James Lee Stanley. Most of you have probably never heard of him, but I've been a fan since I first saw him in 1986, and just got to see him live again last week. Dude has like 25 albums; seriously, you should check them out. (Simpatico is my personal favorite.)

Savlonic, the electro-pop group that started as animated videos on the "Weebl's Stuff" website, has a new album called "Neon".

the first volume of the Steven Universe soundtrack is out on iTunes, Google, and Youtube. The sound quality is amazing, especially with headphones.  :shock:

 

Here is Broadway superstar Patti Lupone as one of American Animated TV's great villains -- the galactic dictatress Yellow Diamond.

 

 

 

The song is about her compatriot's mourning for Pink Diamond, who was murdered on Earth during the Crystal Gem rebellion.

 

Do not click below if you do not want to be spoiled for the newest episodes. Repeat -- DO NOT CLICK ON IT! It's ENORMOUS!

 

 

After the most recent set of episodes, Yellow Diamond has gone from avenging demon to the prime suspect -- who still wants to annihilate Earth and make the surviving rebels suffer.
