In 2012, everything is artisanal, and everyone’s a foodie. The latest epicurious celebrity crossover? Skrillex, the dubstep DJ/hipster icon—the Rapunzel of the spinning set.

How did he get on the list? Cooking with Skrillex, a new Tumblr that must surely rank high on the list of pointless yet amusing and endlessly scrolling blogs.

Very high.

While most of the images are straight-up photoshop goofs, there is the occasional pointed commentary. Skrillex is a polarizing figure, in the booth or in the kitchen, and not everyone contributing can be said to be a fan.

The man doesn’t look as if he’s consumed anything that doesn’t come from a package, foil bindle, or capsule in the last decade, but the energetic photoshops of him flipping pizza, brandishing a ketchup bottle in front of an adoring throng, wokking with Yan, or staffing a Burger King give a different impression.

Then again, there’s this one.
