Mayor Carolyn Goodman has officially proclaimed January 2nd 2012 “deadmau5 Day” in the city of Las Vegas. Joel posted on facebook: “It’s deadmau5 day in Nevada. So I’m going to Nevada.”
Jesse Waits, from XS, stated: “The following for deadmau5 is phenomenal, and I applaud Mayor Goodman for recognizing both his remarkable persona alongside his ability to drive visitor traffic from fans traveling across the globe to experience his live sets.”

Once finished, it was back to LA, to “GET SHIT DONE“. Within 48hrs, Joel managed to:
Play at the VGAs, get a signature on his arm from Shigeru Miyamoto, have said signature “permanently etched” to said arm, send management on wild goose chase after his PS Vita, meet a PartyPanda, swoop into Palladium to see Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s show, hang with friends Steve Duda and SeaNanners, oh and wrestle with Hulk Hogan. Never a dull day for the mau5.
