Shortly after news broke about the Aurora theater shooting at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, Playboy model Tricia Evans tweeted, "I heard the new Batman movie is really 'to die for'! Too soon?" The answer to that question was "definitely" for Deadmau5, an electronic-dance music titan who's a big Colorado favorite. The resulting Twitter back-and-forth reveals plenty about the cultural impact this horrible event is having nationwide.
