Trivia: That Guy with the Glasses

That Guy with the Glasses provides examples of:

  • Development Hell: Blistered Thumbs, after spending more than a year with plans for a site, launched in the early hours of November 7, 2010.
    • The site redesign, which has been puched back again and again for years. Last update on the matter was in Setember 2012, when we were assured that this time it's really really just around the corner.
    • Inked Reality was talked up as being split into a seperate site around the time Blistered Thumbs first split off, but it seems to have been put on the backburner since then.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Various contributors have works that aren't easily available.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: While their characters may be Jerkasses, TGWTG contributors are some of the nicest people found on the Internet.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Many of the contributors were already fans of the website and featured on Transmission Awesome's (Rollo T also being an example of this trope) Awesome Blog of the Week segment before being picked up.
  • Romance on the Set: Several contributors have gotten together over the past few years. Lindsay and Todd, Hope and Nash, Lewis and Elizabeth, and Allison and Phelan. Recently Paul and Elisa were engaged, and as of October 2013 are married.
  • Schedule Slip: While Doug and some of the other producers keep a tight schedule, a good deal of the team only sporadically submit movies or anything else. Of course, most of them do it as a side project, not as a full-time job.
  • What Could Have Been: The Superman IV review would have opened with a green screen with Linkara at the Critic's house. It's mostly the same as the original review with one little addition...
    Nostalgia Critic: And where's my chair?
    Linkara: I, uh, sold it at a garage sale. Was that wrong?
    Nostalgia Critic: *shoots gun*
    Linkara: Noted.
