    Here's a really good AMV! The song definitely fits with the show, and the editing is pretty well done over all. Be sure to give it a watch, after the break!

    You've probably seen the comic (and if you haven't, click the pic above) with the headcanon of what Peridot's weapon is. Now, here's an animation demonstrating how effective it would be!

  • Article: Are Kids' Cartoons Growing Up?

    I really enjoyed this article! It explored the struggles that these three shows have faced when trying to represent the LGBT+ community. All three have definitely made strides, most recently Steven Universe. "For the moment it seems like ideas are changing, slowly, but we're definitely headed towards a more accepting future in children's programming." Click below to read the full article, and here's to hoping that better representation is just around the corner.

    This is a super cool AMV! It features Garnet, and the song in the background is by Estelle (so it's easy to imagine Garnet singing it). Be sure to check out this awesome AMV, after the break!

  • Spotlight Music: Let Her Go

    Check out this awesome original song by Cyril the Wolf! The song was inspired by the episode 'Nightmare Hospital'. There's even a download link in the description, so be sure to check this song out!

  • Fan Theory: The Diamonds Are Fusions

    I'm sure you're all aware of the Diamond Authority that the show has hinted at, and that fans have been surmising about for months. Here's a super crazy theory about the Diamonds that actually has a lot of evidence to back it up. I didn't expect for this theory to be so mind-blowingly plausible, but I found myself thinking over and over that would make total sense. Given how many surprises we've seen from the show so far, many which were hinted at early on (Garnet being a fusion was hinted in episodes 4 and 32, but not revealed until episode 52), it doesn't seem too far fetched for this theory to actually be true. Consider how much has still been hinted at that we don't know about (we still don't know what the geode is, what that chest in Lion's mane contains, or why there's a bubbled gem in Lion), all of which must have some kind of story that will be revealed later on. So, read up on the theory below, and prepare to be as amazed as I was!

  • Comic: Okay / Blanket / The Real Villain

  • Article: What ‘Steven Universe’ Can Teach Us About Living Between Two Worlds

    This was a really good read, that further explored Steven's struggles with being a half gem, half human. Steven is very special and unique, and Steven himself finds that very cool. But in the same way, Steven is also very alone. As Garnet said, "There's never been anything or anyone like Steven." Steven is the only one of his kind, a half human and a half gem. None of his kind have existed before. Both humans and the Crystal Gems treat him differently, because he's only half of either type. Not fully human, not fully gem. Steven struggles to find his identity, his history, and himself. Check out the article below to read more!

  • Nightly Discussion #109

    Good evening everyone! How's it going tonight? I wonder if we'll get to see any more canon ships in the show, much like Ruby and Sapphire. I know many fans are hoping for Lapis Lazuli and Peridot interaction, which doesn't seem too unlikely given Lauren Zuke's love of the two characters. Not only that, but it'd be nice to see Pearl move on from Rose, perhaps with someone like Amethyst. Anyway, let's get to tonight's chat!

  • Comic: Redeemed

    So this is weirdly kind of a comic, kind of an animation. The beginning is animated, and the rest has sound effects, but it is mostly just the comic reposted to the video. Wasn't sure what to label it, but hope you enjoy!

  • Nightly Discussion #108

    How's it going everyone? Did anyone watch the super blood moon eclipse tonight? Speaking of things happening in space, it's pretty interesting how SU hinted in the first episode about the Crystal Gems backstory with the silly Cookie Cat song. Whenever something silly or seemingly insignificant happens, it generally turns out to have a hidden meaning or message. This show can appear so subtle, but then have so much deeper meaning to it. Anyway, enough surmising, let's get to chatting!

    This Steven Universe song was amazing to listen to. Henri​Green has a beautiful voice, and this song almost brought me to tears with how emotional it is. Be sure to give this original SU inspired song a listen, after the break.

  • Kraken Con Interview with Zach Callison

    Nerd Gazette did a really interesting interview with Zach Callison at Kraken Con! Zach Callison reveals that he started voice acting on the radio show Adventures in Odyssey. Zach also talks about various roles he worked on before SU. He'd love to do more crossover episodes, much like what was done with Uncle Grandpa. He'd also like to delve more into villain roles, the opposite type of character that he usually plays. Check out the full 9 minute interview below!
