I hear ya . I figured I would throw my 2 cents in in case it resonated with some other membersmonolith wrote:I wasn't implying you were jealous of him, but rather everyone one at gearslutz seems to be. I didn't check out his music but watched one of these coffee run videos he has on youtube, seems like an okay guy - he's welcome to beat up Jarre, Emerson and Rudess at least.ninja6485 wrote:I actually saw him in person at the electric run last year in philly. He was about 30 yards or so away, talking to a few people. He had that stupid mask. I think it was a promotional thing for him. Taller than I expected... I had half a mind to introduce myself - just to meet someone famous, you know? - but decided it would be too much effort.monolith wrote:Wow people really hate deadmau5. I thought it was just a gearcuntz jealousy thing. I've never even heard his music before. Synth forums are the only place I even hear mention of him.
As an aside, I certainly don't hate him, and I'm not sure what he has or does that I would be jealous of, without being jealous of everyone that made it famous with synths. Musically my impression coming away from his work is boredom, and the image that he's chosen does not appeal to me. So, naturally, I would encourage Vince Clarke or Yanni to brutaly annihilate him in the battle royale.
Who the f**k is Yanni?
