The Great Nitpicky Live Blog of El Goonish Shive
Goggle Fox: Logically the werewolf journal thing should have been written in archaic German, but obviously this would be impossible to manage in world. Again, this is a point where a comic run by Rule Of Funny alone would have been fine, but we're getting semi-serious here. Either way, it's a common mistake. As for the mod decisions on there, meh. Expected, but I don't know what all has been said in the thread over there, and it's probably best not to dig it up.
Cakman: Well, I'll get to the reviewing, but suffice to say, I now have a festering hatred for everything the EGS forum stands for. They deleted my thread. AHR says she posted the replies. 181

It's a common trope and a handy plot device and I'm willing to look the other way I guess. But lampshading it doesn't mean you didn't do it, and having the characters lampshade it but then forget about it doesn't help your case. 195: Oh come on, he had an excuse this time. It was a guy's journal! That said yeah, only the last entry actually had useful information. 197: Do I have to have actually seen the movie to get the joke here? 199: Really, Dan. The grass being short was the great question of this arc that needed answering?
