This is a show about empathy
This is show about bull fighting
This is a show about cat videos
This is a show about death videos
This is not a show about prom queens
This is a show about snails
This is a show about snail fighting
There’s no such thing as snail fighting
Yes there is
No there isn’t
This is a show about Spain
No it’s not
This is a show about lost in translation
This is a show about dying and death and about watching people die
This is a show about Salvador
This is not a show about savlon
This is a show about crying. About what makes us cry. And about when we know we should be crying but really we’re not
This is a show about slowing down to watch traffic accidents on the opposite side of the road
This is a show about watching people get shot in press conferences
This is a show about people jumping out of buildings
This is not a show about ponies. Or cotton candy.
This is Matador(a)
