Mucho tiempo sin verte!

Well, I'm the mod of this community and I was surprised to see that the last post here was July 2010! So I want to liven the place up a bit.

How about posting some of your favorite Spanish-language songs? Maybe recommend a good Spanish-language movie you saw recently?

I love this song.

  First I would like to thank everyone for the help for my last post.  
Now I have a culinary question.  My boyfriend went to visit his family in Monterrey, Mexico. He brought me back a pumice molcajete. Mine looks very similar to this one:

I've been trying to season it, and it seems to be going well. I've been following directions from these two forums : www.cheftalk.com/forum/thread/3747/mortar-and-pestle & chowhound.chow.com/topics/283847

They say to grind a handful of rice with water in it everyday for a week or two. I've done that twice today. The problem I'm having is that since I haven't ground it down to smoothness, the rice paste gets caught in the small pits. I don't know how to clean it though.  I figure it's a lot like a cast iron skillet, and it's probably best not to use soap on it. But I've also been told that pumice molds easily, and I live in a very humid climate. So the small rice paste collecting in the holes has me worried. If anyone has an idea or tips on how to either season or clean one it would be very appreciated.

¿Qué tal? ¡Recientemente, me e encontrado totalmente enamorada con Café Tacvba! ¿Ay algunos fans por aquí?

Me encanta:

Perdón si mi Español no es perfecto. Aunque lo hablo, y soy 100% Mexicana (bueno...aun e visitado al país...) lo hablo mas como Americana. Jeje. :P ¡Pero e encontrado que lo mas que oigo al Español en música, lo mas quiero hablarlo! En momentos hasta mis pensamientos son en Español. ¿Es igual para algunos de ustedes?

It's kicking my butt to an extent that I was not aware was possible.  

That is all.

Well hey there everyone.  My names Haley and I need to improve my Spanish, and my knowledge of Spanish culture. So here I am.  

The reason I need to improve so much is because my boyfriend is directly from Mexico, and his parents English is at best limited.  It makes it kinda hard to communicate sometimes.  I have even taught myself how to make some not so bad tamales. For a white girl ;D

I think I want to major in Spanish and get my TEFL certification.  I'm not positive but I think that's what I want to do.

I'm also looking for a safe, good immersion program in Mexico.  any suggestions?
