Deadmau5 wants to copyright his mau5head for scientific apparatus, among other things. (Proof of the Higgs-Boson brought to you by “Ghosts N Stuff!”) His copyright case is getting the stinkeye from Disney, whose Happiest Lawyers on Earth note a striking similarity between the mau5 and The Mouse. Seriously though, is Disney even trying to corner the leather goods, staple foods and BMX markets? Presumably all at once with Deadmau5′s edible Huffy, with throwback leather football helmet.
Sometimes “prank” means “thing you do to give your poor, gullible mother a heart attack.” Because hilarity. MGM Grand put together a string of April Fool’s mock weddings at the Forever Grand Wedding Chapel. After getting fake-married, they posted the pics to Facebook and Twitter in order to freak out their closest friends and relatives. Joke’s on you, MGM: They were only in it for the free cake the whole time.
The part of that S.K.A.M. Artist party on Monday that didn’t go all to hell drew in a strong Marquee crowd that saw 40 or so DJs doing 15-30 minute sets in the Boom Box Room and Library–perfect for the attention deficit-afflicted EDM lover. Samantha Ronson had a turn, which just made us miss the old LiLo days. The afterparty at Crazy Horse III was headlined by DJ Skratchy and Aussie model/DJ Brooke Evers.
