Assistant Technician in the College of Engineering
Every week, Entertainment Editor Nick Margiasso will put one of our fine USF staffers on the musical hot seat for a Q & A. It may be informative, it could be disturbing but it definitely will be interesting.
Oracle: It’s our round … at the bar and at the jukebox; what’ll you have?
Juan Cruz: I’ll have a Sprite and “Hurt” by Johnny Cash.
Oracle: What record most influenced your youth?
Juan Cruz : “One Day at a Time” (Editor’s note: a contemporary Christian song). It helped me through hard times. Kept me going.
Oracle: Who wins the fight: Aretha “Big Momma” Franklin or “Queen of Plastic Surgery” Cher?
Juan Cruz : Aretha Franklin, because she has lots of soul. Plus, she is a “bigger” woman.
Oracle: What is the best music for “engineerizing”?
Juan Cruz : “A New Day Has Come” by Celine Dion (Editor’s note: just because).
Oracle: If you had a hit single what would it be called and what kind of music would it be?
Juan Cruz: “Forever and For Always” by Shania Twain. Country. (Editor’s note: umm… I guess we’re lucky to have such a talent on campus).
