Week 46: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Bronson, Missouri. That is not a typo on my map. At least, I don't think it is. Everyone sounds tough here and I am a little scared... so the sooner I finish this awards ceremony, the fast I can leave.

Once again, there were some interesting late entries this week, but in the end, experience won out over novelty, as it were.

Jeremy Barker, the proprietor of Popped Culture, made a startling discovery this week in a field I didn't know had previously existed.

The wonderful mashed-up world of action star athletics. In this case, a sports team comprised of a bunch of people who make a living kicking the asses of bad guys.

Now if I had made the list, well, it might have had a few alternate selections, but that is neither here nor there. It is a great piece of merchandise, and it is truly transmundane.

And because this week's winner has to do with a group of disparate people being put together, well, it seemed fitting to have something similar for the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award this week. Well, I liked it at least.

Congratulations Jeremy... and you know the drill... this is your badge:

And since Jeremy's second Transmundanity win was in Week 47 of last year, and this is his third win within a 52 week period, he is also eligible for the Triple Crown award, presented thusly:

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

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.

Sweet! I've been dying to get my hands on those triple crowns - needed something to replace the long-in-the-tooth second place finish in the '06 blog awards.

Well, transmundanity is forever.
