In the latest turn of events as the internet war rages on between Deadmau5, and well, everyone, A Guy Called Gerald has issued a bizarre rant at the worlds second most famous mouse (Mickey obviously being the first). The tirade in on AGCG's blog goes as follows:
'I know who you are. You are some record company or failed journalist asshole left over from the last century who is jealous of the way electronic music is working in this brave fast new century. The only button you and people like you are interested in pushing is a nuke for the Palestinians. You come into our system that we have nurtured for the last 25 years, trick hardworking people into giving you their money, con honest promoters, take large sums of money out of the system and then spit back into our faces that YOU are tricking everyone. I agree there are loads of people like you who do fake it. It is easy with the software you are using. Don’t worry we are going to find ways of stopping you. You greedy rat head fuck.'
Aside from calling Deadmau5 'a greedy rat head fuck' it would seem that the online community for the most part are left rather puzzled by A Guy Called Geralds 'nuke for the Palestinians' comment and also for that matter, who owns the 'system' and who exactly will be 'stopping' Deadmau5. Deadmau5 has responded with the comment that AGCG is 'an ignorant fuck'. The mau5 seems unphazed by it all saying 'I have a cat a studio, all the music making gear I need and some lovely fans, and as irrelevant as I'll become, I'll like live out the rest of my days... living comfortably as a non descript musician. Wow I'm really doomed here, watch me laugh it off while it happens, continuing what I love to do'
