Week 15: Pageant of the Transmundane

Greetings from a geekosphere far far away and long ago. Drat... just typing that line suddenly made the children's song "Over the River and Through the Woods" run through my head like an Olympic Sprinter.

This week's winning entry arrived early this week at the home of Apropos of Something.

By the intro I gave this week's awards ceremony, I am sure that you have an inkling that Star Wars is somehow involved in this particular entry, and you would not be wrong.

Yes, this week has to do with the wedding ceremony that a couple of ardent fans of the franchise... because everyone involved had to dress up like a character from one of the movies.

And because it has to do with Star Wars, well, this seemed to be the most appropriate image for this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. I thought about going with Homer as the mislabeled Bigfoot from the earliest days of the series to get some sweet, Chewie action going, but then it made me want a granola bar, and that isn't good for anyone really.

Congrats Jess... you are quite the superstar in the Transmundanity community now.

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 saw an episode of Dr Phill yesterday where a guy had faaaaaaaar too much Starwars collectibles..his wife couldn't stand it anymore. Darn funny.

Like I said on apropos..I'd switch to Leia in the blink of an eye. I wonder how the 'you may now kiss the bride' part will go.

Jess said...

Oh, wow! Thanks! :)

I know it's a cliche but as others have commented-it's a trap!

Megan: I just think theme weddings are bizarre to begin with.

Arjan: I once likened appearing on Dr. Phil to get a problem fixed to seeking a solution to a personal problem by jumping in a septic tank. Even if it fixes what ails you, you are still going to smell really bad.

Jess: You earned it.

Micgar: I know... I know.
