Week 12: Pageant of the Transmundane

Researchers in Texas have discovered that certain people love Apple and their products so much that they display the same behaviors as religious followers. Like that is news to anyone.

But it seems we have a new milestone, as far as I remember. Yes, we have a winner who has won this award two weeks in a row. As you know, it takes a lot to up the ante and win this prize more than once in a short succession, let alone win it twice in a row. But that is what has happened. Calvin's Canadian Cave of Coolness has done just that.

Last Saturday, Kal posted a video which has been making the rounds this week: Ron Livingston covering Keyboard Cat. It is just surreal, and it was nigh unbeatable this week.

And because this entry has to do with cats, well, Homer and Snowball seemed the be the best representation of the winner.

Congrats Kal on doing the near impossible.

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 blogging village 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.

This is not a meme. This is an award that I give out, and thus, I am not "tagging" you.

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 is so freakin' cool I can barely stand it. You try and you try and sometimes you hit the jackpot two days in a row. Thanks.

Livingston hasn't aged a day.

His acting is impressive -- I mean, he's got the movements and expressions of Keyboard Cat down perfectly.

Kal: You are in exhalted company... your own.

John: It is hypnotic.
