Week 42: Pageant of the Transmundane

This story was just so Simpsonriffic, it has to be the lead for this Homer Simpson Transmundanity Award. Pickpockets in Somalia threw a feral cat into a crowd to make stealing from a group of worshippers outside of a mosque. Eleanor Abernathy and Jessica Lovejoy were not found at the scene.

Anyway, the winning entry this week comes from the excellent pop culture blog, Popped Culture. Jeremy has really stepped things up this week as he had two entries that were more than worthy of this award this week.

But since there were two worthy entries, I went with the one that initially wowed me. Therefore, the entry which has won the award this week, was simply entitled Rise and Fall of the Nazi Dinosaurs. It is stop motion animation, and the person who made it should be proud as it turned out to be a compelling bit of Youtube cinema.

And to recognize this achievement, well, naturally a picture of Homer Simpson as a World War II soldier will suffice. I could have went with Homer sneezing in a T. Rex's face from the Treehouse of Horror segment "Time and Punishment", but I thought this image suited the whole scene a lot better. After almost 20 years of shows and fan made homages, finding images for this contest is getting increasingly easier.

Congrats Jeremy on winning this award yet again.

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.

That was f'n wild man! I loved it! Great effects! Jeremy has done it again!!

Let's hope the filmmaker in question gets additional work from making it.

Thanks MC! It's was a fine week for great finds. And I love winning on week 42. Say, does this qualify me for a Triple Crown, or is the fact one of the three is from a previous Triple Crown disqualify?

Anyway, giving more recognition to the kind of talent who makes that sort of movie and posts it for us all to see is award enough.

MC said...

Yes, you will need one more... but given the fact that you posted 2 things last week that would have won it, I think another triple crown is eventual.
