Praise baby Jesus!!! I’ve always wanted to go to the Harry Potter theme park, but if I’m going to fly all that way to Florida, I’m spending my time in Miami. No offense, Orlando ;) Now, I can take in all things Hogwarts on the West Coast.

Universal Studios Hollywood announced The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is headed to La-la Land. It’s signature ride, the 3-D HD spectacular “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey,” and other attractions are set to open sometime in Spring 2016. I can’t wait to enjoy some Butterbeer.

“The momentum behind J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world is as strong as ever and we are incredibly excited to bring Hogwarts to Hollywood,” said Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in a press release. “Fans around the world have experienced the magic at ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ in Orlando and Osaka, and we look forward to continued success with our partners at Universal Studios Hollywood as we offer more fans a chance to step into this immersive environment.”

Check out the video announcement below for more details.

a-league-of-extraordinary-gentlemen-remake

In the words of Sean Connery himself from the original film, “I’m waiting to be impressed.” Though it recouped its budget and then some, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen left both critics and audiences unimpressed. Not surprisingly, a sequel was never produced.

There are reports now, though, that 20th Century Fox is rebooting the franchise based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s graphic novel of the same title.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, it’s sort of The Avengers but with literary icons from the Victorian era teaming up. Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker, Allan Ian Quatermain and more join forces to fight a common enemy. Connery, Peta Wilson, Shane West and Stuart Townsend starred in the 2003 film. Speaking of 007, the film was his final live-action film before retiring.

This isn’t the first time someone has attempted to resurrect The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen franchise. Back in 2013, FOX made a pilot commitment to create a TV series, but the network eventually passed.

Do you think a reboot will work? Did you watch the first film? Check out the original theatrical trailer below.

“Any of various small, images, symbols or icons used in text fields in electronic communication to express the emotional attitude of the writer, convey information succinctly, communicate a message playfully without using words, etc.”

Seems like a winded way of saying cute pics in text messsages ;) Emoji is just one of more than 1,700 other words being added to the unabridged Merriam-Webster dictionary. Naturally, plenty of the new entries are very familiar to those who are internet savvy. Check out more words below that made the cut.

mean-girls-mansion

Are you a hardcore Mean Girls fan? Got about $15 million kicking around? Perhaps, this piece of real estate might be of interest.

Regina George’s home featured in the teen flick is on the market for a cool $14.8 million. Situated in Toronto, Canada, the mammoth NeoClassical stone residence is approximately 20,000 square feet. That’s 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms on a private 2 acre property. Naturally, it also has a garage big enough for six vehicles. Duh!

It appears that Regina’s bedroom in the movie isn’t an actual room on the property. Besides the Gone With The Wind-esque staircase, killer kitchen and stunning grounds, the mansion doesn’t appeal to me too much. It’s kinda bipolar with its all-white rooms and old-lady decor in others. Get a sneak peek at the home below and share your thoughts afterwards.

Who doesn’t love random bits of trivia? You never know when some piece of useless information might come in handy.

When it pertains to your little guy downstairs, the more you know, the better. Bet you didn’t know that smoking can shorten your penis by up to 1 cm. Another reason not to date smokers ;) Check out nine other penis facts below.

unbreakable-mad-max-mashup

God, I miss Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, specifically Titus Andromedon. “Pinot Noir” is my jam. Fingers crossed Tina Fey has an equally, if not, better song for Season 2. The Netflix comedy needs to return sooner rather than later.

Clearly, I’m not the only one going through withdrawals. A YouTube user has masterfully inserted footage of Charlize Theron’s Mad Max: Fury Road character, Imperator Furiosa, in the extended opening credits of the comedy series.

It’s remarkable how the theme song lyrics about the Indiana Mole Women also apply to Furiosa and Immortan Joe’s wives. ‘Females are strong as hell.’ Indeed they are. Check out the mashup video below.

chipotle-gaucomole-recipe

Whenever I visited Chipotle, I always ordered the chips and guacamole along with my chicken bowl. That is, until I made the mistake of reading the calorie count. Now, I only eat them if someone else I’m with orders them. It’d be rude not to help them reduce their caloric intake ;)

Since it’s Cinco de Mayo, I figured it’s the day to indulge, even though summer is just around the corner. Honestly though, you can’t have a margarita without some nachos and gauc ;)

The fast casual dining restaurant decided to share the recipe for their signature guacamole for this festive holiday. No need to shell out that cash for extra gauc ever again. Check out the recipe below.
