Week 14: Pageant of the Transmundane

Ahoy Hoy from the republic of Latveria. I don't like all these menacing statues of a masked and caped man lurking in all the public spaces, but what are you going to do.

This week's winning entry comes from the humor blog Blame it on the Voices.

Now there is a lot of quality material available from this site, and there were a few other entries which could have made the cut, but alas, there can be only one winner, and I chose a post featuring a series of photographs depicting various tenants of one particular hotel room. I thought it was a well-thought out premise, and it had a lot of narrative angles which intrigued me, and a lot of small details which made the images well worth exploring on subsequent viewings.

And to celebrate this week's winning entry, well, I could think of no more fitting tribute than Homer Simpson and Mindy sitting on a bed, tempting each other with food and sexual chemistry. To the Homer Simpson Transmundanity Awards! Huzzah!

Congrats to xco for astonishing me this week. Here is the requisite 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.
