I find myself frequently revisiting my perplexity and amusement that "Skrillex" is a thing, so of course the new Sad Skrillex meme hits a serious sweet spot for me.
In our ongoing quest to provide <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/tag/skrillex/" target="_blank">Skrillex web culture coverage</a> while never actually subjecting ourselves to his music (<a href="http://www.uproxx.com/music/2012/06/skrillex-a-capella-cover/" target="_blank">unless it's sung by a Dutch choir</a>), I'm happy to point everyone to <a href="girlsthatlooklikeskrillex.tumblr.com" target="_blank">Girls That Look Like Skrillex</a>, a <a href="http://lesbianswholooklikejustinbieber.tumblr.com/" target="_blank">Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber</a>-esque Tumblr that collects photos of exactly what you think it collects photos of.
You and me both, Skrillex.
Bonnaroo, the 4th of the HUGE summer music festivals, after Coachella and Jazz Fest but before Lollapalooza, begins tomorrow in Manchester, Tennessee, and ends on Sunday, the 10th.
YouTube comments are <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/webculture/2012/02/horrible-youtube-comments-immortalized-in-web-series/">usually worthless</a>, obviously, but they can provide much needed comic relief when an abortion for the ears <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kmk2EnwRbDE">like this</a> comes along.
Unless Skrillex is <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/webculture/2012/01/moar-kramer-vs-skrillex-videos-plz/" target="_blank">sending Kramer into convulsions</a> or <a href="http://cookingwithskrillex.tumblr.com/post/16650055969" target="_blank">cooking up a mean stir fry on Tumblr</a> he/it doesn't really do it for me.
Just like Kreayshawn, Lana Del Rey, Odd Future and a few others before him, oddly coiffed DJ Skrillex has seemingly come out of no where, propelled by the internet, to suddenly be all over the goddamn place.
In sports, you can't watch Michael Jordan take on Elgin Baylor in their respective primes.
Good afternoon you princes of Maine, you kings of New England, you stalkers of In the offing for today: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/Athena007" rel="author">Athena007</a> set the gas fight scene in Zoolander to Bernard Herrmann's Vertigo score.
Electronic music isn't exactly in my wheelhouse, so the only thing I knew about Skrillex prior to these mashups is that he bares <a href="http://themostmoist.tumblr.com/post/13861283368/skrillex-dj-rosanne-remix" target="_blank">a striking resemblance to DJ from Roseanne</a>.
Most of the time I'm hearing Dubstep, I feel more like <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXADzAGYhEA">a 90-year-old grandfather</a> than I do an open-minded, twenty-something music lover.
Considering everyone from Bobby Ray to Jay-Z are catering their sound around the power of this expanding Dubstep genre, it surprises me <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/xv">Vizzy</a> is the first person I've heard spit over Skrillex's chaotic "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSeNSzJ2-Jw">Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites</a>.
While we wait patiently for the OG <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/too-short">Todd Shaw</a> to drop his umpteenth album and continue laying his mack down for a new generation, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/brenton-duvall">Brenton Duvall</a> is helping bridge the gap in the meantime.
