Week 44: Pageant of the Transmundane

If it is Tuesday, this must be Belgium... what? It's Friday? Oh, then this must be the Bowery then. Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully the Lizzies don't get me before this awards ceremony is out.

Anyway, this week's winner is the man with the plan... Jess from Apropos of Something, a blog that the judges at Culture Kills have become very familiar with over the past year or so.

And one of the features that makes Apropos of Something so unique is the reinterpretations of old comics for comedic effect, usually while reference other pop cultural forces, and well, seeing as this is also a pop cultural blog, that sort of meshes well with my sensibilities.

And this week, Jess took those icons of the 1980's animation, The Smurfs,and combined them with one of the most iconic movies on the 1990's, Pulp Fiction, to make Smurf Fiction. It is short and sweet... just like a shooter.

And because Jules and Vincent really should have had shotguns for that shit, well, it seems appropriate for the award to reflect that, so it seemed fitting that Homer's wacky invention, the makeup gun would end up as the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week.

Congrats Jess... here is the graphic for winning this week.

And as another three time winner, you also get the Transmundanity Triple Crown. It has been a prolific year for them so far.

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.

Great comic!

I thought so too ;)

I've been about six miles out of the loop lately, so I'm several days late in saying thanks.

So, thanks! :)

I'm glad you enjoyed the comic. I was really torn about whether I should post it or not (I always debate the non-superhero installments of Apropos Comics), so it's nice to get positive feedback.

I tip my hat to you.
