I need a break from all the political turmoil, gotta get back to La Cultura. Luckily, the Aplausos.es iPod app let me know about something that serves up Latino culture with bullfighting, animation, and mucho imagination.
It's called Matatoro -- a short film that demonstrates why I consider bullfighting to be the mother of all artforms. The ritual -- not sport -- is celebrated with all its spirituality. And some humor.
Of course, I know this kind of things makes some people want to take off their clothes, splash themselves with fake blood, and glue fake banderillas to their backs, but that's La Cultura for you. And funny how all roads seem to lead back to political turmoil.
Ernest Hogan watches a lot of bullfight videos online.
