Today’s post is a looooooong-time coming, friends! Easily the location I get asked to track down most often is the supposed Miami, Florida-area house where Dr. Harry Weston (Richard Mulligan) lived on the television series Empty Nest. I have searched for the contemporary two-story residence off-and-on over the years, but never had any luck. I even got fellow stalkers Mike, from MovieShotsLA, Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, our resident Brady Bunch aficionado/guest poster extraordinaire, in on the hunt, but we […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
I absolutely love surprises! So I was thrilled to receive an email a couple of days ago from my friend Michael with the news that he had written yet another guest post! For those who don’t read IAMNOTASTALKER regularly, Michael is a frequent contributor. His body of work is now so large, in fact, that I have added a category titled “Michael’s Guest Posts” that can be found on the right side of my site, as well as a “Michael’s Guest Posts” tag in each […]
I still believe in Santa Claus. Yes, you read that right. Though I am fast approaching 40, the magic and wonderment of the Christmas season remain very real to me. My feelings on the subject can best be summed up by Francis Pharcellus Church’s famed 1897 The New York Sun editorial penned in response to a letter from eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, who asked the age-old query “Is there a Santa Claus?” Church’s reply, which assured her and the audience at large that “Yes, Virginia, there […]
I consider myself to be a pretty good stalker, but my good friend Lavonna puts me to shame. Prior to my recent trip to Washington, D.C. with the Grim Cheaper, I painstakingly researched filming locations and area landmarks to check out while we were in town and compiled an extensive list of must-see places. So imagine my surprise when, while strolling around Georgetown, I received a text from Lavonna asking if we were planning to dine at Martin’s Tavern, the spot where, as legend has […]
I am taking today and the rest of the week off to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. My mom and I are in charge of dinner this year (it’s my first time ever!), so I’m sure by the time this post is published, I’ll be knee-deep in turkey preparations. I hope all of my fellow stalkers have a fabulous holiday. I will be back next week with new locales. So until that time, Happy Stalking!
I would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you today to all who have served this great country of ours, including my grandfather (that’s him above during World War II), my dad, my uncle, my father-in-law, my cousin, my brother-in-law, my grandfather-in-law, and several of my friends. I hope we all take a moment to remember the people we are celebrating today and that everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
