Week 11: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Oakland. I've just been mauled by a group of Raiders fans, and I ran away from some face painted baseball fans across a park... and boy am I tired.

This week's winning entry comes from the recent annals of He Shot Cyrus (if you find a better stylized picture of Luther, buy it)

And once again, Muppets win the day. I should really go back and see how dominant Muppet-based entertainment is in this award... because they do win a disproportionate amount of Homer Simpson Transmundanity Awards.

In this case, it was Bert and Ernie really thuggin' it up to Ante Up by M.O.P. (which is very bouncy, and then I looked up the lyrics, and wow, armed robbery is an accessory to this award... nice).

And since I've pretty much mined the whole Simpsons/Muppet connection to the bare granite, well, I thought Homer Simpson being in the presence of a lot of rappers would be more in keeping with this week's Transmundanity Award. And it is especially fitting as the episode this image is drawn from has to do with Bart's fake kidnapping, a theme which was explored in the song.

Congrats Elgringo on winning your first award from Culture Kills. Here is your badge.

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.

Semaj said...

Man, that was very well put together. Thank goodness for the Internet.

Arjan said...

just saw Cocaine Cowboys 2 btw. It was quite good.

Arjan: Good to know I wasn't in the minority about this.

Semaj: Yes, what would we do without the internet. hehe.

Arjan redux: How is the soundtrack?

Arjan said...

I liked the soundtrack especially because there was a track written for this movie. Most of (if not all) tracks were old skool (gangsta) rap, which I like. There were some instrumentals, but I was far to busy watching the docu to really listen to them.

MC said...

I still remember some of the instrumental work Hammer did for the first one, which is why I asked.
