I often tell folks that my two favorite directors* are the Two Johns: Milius and Hughes.
Milius presented the life I aspired to. Hughes presented the life I lived. In other words, I wanted to be Conan or a Wolverine I was Farmer Ted and Ducky Dale.
Gallery 1988 is having a John Hughes tribute show, and one of my favorite blogging artists has produced an homage to Weird Science. Check it out: Montygog's Art-O-Rama!: I want her to aerobicize...
