'''''[[http://keepbeachcityweird.tumblr.com Keep Beach City Weird]]''''' is an official CharacterBlog for ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' written by Matt Burnett and Ben Levin from the viewpoint of [[ConspiracyTheorist Ronaldo Fryman]]. In it, he tells about his insane theories as to what's been causing various strange happening around Beach City (that were actually caused by the Crystal Gems) as well as largely unrelated ramblings on everything supernatural and conspiratorial.

An entry was made for most episodes in the first three seasons, generally related to events or thematically to the plot, and released shortly after that episode airs. A book based on the blog, titled ''Keep Beach City Weird: You Can't Hide the Truth!!!'' was released in April 2017. An advertisement for said book is currently the most recent post on the blog, as Burnett and Levin left the show around that time to begin production on ''WesternAnimation/CraigOfTheCreek'', which they created.

** "Giant Woman" introduced the concept of [[FusionDance gem fusion]]. The corresponding post was about carnies, including two pairs of ConjoinedTwins.
** Right after Steven uses time travel to make copies of himself in "Steven and the Stevens", Ronaldo makes a post about alternate timelines.
** In "Lion 3: Straight to Video", Steven finds a magical dimension in Lion's mane, and gets to watch a video message to him left by his late mother. The corresponding post has Ronaldo reviewing the anime "Princess Koala", which is surprisingly deep despite it's silly looking premise, and specifically mentions how touching it was that the main character finally got to meet her koala mother on the spiritual plane.
** Steven is inspired to live on the road by a book series in "On the Run", then Ronaldo posts a review of the graphic novel adaptation.
** "Winter Forecast" is about Steven experiencing the same events over and messing up more each time, and is followed by a post about life's biggest regrets.
** After "Say Uncle", the non-canon {{Crossover}} with ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'', Ronaldo reports on ''Crying Breakfast Friends''' crossover with ''[[FictionalCounterpart Inter-dimensional Family Friend]]''.
** During "Steven's Birthday" Ronaldo posts that [[NotTheirBirthday you should never celebrate on your actual birthday]], [[TheParanoiac least you suffer from identity theft]].
** "Mr. Greg" is a MusicalEpisode about Pepe's Burgers giving Greg a royalty check for a jingle, which he uses to go to town with Steven and Pearl. The corresponding post was a crossover fanfiction about the mascot for Pepe's Burgers and Pear from ''Crying Breakfast Friends'' (who was established in "Cry for Help" as their equivalent of Pearl), where both are performing at a club. One of the last lines references the jingle ("I would like a burger"). He even makes a reference to a Hot Dog in the audience, in reference to Steven bringing his hot dog duffel bag.

It is a distinct possibility that the gremlin's real identity is Amethyst, given she's a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] [[ThePrankster prankster]] who's lived in Beach City for thousands of years, and also has a very short, child-like body. Though real life myths about gremlins [[NewerThanTheyThink only go back to the 1920s]], so Ronaldo may have made the whole thing up entirely.

** After the broadcast of "Marble Madness", [[http://keepbeachcityweird.tumblr.com/post/112839172676/ive-been-hearing-very-weird-sonic-disturbances Ronaldo noticed one of the Plug Robonoids entering earth]], so his plans for the next week involve watching the [[FunWithAcronyms C.A.R.T.O.O.N.]] [[note]] Comet/Asteriod [sic] Research Telescope Observing Objects Nationwide[[/note]] NETWORK, a comet-detecting service for commercial airliners, every day at 5 P.M., with the relevant points bolded. This just happened to give a reason to post once a day for each episode of the first Stevenbomb.
** Ronaldo's [[Recap/StevenUniverseS2E10RisingTidesCrashingSkies documentary]] was taken down from [[Website/YouTube TubeTube]] [[http://keepbeachcityweird.tumblr.com/post/121711009986/tubetube-took-down-my-video-because-copyright for copyright violations]], which he assume is for using a copyrighted music track. The unstated reason is that the documentary makes up almost an entire episode of the show, thus putting it online would be a copyright violation.[[labelnote:*]]Even though ''Keep Beach City Weird'' is an official CharacterBlog, getting permission from the network to post the video would likely take more effort than it's worth for the show's crew. Same-day episodes of Cartoon Network shows are exclusively available in the U.S. to pay television subscribers through the channel's website. [[/labelnote]]
** [[http://keepbeachcityweird.tumblr.com/post/136626403061/keep-beach-city-spoiler-free The post before "The Answer"]] tells of Ronaldo staying off the internet for months to avoid spoilers for a movie, then being told the biggest plot twist when he was in line. It serves as a parallel to both the recent release of ''Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' ("the revival of one of the most famous sci-fi franchises in the world") and the show's return from another hiatus (the movie was ''[[ShowWithinAShow Dogcopter]] 4'', and the episode started the fourth Stevenbomb). In particular, his frustrations mirrors that of the crew at leaked clips from the upcoming episodes.
