I am sorry to say I am not going to OVFF this year.

There are multiple reasons including, the budget and starting a new job. (No, I won't be making to to Windycon this year either.)

Because I won't be there in person I have sent in my Online Pegasus Ballot If you consider yourself a Filker, and haven't voted yet Today is the last day to vote.

I have now submitted my Pegasus Nominations. Pegasus is an award for excellence in Filking. If you consider yourself a filker you are welcome to nominate.

Now that the Pegasus Ballots are Open I want to share some thoughts on the Best Performer Category. I am not going to campaign on behalf a specific filker, but there is something I want people to consider in their nominations this year.

The filk community is blessed with a wealth of talented performers, as we can see from both the past winners and 63 suggestions on the brainstorming poll. With so many talented people we tend to focus on the singers; however there are many filkers who perform without singing. Some play woodwind, some play brass, there are those who play stringed instruments, and those who play percussion. They add that something extra to the already awesome song.

So I am suggesting this year when you nominate people for Best Performer, consider the musicians who support the singers.

Why Not?
Time to start thinking about the Pegasus Brainstorming Poll, where you really can "vote early, vote often"

There have already been three Filk Cons this year and many general cons with filk.
Is there some person or song that impressed you?
Is there a suggestion you meant to make last year but missed the deadline?

The Categories this year are:
(as always)
Best Filk
Best Classic Filk
Best Composer/Songwriter
Best Performer
(and the Floating Categories this year are...)
"Baddest-Ass Song"
"Most Romantic Song"

The Online Ballot is open. The deadline is 12:01AM Pacific Daylight Time, Saturday, 07 May, 2011
maverick_weirdo: (Default)
The Pegasus Ballot is out for those in the filk community who wish to vote, but do not plan on attending O.V.F.F. (Those attending O.V.F.F. may vote at the con.)

Congratulations to all those nominated.

I am not going to say who I did nominate (I'm also not going to rant here about the nominations I made which didn't make the list, tempting as it may be.) My expectations are not high because I try to look for "dark horse" canidates to nominate. What I will say is how many of my nominations made the cut.

Best Filk Song: 0 out of 5 of my nominations
Best Classic Filk: 3 out of 5 of my nominations
Best Performer: 2.5 out of 5 of my nominations
Best Composer: 2 out of 5 of my nominations
Best Magic Song: 1 out of 5 of my nominations
Best Mad Science Song: 2 out of 5 of my nominations
