Week 13: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Carlsbad Caverns... I got lost somewhere during the week, found a portal, and somehow ended up here... of course, the endless chanting of "What What, in the butt..." haunted me all this week.

This week's winning entry hails from The Blog of Regrettable Music, a place that is just based on the proposition that crimes against music, videos and album covers exist everywhere, and so, it needs to be exposed.

Now remember the word "exposed" as it will have some bearing on this week's winner. There is no nudity in the winning clip... but there are some things that don't need bare flesh to make them creepy and wrong.

It's weird (these are the Transmundanity Awards, so that shouldn't be surprising), it's Japanese (which makes it even more weird) and it is Spandexized (so be afraid, be very afraid)

Click here if you are ready for the horror.

Since it is Japanese (again), well, I am sort of running out of Japanese icons to work with, so I thought a little bit outside the box and found this specimen at Hello Kitty Hell. It is fitting with the Japanese theme for this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award, dontchathink?

Congratulations Ben and the rest of the crew at TBoRM for freaking me out this Friday.

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 don't think the guys that made that video had any idea they would have such an honor bestowed upon them. We're still hoping to get the rest of the japanese translated this week! Stay tuned...

(Ben, for the Regrettable Music guys)

Oh man-that was horrible-true to the blog's name, that was truly regrettable "music".
Hope NM treats you right!

It always has in my imaginary travels.
