Week 18: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the dewy fields at the 100th Meridian. Somewhere Ry Cooder is singing my eulogy, but that is another story.

This week's winner is from The Best & Greatest Commercials Ever Made, a blog site whose title is pretty self-explanatory.

A few days ago, a certain ad for Wilkinson Sword razors was posted, and it is one of the best spots I've seen this year, though it goes far beyond the standard 30-60 second boundaries and becomes a mini-narrative in and of itself. The ad is called Fight for Kisses, and I have a feeling that it will soon be popular on those funniest ad shows that pop-up annually.

And because this week's award has to do with an ad for razors, it seemed fitting to award this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award with one of the rarest sights of all: a clean shaven Homer.

Congratulations and to the winner goes the spoils and a nice little image badge for your site.

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.

Hey man, I put you on my blogroll a couple months ago, but I don't get to read this or other blogs very often because my life is so busy right now. Anyway, I figured it'd be a good time to comment. This Homer thing is a good idea. Check out my blog--I've got some wacky stuff on there!

Hey Scott. I totally understand that you haven't had time lately to visit blogs. You've got a lot on your plate. :)
