Week 26: Pageant of the Transmundane

As promised, there is an award ceremony this week. Huzzah!

In the past, I've recognized a steampunk rendition of an ordinary, everyday item for this award, and this week, once again, that motif has carried the day.

You see, SamuraiFrog was sent a particular image and he happened to post it this week over at Electronic Cerebrectomy, and it just caught my fancy.

I have never been a huge fan of the series, Dr. Who, however, when I saw this darling little version of a Deadly Dalek, done up as a 19th century contraption, how could I say no?

And because it is steampunk, well, the Homer Simpson as a Victorian image seemed the most appropriate.

And of course, there is the customary badge to go along with this 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.

Hot damn! A second Transmundane Award! Finally! Er, I mean, awesome!

Seriously, thanks. I'm greedy and love awards. And I love when people see something they like on EC.

Where the heck do you get these Simpsons images? Do you have the entire library and just take screenshots or what? There's no way you find these all with Google image search.

SF: Well, you have my email address... you can submit things for my consideration you know ;)

Diesel: Well, I get a lot of them from Lardlad, but I can be very creative when it comes to getting a picture that I really want for the awards.
