All Hail Sarcasmo- Cultural Icon   

If you are one of Sarcasmo's faithful readers, then you know all about her quest for World Domination. It was a recurring theme. Even so she did not expect to realize omnipotence in one fell swoop, and would have gleefully celebrated each and every step along the way to achieving ultimate supremacy.

Sarcasmo's very good friend, and friend of Sarcasmo;s Corner, Peccable has developed and produced a game. Realpolitik ( working title "Project Spy" ) is:

" a game of lies, murder, and dirty tricks for 2-5 players "

Realpolitik is a card game. And one of the cards is this one:

Yep. Cultural Icon. She would have loved that !

I remember her telling me once that her friend Peccable was developing a game, and how awesome it was and how proud she was of him. She was sure it would be a hit, and she was rarely wrong about such things. She is, after all, the Cultural Icon.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have yet to play the game. ( Thanks to Peccable I did get to participate in one aspect of the production. When you get your copy check out the Cassadra card). I asked Trackerneil if he would write a review, but he recused himself on the grounds that he was too involved to be objective. Fair enough. How about anyone else who has participated in play testing, or in playing the finished project. The Corner would love to hear from you.

Congratulations to Peccable. Job well done.

Monday Morning Madness   

This time last year the Sarcas-family and many friends of Sarcasmo's Corner were up to our eye patches in plans for the pirate themed auction that was held in April. Our goal was to part ye landlubbers from some pieces of eight, to benefit the Star C. Foster Writers Prize at Sarcasmo's alma mater. We were pleased as punch with the results, due in no small part to the many generous donations of auction items we received. Buccaneers and landlubbers alike scored some bountiful treasures. Tickets to plays, comedy clubs, local eateries and events were some of the plunder.
I am hoping to hear from those who attended and and outbid their mates. Have you taken that dance lesson? Did you ever get a copy of the song ? How was dinner? Have you heard from that author/ We want to know. Tell me all about it in an email I can post, or leave the details in the comments. I am hoping to get in touch with everyone sooner or later.

In news that is totally unrelated to pirates, as least I'm pretty sure it is, Sarcasmo Jr. has a new job. It is very exciting. Due to the fact that Sarasmo Jr. wisely keeps the details of her professional life off the internet, I can only tell you that she is happy and we are happy for her. She will be moving to a new location and she has quite the impressive title! Wish her well.

Yes, I know, get on with the links.

A Thousand Words- is what they say a picture is worth. these tags are a bit shorter. Thanks to Vis Major who sent us this link. Sarcasmo would have been captivated by it.

Nothing Common About This-Add your own tags to a collection from the Library of Congress. Another site that Sarcasmo would have spent time on for sure.

How to Make the Most of Your Toolbar   

A belated Happy New Year to one and all. Before we do anything else Sarcasmos Corner would like to aknowledge that our good friend Peccable had a birthday this weekend. Go wish him a happy. Go ahead. I'll wait.

(picture me with arms crossed, tapping my foot and humming the Jeopardy theme)

You're back.! Good. Now on with the show. So how was everyone's holiday? Show of hands, was Santa good to you? How many of you scored a WII under the tree? How about Blade Runner the Final Cut? That many ? My first thought when I heard that this had been released for the gift buying season was, "how many versions of this movie does the world need?" My second was that Sarcasmo might have put it on her Amazon wish list. It is, after all,

A- movie, and Sarasmo loved the moving pictures. On occasion I would find her at home on a Sunday afternoon,relaxing with a flick. Something light from a relatively unknown Japanese director about love, life and political upheaval , set in the frozen Siberian wastelands. It would be in the original French, but there would be subtitles. Or, it would be a movie with zombies. One never knew.

B-It is Blade Runner, a movie hat has achieved cult status. Some of us get it and some of us don't. I'll let you guess which camp I fall into.

C- It stars Harrison Ford. That alone would make it gift listable.

Another thing Sacasmo found entertaining were stick figures. Especially animated ones that met gruesome ends. I think she would have been delighted by this fellow. In Animator vs. Animation our stick figure protagonist resists the many ingenious attempt of the animator to help him meet his eraser. He defends himself with cunning, tenacity, and, the Windows toolbar. Enjoy!
