** [[http://deadmau5.tumblr.com/post/19570452553/collaborations-songwritting-and-the-like According to his post about musical collaborations and such]], he likes to read short stories (since he doesn't have enough time to read full-fledged novels). Given the subject matter of songs such as "[[Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu Cthulhu Sleeps]]" and "LiteratureTheVeldt", he seems to enjoy reading {{Cosmic Horror Stor|y}}ies and depressing sci-fi.

A Canadian ElectronicMusic producer and icon, deadmau5 (pronounced "dead mouse") is easily one of the most popular electronic artists today. Getting his professional start in 2006 when he released his first full album, ''Get Scraped'', he is best known for the songs "Faxing Berlin", "I Remember", "Ghosts 'n' Stuff", "Sofi Needs a Ladder", and "Raise Your Weapon", as well as for wearing his epony[[JustForPun mau5]] [[NiceHat mau5head]] during live performances. His stage name comes from an incident in which he found a [[TitleDrop dead mouse]] in his computer while replacing his video card - on the IRC channel he frequented, he became known as "that dead mouse guy" after recounting the incident, and decided to change his username to "deadmau5" as a joke. The name is spelled as it is because of the character limit for names on certain IRC servers (you can only fit eight and "deadmouse" is nine), [[Letters2Numbers with the "5" as the "s" on the end]] because [[RuleOfCool it's cool]].

Real name Joel Zimmerman, he was born on January 5, 1981, and raised in Niagara Falls, Ontario (though he considers his current city of residence, UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}, his hometown). As a child, he had a hobby of tearing apart household electronics to figure out how they worked, which carried over to his later fascination with electronic music production - as opposed to solely using plugins and software to make his sounds (which he derisively calls "laptop music"), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D26U26fFojw he uses huge racks of analog modular CV equipment]] to produce them. After dropping out of high school, doing many odd jobs over the years (including being contracted for an IT job for two years using only his own self-taught computer programming skills), and starting a design business on the side, all while producing music in his free time as a hobby, he found himself being paid to do music for advertising until he got discovered by DJ Chris Lake. This and the appearance of his first hit as deadmau5, "Faxing Berlin", on Pete Tong's radio show led to him being signed onto Ultra Records, later creating his own label, mau5trap, and thus becoming a hit electronic artist doing music full-time.

** Another song, "To Play Us Out", samples the memetically infamous [[TheOReillyFactor Bill O'Reilly]] rant, which the song title derives its name from.
