City of Bones Book Trailer

Nothing really new here unless you haven't read City of Bones, in which case you definitely need to watch the trailer below and then come and check it out.I love book trailers and I ran across this one while searching for another one. This is for the first book (City of Bones) in the trilogy 'Mortal Instruments' by Cassandra Clare. It's longer than most, but it's worth it. I thought it was pretty well cast. Enjoy.

Director John Hughes dies

The voice of a generation or the "philosopher of adolescence" as Roger Ebert put it died Thursday in Manhattan of a heart attack while on a walk. He was 59 years young.
John Hughes was the writer-director of a string of hits like 'Vacation', 'Sixteen Candles', 'Breakfast Club', 'Home Alone', my personal favorite - 'Pretty in Pink' and many others. Just last week I saw a tween-aged girl with an "I love Jake Ryan" t-shirt on and it made me smile. I'm glad he's still reaching the youth of today. I think this weekend calls for a John Hughes marathon.
