2012 Pegasus Awards Online Final Ballot Is LIVE

Another excellent crop of nominees. I am flattered and humbled to be included on this year's ballot, and thank all of you out there who suggested "Divine Irregularity" for Best Gaming Song.

Now, go vote for Juanita for "Chess". < /ballot stuffing >

Voted! I picked your song for Best Gaming. I have to admit there were some tough choices. I understand the reason for Chess, but there were other strong candidates.

For my own ballot stuffing, I liked "Play it with Moxie" because they do filk as jazz and I haven't heard it done this well before.

I'll try and spread the word.

Drive save this weekend
Also can you link to why Chess deserves to when, so we can refresh our memory?

Dude. Just look at the words, listen to the sample. The song is epic, in every sense of the word.

I thought there was a story behind about how it was nominated a bunch of times yet never won. That's what I was referring to.

But strangely enough despite my filk collection (which I think is pretty good) I haven't heard of this song before now. Maybe I should think twice before doing a filk podcast. But it's not like there's a place I can go to learn its history and all that.

Or is there......
