Deadmau5 Passed Over For Wall Of Fame Slot, The Landscape Architecture Of Oakes Garden Theatre Gets It Instead

The Niagra Falls Review reports that Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, got passed over for the Niagara Falls Arts & Culture Wall of Fame this year, beat out by the Landscape Architecture of Oakes Garden Theatre.

“I got my ass kicked by a bunch of fucking plants?” responded Zimmerman.

City Councillor Janice Wing says she was “outraged” to learn that Deadmau5 could be overlooked for the Wall of Fame not once, but twice. She’s questioning whether the process to get on the Wall of Fame is “fair and unbiased.

“If this isn’t bias, I don’t know what it is,” she says. “Other than sheer ignorance, perhaps.”

This year’s inductees are Diana Coatsworth, Honeymoon Suite, Bob McAdorey, Brian Smylski, Frank Shuster and the landscape architecture of Oakes Garden Theatre.

  1. Why do people think that award commitees have to be fair and unbiased? It starts with the definition of what one considers to be “arts and culture” or “fame.” Perhaps one could argue that a person who seems to think he is entitled to receive an award is not the kind of person that one should actually give said award. Mr Zimmerman’s reaction seems kind of immature to me. Maybe he’s just not quite old enough yet (for the commitee to even consider him). Polly will probably get his cracker some day.

  2. If given the choice, I’d rather spend time at the Oaks Garden Theater than listening to Deadmau5. And as for his comments, there is a lot more diversity and interest in “a bunch of fucking plants” than in Deadmau5′s over-used kick/snare one-trick-pony show.

    Go over compress something, Joel, and stop whining like a baby because everyone on the planet doesn’t love you.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 4 Thumb down 9
  3. It’s also worth noting that an even more famous native of Niagra Falls didn’t get into the Wall until last year; someone whose accomplishments over the past 20 years absolutely shit on anything Joel’s ever done in his life. His name? James Cameron.

    Give it time, Joel. It’ll happen eventually.

  4. It’s pretty clear that Deadmau5 doesn’t take himself too seriously. He’s joking about getting his ass kicked by a bunch of plants, not “whining like a baby because everyone on the planet doesn’t love you”.

    All the hate reflects more on you than anybody else.

  5. i literally LOL’d at this article… Deadmau5 needs a stronger lobbying force it seems… Or he can continue to not give a shite about such things as I’m sure every person in their right mind did when reading about this. Laff =P
