I am currently on vacation in L.A. with my family and will not be publishing any new blog posts for the next week or so. Our trip is planned to last two weeks, but we are keeping things up in the air depending on how my dad is feeling. I will definitely be back to regular postings the week of August 17th, but could also be back sooner. Either way, my weekly articles for Los Angeles magazine will still be posted each Thursday, so don’t [...]
This and That
Be sure to check out my latest post for Discover Los Angeles, about L.A. movie locations that celebrate the great outdoors.
Don’t forget to read my latest post for L.A.mag.com, about the Griswold house from National Lampoon’s Vacation. My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.
I could NOT be more excited about my latest Discover Los Angeles article. In fact, it might be my favorite blog post that I have ever written! I present to you The Ultimate (and Complete!) Guide to Clueless Movie Locations in Los Angeles: Part I and Part II. This one was truly a labor of love and took me countless hours of research to put together, but I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun stalking! I cannot tell you the number of emails I [...]
I have yet to really hop aboard the Pinterest bandwagon, but I know I’m in the minority on that one. Those who are Pinterest-philes are most definitely familiar with what has come to be known as “That Pink Door.” That Pink Door is actually the brightly-hued front door of a residence in the Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs. The home also pops up regularly on Instagram (do a search for #thatpinkdoor and you’ll be inundated with blush-colored images) as well as on countless fashion [...]
Today’s location would be better suited for a Haunted Hollywood post, but because it is set to be torn down by the end of the year, I figured time was of the essence. While spending the week in L.A. last month with my good buddies Kim and Katie (that’s Katie pictured above), a friend named Becky mentioned that I should stalk the abandoned Sunset Pacific Motel in Silver Lake. The property is more commonly known as the “Bates Motel” thanks to both the fact that [...]
I would like to wish a very happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow stalkers. I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend.
Be sure to check out today’s post for L.A.mag.com, about the U.S. Bank Tower from Independence Day. My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.
I was able to check two major items off of my Stalking Bucket List while I was in Sin City this past March. First was seeing Britney Spears’ “ . . . Baby One More Time” costume at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Second was touring the Neon Museum Las Vegas. Both experiences definitely lived up to the hype.
I first learned about the Neon Museum – aka the Neon Boneyard, aka the Neon Graveyard – years ago while watching the 1989 New Kids on [...]
Be sure to check out today’s post for L.A.mag.com, about the Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead house. My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.
