Caesars Palace from “The Hangover”

May 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My recent trip to Las Vegas with the Grim Cheaper was magical, due in large part to the fact that we stayed at Caesars Palace.  Neither the GC nor I had ever stayed there before and, while planning our trip, I decided to see what the rates were.  I happened to find a remarkably inexpensive one and booked it immediately.  It was a fortuitous decision because the four nights we spent there were spectacular.

As luck would have it, when we checked in we were given […]

The “Even Stevens” House

May 27th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Though I am a tween at heart, for some reason the 1999 television series Even Stevens, which focused on the life of seventh grader Louis Stevens (Shia LaBeouf), was never on my radar.  In fact, I don’t think I had ever even heard of it until a fellow stalker named Britt posted a comment on my site in early March challenging me to find Louis’ supposed Sacramento home from the show.  Britt had included screen captures with her query, but, being that I was not […]



The Alhambra from “NCIS”

May 26th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Sometimes you go years wondering about a location only to find out that it is right in your own backyard.  For what seemed like ages, I had wanted to track down the United States Criminal Investigative Service office from NCIS.  I had a feeling that the series used two different structures – one for establishing shots and one for on location exterior filming – and it turns out I was right.  While watching a scene that took place outside of NCIS headquarters in the Season […]



Happy Memorial Day!

May 25th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish all of my fellow stalkers a very happy Memorial Day.  I hope everyone takes a moment today to remember what the holiday is truly about – not three-day weekends or BBQs, but honoring those who passed away while fighting for our country’s freedom.



The Frederick Mitchell Mooers House from “Mod Squad”

May 22nd, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I’ve said before, stalking begets stalking.  Back in January, I wrote a post about a spectacular abandoned residence that had been featured in recent episodes of both Major Crimes and Parks and Recreation.  A longtime reader (a veeeery longtime reader, pretty sure he’s been with me since the beginning!) named John was intrigued by the property and started exploring the surrounding neighborhood via Google Street View.  In doing so, he stumbled upon the Frederick Mitchell Mooers House, an absolutely stunning Victorian located just a […]

The Last Bookstore from “Gone Girl”

May 20th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I love bookstores – and books.  Actual books, not the digitized versions.  You will never catch me reading on a Kindle.  I like the feel of a book in my hands, the physical act of turning the pages and the smell.  I love, love, love the smell of books.  The Grim Cheaper always makes fun of the fact that I am constantly smelling my reading materials and when we watched the Sex and the City movie for the first time, he turned to me laughing […]



The Cooper House from “Forever Young”

May 15th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s locale is a bit of a long time coming.  In my early March post about the bungalow where Daniel McCormick (Mel Gibson) lived in Forever Young, I mentioned that I had stalked a different house from the 1992 movie – the one where Claire Cooper (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her son, Nat (Elijah Wood), lived – in my early stalking days.  I found the location thanks to Scott’s L.A. Audio Tour of Pasadena CD, but because this was long before I had a blog, […]
