    Bento that a tough one, how to cook a Bento...hmmm hit the popcorn button and see what you get.

    I just did a quick google search on micowave dj and I found this funny wiki..see below.

    Microwave DJ
    From Ssl-wiki
    Jump to: navigation, search
    A "microwave" DJ is a DJ that became one (or thinks he is one) just because he's got Serato or any other digital software/hardware that lets them manipulate digital media. They think they can become DJ's just like that (microwave fast) and many don't realize they're lacking lots of knowledge that's learned (or earned) from years of experience using conventional dj tools.

    Examples include dust on the needle, cleaning vinyl, calibrating turntables, etc. Simple stuff that becomes common knowledge after a few months on the grind.

    Do not confuse the term "microwave" with technology. The term "microwave" refers to "fast" and nothing more. There's a misconception that DJ's who dislike "microwave" dj's hate technology. We actually embrace it as well. We just use technology to our advantage instead of depending completely on it.

    Why is it bad? It gives hard-working DJ's a bad name. Anyone can play music in front of a crowd. But, there's more skill involved than just pushing PLAY.

    Microwaves are people that use technology to compensate for their lack of Dj skills- Dj Select




    Can a DJ who uses strictly turntables and just plain all serato be a microwave? The answer is yes. Here's how...

    Uses two turntables but plays someone else's mixes. He/she doesn't do any mixing at all. -Sixxx

    @kidfromkibbly:
    I'd look after that cat if I were you. You don't want him to come back home wankered on catnip after every gig.
