Don't Fret About the Competition
You think some of the contests you've been to are strange? This one beats the annual hot dog eating contest on Coney Island with ease. The film Air Guitar Nation, which is playing at the Tribeca Film Festival beginning this weekend, documents the Air Guitar Championships, held in Oulu, Finland. We guess that's what the Finns are doing when they can't afford to go skiing.
Air Guitar Nation won the audience award at this years SXSW film festival and was produced by the same team that worked on Project Runway, so you know it should be pretty exciting. Even if Tim Gunn and Michael Kors are lamentably absent from the movie.
As for anyone aspiring to travel the world on the basis of their air guitar prowess, check out the US Air Guitar web site; the next "regional final" will take place in San Francisco on May 11. Keep those fingers limber in the meantime.
