LFL MIAMI COACH: 'WAY MORE TALENTED'
SAN: CAN'T USE YOUR HANDS

R.I.P. JOHN HUGHES

By / 08.06.09

Jeez, I leave for 10 minutes to walk the dog (masturbate) and I come back and now John Hughes is dead?  What the hell.

The 59-year-old was taking a morning walk in New York when he went into cardiac arrest, according to Michelle Bega. He was in Manhattan visiting his family. [BBC]

John Hughes was the man responsible for:

- Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
- Uncle Buck
- Planes, Trains & Automobiles
- The Breakfast Club
- Weird Science
- Sixteen Candles

among other things.  I’d venture to guess I’ve seen Ferris Bueller roughly 600 times, and spent much of my childhood trying to be that cool.  I often wake up thanking God I had Ferris Bueller (a hero of a high school movie who was witty and popular, imagine that!) to emulate and not… who the hell do kids even idolize these days?  Zac Efron?  Shia LaBeouf?  Stifler?  I don’t even know.  Bottom line, he will be missed. Death is a cruel bastard who never takes the ones who deserve it, like Danny Masterson.
