mariachis!

It’s late and I have to be up by 5 am tomorrow but I just got back from watching Coco and all I gotta say is; Watch. Coco.

Honestly, especially if you’re Mexican (but really even if you aren’t because it’s an amazing movie), what a mf treat to have such a beautifully directed movie based on our culture. You always hear people talk about representation and its importance and you know that it is, but you never really realize just how important it is until its depicted there, in a wonderfully exquisite story.

Everything is in the details. From the big references to Frida, la chancla, mariachi, spanish-slang to the smaller ones like Infante and Negrete, the freaking norteño band that took me all the way back to my hometown; Monterrey, and the pan dulce I suddenly started craving just as much as Miguel’s dog, Dante.

The story is so beautiful, the animation is fascinating, but above all; the music. God, the music.. It made me want to cry for home.

Director Lee Unkrich said that Coco was his love letter to Mexico, he forgot to warn the audience that his love was intoxicating.

anonymous asked:

Is the fuckery coming?

Is the fuckery coming? Nah, It’s just fake, anon. Smoke and mirrors in a grocery store kale aisle. And not much chance that anyone is actually coming there.

But a woman for whom you will happily eat All the Pineapple, a woman who showers with you to be sure you get nice and clean, a woman who has shared a Stiff One with you after shooting steamy sex scenes, a woman who gets to meet face to face with your Sword, a woman who you give the Mariachi Band on her bday, and only after do you warm up the Tuba, a woman who has met your Great Shrimp, and found it to be rather out of the common way, a woman who you let grab you by the Baws, publicly, and with a smile on your face too? That’s a woman it’s a fair bet is coming- and you with her too.

So, not the fuckery, but Cait.

Javier Solís, Jorge Negrete, Lola Beltrán, Pedro Infante, José Alfredo Jiménez, Rocío Dúrcal y Antonio Aguilar

This was at this mexican restaurant near my house. it’s so awesome i sit facing it every time i go.

if you’re not mexican and you celebrate cinco de mayo it’s fine, whatever, but if you celebrate cinco de mayo with sombreros and fake moustaches and fucking ponchos and shit go fuck yourself, it’s ok if you want an excuse to party and get fucked up without even knowing what the actual holiday is, but why do you have to mock the stereotype appearance you have given to mexicans lmao
