Daisie Villa’s Houseboat from “Rosewood”

Jun 23rd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

While I love the ocean, the thought of living on a houseboat has never appealed to me – that is until I caught a glimpse of the idyllic floating home belonging to Daisie Villa (Lisa Vidal) on the recently cancelled Fox procedural Rosewood.  I became obsessed with the charming structure upon first seeing it in the Season 1 episode titled “Bloodhunt and Beats,” which aired in November 2015,  and immediately attempted to track it down.  I was unsuccessful in the hunt, though, and started to […]



The Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel from “The Office”

Jun 21st, 2017 | By | Category: The Office Filming Locations

I typically have the memory of an elephant, but up until the Grim Cheaper and I recently started re-watching The Office over again from the beginning, I had honestly forgotten what a great show it is.  I had also forgotten that several locations from it remain unknown and/or undocumented.  One that I recognized immediately during our re-watch was the supposed Philadelphia hotel where Michael Scott (Steve Carell), Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), and Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) stayed in Season 3’s “The Convention.”

Filming of the episode […]



My Latest Mike the Fanboy Article – About the “Pretty Little Liars”: Made Here Exhibit

Jun 19th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I am finally back from my surprise whirlwind vacation!  As it turns out, my best friends flew in from Switzerland for 9 days to spend my 40th with me, along with my parents and the Grim Cheaper.  Though we were originally supposed to spend our time on Coronado Island in San Diego, thanks to a VRBO debacle, we had a last minute change in plans and wound up renting a fabulous house in Palm Springs.  It was honestly the most magical birthday ever.

As fate would […]



Surprise Vacation!

Jun 9th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

The Grim Cheaper has whisked me away for a surprise trip for my birthday (I literally have no clue where we are going or what we are doing), so I will not be blogging for the next couple of days.  I should be back to posting on Friday, June 16th, so I will see you here then.  In the meantime, you can follow along with our adventures on Facebook and Instagram – I am sure there will be much stalking involved with whatever we are […]



Old Tony’s on the Pier from "The O.C."

Jun 7th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Baader-Meinhof phenomenon has been in full effect lately when it comes to Old Tony’s on the Pier, a Redondo Beach restaurant I stalked way back in January 2012 with my good friend Mike (he provided many of the images in this post), but have yet to blog about.  First, Alison Martino, founder of the fabulous Vintage Los Angeles Facebook page, posted some photos of the nautical-themed eatery on her Instagram in May.  Then last week, a link to an L.A. magazine article titled “100 […]



St. Elizabeths Hospital from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

We all know the scene – a nervous Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) briskly walks across a grassy field toward the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, while, behind her, a large U.S. Marine band playing a rousing rendition of “Semper Fidelis” marches in formation and a Silent Drill Platoon performs an enthralling and precisely-timed exhibition drill.  I am talking about the opening of A Few Good Men, easily one of the most famous segments in all of moviedom.  So I, of course, wanted to stalk St. […]



Sam’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

At the risk of saturating my blog with A Few Good Men locations, I’m back today with yet another spot from the 1992 courtroom drama.  (And I still have an additional AFGM locale up my sleeve, which I will be writing about soon.)  Last September, while in Washington, D.C. – where A Few Good Men was set and partially filmed – I dragged the Grim Cheaper, my good friend Nat, her boyfriend Tony, and her mom Marlys (yeah, there was a whole brood of us) […]



Danny’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

May 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

It is rare when a movie comes along and changes the course of your life.  For me, one such movie was A Few Good Men.  I walked out of the theatre after first seeing it in 1992 proclaiming that I was going to become a lawyer.  I was 15 at the time – a sophomore in high school.  I spent the next few years convinced that law was my calling, regularly and passionately professing my love of the film and its climatic “I want the […]



Happy Memorial Day!

May 29th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish all of my fellow stalkers a happy Memorial Day.  I hope everyone takes a moment today to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect America’s freedoms.  I know I will be.  And I will return here on Wednesday with a new post.



Rose Towers from “CSI: Cyber”

May 26th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Spanish-style courtyard apartment complexes are my jam (as evidenced here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).  One that I became especially enamored of a little over a year ago was the pink-hued building where Tristan Jenkins (fave actor Matt Lanter) lived on the Season 2 episode of CSI: Cyber titled “Corrupted Memory.”  While I don’t typically watch CSI: Cyber, when I learned that ML would be guest-starring I made sure to tune in – and was not disappointed.  Not only did Matt do a […]
