The Unsung Hero of the Pageant of the Transmundane

Whenever the arduous task of choosing a winner of the weekly Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award comes up, I am usually also faced with an equally difficult task: choosing the right image for that week's award. This is especially true when an particular Simpsons image would be the perfect complement to the entry in question.

Of course, it is sometimes difficult to find such an image, but one site has really helped me over the past 57 weeks, and I have been remiss because I have not mentioned them on my blog before.

Last Exit to Springfield, created by Adam Wolf in 1997 features an ungodly amount of screencaps from many episodes of the series, which has allowed me to find those moments that so suit a winning entry. And the domain is Lardlad... gotta love it!

Plus, looking at the screen caps and the other material gathered there brings back a lot of good memories for me, so I also have to thank him for that as well.

And as a sign of my immense respect for the work that Mr. Wolf has done, I am pleased to give him a token of my esteem: The Homer Simpson Transmundanity Hero award.



Without your hard work, the Homeys would have been a much less interesting award. Huzzah!

It is a good thing indeed and long overdue.

The Jeff Milner site used to have a lot of the Simpsons episodes, but he/they pulled them. I just checked it out. Probably a copyright issue?
