Happy Memorial Day!

May 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

I’d like to wish all of my fellow stalkers a VERY happy Memorial Day.  I am taking today off from blogging as I am currently on vacation in the Pacific Northwest, doing some stalking of the Seattle and Vancouver areas, but I promise to be back tomorrow with a whole new post.  I hope you all had a fabulous three day weekend!



The “War Games” House

May 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, I got an email from fellow stalker Owen who was writing to ask if I owned a copy of the 1983 movie War Games on DVD.  And while I did not own the movie, nor had I ever actually even seen it, my fiancé, thankfully, did.  Owen was inquiring about the DVD because he was currently in the process of trying to track down the house where teenaged computer prodigy David Lightman (aka Matthew Broderick) lived in the flick.  Owen had […]



The New York Public Library from “Sex and the City: The Movie”

May 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Sex and the City Filming Locations

In honor of today’s big premiere of Sex and The City 2, I thought I’d blog about a location from the original movie that I stalked this past October while I was in Manhattan – the New York Public Library.  And even though I’ve actually blogged about this location once before, since I did not include any interior photographs, I thought the place was definitely worth re-visiting.  In the original Sex and the City movie, Carrie Bradshaw (aka Sarah Jessica Parker) and her fiancé Mr. […]



Jan’s Duplex from “Beautiful Girls”

May 26th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while in Minnesota three weeks ago (and I can hardly even believe that it’s already been three weeks!) was the duplex where Jan (aka Martha Plimpton) lived in fave movie Beautiful Girls.  The residence is actually located in Hopkins, a city about thirteen miles west of Minneapolis and a bit out of the way from the other Beautiful Girls locations.  I found this spot, once again, thanks to Owen and his Beautiful Girls master […]



The Los Angeles Flower Market from “Valentine’s Day”

May 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to the Original Los Angeles Flower Market in Downtown L.A. to find a florist for our upcoming wedding on August 21st.  For those who don’t live in the area, the Flower Market and surrounding Flower District are something of a phenomenon, the likes of which I’ve never seen replicated anywhere else.  In fact, before moving to Southern California a little over a decade ago, I had no idea that anything like the Flower Market […]



The Justin Halpern “Sh*t My Dad Says” Book Signing

May 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

 
A few weeks ago, my best friend Kylee made an off the cuff remark to me about “Sh*t My Dad Says”, the Twitter account that is currently taking the internet world by storm.  And even though the site currently boasts more followers than Lauren Conrad’s, at the time I had never actually heard of it.  This shocked Kylee to no end and she commanded me to sign onto the internet immediately to check the page out.  Well, let me tell you, I absolutely loved what […]



The “FlashForward” FBI Headquarters Building

May 21st, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

I was thoroughly disappointed to learn about the cancellation of the ABC television series FlashForward earlier this week, as the show was one of my favorites of the 2009 Fall Season.  What makes the cancellation most heartbreaking, though, for me at least, is the fact that because the season finale was filmed long before the series was canceled, producers did not get a chance to wrap-up the show’s central mystery.  I am afraid that unless a different network purchases FlashForward (which does happen on occasion), […]



Bryant-Lake Bowl from “Beautiful Girls”

May 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

To appease my good friend and fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, who has been on my case ALL WEEK about my constant Minnesota blogging, beginning tomorrow I will be returning to my old stomping grounds, so to speak, by writing about locales in the Los Angeles area.  Unfortunately for Mike, though, there are still quite a few North Star State locations in my backlog that I’ve yet to post about.  So, I guess I’ll just have to intermix them with my L.A. locales from this […]



Mickey’s Diner from “The Mighty Ducks”

May 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I thought I’d give y’all a break from the myriad of Beautiful Girls locations that I’ve been blogging about as of late by dedicating today’s post to a very famous and historic St. Paul restaurant named Mickey’s Diner.  The diner is something of a Twin Cities landmark and pretty much every Native Minnesotan that my parents and I met while in the North Star State two weeks ago – from the concierge at our hotel to the barista at the local coffee shop – told […]



The Johnson Inn Restaurant from “Beautiful Girls”

May 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The other Beautiful Girls location that I was most excited about stalking (second only to the main houses used in the movie, of course), while in Minnesota two weeks ago, was the Johnson Inn – the local “Knight’s Ridge, Massachusetts” watering hole where Willie Conway (aka Timothy Hutton), Tommy “Birdman” Rowland (aka Matt Dillon), Paul Kirkwood (aka Michael Rapaport) and the rest of the gang hung out in the flick.  Interestingly enough, two locations actually stood in for the Johnson Inn in Beautiful Girls – […]
