Be sure to check out my latest Los Angeles magazine article about the Sanderson house from The Grinder, my new favorite TV show.  My articles typically get published in the early afternoon hours.



Gramma-Jess’ House from “Poltergeist II: The Other Side”

Oct 12th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have never seen Poltergeist, which, considering my love of the ‘80s and all things spooky, is rather shocking.  I tried to remedy the situation this past weekend, but the Grim Cheaper was having none of it, unfortunately.  I did recently stalk a location from the sequel, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, though.  I had come across a post on the Then & Now Movie Locations blog about the residence used as Gramma-Jess’ (Geraldine Fitzgerald) house in the flick and became quite intrigued.  Not only […]



The Convenience Store from “Can’t Hardly Wait”

Sep 21st, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My buddy, fellow stalker Owen of the When Write Is Wrong blog, is a huge Jennifer Love Hewitt fan.  Like huge.  He is also a fan of filming locations and, over the years, has managed to track down the vast majority of locales featured in his fave JLH movie, 1998’s Can’t Hardly Wait.  One that had eluded him for some time, though, was the convenience store where Kenny Fisher (Seth Green) shopped at the beginning of the flick.  He recently got a tip from a […]



The Andrew McNally House from “Kingdom Come”

Feb 4th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Los Angeles never ceases to surprise me.  Though I feel like I know the city and its environs like the back of my hand and have spent the last decade of my life researching its locations, I am constantly learning of new spots that I had no idea even existed.  Such was the case with an architecturally unique property located pretty much right in my own former backyard.  A fellow filming location enthusiast name Liesel recently asked me why I had yet to blog about […]



Henry’s House from “Selfie”

Nov 19th, 2014 | By | Category: TV Locations

I was saddened to learn recently that both Selfie and A to Z – two of my favorite new shows of the fall season – had been cancelled.  If How to Get Away with Murder winds up on the chopping block next, the networks will be receiving a very strongly worded letter from me!  While Selfie is (or should I say “was”?) both hilariously written and fabulously acted, it is the architectural house where Henry Higgs (John Cho) lives on the series that has me […]



My Latest L.A. Mag Post – About Casa Walsh and Jason Priestley’s New Book

May 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Los Angeles Magazine Blog Posts

Don’t forget to check out my latest Los Angeles magazine post today – about the Walsh house from Beverly Hills, 90210, Jason Priestley’s new book and how I got started stalking – on LAMag.com.  (My columns typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.)



Leslie Knope’s House from “Parks and Recreation”

Jun 5th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few months ago, fellow stalker Brandon (the very same stalker who tracked down the Skyline Residence from Crazy, Stupid, Love., which I blogged about back in November) emailed me to ask for some help in locating the Craftsman-style abode where Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) lives on the television series Parks and Recreation.  And while I had never actually seen the show, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, is a long-time fan and a few years back had sent me a […]



Charles W. Eliot Middle School from “The Mentalist”

Jan 9th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Located directly across the street from the Larry Crowne apartment building in Altadena, which I blogged about last Friday, is Charles W. Eliot (not Elliot) Middle School – a very unique and arresting structure that looms over the neighborhood thanks to its large fortress-like bell tower.  My veterinarian is located just up the street from Eliot and I had driven by the school countless times during my ten-plus years of living in Pasadena, and whenever my mom happened to be with me, she would comment, […]



The “Larry Crowne” Apartment Building

Jan 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Two additional Larry Crowne filming locations that I stalked this past weekend were Talia’s, the vintage clothing store owned by Talia Francesco (aka the adorable Gugu Mbatha-Raw), and the apartment building where Larry Crowne (aka Tom Hanks) lived at the very end of the flick, both of which are housed inside of the same corner edifice in Altadena.  I found this locale thanks to fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, who, while doing some online research on the movie, came across an old listing on the […]



Jessica’s House from “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”

Nov 14th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Crazy, Stupid, Love. location that I stalked recently was the residence where the Riley family – babysitter Jessica (aka Analeigh Tipton) and her parents, Bernie (aka John Carroll Lynch) and Claire (aka Beth Littleford) – lived.  And I just have to say here that now that the flick has been released on DVD, I have watched it about 100 times!  OK, OK, I am exaggerating slightly, but I do have a serious problem!  If anyone out there knows of a support group for Crazy, […]
