrillex was until now" managed to accumulate 1,485 posts. Evidently, many fans of an underground UK genre have not taken kindly to a Los Angeleno Korn fan who dresses like an emo kid, and who used to be the singer for the screamo band From First to Last, taking dubstep to daytime radio and the pop charts.
Nevertheless, Moore is riding a spectacular wave of success. And for all those who hate him, there are many more who adore his music. Barely three years since he reinvented himself as Skrillex, he is the figurehead for the current unprecedented explosion of electronic dance music – including a high-sugar, hyperactive version of dubstep – into the middle American mainstream...
we've hit the big time!!
BTW, SKRILLEX is NOT horrible he is the NEW RAVE GENERATION
Read that article. Dude is on the cover and the article is as more about the explosion of EDM in America more than it is about him, and I can see why - there is no depth to the man or his bleep/bloopy music.
TRANSLATION: I produce bullshit with no soul for the sole purpose of catering to the lowest common denominator because, I too, have no soul. WAHHHH I WAS ADOPTED!Quote:
"I don't even try to make 'dubstep'," he says, lifting his hands to make air-quotes. "It's just another tempo and rhythm that I work in, because it makes people go wild."
What a chumpy article.
This is Skrillex' fault
NOT THE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!
I feel like we won a battle in the fight for decent music.
I love weetabix
I asked my students to write a myth and one of the characters in a story was called Skrillex. When a trend reaches junior high, it is doomed.
omg please reprint the myth here!
