There's a certain song from what could possibly be my favorite movie of all time, Habana Blues, named "Arenas de Soledad," which pretty much makes me feel as if though I'm at the place I need to be in (Spain), and I could listen to in any mood and feel better afterward.

I want to know, are there any songs, whether Spanish, English, or both, that become more and more harmonious as you keep on listening to them? Music is the language of the world, and I think we hispanophiles know a good thing or two about how important language is. Does it matter to you personally if you can fully understand the words or not?

(If I'm supposed to put videos under an LJ-cut, please let me know! I only saw that it was needed for larger pictures, NSFW material, and long text, but I wasn't completely sure).

"Cecilia Lopez, a student who is the first person from her family to go to college, sees something of herself in the first Hispanic woman to be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court."


What do you guys think about this? I think it's obviously a significant step in showing that you don't have to come from a rich white family to be prosperous and successful in America. And it shows that Latinos are an important part of the fabric of America that shouldn't be overlooked. Hopefully this will be a good example of someone breaking stereotypes and it will further the acceptance of Latinos as a vital part of America.

name your favorite spanish-speaking movies, or movies set in a spanish-speaking country!

mine is Y Tu Mamá También.

In Mexico, two teenage boys and an attractive older woman embark on a road trip and learn a thing or two about life, friendship, sex, and each other.

directed by Alfonso Cuarón starring Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, and Maribel Verdú.

I am at a loss.

For weeks I have been trying to figure out how to get this community going, and I have come up with nothing. All I can think of is for everyone to share their favorite musicians and movies.

So that's what we'll do, for now. Comment to this post talking about your favorite bands, singers, movies, actors, etc. Tell us how you first discovered them, and why you love them. I'll start.

My favorite Hispanic band is La Ley. I think I just discovered them through related videos on YouTube. I became addicted once I realized how amazing their music is. Even though I discovered them only after they broke up, I'm still holding out for a reunion. ;)

I'm afraid I haven't seen enough Hispanic movies to know what my favorite one is. There are a lot I've seen that are good and I hope to see more.

P.S. If you have any suggestions for activities, discussions, whatever we can do to get this community rolling, please let me know! Thanks. :)

Hey everybody!

I've added some more interests, mostly people, but I know I can't think of every single famous actor, musician, writer, artist etc., so... I need your help.

Comment on this post with people, events, places, time periods, whatever you can think of, and I'll add them to the interests. There are so many different explorations, revolutions, movements, people... I can't think of them all myself, so I'll need some help.
