NEW Wallpaper Resolutions

NEW Wallpaper Resolutions

Computer monitors are getting bigger and bigger. I’ve been creating my wallpapers in 2560px width for years now, but finally decided to post that width in Widescreen and HD resolutions. Enjoy the new resolutions: 2560×1600 (Widescreen 16:10) 2560×1440 (HD 16:9) As always, I post...

Thanks for 30,000!

Thanks for 30,000!

This has nothing to do with this site, but recently I’ve reached 30,000 followers on INSTAGRAM. What does this mean? Absolutely nothing, except that maybe I’m more active in the selfie department at the moment. My anime viewing has greatly decreased over the years as age and jadedness...

Tweaks Here and There

Tweaks Here and There

Howdy folks! So I’ve made minor tweaks to the menus here and there. It was bothering me that the site’s non-category links were thrown at the bottom and not visible in the mobile versions of the site, so I’ve shifted things around a bit. Now there’s a...

Welcome to The Forgotten Lair Version 18

Welcome to The Forgotten Lair Version 18

*checks watch* It’s been only 4 days right? I said this update would take a week, but did it in 4 days… Before I go collapse from exhaustion and lack of sleep, let me give you the tour. If you look at the very top, you will see an assortment of anime characters. If you have dual...

Happy Birthday To Me. Again?

Happy Birthday To Me. Again?

Crap. Well, it’s that time of year again… When I officially grow a year older, mutter something about how no one cares after you’re 21 and then move on with my life. Whoopdeedoo. Ten years ago, I had just graduated High School. ONLY TEN YEARS AGO…

I’m Getting MARRIED

I’m Getting MARRIED

Wondering why I’ve been away from the graphics department for so long? See the title… So yes, some of you may or may not know, but I’ve been engaged a few months now and will be getting married in June. Meaning I’m planning stuff NOW. As a hardcore geek that respects...

Another Year Gone By, Another Missed Birthday…

Another Year Gone By, Another Missed Birthday…

Every year for the past five years I’ve almost always forgotten about this site’s birthday… On December 29, 2012 – this site turned NINE YEARS OLD… Holy smokes… I’ve been running this site for almost a decade now. Looking back, I see the growth and...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Created Instagram Account

Created Instagram Account

It’s been a while and some updates other than Anime Reviews will be coming out slowly. Meanwhile I’ve created an Instagram account so you can follow me there if you want to see sepia colored images of me, my face and other things I’m too lazy to photoshop on the go… As a...

So I’m Engaged Now…

So I’m Engaged Now…

Yep. That’s the news I’ve been keeping for a few weeks. So what does this mean? Absolutely nothing has changed. I just have a rock on my finger and people ask me a lot of questions. That’s about it. In other news, if you haven’t been following me on Facebook or Tumblr, then...

Can This Be?

Can This Be?

First, I’d like to announce minor changes to the Wallpaper and Avatar sections. If you look at the either section, you will notice that now there is a number next to each Anime title, telling you how many avatars or wallpapers you will see inside. I don’t know why I never thought of...

I’m Now On Tumblr

I’m Now On Tumblr

Okay so I finally caved. Basically for a few weeks I’ve been meaning to update but never found the time… Mostly because I want to submit something meaningful and not fully half-assed. Mostly a wallpaper. You guys know those can take MONTHS. It sucks to have standards...

Another Missed Birthday

Another Missed Birthday

Fear not. You didn’t miss my birthday. I probably won’t want to announce my birthdays anymore, anyhow, due to the fact that I’m reaching that unspeakable age that begins with a three and ends with a zero… That’s right, three hundred. The birthday the title mentions...

Back From The East

Back From The East

Well I’m back. Tokyo and Taiwan were fun. If you follow me on Facebook (and you should), then you’d have followed my adventure via the photos I uploaded. Be sure to check them out through the album I posted on the page. I got to see Mt. Fuji, visit temples, shop in Shibuya, ride the...

Journey To The East

Journey To The East

So I will be away until April 12th on vacation. I will be visiting Taiwan, Japan and maybe Thailand. Camera? Check. Tourist outfit? Check. Empty suitcase inside a suitcase to be filled with goodies? Check. I’ll be checking the site from time to time but won’t be posting any new content...

The Mass Effect

The Mass Effect

So it’s a week before my move to another country and I haven’t packed yet… I have a good excuse though. 1. I work. 2. Mass Effect 3 is out and I play as a female Commander Shepard that has stayed loyal to my boy toy Kaidan since the first game… So I’ve got more sexy...

The Future of TFL Design – In Your Hands!

The Future of TFL Design – In Your Hands!

Firstly, a special thanks to Shogo for his donation to TFL Design – keeping the tradition that I receive donations for this site every two years. In light of this, I figure I’d make the bi-yearly announcement asking for donations to keep this site alive for years to come. If you all...

Facebook Covers Now Available

Facebook Covers Now Available

Available ONLY on FACEBOOK. So I had asked about 24 hours ago, if you guys would like TFL Design to create some Facebook Covers for your profiles. A handful of you answered within that time, so I assumed that handful stood for the majority of the 700+ fans… Anyway, you can now find some...

Happy 8th Birthday TFL Design

Happy 8th Birthday TFL Design

I created The Forgotten Lair graphics site 8 years ago on December 29, 2003. It was originally for Neopets Guild members to acquire the layout designs I was making. Shortly after, I made it public to everyone on the interwebs – all on Freewebs hosting. Let’s just say TFL Design has...

Tutorial Comments Activated

So I’ve added the ability to comment in the tutorial sections now. I figured people would have questions or comments on those parts specifically. Check out my LATEST TUTORIAL, featuring how I did my “defiance” (Grimmjow Wallpaper) and ask questions if you want. The videos I make...

And Then There Will Be Cake…

And Then There Will Be Cake…

Howdy! I just turned 25 today. Aaaand now my life goes downhill from here… Fall is here and so all you kids will be going back to school. Work is same old routine for me. I am currently working on a few website and graphic projects, so don’t you worry. I’m also still watching...

To Asian Drama or not to Asian Drama?

To Asian Drama or not to Asian Drama?

Are you following me on Facebook and/or Twitter? Well are you? Because I give my most recent updates on those social networks and I can share info not posted on this site. (Like what I’m eating or what new video I think you should watch.) Since this site no longer offers MP3s, I can only show...

You’ve Lost Your Passion!

You’ve Lost Your Passion!

The title is from a Tastosis Starcraft cast about how they’ve lost their passion for the game and my discussion with Andy on how I’ve lost passion for creating more creative wallpapers. First off, fuck off, I’ve got shit to do now, ‘mkay? (It’s called a job.) And...

Holy Catch Phrases!

Holy Catch Phrases!

Is it me or is the Anime franchise dying in North America? I don’t think the younger generations are watching as much Anime as I did when I was thirteen. Toonami no longer offers a lot of quality Animes anymore, especially not at reasonable times. It could be the fleeting times, bad economy,...

Spring… IT HURTS MY EYES!

Spring… IT HURTS MY EYES!

At last! I recently finished Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 and let me tell you, the game is CRAZY good and addicting. I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in 2.5 weeks! Hurray for insomnia! I’d recommend the game to anyone that likes RPGs, FPS, and games with an awesome story. You...

So Everyone Keeps Calling Me Shepherd

So Everyone Keeps Calling Me Shepherd

Hello people. Been playing a lot of Mass Effect lately. Guess I’m going to play through the first two games before the third one comes out. It’s pretty addicting and the story is great. Any decisions you make, especially the dialogue, directly influences the outcome of the game. In the...

Welcome to TFL Design version 17

FINALLY… THE SITE IS… 90% DONE… The overhaul I’d been meaning to do for YEARS is finally here. So first off, you will notice that I am aiming for more of a blog feel. Yes, nowadays it’s hard to update this site with graphics. Not only do I no longer have as much time,...
