The Ultimate Guide to the Los Angeles Filming Locations of “Say Anything . . . “

Apr 14th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

1989. The year the Berlin Wall fell, Disney-MGM Studios opened at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, Game Boy was released by Nintendo, and, on April 14th, Say Anything . . . debuted. Cameron Crowe’s romantic tale of eternal optimist Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) and his resolute love for classmate Diane Court (Ione Skye) remains a standout teen romance today, almost three decades after its release, and has inspired countless onscreen and real life imitations in the form of trench coat-wearing paramours expressing their love […]



A Round-Up of “Big Little Lies” Filming Locations

Apr 5th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I’ve decided to break with tradition a bit for this post.  My latest small screen obsession, Big Little Lies, came to an end on Sunday night and, though the finale was excellent, I am bummed to say the least that the HBO miniseries is now over.  During its seven-episode run, I tracked down most of the L.A.-area locales, as well as a few of the Monterey spots, featured in it and I thought it would be fun to chronicle them here.  Because I have not […]



Madeline Garden Bistro & Venue from “Mad Men”

Apr 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have had many different stalking notebooks over the years.  My latest is a gorgeous white Moleskin that I picked up during my Switzerland vacation back in June 2013.  One locale that has been listed in it since I started using it almost four years ago (it’s one of the very first entries), but had never been checked off until recently is Madeline Garden Bistro & Venue, which was featured in a Season 4 episode of Mad Men.  I had seen photos of the darling […]



Jane’s House from “Big Little Lies”

Mar 29th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I am extremely biased when it comes to my former stomping ground of Pasadena, where I lived for close to 15 years.  Though I’ve heard on more than one occasion from L.A. denizens that the city is too suburban and too far removed from the hustle and bustle of urban life, I think it is one of the best places in the world and miss it so much at times it almost breaks my heart.  So whenever I hear of a movie or TV show […]



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 […]



Du-par’s Restaurant and Bakery from “Christmas with the Kranks”

Dec 16th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I don’t know what it is about Christmas movies, but I cannot watch them without crying.  Even the not-so-great ones make me bawl.  Case in point – the 2004 comedy Christmas with the Kranks.  While admittedly not one of the best Yuletide films, the Grim Cheaper and I watch it each year and I cry every.single.time.  After our recent annual watch, I decided to attempt to track down some of the flick’s unknown locales.  The spot at the top of my list was the Irish […]



The L.A. Filming Locations of “Scream 2”

Oct 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

“Hello, Sidney.”  Two simple words, spoken by a gravelly-voiced serial killer shrouded by a Father Death mask in one of Scream’s early scenes, and the face of the horror movie genre was changed forever. An empty house and a ringing telephone suddenly had a much more sinister meaning.  Scream, which will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary on December 20th, went on to spawn three sequels, a 2015 television series, and countless imitations.  Though the original film was shot in its entirety in Northern California and […]



The Blind Donkey from “Revenge”

Aug 12th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

I stalk so many places, typically in quick succession, that oftentimes a few get lost in the shuffle.  Such was the case with The Blind Donkey, an Old Town Pasadena whiskey bar that I visited back in April, shortly before the Grim Cheaper and I headed off to New York, and then promptly forgot about until this morning when I was going through my many stalking photographs.  The site made an appearance during Season 4 of fave show Revenge.  I still have yet to watch […]



“The Brady Bunch” MegaPost

Jun 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Michael's Guest Posts, TV Locations

My friend, fellow stalker Michael, is proving to be a true Brady Bunch virtuoso!  Here he is yet again gifting us with yet another fabulous post about the 1969 sitcom – this one a round-up of nine different locales featured on the series!  Take it away, Michael!

I know, I know. Yet another Brady guest post foisted upon you. I swear, I do know how to find non-Brady locations. However, I had compiled a bunch of Brady Bunch establishing shot sites that I hadn’t seen posted […]
