So there's that.

Ever wonder where they shoot exteriors in some movies and TV shows? Too bad, because I do. Here are some real-life iconic locations from the street view function on Google Maps (which is not the same thing as Google Earth).
The hose scene
Jimmy Stewart's apartment
Donut shop robbery scene with Don Cheadle
Six Feet Under
Fisher Funeral Home
"What's in the box?!"
Balcony scene at the end
Driving Miss Daisy
Miss Daisy's house
Back To The Future
The McFly house
They jump off this building in one of the movies. They jump off something in every movie, usually with an explosion right on their heels.
Where Jamie Lee is babysitting. Is this where the murders happen? I can't remember.
Fast Times At Ridgemont High
Brad and Stacy's house. They had a pool, as I recall. Heh heh.
Edward Norton goes to a 12-step meeting
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The sculpture from a scene I don't remember.
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
Devil's Tower, alien landing site and subject of drawings and mashed potato sculptures. Looks almost like a painting, doesn't it?
The apartment building where they all lived. This is also where John Lennon was murdered IRL.
The Brady Bunch
The Brady house -- three bedrooms for 8 people. Four, if you count Alice, but hers was more like a closet off the washroom. I never understood why she didn't quit.
The titular disco at the beginning of the movie.
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
"Can you say.. adobe?"
A nice Friday song from web sensation Julia Nunes.
We’ve all learned the hard way what a wonderful time-waster YouTube is. But, can the site also take credit for launching a respectable music career?
Last year, college student Julia Nunes became an Internet darling when her homemade videos developed a devoted following. The clips were lo-fi and charming—generally featuring nothing more than the adorable Nunes, a messy dorm room and her ukulele—as she sang covers of Kanye West, Weezer, Destiny’s Child and the Beatles.
Now Nunes, 20, has gone global: She’s opened for Ben Folds, is currently on tour in England and recently released her second album, I Wrote These (which, yes, she did). Songs like “Into the Sunshine,” “The Debt” and “Pen to Paper” are melodic, sweet and utterly catchy, and the more melancholy, like “Stairwell,” show her emotional depth. We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: Thank you, Internet!
