The Villa Del Sol from “Rosewood”

Mar 24th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon is a term used to describe the experience of coming across an obscure word, thing, or piece of information for the first time and then subsequently happening upon references to that same word, thing, or piece of information on a regular basis.  I had never heard of it until fellow stalker/guest poster extraordinaire Michael (you can read the many articles he has written for IAMNOTASTALKER here) mentioned it to me while discussing Haskell’s Ice Cream Hut from The Brady Bunch, a locale […]



The House from Michael Bublé’s “I Believe in You” Music Video

Mar 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

As my longtime readers know, this stalker loves herself some Michael Bublé.  A lesser known fact, being that I don’t talk about it as much, is that I also love me some Derek Hough.  So when I found out that the Dancing with the Stars pro was directing, choreographing, and starring in the cutie crooner’s “I Believe in You” music video, I could hardly contain my excitement!  A collaboration by two of my favorite stars?  Count me in!  I anxiously poured through the many Snapchat […]



Palindrome Healing Center from “Flaked”

Mar 20th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Some images just stay with you.  When I came across these MLS photos of a Venice Beach home on Curbed Los Angeles back in 2008, I practically started drooling and the words “real estate porn” immediately came to mind.  The pictures of the dramatically unique Moroccan-inspired dwelling, especially the ones of the meandering pool, seared themselves into my brain.  So I was thrilled to spot the pad when scanning through episodes of Flaked early last year while writing this Los Angeles magazine post about the […]



The “Last Man Standing” House

Mar 17th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I watch a lot of TV.  Like a lot.  So I am always surprised when I receive an email from a reader asking about a location from a show I am not familiar with.  Such was the case in January, when fellow stalker Marjorie reached out to ask for my assistance in tracking down the house where the Baxter family lives on Last Man Standing.  Though I had never seen even one episode of the CBS series, I am always up […]



The Tate Mansion from “Soap”

Mar 15th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have a pretty amazing memory, especially when it comes to things most people find useless, such as filming locations and movie quotes.  I’m like a vault.  Or an elephant.  Once something enters my brain, it locks in and I don’t forget it.  So I was shocked when I received an email a couple of weeks back from a fellow stalker named Andrew who wanted some assistance in tracking down the mansion belonging to the Tate family on Soap.  My parents and I watched the […]



Pasadena’s “Big Bang Theory” Way Sign

Mar 13th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

God is in the details, as they say.  And it truly is the details, aka the little things, that I miss about living in L.A.  For example, while perusing Instagram recently, I came across an image posted by amylove33 of a street sign in Old Town Pasadena reading “Big Bang Theory Way.”  I was, of course, intrigued.  Not only am I a huge fan of the long-running CBS series, but I loved the fact that Crown City paid homage to it in such an unexpected […]



Màs Malo from “Scandal”

Mar 10th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Los Angeles is often ridiculed for having no history – or no appreciation of its history.  Demolition of the Ambassador Hotel aside, I don’t find that to be true.  There is history – well-preserved history – around pretty much ever corner.  You just have to know where to look.  Case in point – Màs Malo, a downtown L.A. Cal-Mex eatery that is situated inside of a gorgeous former 1920s jewelry emporium.  The site first hit my radar while I was researching DTLA watering holes for […]



Strand Book Store from “Sex and the City”

Mar 8th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I have made no secret of my love for bookstores on this blog, especially in recent weeks (as evidenced here and here).  I literally cannot get enough of them!  So when I spotted a book boutique pop up in the Season 2 episode of Sex and the City titled “The Freak Show,” which I was re-watching shortly before my trip to New York last April, I knew I had to track it down and stalk it.  Come to find out, the place is one of […]



Joseph’s Café – Where Britney Spears Met Kevin Federline

Mar 6th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

Circa 2000, I thought Britney Spears was everything!  Obviously, I don’t anymore (a person can only go into a gas station restroom barefoot so many times before I start to think they’re someone I shouldn’t be emulating), but ever since watching the Lifetime biopic Britney Ever After two weeks ago, I’ve had the pop star on my brain.  I blogged about an infamous location from her past on Friday –no, not one of the aforementioned gas station bathrooms, but former West Hollywood nightclub The Lounge, […]



The Lounge – The Site of Britney and Justin’s Dance-Off

Mar 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

If you are anything at all like me, you eagerly tuned in to watch Lifetime’s Britney Spears biopic Britney Ever After the evening of February 18th.  If not, you seriously missed out.  It was amazing – in the way that only bad Lifetime movies can be amazing.  The two-hour made-for-television flick chronicled a decade of the pop star’s life in the spotlight, from her rise to fame with the release of 1998’s . . . Baby One More Time, through her many turbulent years, ending […]
