Coming off the high of recording another MSPDnDDCMP3 marathon session yesterday, I was saddened to hear about John Hughes passing.Â Cliff Chiang offers up his tribute to the movie director who probably did more to shape the lives of kids in the 80s than anyone else.
â€œDear Batman: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in Bat-detention for whatever it is we did wrong, but we think youâ€™re crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is an archer, and a speedster, and a swimmer, a princess, and an acrobat. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, The Teen Titans.â€
And for a truly unique and tear filled tribute to Mr. Hughes, you simply must read this post by someone who was Hughes’ pen pal for many years.
