Fart jokes will never be unfunny. I didn't even know Skrillex was still alive.

Dr. Paul Curtis, who treated Mr. Williams, claims that he’d never before heard someone fart so vigorously. “It was the sort of sound you’d expect a squelchy whoopee cushion the size of a small house to make. By far the strangest sound I’ve ever heard,” claimed the stunned doctor. “I didn’t expect it to go on for so long either. You could actually see the aperture of his anus billowing as the air passed through. It looked like Victoria Beckham talking.”
This image will be with me whenever I hear skrillex's music now.

true or not it's par for the coarse now a days...Major players in the hip hop community are involved in a series of law suits from a music writing duo from years ago. It's the times we live in.Nothing new...

Skrillex is getting sued by Transformers because he used their mating calls and noises without Optimus Prime permission. What a douche.

Re: Skrillex getting sued??

The suit against Skrillex is being brought by 28 year old graphic designer, Ted Williams, from Austin, Texas who claims that Skrillex “knowingly used material that had originally been produced by the claimant” and made monetary gain by passing off that material as his own.

“All the material on my albums or EPs is produced by myself, or in collaboration, or legally sampled,” claimed Skrillex. “This lawsuit is preposterous and I will be doing everything in my power to clear my name.”

Mr. Williams who is also suing Sony Computer Entertainment for their use of the Skrillex track on promotional material for the videogame, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, claims that he made the sound that Skrillex illegally sampled after recording the noise of his own flatulence for 5 full minutes.


I stopped reading at that part.

Very clever Sherlock.
The fact that "Barry Burke" came here especially to post that rang alarm bells over here.

I had never heard of this site until now. The articles are terribly unfunny in my opinion.
