Contempo Casuals from “Clueless”

Jan 5th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Happy 2015, folks!  Now that the holidays have come to a close, I will (hopefully) be back to my regularly scheduled blogging.  So here goes.  Stalking is obviously my favorite pastime, but shopping comes in at a close second.  So when I get an opportunity to combine the two, I jump at it.  A couple of weeks ago, the Grim Cheaper and I traveled to L.A. for a holiday party and decided to do some Christmas shopping the following morning before driving back to the […]



The “Fancy” Music Video Party House

Dec 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

I have never been very “hip” when it comes to music.  If it’s not sung by Michael Jackson, Michael Buble or Britney Spears, chances are I haven’t heard it.  So it should come as no surprise that when my friends Kim and Lavonna visited this past June and were singing the Iggy Azalea hit “Fancy” every chance they got, I was completely unfamiliar with the tune.  While a few lyrics (“Drop it low and pick it up, just like this!” and “Who dat?  Who dat?”) […]



The “Clueless” Mall

Aug 5th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As evidenced by yesterday’s post, I have been on a major Clueless filming locations kick as of late.  One spot about which much conflicting information has been reported online is the mall (or malls) that appeared in the 1995 flick.  Some sites stipulate Westside Pavilion in Rancho Park was used, some surmise the Beverly Center in Beverly Grove made a cameo and still others claim that filming took place at Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks.  So I set out to end the confusion once […]



The “Clueless” Guide to Occidental College

Aug 4th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While it is well-known among location aficionados that Occidental College masked as Bronson Alcott High School in Clueless, an in-depth guide to the exact areas of the campus that appeared in the flick has never been published.  So, with some help from Mike, from MovieShotsLA, Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and a reader named Rebecca who grew up in Eagle Rock and knows Oxy like the back of her hand, I set out to do just that.

A map of the Occidental College […]



The “Clueless” Party House

May 10th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been wanting to stalk for what seems like ages now is the party house from fave movie Clueless.  Because the property is located in Granada Hills, though, and because I rarely travel that far deep into the San Fernando Valley, it was quite a long while before I finally made it out there.  But make it out there, I did, one dark and dreary afternoon (as you can see above) back in March.  And I can honestly say that this […]



Alicia Silverstone’s “The Kind Diet” Book Signing

Mar 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

 
This past Wednesday night I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to my favorite local bookstore, Vroman’s (which coincidentally just appeared in the most recent episode of Modern Family, but more on that later), to attend the book signing and discussion for Alicia Silverstone’s new lifestyle tome The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet.  Even though I am not in any way, shape, or form a vegan, I was absolutely DYING to attend the book signing because, as […]



The Electric Fountain from “Clueless”

Jan 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Two weekends ago while doing some stalking in the Beverly Hills area, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the corner of Wilshire and North Santa Monica Boulevards to finally, finally stalk the fountain where Cher Horowitz (aka Alicia Silverstone) realized her true feelings for her former stepbrother Josh (aka Paul Rudd) in fave movie Clueless.  I was clued in – pun intended – to this location two years ago by a fellow stalker who had visited the fountain while vacationing in Southern California […]



Dionne’s House From “Clueless”

Mar 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been searching for for what seems like forever is the huge castle-like abode where Cher’s (aka Alicia Silverstone’s) best friend Dionne (aka Stacey Dash) lived in one of my all time favorite comedies, 1995’s Clueless.   Since I had been trying to track down the home for years and had come up virtually empty handed, I recently decided to call upon fellow stalkers Mike, from MovieShotsLA, Chas, from ItsFilmedThere, and Owen – or, as Mike likes to call us collectively, “The […]



The Witch’s House from “Clueless”

Oct 10th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of my favorite sites to stalk in all of Beverly Hills is known simply as “The Witch’s House” and it just so happens to fit in perfectly with this month’s Halloween theme. Although not really a filming location, the house is a Beverly Hills landmark of sorts. Known formally as “The Spadena House”, after the Spadena family who lived there in the 1930s, the house did show up very briefly in fave movie Clueless, during the scene when Alicia Silverstone is “totally buggin’” about […]



Cher’s House from “Clueless”

Oct 3rd, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For a few years now I have been looking for Cher’s house from one of my fave movies of all time, Clueless. In trying to locate the house, though, I had read several articles and interviews about the filming of Clueless, which all stated that the neighborhood scenes were actually filmed in Scottsdale, Arizona, not in California, so I had pretty much called off my hunt. I had also always believed that Cher’s house was merely a set, not a real home. Something about the […]
