Michael Jackson’s Childhood Home in Gary, Indiana

Aug 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Michael Jackson Locations

Today’s blog is a major, major fail on my part as I had originally intended to write about this location on Monday, August 29th – the day that would have been legendary singer Michael Jackson’s 53rd birthday.  The suggestion to write about the King of Pop’s childhood home on the anniversary of his birth came from fellow stalker Chas, of the It’sFilmedThere website, who had stalked the Gary, Indiana-area property for me last August, after I had mentioned how badly I wanted to see it […]



Figaro Bistrot from “Made of Honor”

Aug 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in my post about Le Petit Bistro back in early August, one location that I have been longing to stalk for quite some time now is Figaro Bistrot, an adorable little French cafe that has appeared in numerous productions over the years, most notably the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009 advertising campaign which featured pop star Madonna.  For whatever reason, though, the Grim Cheaper and I had just never made it out there.  Until this past Saturday evening, that is, when we found […]



Vitello’s Italian Restaurant from “The Deep End of the Ocean”

Aug 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, after doing some stalking in Beverly Hills, the Grim Cheaper and I decided to head over to the Valley to grab dinner at one of our very favorite eateries in all of Los Angeles – Vitello’s Italian Restaurant in Studio City.  And even though I have blogged about the place twice before – first in June of 2008 and then again later that November –  due to the fact that it is set to undergo an extensive – and when […]



The Cliffhouse Restaurant from “City of Industry”

Aug 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For our first wedding anniversary this past weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to the desert to spend a few days at the La Quinta Resort & Club, a historic hotel and popular celebrity hangout which I blogged about extensively last December.  The GC’s brother, who works for the Hilton Hotels chain, which owns the resort, hooked us up royally with a Friends-and-Family discount so we were able to book a suite at an amazingly low rate – a suite that turned out […]



One More Day Off

Aug 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

At the last minute the Grim Cheaper and I decided to extend our anniversary mini-vacation by one more night, so I will unfortunately be taking another day off from blogging.  But I will be back tomorrow with a whole new post – I promise!  
Until next time, Happy Stalking!  



My First Anniversary!

Aug 22nd, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

The Grim Cheaper and I are currently celebrating our first wedding anniversary by spending a few days in Palm Springs, so I will be taking Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday off from blogging.  I promise to be back on Thursday though, with a whole new post!  So until that time, Happy Stalking!



Lucille’s House from “Bye Bye Love”

Aug 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location that fellow stalker Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, had on his extensively detailed list of places to stalk during our day together in L.A. this past July (and there were over 30 locales on that list, by the way; as I said it was quite extensive!) was the residence where Lucille (aka Janeane Garofalo) lived in the 1995 film Bye Bye Love.  And while I had never actually seen Bye Bye Love at that point in time, I absolutely fell in love with […]



The “Troop Beverly Hills” House

Aug 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker Mikey, from the Mike the Fanboy website, mentioned that he had recently stalked the residence belonging to the Nefler family – Phyllis (aka Shelley Long), Freddy (aka Craig T. Nelson), and their daughter, Hannah (aka Jenny Lewis) – in the 1989 comedy Troop Beverly Hills.  Well, let me tell you, after hearing that I literally just about had a heart attack!  TROOP BEVERLY HILLS? TROOP BEVERLY HILLS!  How in the heck had I forgotten about that movie??  I […]



Lance’s House from “Pulp Fiction”

Aug 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last month, fellow stalker Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, came to town, along with his super-sweet mom, for a little filming locations vacation, and the three of us spent a whole day together, stalking pretty much all of Los Angeles, from one end of the city to the other.  For this adventure, Chas had compiled an extensively detailed list of various movie locales, along with maps to each and a driving timeline.  I know – it was all so Monica Gellar of him.  LOVE it!  […]



Edith Palmer’s Country Inn

Aug 16th, 2011 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

The final Nevada-area location that I stalked while visiting my grandmother in Reno last month was Edith Palmer’s Country Inn in Virginia City – the spot where my girl, Miss Marilyn Monroe, stayed for a short time while filming her last completed movie, 1961’s The Misfits.  I had actually stalked the exterior of the historic property once before, while vacationing at my grandmother’s back in June of 2008, and had also written a short blog post about it.  As fate would have it, the inn’s […]
