Week 33: Pageant of the Transmundane

This week's winner sort of puts a cap on the whole Christmas season for me. I think at this point, this post also represents the closest two awards ceremonies have been in terms of posts between them. But the break has done me well, and I hope the holidays have been at least bearable for most of you.

But with that digression aside, it is time to get on with the show.

I was truly messed up by this week's Christmas themed winner, but that's what made it so compelling. You see, there is this guy named Rob Sheridan who runs Rob's SketchBlog, which is a really cool portfolio blog. Anyway, he decided to show what his Christmas Card looked like this year, and well, it is something you truly have to see. It is both so awesome and so shocking, it is a think of macabre beauty.

And since it is a Christmas related winner, well, Homer Simpson stuck in a Chimney in a red suit seemed the most fitting symbol for this particular Transmundanity Award. I hope you agree.

So congratulations Rob. That is some really disturbing work, and I love it.

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.

Man, Matthew-that artwork was really good! What an artist! And yes some of those were disturbing too!

I love it! Now I am finally feeling the holiday spirit!

Jeremy Barker said...

Wonderfully disturbing. Now I wish I had a cooler backround. And some talent. And traffic. Ah well.

micgar: And it has such wonderful technique too.

Mr. Fab: Well, from the most transmundane guy out there, that is saying something.

Jeremy: Well, all I got going for my blog is the background... really.

Just twisted enough and well-deserving to wear the mantle of Trandmundanity!

And to think, you get credited with an assist tonight as well.
