My Quickies (v.3.28.10)


- Xtina Gaga: The cover art for Christina Augilera's much anticipated 'Bionic' album was released this week. I guess when Gaga's hot, everyone should try to cash in on it.

- 'Bulls Hit: The gorgeous New York Red Bulls Arena officially opened its doors last night in Harrison, NJ. The aesthetics of the riverfront soccer stadium rivals most of its European counterparts. (Red Bulls)

- 'Strike' Out: The latest MTA worker strike (this time due to funds being cut) caused many delays Friday morning in Queens, prompting many unhappy customers who at the time certainly don't mind the layoffs. (NYD)

- Party Over in the USA: Miley Cyrus declares after her album drops this summer, she's done with music and will concentrate more on films. So now you have to pay $12 to get your Hannah Montana fix. (E!)

- Hogwarts Comes Alive: The grand opening for the 'Wizarding World of Harry Potter' at Universal Studios is set for June 18th. So be prepared to see a lot of muggles dressed as wizards a week in advance. (Official Site)

- The Final Countdown: After eight season, FOX says the current of '24' will be its last. I still remember the days of '24' marathons in college. Gone are the days of Sherry Palmer, Kyle Singer & cougar traps in the woods. (EW)

- Dead Possum Society: A Pennsylvania man was arrested while trying to resuscitate a dead possum. The intoxicated man was said to have mistaken him for Punxsutawney Phil. (NYD)

- Disgruntled Diva: So the reason Megan Mullally quit the Broadway show 2 weeks before previews appears to be that she has her nose up her butt failed to convince the producers of the show to fire her costar, Patton Oswalt. (NYT)

how long do you think people will wait for Universal for Hoggwarts weekend? I hadn't even thought of the lines or opening week experience...truly a diehard experience.

Geez, I have no idea, but I'm banking on some muggles camping out for maybe a few days prior to the opening date.
