Eric "Mean" Melin took second in U.S. Air Guitar's national championship Saturday night in Los Angeles. Melin fell one-tenth of a point short of Lt. Facemelter in the finals. (Take a look back at Melin's L.A. adventure in this slideshow via the LA Weekly.) But this doesn't mark the end of Melin's air-guitar journey.

In a blog post on his Scene Stealers movie site, Melin writes that he's bought a flight to Oulu, Finland, so he can compete in the dark horse competition - a last ditch effort to get into the Air Guitar World Championships.

Melin leaves Tuesday. As you can imagine, a last-minute flight to Finland is pretty pricey. So Melin is selling Mean Melin T-shirts to help pay for the trip. If you're feeling generous, you can click this link to donate to Melin's air-guitar dream.
