The Blank Check House

After the success of Home Alone movie studios did not waste anytime copying the formula (kid outsmarts bad guys).  While the worst offender was probably Three Ninjas, Disney was also guilty with Blank Check.  They even used it as a selling point!


I saw Blank Check in the theater, I remember because it was the only time in my movie going life that the theater manager came out and talked to us about how the movie was filmed in Texas (which is where I live).  So, on a recent trip to Austin, I stopped by the Blank Check house.

Here is how it appeared in the film:


And today:


As you can see, they've done quite a bit of remodeling.
Not to mention the heavy plant growth which makes it almost unrecognizable.


The old garage door is now a window



The original entry way has been completely removed.


This is the front door now:


I drove around to the side and found the back gate open.  In the film, the back yard had a pool, go cart track, batting cages, and all sorts of bounce houses.  The new owners must not have liked the water slide from the bedroom because the whole back yard is torn up.



I was hoping the workers would be out so I could ask them for a peek inside.  That didn't happen though, this open window was my only glimpse.


Here's a little info on the house, which is actually The Pemberton Castle


If you want to visit, the address is:

1415 Wooldridge Dr.  Austin, TX

I guess the only thing that has changed more than the house is the actor from the film.  Here is a current picture of Brian Bonsall.


When he isn't out getting neck tattoos, or running from the law, he does a pretty descent acoustic cover of the NOFX classic "Linoleum".

  7. Throughout this awesome design of things you actually get a B+ for effort. Where you lost me personally was first in all the facts. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn't be much more accurate here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did do the job. The writing is actually highly convincing and this is most likely why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really convinced of how you seem to unite the points which in turn help to make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your point but trust in the foreseeable future you actually link your dots better. lash extensions Singapore

My fiancee always do complained every time when we are having sex and sometimes after sex, all just because I was having a small cock and it does not satisfy her the way she wants it. Sometimes, i get weak during sex to the extent I can’t even go for just two rounds, I myself was not happy about it and even before I met her others girls do complain and some even do cheat on me because I am having a small cock. But for this my present girlfriend, I love her so much and I want to marry her, I just can’t stay and open my eyes letting other guys out there taking her from me or seeing her cheating on me, I undergo several medical treatment which did not work out and even eat up lot of my money. One blessed and faithful morning, I was talking to a friend of mine and I seek helped from him on how to get my cock more enlarge so that I can satisfy every woman in my life because I knew he was having a huge dick and because of that many girls do ran after him. He make mentioned of Doctor OGHEDE  and told me never to share the secrete out, I said okay, and he told me everything how he got a big dick just within one week of using the medicine only, it was surprising though and he contacted the doctor in my present and said to him a friend wants to speak with him, he gave me the phone I explained everything to doctor and the doctor said I should send him my home address and full names and promised me that once I started taking it I will start seeing changes after three days because its very powerful and I am not allowed to have sex not until I completed taking the meds for one week. After two days I received the medicine and I used according to the instructions instantly after three days I started seeing changes, and one of the changes was my cock do get up and stand for like ten minutes before going down. When I finished taking the medicine, I called him and inform him and he said I should have sex now and tell him the outcome after sex, which I did in the mid night with my fiancee, she screamed so hard and tell me to fuck her so hard now she is enjoying me the more, throughout good three to four hours I was still having sex and before I cumed, she suck me so hard and the biggest joy about it was my cock was no longer small but was now long and so thick. I called the doctor the next morning and tells him the good news and I promised him that I will tell more people about him so that’s why I am here sharing this great testimony of mine because I am a living witness and I am so excited about it because it has no effect on me, right now, I am the one even running from sex because she keeps disturbing me every time she wants more and more.

How this great man called Dr Isikolo helped me to bring back my lover within 48 hours. my lover who broke up with me since last May this year and all my effort to him back proved abortive. i love him so much that any time i see him with another girl i will be angry. so one day i was going through the internet when i saw a testimony of a woman how this great man name DR ISIKOLO helped her to get back with her husband, so lucky for me he dropped the contact of the man,so i quickly called the number he did not pick i emailed him after about 2 hours time he called me back and he replied my email. i explained everything to him and he gave me full information on the process and what to do. so he told that he need some items to do the prayers for me which i did i did my possible best to get for him to ensure my prayers is done and within 48 hours as he already assured me, my lover came back to me pleading to me asking for forgiveness, he now love me, cherish me and he promise that he will never leave me again. all thanks to DR ISIKOLO, you can also email him: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or his WhatsApp: +2348133261196 and be rest assured of the solution because he is simply the best you can find anywhere.

  31. This is the reason why it is important to abstain from weed 120 days prior to your test. This isn't the only major solution to the problem, but it is without a doubt the most effective. This time frame would allow your hair to grow past the length required for the hair test. As a result, the affected areas of your hair would be disqualified from serving as a sample. The following is a detailed explanation of the laboratory test's main principle and procedure to help you understand how it works.

Film Cameras: Sprocket Rocket

The second camera I brought with me to Walt Disney World was the Lomography Sprocket Rocket. This camera is modeled after a toy Dick Tracy camera from the 1940's.  Like the Diana it is plastic and completely analog.  You wind the film manually, there is a dial for focusing distance, a switch for  shutter speed based on sunny vs. cloudy, and another switch to take the photo normally or in bulb mode (where you leave the shutter open as long as you want).  It takes 35mm film, but because the photos are more panoramic you get 18 shots instead of 36.  One of the coolest features though is that you can expose the entire piece of film, including the sprockets. Here's one that I took of the Tea Cups using Bulb Mode. Conclusion:  I'm a huge fan of this camera, no complaints.  It didn't wind itself in my back pack like the Diana did, and it even if it had, you can wind the film backwards t

Back to the Twilight Zone: Part 2

After the clock tower, the most important set in Hill Valley is probably the cafe.  In the Twilight Zone, the area we know as being the cafe is a police station. In 1985 Hill Valley, it's Lou's Aerobic Fitness Center. The building has not changed that much since the Twilight Zone, all they really did was relocate the door and build that facade.  Funny how Lou went from owning a restaurant to a fitness center 30 years later. Mike Ferris also takes in a movie at The Savoy. The Marquee (and movie selection) was changed when this area became Hill Valley A close up shows, that those busts have been there for quite a while. One scene that really threw me off, was when Mike walked past a drug store. It looks like the clock tower is behind him, and the reflection in the window looks like the post office building, but something about the geometry just didn't make sense to me.  I looked for more pictures of the set fr
