Remembering John Hughes

I just read about John Hughes passing today. He was just walking along and dropped dead of a heart attack.

So MANY great memories….National Lampoon’s Vacation; Ferris Bueller’s Day Off; Weird Science; The Breakfast Club; Some Kind of Wonderful; Sixteen Candles; Pretty in Pink; Planes, Trains and Automobiles; Uncle Buck; Home Alone and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Some would call them  lame  comedies. But for many of us, his comedies were about  “life stuff” and had great meaning.

While poking around the internet I found this cool blog called  We’ll Know When We Get There. It’s a neat blog by a lady named  Alison Byrne Fields. And she recounts the days when she was growing up and actually became a pen pal with him, for a number of  years! The blog post, was just put up yesterday, and has already generated  800+  comments!

Read this great tribute/story about this very cool director / producer John Hughes.
