The Mystery Box

I saw this a while back and I've actually watched it several times since then. J.J. Abrams speaking a TED (Technology, Entertainement, and Design). Alot of what he says here I believe in. Great presentation, and what a great story about the Mystery Boxes. This made alot of sense to me when I first saw it, but very much so now, since I seem to be working very closely with a Mystery Box myself.

Directed by John Hughes

Amazing Video Tribute created by Paul Proulx.

Really captures Hughes brilliance as a writer and a director.

John Hughes

I really can't believe it. You were a big influence on me and so many others. Your movies helped me through some tough times, and pretty much helped define the 80's. Without your work I would be nothing. I learned alot about comedy, about pathos, and certainly about life, all through your writing, directing, and producing.

Thank you for making movies that made me want to make movies.

Thank you John Hughes.

John Hughes dies age 59.


Don't You (Forget About Me)

This one's for John Hughes. You made my teenage years so much cooler, and the 80's one of the greatest decades ever. I won't forget. I promise.
