Week 30: Pageant of the Transmundane

Welcome to the wonderful world of Disney... err, rather the dingy world of a Dairy Queen in northern Wichita, KS. It is once again time for the crew of one at Culture Kills to determine who was the most transmundane this week.

There were quite a few viable candidates this week, truth be told, though at the end of the day, it all came down to a strange juxtaposition that I just couldn't forget.

So it was that early this week, Jeremy Barker over at Popped Culture discovered and posted a Brilliant mashup of Requiem for a Dream and Toy Story 2. It is breathtaking how well the two movies synch together. It is a masterful piece of satire, truly it is.

While this award may not be as sweet as a Canadian Blog Award, it still has its charms, and you were more than deserving. So it is that I present you with the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, and as some of the other content of that post had to do with the act of putting things together to make something more complicated, well, the picture just sort of fit really.

Congratulations Jeremy on your first win of this award. Huzzah!

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.

Canadians rule.

I tried using the word "transmundanity" today, but it didn't really work out. But tomorrow is another day.

And Canadians do rule.

Thanks for the award MC, it's been a helluva month! I never expected to land a place in the Transmundane Hall of Fame, but appreciate it greatly.

Your blog has inspired me to keep my own up to date (um, unlike the past few days) and I am happy to find someone else as interested in the minutiae of popular culture.

Ben: we do indeed rule.

Greg: If it was in regards to Devon Dazzle & the Neon Fever, then I don't know how that couldn't work out.

Jeremy: Well, it was a pleasure to award you it this week. :)
