U.S. Man Rocks the Air Guitar World Championships!


This news is so fantastically funny to me for a variety of reasons. Firstly, air guitar. Secondly, air guitar world championships. Third: air guitar world championships in Finland. Finally, the champion this year is an American dude! Craig "Hot Lixx Hulahan" Billmeier beat out the two-year reigning champion, Japan's Ochi "Dainoji" Yosuke, for this year's top title. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

Most hilarious, however, is this brief BBC News video about the championships in which a droll newscaster explains that in air guitar, "Long hair is optional, but jumping around and feverishly finger-picking at an imaginary guitar is not. Headbanging is in, but make sure your headband is secure. You don't have to get undressed, but the crowds seem to like it."

To watch the winning air guitar performances by our very own Hot Lixx,

I might like this video better, however; it's from the national championships earlier this month. Backward somersaults! Front flips into the crowd! Such showmanship.

I know this guy. He played in a local punk band a few years back called Love Songs and is very close with an ex-boyfriend of mine. All around cool dude, to be honest. He drives disabled people to their doctor's appointments. Born and raised in the bay area, in fact.
