Zen and the Art of Airness*

Air today, gone tomorrow.

The winner of the U.S. Air Guitar regional competition in Brooklyn rocked so hard during a daredevil performance that doctors had to amputate a toe she broke during the gig. Full story.

Look for me to compete in the 2010 US Air Guitar Championships.

*Airness is defined as the extent to which a performance transcends the imitation of a real guitar and becomes an art form in and of itself. Airness is the most difficult to define, yet the most decisive of all the criteria of judging an official air guitar contest. The other criteria are technical merit and stage presence.
