Paris, Texas

This film and this score is from 1984 . . .it is wonderful - utterly nihilistic, surreal, absurd and touching. Natassja Kinski is beautiful, Harry Dean Stanton is so real. Wim Wenders at his best. A mood that inspires me into this new decade that we have entered .

This song, by Ry Cooder, gives me goosebumps, a feeling I cannot describe . . . longing perhaps. . . it inspires me. How classics do not age, nor die and is as relevant now as ever. Then again, I am a fool for contrast, deserts and absurdity.
