Saw it live but can’t say I found it particularly interesting or insightful and I switched off when they started talking about bullfighting.

Well that’s good to know because I couldn’t understand most of what they were saying anyway

Unprejudiced? You mean against people who take pleasure from the sadistic torture and killing of innocent animals. I’ve heard it all now. People who defend animal rights are “prejudiced”. Wow. You win the internet for stupid argument of the year and that’s against some very strong competition.

This thread is not about bullfighting. It's about a casual and laid-back interview with Vicente Amigo, in contrast to all the other more formal interviews I've seen of him. For 6 minutes they happen to talk about bullfighting, in a 37 minute long interview about various subjects. Yet all you can focus on and get from this conversation is the short segment about bullfighting. That's being prejudiced. I, for one, am always interested in what the interviewed has to say, regardless if I agree with him or not. And I didn't imply at all that "people who defend animal rights are prejudiced", that's just your misinterpretation. Just out of curiosity, when you first listened to Vicente's album "Un Momento En El Sonido", did you also stop listening on the second track because it was dedicaded to a bullfighter? And I'm the idiot, go figure...

I agree it’s not about bullfighting. If you read my first reply all I said was “I switched off when they started talking about bullfighting.” I didn’t criticise anyone or even criticise bullfighting, even though I find it morally reprehensible. I wasn’t looking for an argument. I simply stated my opinion of the interview. You then implied I was prejudiced. But apparently that prejudice only extends to fans of bullfighting, not other forms of animal cruelty in your strange logic.

For the record, I can appreciate the music of Vicente regardless of his stance on bullfighting. It’s completely separate. What I won’t do though is waste my time listening to him talking about how great it is (even if it is only 6 minutes - hilarious that you went back to time it). I also unfollow anyone on Facebook if they post anything pro-bullfighting and I would do the same with Vicente. If he was a very vocal supporter and campaigned in support of it I probably would also stop buying his records. Torturing animals is unjustifiable full stop. He is just another ignorant person who hasn’t come to that realisation yet.
