Week 23: Pageant of the Transmundane

This was a very contentious week for this award, and I was truly torn between 4 exceptional entries, but in the end, weirdness won out over all else. Some of the candidates knew they were in the race while others were observed unnoticed. I just feel bad in these kinds of weeks that there can be just one winner.

So the 23rd awarding of the Homer Simpson Transmundanity award goes to...

Becca at No Smoking in the Skull cave discovered the music video for The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins by Leonard "I am not Spock" Nimoy. It is a legendarily bad song and I've heard it before, but never before had I witness the spectacle of the video, and that is what really puts it over the top. I don't know if it is his haircut, the surreal dancing or the wardrobe, but it just freaks me out a little too much. I will say this, Leonard Nimoy's face was never meant to be seen upside down singing. Ever.

For showing me something that will give me the creeps until the first of November, I am pleased to award Becca the Homie.


The rules of this little contest: Every week I will be selecting one blog post that I have seen from the vast reaches of the blogosphere to bestow with the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award for being one of the freakiest(in a funny way) things I've seen or read during a 7 day period. It doesn't necessarily have to have been written during the week, I just had to have encountered it. That means that if you find something interesting and repost it like a movie or whatever, if I saw it at your blog first, you get the prize. Of course, creating your own content is also a very good way to win.

Now, if you see a post that you think is worthy of this illustrious prize, just drop me a line at and we'll see if we can't get your suggestion up and award-ready while giving you some credit and a link to your own blog.

Which is worst this song or William Shatner’s ‘Rocket Man’?

I think Rocket man is because you have a frame of reference on that one, because you know how it is supposed to sound.


Listening to two playings the Spock started a little later than the other played at the same time....that is interesting.
