Week 16: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the warm embrace of Las Palmas in the Canary Islands. It is once again time to hand out some recognition for some mighty find transmundanity.

In my travels around the internet this week, I discovered a post at the Roadside Scholar featuring the artistic photography of Terry Border.

Terry did something that most of our mother's told us to stop doing when we were 10-11... played with his food, but unless some of the unholy messes we made when were were kids, his creations are whimsical and wiry. Literally.

I should also mention Terry's site, Bent Objects, as well, and offer him a share of this award.

And to celebrate this week's award, I thought an image of Homer Simpson with a great deal of food was in order, though we all know that he eats like a bird, so finding such a thing is truly an Herculean task. Oh wait, he is as ravenous as a flock of seagulls, so I guess it was a lot easier than I thought. And thus another Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. Huzzah!

Congratulations to the Roadside Scholar and Terry Border. Feel free to use the following badge to celebrate your win.

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 want to thank you for the award. I have no idea how to make that button work, but it's appreciated anyway!

Terry, it was a pleasure to give it to you. The badge is just a simple .gif image, and if you want, I can drop you an email with it as an attachment if you want to put it on your page.
