Every year I read all the nominees for the Hugo SF award.
They never gave out a Hugo for 1954....until 2004. Our band the Lothars (which is significant because we have had up to 4 theremin players at times, and Ramona and I met when I joined the band) played at Noreascon 2004 for the Retro Hugo Awards Ceremony. We dressed up like 1954 nerds (had to order pocket protectors from some pocket protector website), and played our weird music

...and if you look through the archive there, you will find a picture of me with a full "Side Show Bob" set of dreadlocks (I actually walked around like that)! I've got them saved and hidden so Ramona can't make a voodoo doll!http://www.wobblymusic.com/lothars/LotharsPhotos.php?photo_id=RetroHugos3
I had never heard of "filking" before this event (it's not dirty...but it should be).
