WHAT?! YES. YES.
that tree looks so happy that it is receiving a hug from this child
"if you’re 18 why do you still ask your parents for permission"
I seriously thought it was normal to ask permission to do things from the people that own the house you live in and provide for you, even if you’ve reached the magical age of 18. I’m going to continue being polite and nice to my parents until they are no longer around. I seriously thought that this was normal.
It IS normal. At least in my country.
Thank you for taking a moment to look at this.
DUDE. not because I live in the city means I don’t study our culture, and just because people live in the rural part means they know everything about Mexican culture.
Yes I don’t know everything cause our culture is extremely vast, in every state they have different traditions. But I’ve been to different states to learn about them and my family IS from rural mexico.
So I still don’t understand what are you trying to say
DUDE. I’M FROM FUCKIN MEXICO. I LIVE IN FUCKING MEXICO.
What the fuck is a Mexican barbecue, where are you from, from Mexico?
I was referring to the way most ignorant people from the outside think we dress like that on daily basis. Yes I’ve been told plenty of times by foreign people if I use a poncho and a sombrero. We dress like anybody else, with t-shirts and jeans and stuff. Yes Mariachis dress like that BECAUSE THOSE ARE THEIR COSTUMES. THE WAY THE ARE SUPPOSED TO DRESS BECAUSE OF THEIR PROFESSION. Not because they dress casual like that.
And I think what you are referring to is the way the people on the north dress kinda like cowboys. We call them “como narcos” If thats not it, then I don’t know what are you talking about.
I SAID THAT BULLFIGHTS HAVE THEIR ORIGINS IN SPAIN, NOT IN MEXICO. We are not that used to bull fights in here, even if we have Plaza México.
the username wars are over. the last and greatest one has been found. finally, we can rest
Just one word. GORGEOUS.
As a Mexican, I couldn’t be happier about how the animation and the story described so perfectly how, “Dia de Muertos” ( day of the dead) is in here, how we feel it, how it is literally a party full of life even if it’s for our beloved dead ones.
Even though some things didn’t fit with our actual culture in the movie (Like the bullfights, they are actually from Spain, not from Mexico), and they seemed kind of “Americanized” or they left the wrong impression. BUT, the way the characters were, the details in the drawings and in the backgrounds, everything had that Mexican touch, and it was beautifully done.
And even though it is a movie for children, I LOVED IT.
Oh and one more thing. We don’t use sombreros anymore or dress the way they were dressed at these times. Yes, looong time ago mexicans dressed like that but not anymore. Thank you.
While waiting for The Book of Life to be released in theaters, why not watch this amazing short film to pass the time. You won’t regret it. :)
