    Aside from his music and famous mouse head, Deadmau5 is well known for sharing his uncensored thoughts on fellow musicians, especially those who cheapen or question the integrity of EDM. He certainly doesn't seem to give a "fuq" what others think of him, so it's no surprise that he wouldn't shy away from hanging out with controversial Toronto mayor Rob Ford, the politician best known for getting caught on camera smoking crack.In the latest installment of his "Coffee Run" series, Deadmau5 picks up Ford for a quick trip to a Tim Hortons to get some caffeine in their systems. They cruise around town in Deadmau5's Nyan Cat-themed Ferrari, a.k.a. the "Purrari," and chat like they're old friends.

    Earlier this month, President Warren G. Harding's erotic love letters to his mistress were revealed to the public, prompting SPIN to publish a quiz comparing the 29th commander-in-chief's best lines to the words of "Regulate" rapper Warren G. While the latter implored his Regulators to "mount up," the former beseeched his mistress, Carrie Fulton, to travel to "Mount Jerry," which just happens to be a nickname for his dick. Following our lead, Jimmy Kimmel enlisted Warren G to read some of the steamiest Harding's letters, sitting in a library-like setting next to a painting of Fulton while a slow jam version of "Regulate" played in the background."Honestly, I hurt with the insatiate longing, until I feel that there will never be any relief until I take a long, deep, wild draught on your lips and then bury my face on your pillowing breasts," he said in a stately tone.

    Rob Zombie Rewrites French Revolution for 'Assassin's Creed' Animated Video

    San Diego Comic-Con is well known for its surprises, and while this year's iteration has been dominated by a new photo of Ben Affleck as Batman with his adorable little ears, there's one really cool collaboration that blends the music, comic book, and video game worlds. As a preview for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity, metal legend and horror master Rob Zombie has teamed up with The Walking Dead artist Tony Moore to create an animated film about the French Revolution, which is the setting for the upcoming video game. Given the people involved, it's no shock that the short is visually stunning and crazy bloody. "My partner on the project, poster artist Angryblue, was actually the first on board, and he and New Science reached out to me for someone with more of a story-focused background," Moore tells SPIN, referencing Zombie.

  • Sleepify Vulfpeck Michelle Shocked Spotify hack money paid

    Silent Spotify Silent Album Earns $20,000 and Michelle Shocked Wants a Piece

    Remember Sleepify, the silent album funk band Vulfpeck created for the sole purpose of gaming the Spotify payout system to earn them some cash (and fund a non-silent tour)? Well, it turns out that, despite getting removed from the streaming service after about two months, the scam worked, earning Michigan-born crew in excess of $20,000. It's pretty much the best stupid idea since the Jump to Conclusions Mat.This week, keyboardist Jack Stratton revealed that Sleepify earned $19,655.56 in royalties, a colossal sum considernig they were only getting paid between $0.0030 to $0.0038 per stream, according to Billboard. On top of that, interest in the band led people to check out their other songs, the ones with actual music, bringing in another $1,100 or so.
