RIP John Hughes

Nooooooooooooooo.

Thanks to Alyssa Milano's Twitter feed, I just got the news that the definitive filmmaker of the 80s, John Hughes has passed away.

How's this for a resume of things he either directed and/or wrote: The Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Mr. Mom, National Lampoon's Vacation, Uncle Buck, She's Having a Baby, Pretty in Pink, Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Hughes was just 59.

I'm not sure where to start....
with an anecdote about John Hughes, or should I delve into the fact that you are tight with Alyssa Milano's twitter......

Wow, I didn't know the name, but I certainly watched enough of his movies.

Very sad.

Captain - she's a baseball fan. She wrote a book about it. At least I'm not following Ashton Kutcher or Oprah.
