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.

Just some brief pre-match...

Okay, I guess this post is rather diff. As in whatever I need to address, I've done so on the group stages. So what am I gonna say here? Same ol' formation, same ol' starting 11. More or less anyway. So maybe let me just add a little bit of my own take in Italy vs Croatia. Only one fella matters. De Rossi. De Who? Those who have followed Roma's fortunes like from dunno how many donkey years back will know who this fella is. In a very real sense, he's pretty much of a cardbait. Maybe far more than the rest of his peers from the same generation. But then was then, now is now. If there's anything to go by, I'll call him a souped up Lee "Catts" Cattermole. Why? The on-the-pitch style is eerily similiar. If anyone thinks the Italians can't play blood-and-thunder, then perhaps he should try and have a go on this Italian tiger. Tentatively, he's being plonked at the center of the back 3. So now the biggest question: Why? Now let's just get this clear once and for all. Back then in 2006, there's Gennarro "Maybe we should ask Joe Jordan" Gattusso. Now that he's gone from international scene, De Rossi has to take up the mantle. And a very damned heavy one at that as well. Gattusso might be a rough and tumble midfielder, but there's nothing roughshod over his on-the-pitch leadership. In fact, I will say he's pretty much to Italy akin to what Keano is to Man Utd. Altho to be fair, Keano would have done the same thing to Joe just like what he had done to Alf-Inge Halaand all those years back.

Now onto Bilic's Brigade. In order to breach the Italian defence, he will need all Modric and Jelavic can ever manage in their entire lives. Technically wise, they can't really do that much as long as De Rossi can maintain his on-the-pitch presence. But that's only on a collective basis. If Modric's creative spark (read: A free role?) is needed to split the defence up, then Jelavic will have to shoulder the task of killing the game off. Yet in order for the two to do their stuff, Bilic needs to build his tactics around the two. Simply put, just try to imagine 1 Barca, 2 Messis.

Spain vs Ireland. srsly there's nothing I can afford to say here. Barring something coming from a certain Señor...
