Ferndell Nature Center

Sep 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

It’s that time again, my fellow stalkers!  Time for my annual, month-long Haunted Hollywood theme!  And yes, I do realize that October 1st is not actually until tomorrow, but I just could not wait one more day to get started!  So here goes!  My first Haunted Hollywood locale is actually one of my very favorite spots in all of Los Angeles – a peaceful little idyll named Ferndell that is tucked away inside of Griffith Park.  And while the place could hardly be described as […]



Dean’s House from “License to Drive”

Sep 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For no particular reason and seemingly out of the blue, I got on a License to Drive kick a couple of weeks ago and was absolutely floored to come across a page on fellow stalker Geoff’s 90210Locations website that detailed almost all of the locales featured in the movie.  The only spot missing was the Shakey’s Pizza Parlor where Les Anderson (Corey Haim), Dean (Corey Feldman), Charles (Michael Manasseri), and Mercedes Lane (Heather Graham) wound up after almost getting into a car accident in the […]



Joyce’s House from “Little Black Book”

Sep 26th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last week, while doing research on locations from fave movie Little Black Book, I decided to watch the “Live & On-Air: The Making of Little Black Book” DVD special feature in which the filming of a deleted scene happened to be shown taking place in front of a house that I immediately recognized.  I had actually stalked – and blogged about – the home back in March 2010 thanks to its appearance in Father of the Bride Part II.  (You can read that post here.)  […]



Emmys 2013

Sep 24th, 2013 | By | Category: This and That

I spent this past weekend in L.A. enjoying a whirlwind of activities including the bridal shower for Miss Pinky Lovejoy, of the Thinking Pink blog, some pre-Emmy parties and the 2013 Emmy Awards.  And while I had a blast, I did not get home until late last night and therefore did not have time to write a new post for today.  I do promise to be back tomorrow, though, with a whole new location.  And I also promise to post my Emmy pics as soon […]



The End – Kime Buzzelli’s Vintage Shop

Sep 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

As I mentioned in my April post about the Hideaway Saloon (which you can read here), I have been a longtime follower of 90210’s former costume designer Kime Buzzelli on both Twitter and Instagram.  Kime is BEYOND sweet and is always happy to answer questions from fans, whether it be about what a character wore in an episode or where a scene was shot.  She was even nice enough to share a photograph of a typo that she had taken with fellow stalker Owen for […]



The “Punky Brewster” Grocery Store

Sep 19th, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I mentioned in my August 18th post about the buildings used in the opening credits of fave ‘80s television show Punky Brewster (which you can read here), one spot that remained a mystery was the grocery store where Punky Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye) offered to help patrons carry their bags in exchange for money.  I wondered in the post if the market might be located in Chicago, but fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, sent me an email that same […]



Liberace’s Valley House from “Behind the Candelabra”

Sep 18th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned last month in my post about Sherman Way Adult Books from Behind the Candelabra (which you can read here), back in May fellow stalker E.J., of the Movieland Directory website, challenged me to find several locales from the HBO biopic including the L.A.-area home belonging to Liberace (Michael Douglas).  It was never made entirely clear where exactly in Los Angeles the house was meant to be located in the flick, but I believe that it was supposed to the pianist’s San Fernando […]



Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom from “CSI”

Sep 17th, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

While watching the Season 4 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation titled “Turn of the Screws” way back in May 2004, I became just a wee-bit obsessed with tracking down the theme park that stood in for the supposed Las Vegas-area Sphinx Amusement Park.  My mom was the one who ended up locating it for me, thanks to this March 2004 AP news article that she found online.  As she discovered, Sphinx Amusement Park was none other than Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom located at 1101 North […]



Derek’s Apartment from “Little Black Book”

Sep 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The Little Black Book location that I was most interested in tracking down was the supposed New Jersey-area apartment building where Derek (Ron Livingston) lived and where his girlfriend, Stacy (Brittany Murphy), spent most of her time.  I fell in love with the adorably charming building upon sight when first watching Little Black Book and while it continually lingered on my mind as a must-find spot, because I thought it was located somewhere on the East Coast, I never put much effort into it finding […]



Mission Street from “Little Black Book”

Sep 13th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in November 2010, a fellow stalker named Clayton wrote a comment on my post about Fair Oaks Pharmacy from Mr. Deeds (which you can read here) alerting me that fave movie Little Black Book and the 1985 classic Back to the Future had also done some filming at the 50s-style soda fountain.  And while he was actually wrong on both counts, his comment led me to the discovery that part of the opening sequence from Little Black Book had been filmed just down the […]
