Week 42: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week's award is being broadcast from the deck of the S.S. Heart of Gold, and really nothing could be more Transmundane than that this week, especially when I push this little button.

Now I just have to figure out why there are naked clones of Queen Victoria are throwing figs and what appear to be chinchillas at a platinum statue of William H. Macy while chanting the lyrics to "Thick as a Brick" in Esperanto on the main viewer.

With that startling and frightening image in your minds, the winner of the terrestrial Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award seems like a good place to segue to. Now there were a few entries which were in the running this week but Angela Gunn at Tech Space managed to get a late entry in for this award this afternoon after she found a tasty clip posted at of an alternate take on the new season teaser for HBO's The Sopranos and it tickled the pop cultural archivist in me.

And since it is an award for something based on pop culture and The Sopranos, well, this image seemed to be the most appropriate expression of the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award.

Congrats Angela on nabbing award Number 42. You must admit that it is fitting.

So Long and thanks for all the... how does that go again?

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.

I loved the ‘Head-on’ clip. It works pretty well. Here’s hoping that the last season of The Sopranos will be better than the last few episodes of the season before.

It was all about the kibbles and bits for me.
