Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 152: Adventures in Light Distortion

GC13, Sophia, and David discuss Adventures in Light Distortion.

It’s the melodramatic second episode, so there’s a bit of criticism. It could have been better (or at least more appealing to the podcasters) if it had focused less on Steven worrying about people we knew to be fine, and maybe if Steven had used his powers to stop the ship.

Of course space is big, so we have to bring that up. With the Milky Way galaxy being so large, taking only seventy years to reach the zoo (at sublight speeds) means it’s just a stone’s throw (metaphorically speaking) from Earth.

Also, if you met him online recently, GC13 says hi.

Steven Universe air times for August 14-20, 2017

No re-runs are scheduled for this week.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 151: Steven’s Dream

GC13 and David discuss Steven’s Dream, the start of Out of This World and our first present-day look at Blue Diamond.

Check out Greg’s new watch! We know he didn’t lose it when he was alien-abducted, since he wasn’t wearing it in Korea (or in the van for that matter), so where did it go? Mr. Greg has a lot of important things to spend money on, so hopefully he doesn’t need a new watch already.

Plus, this episode is your random reminder that we still haven’t had the mural from Serious Steven explained yet. Maybe a character will explain it for us, but can life be so perfect?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 150: Know Your Fusion

GC13 and Sophia discuss the best new late-night talk show on the air: Know Your Fusion. Play us in, Jorge!

Sardonyx is a star of the episode (perhaps even the lead, much to her later dismay), so it’s only natural to talk about her. What kind of fusion did you expect out of Garnet and Pearl after seeing what Opal and Sugilite were like?

Still, the fusion-to-fusion sitdown does characterize them both very well, with Smoky Quartz having plenty of time to feel insecure and Sardonyx providing the backdrop for the chat.

Also, this episode reminds us that we are not just on Opal Watch, we are also still on Sugilite Watch.

Steven Universe air times for July 31 – August 6, 2017

No episodes are scheduled to air this week.

Mr. Jones-Quartey’s show, OK K.O., will be premiering this week though. Starting on Tuesday, new episodes will be airing each weekday at 6:10 or 6:30 PM EDT until August 24.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 149: SDCC 2017 promotional clips

GC13 and David discuss the spoilerific (we think) promotional footage shown at the Steven Universe panel at San Diego Comic Con 2017.

So, Lars of the Stars? Are you hyped yet? Whether it feels real or not, it definitely feels awesome.

We have a Gem going full Saturday morning cartoon villain in a fully Pirates of the Caribbean atmosphere. Oh, and Lars says “Bingo Bongo.” It’s transcendent.

It’s not all fun and games though: a trailer was played showing much more sober times on Earth. Perhaps we could all enjoy a ripping adventure among the stars to lion the mood.

Steven Universe air times for July 24-30, 2017

No re-runs this week. (Out of This World was originally scheduled, but has since been removed.)

Soundtrack vinyl set available for pre-order

It happened much sooner than we expected: the vinyl edition of the Steven Universe soundtrack has gone up for pre-order on iam8bit.com.

It will cost you $50 to buy, and will have all 37 tracks on four 10″ colored records (with their appearances themed on one each of Steven, Amethyst, Pearl, and Garnet).

There is no specific shipping date: “Q4 2017” is all we have at the moment. Anyone who pre-orders before the end of July 25 Pacific time will be entered to win a ukulele signed by Ms. Sugar herself.

Steven Universe: Art and Origins

On July 11 the art book finally came out: 240 pages of concept art, storyboards, and discussions about the creation of the show, all bound inside a beautiful hard cover. It even includes images from Ms. Sugar’s early work, including many stills from her student film Singles.

Early concept sketches for the Gems? This book has those. Early sketches of the Beach City citizens? It has those too. Backgrounds from the show? Those are in, and they’re lovely.

If you’re still on the fence about this one, we can say reservation: get this book. It’s gorgeous, and it’s great to see so much from the show’s creation.
