Remember When I Used to Write About John Hughes?

Wanna hear something sad? Well sad for me, maybe not for you. I haven't written a post about John Hughes since last September. I know. Oh sure, I wrote about breaking and entering The Breakfast Club High School in April, I threw in the screenplay posts here and there, then I defended him against an article Molly Ringwald… Continue reading Remember When I Used to Write About John Hughes?

I Got Inside The Breakfast Club High School and Lived to Tell

  Last week I did something out of character for me all thanks to my husband, risk taker that he is. So on day one of my birthday week last Monday, Mike and I took the day off to have a date day as he was leaving on a business trip the following day for… Continue reading I Got Inside The Breakfast Club High School and Lived to Tell

Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Seventeen “Chicago is SO Good For My Ego”

  I think it's normal to "see" certain actors in roles when you've written something like this. Right? TELL ME IT'S NORMAL. I see Nicole Sullivan as Kate. You've seen her in shows like MadTV and King of Queens and as of late, Disjointed on Netflix. She is FUN-NY and I would love her in… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Seventeen “Chicago is SO Good For My Ego”

Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Fifteen “You Have a Restraining Order Against Edie McClurg?”

  I could make an entire movie out of this next scene alone. But then I would get sued by the creator of Friends, which is the coffee shop (Central Perk) I used as inspiration. I've used other things in my personal life as inspiration for aspects of the screenplay so far, like: The flat… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Fifteen “You Have a Restraining Order Against Edie McClurg?”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Fourteen- “Is This What I Think it Is?”

The original plan for the museum was to be set in a neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. I had two inspirations: the neighborhood from Return to Me (great Chicago movie) and also the neighborhood where Mike's parents grew up: Lakeview. When his parents grew up there, it wasn't the trendy area that it… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Fourteen- “Is This What I Think it Is?”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Thirteen “FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE”

  Why I write about John Hughes is a question I get a lot more than I would like to admit. Because it means a lot of people don't know why I do, or even who he is and that last statement is mostly why I write about him. I feel like I am keeping… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Thirteen “FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Twelve “I’m Here For All of the Cats”

  This week my mom shared with me an article that John Hughes' widow has her current Lake Forest, Illinois home on the market. My mom and I commented on how her home was so cozy and down to earth for such a massive house. It felt warm and inviting, and that touched me. I… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Twelve “I’m Here For All of the Cats”
