Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

6.
The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

Phase GAR: 1

“不会错的。。。子和,此将乃何人?天下之大竟有龙翼助玄德邪?”~曹操。孟德

"Its not a mistake... Zihe, who is the warrior before my eyes? The world is vast, yet Xuande had wings of a dragon by his side?" ~ Cao Cao.Mengde

How to impress your boss: Part 2

及先主为曹公所追于当阳长阪,弃妻子南走,云身抱弱子,即后主也,保护甘夫人,即后主母也,皆得免难。迁为牙门将军。
《赵云本传》

Upon being pursued by Duke Cao unto Dangyang Changban, Liu Bei was forced to abandon his wife as he fled south. Yun cradled the son of his lord, known as the Latter Lord, while protecting Lady Gan, who was the Latter Lord's mother, from harm. As the result, he was promoted to the General of the Standard.
(Original Account of Zhao Yun)

仁弟纯,纯字子和。从征荆州,追刘备于长坂,获其二女辎重,收其散卒。 魏书曰: 纯所督虎豹骑,皆天下骁锐,或从百人将补之,太祖难其帅。纯以选为督,抚循甚得人心。及卒,有司白选代,太祖曰:“纯之比,何可复得!吾独不中督邪?”遂不选。 
《曹仁传;曹纯之生平》

Ren's brother Chun, styled Zihe. During the conquest of the Jing Province, he chased Liu Bei unto Changban where he managed to capture his two daughters together with the scattered soldiers. Book of Wei: The Panthera Cavalry under Chun were renown for their valour. Taizu (Cao Cao) had trouble choosing a person to lead these elite where one of their own could only be picked out of a hundred. Chun was chosen in the end where his gentle yet no-nonsense character managed to win the hearts of all. Upon his death and subsequent search for a successor, Taizu said, "The likes of Chun is irreplaceable! Now only I am left to lead by merit!" Hence, the decision to cut off the search. 
(Account of Cao Ren; Account of Cao Chun's life)

Double confirmed: Cao Chun=Badass. Zhao Yun=GAR.

Further evidence on the Cold Hard Truth:

比到当阳,众十馀万,辎重数千两,日行十馀里。。。
《先主传》

Unto Dangyang with masses numbering hundreds of thousands, the journey could only progress a mere ten plus miles with baggage weighing a few thousand catties... 
(Account of The First Lord)

Note on the above excerpt: The insanity at Changban only consisted of an elite cavalry numbering 5000 if we're talking about Cao Wei's end. Yet to imagine those guys going 300+ liover a day and night... now I finally know the origins of the Ferrari logo. O.O
