Week 10: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from the Land of Dreams... wait, this is Newark, which really no one dreams about, or rather has pleasant dreams about, because let's face it, I am sure someone has had a nightmare about trying to escape from Newark.

AHEM. After that rigmarole, perhaps I should just get on with the show.

This week's winning entry comes from the Nintendo-based blog, The Tanooki. A particular writer for the blog named Pete discovered a Flickr photostream consisting of old school video games redone in Lego.

And since this week's winning entry was game related, well, it is fitting that I have a game-related sighting for this Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. Thus, a Grand Theft Auto mod become a beautiful display of appreciation for bringing this gem to my attention.

Congrats Pete and the staff of the Tanooki for such a memorable find.

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 liked the Metal Gear ones myself.

Lego-related stuff is comic gold. The duck hunt ones are the best by far. Hmmm... it's almost been a year since I won my last transmundane award. I think I need to get back on the horse.

But your last win represented the farthest someone has gone physically to win one, which is saying something (not that getting a tattoo was aimed solely at winning that award).
