Happy Labor Day!

Sep 4th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish a happy Labor Day and three-day weekend to all of my fellow stalkers.  I am taking today off in honor of the holiday, but will be back on Wednesday with a new post – one I am really, really excited about.  So stay tuned!



Patapsco Valley State Park from “Serial”

Jul 26th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

Patapsco State Park.  Those three words, the name of a popular Baltimore-area recreation spot, shouldn’t be part of the lexicon of this California native.  But in October 2014, the first season of the investigative podcast Serial was released and instantly became a worldwide phenomenon.  Detailing the 1999 killing of high school student Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for the murder, the true crime tale elevated several local Charm City sites like Woodlawn High School, The Crab Crib, Leakin […]



The Los Angeles Filming Locations of “Glow”

Jun 26th, 2017 | By | Category: Los Angeles Magazine Blog Posts

Be sure to check out my latest article for Los Angeles magazine detailing the filming locations of Glow, the new Netflix comedy series about a 1980s female wrestling organization.  I have to admit that when my editor first pitched me the story, I was skeptical.  The show did not sound like my cup of tea.  But one episode in and I was hooked!  Not only is Glow hilarious, but it centers around a group of out-of-work actors in L.A. – and we all know how […]



My Latest Mike the Fanboy Article – About the “Pretty Little Liars”: Made Here Exhibit

Jun 19th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I am finally back from my surprise whirlwind vacation!  As it turns out, my best friends flew in from Switzerland for 9 days to spend my 40th with me, along with my parents and the Grim Cheaper.  Though we were originally supposed to spend our time on Coronado Island in San Diego, thanks to a VRBO debacle, we had a last minute change in plans and wound up renting a fabulous house in Palm Springs.  It was honestly the most magical birthday ever.

As fate would […]



Surprise Vacation!

Jun 9th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

The Grim Cheaper has whisked me away for a surprise trip for my birthday (I literally have no clue where we are going or what we are doing), so I will not be blogging for the next couple of days.  I should be back to posting on Friday, June 16th, so I will see you here then.  In the meantime, you can follow along with our adventures on Facebook and Instagram – I am sure there will be much stalking involved with whatever we are […]



Happy Memorial Day!

May 29th, 2017 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish all of my fellow stalkers a happy Memorial Day.  I hope everyone takes a moment today to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect America’s freedoms.  I know I will be.  And I will return here on Wednesday with a new post.



The “Empty Nest” House

Mar 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Michael's Guest Posts

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 […]



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 […]



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 […]



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, […]
