My Mazamet

Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho

Viral- in this case because it cuts to the bone (in Spanish)

Superb video. Over 3 million views thus far. In case you want subtitles click on the cc button at the bottom right of the screen (right next to the settings button.)

—-OOOPS, sorry, just checked the subtitles, they’re all wrong. I’ll translate asap.

My name is Amarna Miller

I’m a porn star, and I was born in a hypocritical country

Where the same people who call me a whore

Masturbate to my videos.

A country that loves life* (Catholic reference)

But permits killing in the name of art.

A country outraged by corruption

But that continues to vote for thieves.

Where we bail out the banks who in turn

Evict thousands of our families.

A country that calls itself secular,

While awarding medals to Virgins.

Who treats those who emigrate (out of Spain) as heroes,

While treating those who migrate (to Spain) as trash.

A country where the alleged guardians of morality

Turn out to be the most dangerous amongst us.

Where prostitution is still not legal,

But every year the number of clients grows.

A country who thinks of itself as open and tolerant,

But where a (football) referee receives death threats for being gay.

Yes, we live in a country which is profoundly hypocritical;

But some of us will not give up.

    Can you do it in iambic pentameter if you don’t mind please?

    I am glad to hear some will not give up. From wrong to wrong the exasperated spirit moves
    unless restored by that refining fire
    where you must move in measure, like a dancer

    I love her voice. I speak no Spanish and almost don’t need the translation.

    Un pais donde la droga es illegal, pero la gente se drogean. Un pais donde esta proibido matar, pero el numero de homocidios esta aumentando. Un pais en donde se dicen: no debes golpear tu mujer, y aun existen hombres que golpean mujeres… ahora bien, que compres mi erotica!
    That’s easy. Maybe I can go to Spain and get a job with an advertising agency!

    • Slightly more subtle. A police officer committing a crime is different from a common criminal committing a crime. One of those had the trust of the public deposited in him 😉

        Some of the commentaries were attacking people entrusted with public morals, others were the exact sort of meaningless juxtapositions above.

    Salon Erotico’s Slogan should be: dar una paja, por Espana!

    Brilliant, except for one part… It’s missing bull fighting.

      Scrap that… Just watched the video, and it’s there: “killing in the name of art.”

      Okay then, the video is perfect!
