So, I went to the library and found a tape set that claimed it would teach you Spanish even if you were unteachable. Sounded like me. It was called Gonzo Spanish or something like that. After several days I had broken thru to the meaning of "¿Que paso?" and "¿Que pasa?" I understood that "¿Que paso?" meant, "What's happening?" and "¿Que pasa" meant "What's wrong?" Or was it the other way around. That didn't matter. I already had a song brewing.

I had written the music for one film by Geoge Sluizer, RED DESERT PENITENTIARY, and he had used one of my songs in his movie, THE VANISHING so I was confident that I could write something for his next film, THE STONE RAFT. He DID use the theme from RED DESERT PENITENTIAY in a scene where a car passes and you hear it playing on the radio.

And then there's THE HAND OF GOD. We were making a film, SURVEILLANCE, where the cast was also the crew. About a serial killer that turns the tables on some college girls that think they are wise to him. I thought I'd write a really bad song, so I did. What is that expression about a sow's ear. This may be the exception that disproves the rule. jmt
