The Michael J. Fox Theatre

Jun 30th, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

A few months back, while fellow stalker Owen and I were doing research on Michael J. Fox’s childhood home which I blogged about yesterday, I came across some information about a place called “the Michael J. Fox Theatre” which is located on the campus of Burnaby South Secondary School and, let me tell you, I just about passed out from excitement.  I absolutely could NOT WAIT to tell Owen about the location, as he just so happens to be MJF’s biggest fan.  Apparently, in November […]



Michael J. Fox’s Childhood Home

Jun 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

   
My good friend – and fellow stalker – Owen is an absolutely huge and longtime fan of actor Michael J. Fox.  In fact, I think it’s safe to say that MJF is Owen’s Jennifer Aniston.  So, when I found out that the Canadian-born actor grew up in Burnaby, British Columbia, the very same Vancouver suburb where my man Michael Buble also spent his formative years, I just about died and decided I had to try to track down his childhood home before my trip up […]



Eric Hamber Secondary School from “Juno”

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

The third and final Juno filming location that I stalked while in Vancouver last month was the supposed Minneapolis-area Dancing Elk High School – the learning institution attended by Juno MacGuff (aka Ellen Page), her dorky baby-daddy Paulie Bleeker (aka Michael Cera), and her absolutely hilarious best friend, Leah (aka Olivia Thirlby).  In real life, Dancing Elk High School is known as Eric Hamber Secondary School and it is located a good 1,400 miles away from Minneapolis in the Shaughnessy neighborhood of Vancouver, British Columbia, […]



Jim Henson Studios – Where “We Are The World” Was Recorded

Jun 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

One year ago today the world said good-bye to a man who was arguably the greatest music legend who ever lived – the irreplaceable King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  In some ways, it feels as if more than a decade has passed since June 25th of last year when Michael passed way, yet in other ways it seems as if it all happened just yesterday.  When I reminded my fiancé of today’s significance, he said, “Are you going to be O.K.?”  And that right there […]



Juno’s House from “Juno”

Jun 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While I realize that most of my fellow stalkers are currently clamoring for me to put my Pacific Northwest blogging on hold in order to write about locales in the Southern California area, there are two more locations from the Academy Award-winning movie Juno that I wanted to blog about before doing so.  So, please bear with me for now, as I promise to get back to my L.A. roots first thing next week.    In the meantime, the second Juno location that I stalked […]



Bleeker’s House from “Juno”

Jun 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Vancouver location that fellow stalker Owen managed to track down was the supposed Minnesota-area house belonging to dorky high school track-star Paulie Bleeker (aka Michael Cera) in the 2007 breakout dramedy Juno.  And even though I was not a big fan of the flick – it was funny and all, but not especially spectacular and, in my never-to-be-humble opinion, dealt with the issue of teenage pregnancy far too cavalierly for my taste – because it was such a huge hit and because I was […]



Casey’s Irish Pub

Jun 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
One location that I have been wanting to stalk for what seems like ages now is Casey’s Irish Pub (aka Casey’s Bar & Grill), a historic Downtown Los Angeles watering hole that has appeared in COUNTLESS movie and television productions throughout its more than thirty year history.  I first found out about the bar over six months ago while doing some online research on locales featured in the first X-Files movie and the place has been high up on my “To Stalk” list ever since.  […]



Brockton Point Lighthouse from “The Crush”

Jun 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The third and final filming location that I stalked from the 1993 thriller The Crush while I was visiting Vancouver two weeks ago was the Brockton Point Lighthouse – the spot where 14-year old Adrian Forrester (aka Alicia Silverstone) tried to seduce Nick Eliot (aka Cary Elwes), the much older man who was leasing her parents’ guest house in the flick.  I found this location, once again, thanks to fellow stalker Owen, who in turn tracked it down via one of the movie’s crew members.  […]



Nick’s (Almost) Apartment from “The Crush”

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

Just a mile and a half away from the Forrester mansion, which appeared in the 1993 thriller The Crush and which I blogged about yesterday, is the supposed Seattle-area apartment house where Nick Eliot (aka Cary Elwes) tried to rent a unit after discovering that his current landlords’ 14-year old daughter Adrian (aka Alicia Silverstone) had developed a highly-inappropriate and psychotically-obsessive crush on him.  I found this location, yet again, thanks to master stalker Owen, who had managed to track down one of the movie’s […]



“The Crush” Mansion

Jun 17th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

 
Another Vancouver location that I stalked while visiting the Pacific Northwest two weeks ago was the supposed Seattle-area mansion where Adrian Forrester (aka Alicia Silverstone) lived with her parents in the 1993 movie The Crush.  And while I can’t say that I was a huge fan of the thriller/drama, because Alicia Silverstone grew up in the same relatively small city that I did – a suburb of San Francisco named San Mateo – The Crush has always held a special place in my heart.  Especially […]
