This was supposed to post yesterday before Tumblr had a mental breakdown. Nonetheless, an extremely warm welcome to Sonny and his team to the magical world of Tumblr C: There are now aliens amongst us.
This is Seph, posting on Colin’s behalf.
It’s been over one year since this blog came into existence on November 5th, 2011 and the holidays are rapidly approaching. I’d like to take this moment to thank you all from the deepest depths of my soul for being the FUCKING AMAZEBALLS IN THE VOICE OF SONNY MOORE, absolutely skrilliant fans that you are.
For all the love you’ve given to Colin and myself. For all the love for Sonny you’ve shared with us both.
In gratitude and in spirit of Colin, I may post one or two things on here in the near future.
Also, here’s a little story about how the blog you all know and love came to be:
THIS BRILLIANT BLOG BEGAN ONE CHILLY EVENING IN NOVEMBER, 2K11. Many [insertfandomhere]things blogs were abundant at the time and were a growing trend. Colin had sent a few suggestions to one which we shall not name, only to be absolutely appalled that they gave all the credit for his ideas to themselves. Relaying the situation to me in a typical sassy Colin fashion and speaking of how he should make his own, I suggested: FUCK YES DO IT RIGHT NOW.
And we did.
Chain smokin’ nicotine, say fuck a fast deal, we got dat white gurl so we make those Skrill checks, fuck a white girl, talk ill neck karate chop her grill, bitch I kill, born from the center of a storm, all the boys flappin’ gums about how they hard, bitch I’m harder, martyr to the swag on the corner, beat your girl up with the drums as the
GO ON AN KEES DEE GURL
This has become my favorite Skrillex song, for sure.
Pfft, I’ve smoked since I was like 13 or 14. He’s an adult and I think he should be left alone to make his own smoking, drinking and dating decisions without being berated by his fans.
I don’t know, recently I’ve realized, with it coming out that Sonny is dating Ellie Goulding and that he smokes weed, some people in the fandom seem to have this image of an adorable little cartoon Skrillex jumping around in their head playing with balls of wool and dancing on clouds and asking where babies come from, and they don’t want to be made to think anything else of him.
The fact of the matter is that Sonny is a 24 year old man and of course he’s experimented with drugs, with drinking and with sex. I think it’s a little sad that there are people who refuse to accept that he’s with Ellie, people who insult her because they don’t want him to be with her.
I’m so proud of Sonny, of who he is, what he’s made of himself and how he’s stayed so true to himself and so grounded over the incredible journey of his career. There are far worse things he could be doing than smoking weed and having sex, just sayin’.
Skrillex’s latest release. I’ve been waiting for the studio version of this song for a long time and now it’s finally here, and it’s amazing! Just in time for 4/20 too c;
Other than the fact that the woman who BIRTHED him was a Mexican, you’re right. None at all.
Sonny used to use the name “Skrillex” online, he had it tattooed on his bottom lip at one point, then he started producing music under it.
The sample from Rock ‘n Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain) is from a cab driver who used to be really friendly with Sonny and his tour manager Roadhog since they were way younger.
Captain Ahab passed away, but Sonny had a message he’d left on his phone of him talking about his manager, Tim Smith (“will take you to the mountain”) and then shouting “Right on! Rock ‘n Roll!" When Captain Ahab passed away, Sonny sampled the phone message and put it into his track.
There’s a picture of Captain Ahab at the end of the Rock ‘n Roll video saying “You will be missed." at the end.
just in case you needed to know…
