    Welcome back to The Last VJ, music fans. The music video as an art form is as unique and brilliant as it is now once again underground.

    Fan Direction: 5 Great Music-Video Contest Winners

    One of the latest trends I've observed in music is that almost everyone is outsourcing their videos these days, even top artists.

    Secret Broadcast Does It For Kids In "Raygun"

    Houston audiences are tough audiences, no doubt.
