Celebrites as Tourist Attractions: Jackie Chan, Britney Spears, and More

Celebrites as Tourist Attractions: Jackie Chan, Britney Spears, and More Sep 19th, 2013 at 4:00PM: Flickr, Donna Grayson Millions of tourists visit Los Angeles every year in hopes of spotting a celebrity, but rarely see anything more than gated homes and unemployed actors in character costumes on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Some enterprising celebrities are finding ways to become tourist attractions in their own right, with live performances and theme parks for fans to see their favorites (or...

Video: Traffic cop gets his Michael Jackson on

Jan 19th, 2012 at 4:30PM: Recently, we showed you a Mexico City street performer giving his own personal tribute to the King of Pop. Now, a Filipino traffic cop brings a little Michael Jackson to his job. Check it out - we're pretty sure this guy would make our day if we were stuck in rush hour....

Video: Mexico City street performer dances to Michael Jackson

Jan 1st, 2012 at 1:00PM: Sure, it might not be "en masse," but this Mexico City man knows how to make his one-man routine work like a full-on boy band. Watch as he grooves to Michael Jackson. We're sure the King of Pop would approve....

Gary, Indiana to honor the late King of Pop with a theme park

Gary, Indiana to honor the late King of Pop with a theme park Jan 13th, 2010 at 5:30PM: It is hard to write about Gary, Indiana without insulting them. I'll admit that most of my experiences with Gary have involved little more than driving through the city on my way to Michigan, but from what I've seen when speeding down I90 has never really been interesting enough to stop and learn more about what they have to offer. That is all about to change, because Gary has decided to...

Tour Michael Jackson's hometown

Tour Michael Jackson's hometown Jul 21st, 2009 at 12:30PM: The Michael Jackson madness continues! When the announcement of Michael Jackson's death circulated around the globe in late June, news outlets went crazy. We watched day after day of non-stop Michael mourning on TV. CNN talked about his kids, his declining health, and the rumored cause of death. E! reminisced about the scandals that plagued him, and his decidedly eccentric behavior (baby-dangling,...

Crane falls in India: A thought about geography lessons and missed opportunities

Crane falls in India: A thought about geography lessons and missed opportunities Jul 13th, 2009 at 4:00PM: Tucked into the news this morning, in the midst of seemingly endless Michael Jackson news and the confirmation hearings of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, was a quick story about cranes falling over in India. The cranes were being used to clean up the debris caused from a flyover that had collapsed. It wasn't that a flyover had fallen, or that cranes had tipped over that had caught my attention as much...

We are the World and Black and White: Ideals that bring us together

Jun 26th, 2009 at 1:00PM: In my post yesterday on Michael Jackson's death, I mentioned two songs that have stuck with me because of the feelings I've had from living in other countries where I've developed friendships and have called various addresses home. In a way, I see "Black and White" and We are the World as fitting tributes to the ideals of what can bring us together. In recent year's we've had Matt Harding's...

Michael Jackson died and a flood of travel memories

Michael Jackson died and a flood of travel memories Jun 25th, 2009 at 7:10PM: Wow! Michael Jackson is dead. Jackson is one of those people who is wrapped up with my traveling life. As a child living in Columbia, South Carolina where wisteria vines draped off trees in our front yard, "ABC" played from my radio, the one I bought when we lived in State College, Pennsylvania. Moving began early for me, and Michael Jackson when he was part of the Jackson Five was one of my...

New York for sale, $35 million

New York for sale, $35 million Feb 2nd, 2009 at 1:30PM: It's not as cheap as seashells, but New York is on the block for a new low price! Put up $35 million (though I'm sure there's room to negotiate), and you could own the city free and clear. You can start smoking indoors and decide whether alternate side parking should have a future. And, snow removal will never be a concern again! Did I mention this is New York, Dubai? A group of 300 manmade...

GADLING'S TAKE FIVE: Week of December 24

GADLING'S TAKE FIVE: Week of December 24 Dec 29th, 2006 at 2:49PM: Before you start rattling off with excuses about how the family was visiting from Buffalo or how you got tied up under the mistletoe, please do me one small favor. Spare the sob story. I don't care why you couldn't get here or what could have been more important than getting your travel fix, but you're lucky that I'm nice and feeling the holiday spirit for I'm giving you the gift of checking out...
