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 […]
This and That
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.
I love anything and everything having to do with the ‘80s. So when I started hearing buzz about Stanger Things, a horror series on Netflix with deep ‘80s undertones, this past summer, I knew I’d be hooked. The Grim Cheaper and I finally sat down to binge-watch it in August and immediately became obsessed, staying up until 3:30 in the morning two days in a row to finish it. Stranger Things is literally one of the best. television. shows. ever. It was also responsible for […]
A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with two of my favorite podcasters, Lizzie and Kat of The Blaze with Lizzie & Kat. I’ve been following their show ever since the very beginning, so to finally meet them and hang out with them for a couple of hours was thrilling to say the least! If you are at all interested in Beverly Hills, 90210 and aren’t already listening to their podcast, you need to be! You can […]
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is something I have wanted to do forever. Considering my obsession with Halloween, all things spooky and movie studios, it’s kind of a shock that I had never been. The rather steep ticket prices – as well as the fact that everyone told me I shouldn’t bother attending unless I was also going to purchase a Front of Line pass – are what deterred me year after year. When my best friends, Robin and Steffi, announced that they […]
Growing up, I absolutely loved Murphy Brown. This was largely due to the antics of zany housepainter/nanny Eldin Bernecky, played by actor Robert Pastorelli. I adored Eldin so much in fact that when Pastorelli left the show in 1994, I stopped watching. I was heartbroken to learn of his death a decade later and was even more heartbroken when news came to light that he was being investigated as a suspect in the 1999 killing of his then girlfriend, Charemon Jonovich, at the time. […]
“The next time you check into a deserted hotel on the dark side of Hollywood, make sure you know just what kind of vacancy you’re filling. Or you may find yourself a permanent resident… of The Twilight Zone.” So says Rod Serling at the end of Disney World’s popular The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction. The design of the ride, located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, was inspired by several California locales, one of which was Hollywood Tower, a luxury apartment building situated alongside the […]
It is finally that time again, my fellow stalkers – time for my annual Haunted Hollywood postings! I, for one, could not be more excited! Though I should mention here that postings this year will be rather light as I have two trips planned this month (as I mentioned last week, I’ve traveled more as of late than I ever have before) and my best friend Robin and his girlfriend Steffi are also coming for a visit in mid-October. I do have some great locations […]
The Grim Cheaper and I are currently back east for the next week and a half, which, unfortunately, means I will not have any new posts until (most likely) September 23rd. Our trip is not under the best of circumstances (we are attending a funeral), but we have planned a couple of side trips and stalking stops while on the East Coast, so there will hopefully be some light times, as well. (One of the places we’re planning to see is pictured above. Can anyone […]
