Where You Are Almost Guaranteed A Britney Sighting!

Nov 30th, 2007 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Ever since she shimmied down a hallway in her  . . . Baby One More Time video (which was filmed entirely at Venice High School, by the way) I have been obsessed with BritBrit.  I can’t tell you how many times I have dressed up as Britney for Halloween!  And I was even an extra in Crossroads – the Britney Spears movie!  Nowadays Britney is more likely to be wearing Cheetos fingers than cute schoolgirl uniforms, but I must say I am still kinda obsessed.  Which […]

More 13 Going On 30!

Nov 30th, 2007 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I was pretty obsessed with finding Jennifer Garner’s apartment from 13 Going On 30 for quite some time and I finally found it earlier this year in New York!  It required A LOT of pausing and rewinding my DVD of the movie, but it turns out the apartment is right where the awning of the building said it was  – 51 Fifth Avenue.  Most productions put fake signs or address numbers up during the filming, but in the case of 13 Going On 30, not a whole […]

The “13 Going On 30” Houses

Nov 27th, 2007 | By | Category: Movie Locations

If someone asked me what movie most closely resembles my life, I would have to say 13 Going On 30. I am definitely a child of the 80s, I still dress like a 13 year old most of the time, and I’ve been known to do the Thriller Dance at a few parties, so it’s only natural that I would be slightly obsessed with the movie 13 Going On 30.  While most of the filming locations for the movie are located in Manhattan, a few of them can […]

My So-Called Weekend

Nov 21st, 2007 | By | Category: My So-Called Life Filming Locations

I know My So-Called Life has been off the air for over 8 years now, but I am still slightly obsessed with it.  When one of my co-workers told me that MSCL was filmed at his high school, University High School in West LA, I set out to have a My So-Called Weekend!
University High School, aka Uni High, is located at 11800 Texas Avenue.  Although the front of the high school is quite impressive, it was the back staircase that was actually used as Lincoln High […]

Never Never Land

Nov 21st, 2007 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Now, even though he has some issues – I do love me some MJ. So I was quite distressed to find out last weekend that MJ’s ranch, Neverland, is in a state of disarray and might be sold and torn down. I just happened to be spending a couple of days in Santa Barbara, so I figured I better go check the place out while I still had the chance.  I dragged my poor boyfriend 45 miles north of SB to Santa Ynez to stalk at the famed […]

Finding the Shark House!

Nov 19th, 2007 | By | Category: TV Locations

Well, it may have taken me months, but I finally found the property used as James Woods’ home on the CBS legal drama Shark.  Ever since watching the Sharkpilot episode I have been slightly obsessed with Sebastian Stark’s modern style wood and glass abode.  In recent months, though, the house had become the bane of my existence – the one filming location I just simply could not find!!  I Googled the terms “Shark filming locations” more times that I care to admit, I check and […]

Seinfeld’s Apartment

Nov 18th, 2007 | By | Category: TV Locations

Like most filming locations, the site used as Jerry’s apartment building on the hit TV show Seinfeld, can actually be found in Los Angeles, not Manhattan.  It is a nondescript little building that actually does look very reminiscent of New York.  I didn’t recognize the building in person, until I looked at it through the viewfinder of my camera, and I practically heard the be-bop-bop of the theme song in my head!  During Seinfeld’s day, the awning of the building was green, but today it is a drab brown.  In real […]

I am in love – and his name is Don Antonio!

Nov 18th, 2007 | By | Category: The Hills Filming Locations

Like most everyone who watches, I, too, think Spencer and Heidi from The Hillsare complete douchbags – but I still had to go find the restaurant they seem to visit on every episode – Don Antonio’s.   It was easy enough to find with a simple Google search and, with camera in hand, my boyfriend and I ventured out there one Friday night.   It is a cute little place, that is usually jam packed with people.  I thought at first that the many visitors were all Hillsfans like myself hoping for a Speidi sighting, […]
