Kent’s House from “Wicked City”

Nov 30th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

I cannot express how disappointed I am that ABC cancelled Wicked City.  I’ll admit that I was not very impressed with the series’ pilot episode, but I think that was mainly due to the fact that it was rather jarring to see Ed Westwick (one of my absolute faves!) portraying a serial killer.  The second episode had me hooked, though, and by episode three I was full-blown obsessed.  So it was quite a blow when the show was cancelled just three days after that episode […]



Happy Thanksgiving!

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

I am cutting this week short blogging-wise so that I can begin my Thanksgiving celebrations early.  I am so excited for all that we have planned for the holiday, including a stay somewhere cold, and will be sharing some of my upcoming adventures on the blog soon.  I hope all of my fellow stalkers have a fabulous Thanksgiving!



Westfield Culver City from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Nov 24th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Some filming locations are maddeningly elusive.  One that remained a thorn in my side for ages was the mall where Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Lynne Stone (Helen Hunt) shopped in Girls Just Want to Have Fun, which, for those who haven’t been paying attention over the years, is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Thanks to some help from my friends Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, of The Brady Bunch’s Golden Spoon fame, I was finally able to […]

The Sadr City Date Factory from “American Sniper”

Nov 18th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I sat down to figure out what to write about for today’s post, I started getting worried that my location backlog was running low.  That worry was quickly amended as soon as I began perusing my inventory of stalking photographs and saw that was not the case at all.  I have so many locales stock-piled, in fact, that it is almost ridiculous!  One such spot that I visited last February, but somehow failed to do a post on is the abandoned El Centro warehouse […]

The Pasadena Main Branch of Bank of the West from “Falcon Crest”

Nov 13th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

For years now, I have been trying to track down the bank where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) worked in the 1986 comedy Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  It is one of those locations that always sits fixed at the back of my mind, images of it constantly floating around in my head.  So when I came across photographs of the Pasadena Main Branch of Bank of the West, which bears a striking resemble to the bank where Terry worked, on a Noirish Los Angeles forum, my heart […]

The Daily Dose Café from “Scandal”

Nov 11th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

There’s pretty much nothing I love more than a cool coffee house.  So when Cupcakes and Cashmere blogger Emily Schuman wrote about the Daily Dose Café, a downtown Los Angeles coffee shop “nestled between two large industrial buildings” that feels like “your own secret spot” this past August, I was mesmerized!  I happened to be in the area when I read the post and ran right out to stalk it just a few minutes later.  Emily’s description of the place was spot on and I […]



Halloween 2015

Nov 10th, 2015 | By | Category: This and That

I know I say it every year, but this Halloween truly was the Best. Halloween. Ever.  As I mentioned on Monday, my best friend, Robin, and his girlfriend, Steffi, flew in from Switzerland to spend the week with us.  Halloween is not celebrated in Switzerland, so I was beyond excited to share my favorite holiday with them and we wound up turning it into a full weekend event.

Robin and Steffi arrived in L.A. on Friday evening and we immediately headed out to RISE of the […]
