Gothic mansion, zombie attacks, and tight red pants........

Must mean I am adding the Thriller house to the ever-expanding list of things to do.

At 1345 Carroll Ave in historical Angelino Heights, you will find the house where Michael Jackson's Thriller was filmed.

Side note, the Library of Congress recognizes Thriller to be the most famous music video of all times.

The house was built in 1887 by Michael Sanders, a warehouse operator.  This 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom house is not currently for sale but is estimated to be worth $1,600,000.  That is serious bank!

This is also the neighborhood to go trick-or-treating in as reportedly crowds of up to 30 people at a time can be standing on porches knocking on doors in search of candy.  One year 2000+ costume clad, candy-seekers visited this Thrilling neighborhood before the night was over.  They must have magical candy.

Officially added to the list.  Wish us luck!

Check out the video here.

Friday the 13th factoid of the day....

So 2018 is a unique year for Friday the 13th. 

There are three ,and they fall on January 13th, April 13th, and July 13th but the creepy factor is that these dates are exactly 13 weeks apart.  What??  The last time this happened was in 1984 (cue the spooky music).
