“Bueller…? ...Bueller…?”

John Hughes past away this morning. Here is the story as I found it a few moments ago:

His movies really hit home for this movie fan growing up in the eighties. Quint from Ain’t it Cool News does a wonderful job of expressing one fan’s remembrances. For yours truly, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “The Breakfast Club”, and “National Lampoon’s Vacation” were top of the list of films that defined the eighties.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time. Thank you, Mr. Hughes. You had a hand in shaping a generation of movie goers – including me.

I had no idea that when he retired from the biz, he became a farmer! Though he did do script writing under a pseudonym.

It sure has been a bad summer for celeb deaths...
