OK. I removed the speedy because of your contested deletion argument. Please do add the remaining sources mentioned here that haven't been already mentioned in the article and support the assertions of notability as much as possible. (preferably ones that aren't reviews or blogposts). AngelOfSadness talk 00:59, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
