John Hughes Died…

Apparently he died on Thursday, and I didn’t hear about it until just a few minutes ago.  It’s kind of shocking.  I’m not going to say it depressed me to hear or anything like that…but wow.  John Hughes.  Didn’t see that coming.

 

Here’s a list of his movies I’ve seen.  He didn’t DIRECT all of them, but he was involved in all of these on some level, be it writer, director, or producer.

 

  • Mr. Mom
  • National Lampoon’s Vacation
  • Sixteen Candles
  • The Breakfast Club
  • Weird Science
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • Planes, Trains & Automobiles
  • The Great Outdoors
  • Uncle Buck
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • Home Alone
  • Dutch
  • Beethoven
  • Home Alone 2

 

I guess I’m a pretty big fan.  In fact, looking at that list…I’m not sure there’s anyone whose work I’ve seen MORE of, now that I think about it.  (And “Dutch” was HIGHLY under-rated!)

 

Rest in peace, John.  We won’t forget about you.  (What?  I’m not allowed ONE cheesy “Breakfast Club” reference?  Come on…a man just died!)

Current Listening:

  • Blue Tattoo Mixes…I keep going back and forth on it.  I’m WAY more paranoid about this project, because I have to please the other three guys and not just myself.  I have it to where I like it, I think…hopefully they will too.
