Week 42: Pageant of the Transmundane

Now, you may have heard, but the students of Ole Miss have decided they no longer want their school's mascot to be the stodgy Southern stereotype it has been for many a year. Instead, they want their school's mascot to be Admiral Ackbar.

I would love to see that for just one game. One game. That would make my day.

Anyhow... *ahem*

This week's winning entry comes to us from the wondrous world of Electronic Cerebrectomy.

It is an interesting video directed by McG/Murakami and starring Kirsten Dunst exploring the cosplay culture of the Akihabara district of Tokyo while singing Turning Japanese.

And since this is once again an entry relating to something related to Japan that has stunned me, I have gone to the well again and drew another image from The Simpsons episode Thirty Minutes over Tokyo for this week's Transmundanity Award.

Congrats Aaron. You know the drill. 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.
