Deadmau5: "Ultra's Same Thing Every F#$%ing Year...When's It Going to Be Played Out?"

We thought the whole Deadmau5 vs. Ultra Music Festival thing had been resolved?
Back in December 2011, the King Rat (a repeat Ultra headliner) kicked off a largely one-sided feud by posting a YouTube rant that slammed the festival for its high ticket prices, exclusivity contracts, and doing the "same fucking thing every year."
Unsurprisingly, the Mau5 sat out last year's UMF, perhaps in protest. But then two months ago, it was revealed that he'd be returning to Ultra in 2013. And so, it seemed as thought the beef had been squashed.
Apparently not, though. Because in a new Vibe cover story, Deadmau5 gets back to bashing the fest, bitching (again) that "Ultra is the same thing every fucking year."

Umm, isn't it ironic that the Mau5 complaining about UMF being repetitive while saying the same fucking thing he did last year?
Yeah ... But he does have a few new points. Like, he's bored with Ultra being superlitigious.
"I mean every time I say something about fucking Ultra," the DJ complains, "that fucking dude calls us up, fucking bitches us out -- 'Argh, I'm going to sue you.'
