The First Annual SUPER TRANSMUNDANE awards

Well, it looks like this is going to be a busy week for handing out awards and badges. I had announced that today was going to be the day that I gave out the annual Transmundanity Awards, and I've already given out 5 Thinking Blogger Awards on Monday.

Now, I was going to go totally democratic with this process, but after seeing some of the debacles that other blogging awards have generated, I reconsidered and decided to use the same process I've employed the past 52 weeks of being the sole judge of this contest.

So on with the show!

Best First Half entry: Ringing the Otter's Stickman and Cindy (week 24). Arthbard made a cartoon... and a good one at that. It was the first and only original cartoon that won an award from me this year, and when it came back to awards season, well, I had to recognize it once more.

Best Second Half Entry: Pointless Drivel- Mr. Fab vs. the Banana(Week 29). How could any other entry win the award for the second half... as it literally represents what transmundanity is and has become the longest running joke of this contest now.

It is the pinnacle of achievement of not only its half of the year but unsurprisingly *opens envelope* ...

Best Original Video: Mr. Fab vs. the Banana. It is the gold standard... and future award winners will be judged against it. It is that profound and disturbing.

Best discovered video: The Buckner game as recreated with RBI Baseball as found by Cinerati (week 9). I appreciate the amount of work that went into this particular mashup, and I have never seen it on any other blog so it is a relatively unique find, and one that stayed with me for 43 weeks.

Best Movie Parody/Mashup video: Burbanked- (Week 36) Tom Hanks is James Bond- A well edited, funny and inventive video that I first saw at Burbanked. It made a lasting impression.

Weirdest Product: My Secret Underground Society (Week 7)- Michele found stuffed plush recreations of pee and poo. Need I say more?

Best in Text transmundanity: Mattress Police (week 33) An original creation from Diesel, which was a series of cover letters from an applicant in the Star Wars universe looking for work with various factions throughout the galaxy. It is classy and priceless.

Special Honor: The Krusty the Clown Award for Transmundane Self-Promotion: Maven from Welcome to the Sanctum Santorum: Maven fought for her awards... she put her name in so many times, and really, I have to respect that. She just wanted that Transmundanity Triple Crown so bad and she fought for it at one time on a weekly basis.

Congratulations to all the winners! You truly were Super Transmundane.

I am honored and humbled. I shall display them with pride until the time when I am strapped for cash and have to put them up on eBay.

MC said...

Well, I don't know how much someone would pay for one, truth be told.

It's Me... Maven said...

It's just an honor to be CONSIDERED for the awards/s!

I do hope, MC, that in my attempts to draw your attention to something I found particularly funny, that you'd continue to visit my site:)

PS: Is now a good time to draw your attention to the "Tampon Tazer" I discovered recently?

That is, I humbly accept this prestigious award with a picture of Homer eating money in the name of ... Er, whassisname ...? That guy people accept things in the name of ...? Oh, yeah ... Santa Claus.

This one's for you, Kringle!

MC said...

Maven: Have I left yet? ;)

Arthbard: And I see you've been doing more work on your craft as well.

Of course, Pere Noel is a fickle master.

My seventh grade algebra teacher told me I'd never amount to anything. As did my guidance counselor. And my scout master. And that janitor at the butcher shop. And my mommie.


Thanks for the award, MC - I'm proud and pleased.

Like the janitor at the butcher shop had anything to brag about...
