Life moves pretty fast...

Well this is just a huge pile of suck. John Hughes died. At age 59! He was just a young pup.

He made my favorites. Pretty and Pink and The Breakfast Club...and Ferris Bueller and Some Kind of Wonderful. Freaking, Weird Science! Jesus. He was great.I have seem them sooo many times. All of his characters were someone you knew and of course you. He captured all of us in all of our growing up horrors. At least to me. Those poor nerds in love with someone they could never have. (sigh) "If I really like a girl I'll ride by her house on my bike. I'll do it like 100 times a day"
How did Andie not end up with Duckie? Blaine? That's a major appliance that's not a name! I guess of course she didn't. In real life, of course she wouldn't.

His movie are just too wonderful for me spout off everything that was so wonderful about them.

So, R.I.P. and damn I'm getting old.
