JJNN Sunday: Leftovers - 04

Welcome again to JJNN for Sunday August 24th, 2008. Today we will be taking about true entertainment.

Every year around this time of year people in the music industry sit up and take notice. It's not a new singer or drummer they are looking for, but a new guitarist. Well...not exactly. Actually, every year around this time of year is the world air guitar championships. There is really nothing more entertaining than watching a guy with nothing in his hands run around a stage and pretend that he is playing the guitar.

For the last two years (2006 and 2007) the champion has been Japanese. His name is Ochi Yosuke and he is from a comedy duo called Dainoji. Personally, I don't see anything special in his comedy, but he really knows how to run around with a pretend guitar. This was his performance at last years air guitar championships.

Unfortunately, this year Ochi Yosuke could not get his 3rd championship in a row. He ended up in 6th place this year. Another Japanese person named Ichikawa The Rock ended up in 4th place. All in all a good turn out of Japanese people in an international championship.

Any way, it is now time for the word of the day. Today's word is 逃す(のがす). It is pronounced nogasu and means to miss out on something. Maybe one day I will how to play air guitar.

That's it for today. See you next time at JJNN.
