Sad news, man. Really sad news. He was one of the coolest father’s in the movie biz. The crazy part of finding out about Peter McCallister’s death today was the fact that I was actually watching Home Alone 2 this morning with my lady friend when I found out. Just filled with tons of nostalgia as I was dropping lines and quotes just having an absolute blast watching the movie. Decided to check Twitter and boom, there it was. A tweet from TMZ saying that Peter McCallister (the father) had died. Showed the tweet to my lady friend and she instantly went into shock. Like it would be one thing to just simply hear the news on the internet, but it’s absolutely banana land when you’re actually in the middle of watching him act in a movie that came out like 20 years ago. Just crazy shit. I really can’t take anymore celebrity deaths. To many good people passing away. I don’t wanna say it, but seriously, what’s next?
