This how-to for beginning VJs is probably… not ideally where you want to start

VJ communities on social media today have been puzzling over a wiki on “How to Become a Popular Vj.” Get ready for the knowledge. Some advice is just vague – “What is your favorite music?” “Make business cards.” And of course something about clip libraries Then the technical advice is where things really go off the rails.
