This made me sad today...

You & me both, sister.


He was certainly something a lot of us had in common, wasn't he? There's so much specialization now in entertainment that I wonder if our children will have the cultural commonalities that we did. We had John Hughes as adolescents, the Smurfs as kids, and the Kool Aid man commercials that we can reminisce about today regardless of social status. We all have it in common.

Somehow I just don't think Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers fill that niche.

I'm with you. Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers? Ick.

I know my parents even sat and laughed through 16 Candles when it showed up on TV.

It seems like Hughes' films were directed at a market that had, prior to that, been untapped by anything so 'perfect' and, yet, not contrived. Now, they start marketing to kids practically in utero and kids are so savvy and yet, so NOT. Again, back to Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers. Ick.


I was thinking yesterday about the crappy JC Penny commercial that totally stole The Breakfast Club and made it all lame. Kids today don't know what they're missing...
