Montrose Bowl

Jun 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, while out stalking the city of Montrose with Mike, from MovieShotsLA, the two of us happened to stumble upon a little bowling alley named Montrose Bowl, which has been featured in countless movie and television productions.  Even though the bowling alley is currently closed to the public – it is only available as a venue for private parties – we just had to step inside for a little looksie.   The owner truly could NOT have been nicer to the two of […]



The Nightmare on Elm Street Houses

Jun 29th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
While all of my friends and family are, for the most part, very supportive of my stalking endeavors, I still quite often get asked the question, “Do people really care about this stuff?” and “Can you explain your website to me, because I just don’t get it.”  LOL  One of the people who “just doesn’t get it” the most is my good friend, and fellow actor, Blaze.  So, the other day, while the two of us were out and about in Hollywood, I decided to show him what […]



Michael Jackson’s Walk of Fame Star

Jun 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Still saddened by the sudden death of Michael Jackson, early yesterday afternoon I decided to pay my respects to the legendary pop star by visiting his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  I thought I would post the pictures I took while there for those of you who do not live in the L.A. area and cannot visit the star yourselves. 

I honestly don’t think Los Angeles has ever seen the likes of anything comparable to this in its entire history.  I had absolutely no idea what I was in […]



Rest in Peace, Michael

Jun 26th, 2009 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

I was absolutely devastated to learn yesterday of the passing of music legend Michael Jackson.  I had no idea his death would affect me in the way that it did, but I simply could not stop crying.  Due to the sad news of his death, I didn’t feel it would be appropriate to post a regular blog entry today. 

And while I do realize that Michael Jackson was hated just as much as he was loved, because I grew up long before any of the problems in his personal life had occurred, my memories of the pop star are all good ones.  […]



The National Lampoon’s Vacation House

Jun 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

And speaking of National Lampoon’s Vacation, last week fellow stalker Owen made it his mission to locate the Griswold home from the 1983 comedy flick.  Amazingly enough, he ended up finding the house pretty much right away!  For this particular movie location expenditure, Owen decided to “stalk outside the box”, so to speak, and started looking through Vacation’s IMDB message boards to see if they provided any clues as to the home’s locale.  He ran across a thread entitled “Griswold House 2008″ where, lo and behold, someone had actually posted […]



Santa Anita Park

Jun 24th, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

This weekend, I dragged my fiance out to Santa Anita Park, aka the Santa Anita race track, in Arcadia for some major stalking.  Our original plan was to catch a movie at the theatre located next door to the track, but a funny thing happened on the way to the show.   While driving to the movies, I got an email from fellow stalker Owen who told me that Santa Anita Park stood in for the entrance to Walley World in fave 80s movie National Lampoon’s Vacation.  Needless to say, I […]



Rosie’s Pink House from The Wedding Singer

Jun 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker Owen contacted me to see if Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I could help him track down Rosie, aka  the rappin’ granny’s,  pink house from the 1998 movie The Wedding Singer.  Owen had been trying for quite a while to locate the home, but just couldn’t make out the house number that appeared above Rosie’s front door.  So, Mike and I got to work in trying to nail down the home’s location, or at least its correct address number. 

And, while neither Mike nor […]



Don Draper’s House from Mad Men

Jun 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Got an email last week from fellow stalker Karin who wanted me to locate the house belonging to Donald Draper (played by Jon Hamm) and his wife, Betty (played by January Jones), on the AMC television series Mad Men.   It turns out that my good friend, and fellow stalker E.J., over at The Movieland Directory, had written down a bunch of addresses where Mad Men filming had taken place over the years off of the On Location Vacations website.  Using those addresses, it wasn’t long before Karin and I had located the right house.   […]



The Step Brothers House

Jun 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Got a challenge last week from my good friend Chelsea who wanted me to find the home used in the 2008 movie Step Brothers.  Lucky for me, Mike, from MovieShotsLA,  had already found this location a few months back and told me where it was located.     So, today – after stalking about a million wedding locations – I ran right out to stalk the Step Brothers  house.  Thanks, Mike!!!!

 

My friend Chelsea had a hunch that the Step Brothers  home was located in the Pasadena area and […]



Il Cielo

Jun 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, The Hills Filming Locations

Looking at wedding venues is so darn fun that, I swear, I think I would be happy just remaining engaged forever.  It could be my full time job.  What do you do?  Oh, I’m engaged – full time!    LOL  On Tuesday, my wedding venue expedition led my mom and me to a little restaurant in Beverly Hills named Il Cielo.    And I have to say that the place was downright amazing!!!  So much so that it’s at the very top of my very narrowed down list of possible […]
