There is pretty much nothing I love more than re-creating famous movie/television scenes and iconic photographs – as most of you well know! Though I had long been obsessed with the notable series of images of Marilyn Monroe taken in front of The Actors Studio in New York in the ‘50s, due to the fact that the legendary school moved no less than five times during its early days, I could never figure out exactly where the shoot had occurred. I poked around the facility’s […]
This and That

Did you know that there is a real The Simpsons house? Neither did I. For my birthday earlier this month, I told the Grim Cheaper that all I wanted to do was spend a couple of days at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa (which I blogged about here) in Henderson, Nevada. He granted my request and the two of us had a fabulous stay. While there, my friend, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, texted me to let […]
Sorry to have been a bit MIA lately. I have been travelling back and forth to L.A. over the past two weeks along with the Grim Cheaper and my parents in order to try to beat the heat in Palm Springs (temps got up to 122 degrees last Monday!). I did do some stalking while I was in town – including visiting Southwestern Bag Company, aka the police station from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (photo above) – but there was not a lot of time […]
You’d think I would be sick of all things O.J. by now, what with the recent airing of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and the many stalkings I’ve done of the various locations associated with it over the past few months (you can read those posts here, here, here, here, and here). But when my friend Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, mentioned a couple of weeks back that a new five-part documentary about the famous fallen footballer and the […]
Be sure to check out my latest Discover Los Angeles article about the L.A. locations featured in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I am especially excited about this post as – thanks to a lot of help from Michael Amundson, who worked on the movie, and my friend Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog – a few of the film’s previously unknown locales were discovered. For me, personally, the trampoline location was mind-blowing!
