Despite having only just unveiled his new live show set-up at the Veld Music Festival in his home town of Toronto, Deadmau5 - In a typical Zimmerman fashion - has taken to his blog to announce that he's taking some time out for a while because he's, "basically pretty miserable right now".
The post reads:
"So heres whats happening. im going to unplug for a wee bit. which doesnt mean im cancelling any upcoming shows or anything, im just gunna slam on the breaks for a bit and force myself to endure some quiet time. in that time, obviously the gears will still be moving, ill still be writing, and the releases will still come out (heads up for something crazy real soon like) and yeah.
I got a lot of work to do on some stuff. so, best i just chill the fuck out a bit and just get it done, and get it done RIGHT, until im 100% satisfied with it. Then our regularily scheduled program shall continue. but yeah, im basicly pretty miserable right now and need to pull the fuck back and figure out whatever the fuck it is i do."
So whilst taking some time out you're still releasing music, playing live shows, and basically doing what you were doing before, right Joel? That's not really taking time out. You just wanted to publicly tell people that you're miserable to get some sympathy, didn't you? Poor little cherub.
