Ok, let's say you're not the coolest kid in class. And lets say women do not find you "conventionally" attractive. What's a guy to do? In the old days, you would have had to avail yourself of plastic surgery, make your first million before age 30 or buy a Porsche. Thankfully, those days are over.

The new cool has something to do with taking other people's music, putting it on your iPod and showing up to a club in your nearest metropolitan hot zone. You plug into the house speakers, give Lady Gaga's latest a little mix, and let it fade seamlessly into whatever other mindless crap is big on the radio at the moment. And you do it all with a vodka tonic in one hand and some girl's booty in the other.

"But wait!" you'll say. "Is it really that easy, Mr Sessionville? Can I really have wine, women and song with just a snap of my fingers?" Well, the answer is: kinda.

Once you decide that being a DJ is your next best vocation, hobby and/or distraction, the next thing you'll need is some basic gear to get the ball rolling. Thankfully, the peeps over at TheDJPodcast.com have some simple advice to get you from point A to point B (making music and getting laid) faster than you can say "Hey baby, I'm DJ Chunky Peanut Butter. How about a ride in my Porsche?"

Upon reading the article, you'll note that most people spend way too much money on this kind of thing. And all you really need is a mixer, software and some sort of digital hardware. Oh, and taste. Taste would be a good thing to have here.
