Week 26: Pageant of the Transmundane

I always start these things off with a weird news story, and this week, I don't think there was anything weirder than the Asian man who tried to sneak into Canada wearing a latex mask which made him look like an old white man.

This week's winning entry comes to us from the blog Golberz.

And in this case, it is a collection of vintage pulp novels cut in such a way as to make them into 3D artwork. While I don't like to see books being abused, I still thought the whole concept and execution was pretty awesome.

Since this has to do with pulp novels, I thought another image from Max Glikman's excellent Pulp Simpsons images would be the most appropriate image for this win.

Congrats. Here is your 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 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 pretty sweet work.
It reminds me a bit of other 3d image creation hobby stuff.

The depth of field in the photos really sells the concept.

The Gimp scene will give me nightmares.

The concept of the gimp or the actual events of his appearance?
