UPDATE: deadmau5 said today via Twitter that progress on his 45,000-square-foot studio complex has been halted due to a population of rare blue-spotted salamanders residing behind his house.

of all things... pwnd by a blue spotted salamander lol... ill just build a studio inside the hosue then, no biggie.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) December 10, 2014
He and his Twitter fans had a few laughs at the expense of the small amphibian:
i will find them. and interbreed them with wolves.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) December 10, 2014
He also considered another approach:
i could, however, start a salamander sanctuary instead? 5$ admission sound cool? come see my awesome salamanders.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) December 10, 2014
But he reassured fans that the studio is still happening.
More on this as it develops.
@deadmau5 I'm insanely curious to know what publication will call your tweets about salamanders insensitive in one way or another 😐— Zwill (@EAZwill) December 10, 2014
Oh, pardon us; we almost forgot–how insensitive, bla bla bla, so on, and so forth.
deadmau5 is building a new 45,000 square foot studio complex for “actual musicians,” according to a recent Twitter post.

As far as his comment about “actual musicians” is concerned, we spoke to Joel first hand and gained a little extra information about the upcoming complex–it will be a “production facility for a bit of everything.”
The complex will be situated next to deadmau5′ new $5 million mansion located in a remote area outside of Toronto.
