Movies, Music and Mondays Part I: A Tribute to John Hughes

As you may have heard, this country just lost someone who, in my opinion, was one of THE most talented people to grace said country- John Hughes. In case you don't know who that is- GASP!- John Hughes is the creator of The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, and- my personal favorite- Ferris Beuller's Day Off. (Watch them!)

He really, truly understood what it was like to be a teenager in the '80s- the unrequited love, insane crushes, awkward gawkiness, bad clothes, and embarrassing moments constantly populating life. To quote myself, he is the Judy Blume of cinematics.

I found this link to a girl's blog who was pen pals with him- check it out, you won't be sorry!

I'm really glad I made my essay about his work- I feel like I did something for someone important to me.

Some advice: Next time your crush blows you off, you get a huge zit, etc., watch one of his movies- it's worked for everyone else ;)

Excuse me while I mourn/write Part ll of MMM.
