Week 22: Pageant of the Transmundane

Hello from Bełchatów, Poland. Like many of my trips for this segment of the blog, I don't know how I got here, but I am going to enjoy it while I can. My, that is a big coal-fired power plant.

*cough* Anyway, I should get on with the show, as I want to enjoy my time here as much as possible.

Jeremy Barker of Popped Culture nominated himself for this award, which proves once again, self-nomination works.

The winning entry was entitled
This Book decapitated Michael Ondaatje
, and it features a video created to advertise a graphic novel, a video which seems like it was spawned from the escaped part of Terry Gilliam's brain that was responsible for the animation on Monty Python's Flying Circus as peopled by the Canadian Literary elite driving Big Rigs.

Yes, it is as weird as that sounds.

And since this week's Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award has so much to do with trucks, well, a picture of Homer as a trucker seemed more than appropriate to celebrate it.

Congrats Jeremy on both your nomination and win.

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.

Sweet! A win in all three years, whoo hoo! And that trailer really is so weirdly funny, I keep watching it.

That was great! "What the fuck was that?!" Talk about "graphic novel"!

Congrats Jeremy!

Arjan: It was a great piece of viral advertising.

Jeremy: I love the sound Margaret Atwood makes after the bad thing happens.

Micgar: And the Duel reference was much appreciated.

Great article, I think you covered everything there. I would say freelancing is quite hard especially if you are not used to working on your own, can be quite hard to motivate yourself also. . . we all know what it is like to stare at the monitor.
