Independence Day (Día de la Independencia) is a Mexican holiday to celebrate the “cry of independence” on September 16, 1810, which started a revolt against the Spaniards. It follows from the day of the Cry of Dolores (El Grito de Dolores), on September 15.
I’m not proud of most of the citizens on Mexico or my president, but i am surely damn proud of the country itself. I love the music, i love the food, i love the places, so here’s some of my favorite musicians that proudly represent Mexico! Pinta tu madre patria de colores, so you can’t tell the difference entre los others.
VIVA MÉXICO CABRONES.

Clara, mi madre murió hace 15 años; desde entonces, el único parecido que he encontrado con ella es Clara Aparicio, alguien a quien tú conoces, por lo cual vuelvo a suplicarte le digas me perdone si la quiero como la quiero y lo difícil que es para mí vivir sin ese cariño que ella tiene guardado en su corazón.
Mi madre se llamaba María Vizcaíno y estaba llena de bondad, tanta que su corazón no resintió aquella carga y reventó.
No, no es fácil querer mucho…
Imagine, Jikook 2nd cover song - Secret Love Song! *and it's became the funeral day for all Jikook trash* XD
HOW DID YOU KNOW ABOUT MY SECRET TRASH SONG.
Honestly, this is literally the song I make personal memes about like everyday and I have written like my own twisted version of it inside my head (don’t ask.) and “sing” (i can’t hit those notes. lol.) it on a nightly basis to piss off my neighbours :D
BUT YES. WHY CAN’T HE HOLD HIM IN THE STREET. WHY CAN’T HE KISS HIM ON THE DANCE FLOOR. I WISH THAT THEY COULD BE LIKE THAT. THAT THEY COULD BE LIKE THAT. CAUSE HE’S HIS. OMG.
WHY CAN’T THEY SAY THAT THEY’RE IN LOVE.THEY SHOULD JUST SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.
To celebrate May 1st/International Workers Day, I’ll explain a bit about this famous photography.
This picture was taken by Hans Guttmann (also known as Juan Guzmán) on the 21st of July, 1936, at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, at the top of Hotel Colón in Barcelona, Catalonia.
The girl is Marina Ginestà i Coloma (January 29 1919 - January 6 2014), at the moment aged 17. She was an antifascist militian, journalist, and translator. After this picture, she never held a gun again. Instead, she helped by translating international news and books, writing in newspapers, and by being a correspondent for foreign newspapers.
She was captured in Alicant, and moved to a concentration camp. After some weeks, she was liberated and escaped with her boyfriend to France, but he died while trying to cross the Pyrinees. In France, Marina found her family and all of them were taken to the internment camps of Argelès-sur-mer and Agde. When the nazis invaded France, they left on exile on a boat that said it was going to Mexico, but went to the Dominican Republic. In 1946, she left the Dominican Republic because of the persecution led by the dictator Rafael Trujillo, and went to Venezuela. She moved to different countries for the rest of her life, and in the end died in Paris when she was 94.
Even though this picture became one of the most famous from the Civil War, Marina Ginestà didn’t know about it until a few years before dying.
On this day, February 23rd in 1958, Juan Manuel Fangio was kidnapped by Cuban revolutionaries two days before the Cuban Grand Prix. His kidnapping was purely for Fidel Castro’s political views with bringing attention to himself, and Fangio was not hurt in the whole debacle.
