Feelings That Happen When Listening to Spanish Music

If listening to Spanish music doesn't make you feel some type of way, you're listening to Spanish music. And the cool thing about Spanish music is that you don't even have to understand the lyrics, but it still manages to hit a special place in your heart.

It's fills the room with happiness and family. It brings everyone together.

When that one throwback Spanish songs comes on, you get up from your seat and sing to every word of it.

It brings you close to your loved on, especially when Spanish love songs come on the radio. It somehow manages to light that fire in a way that no other music genre can.

Something about Spanish music makes you feel like an expert dancer (or maybe it's all the rum you threw back). But it brings you to a place where two left feet doesn't exist.

...And Sometimes you cry. And maybe it has nothing to do with the backstory of the lyrics, but it brings memories. It reminds you of something or someone.

Pitbull Is A Genius, I'll Tell You Why
You either hate him or you love him, but chances are you've heard of him. You've heard his name being dropped in different songs and you've done the bump-and-grind to his music on the dance floor. He's gained popularity (and money) by spitting one-liners, or just a random concoction of words in music videos. He has also made Cuban slang super popular (like 'dale'), and you've got people who don't know a lick of Spanish, singing along to his lyrics like they're native Spanish speakers. He has certainly built a music empire within the Latino community and beyond. Although there aren't many globally well-known Cuban musicians from Miami, that didn't stop this super star for making quite a dent in the entertainment industry. Mister Worldwide is strategic in the world of entertainment, using the super famous to further advance his career -- some people may say it's because he's talentless. I think it's because he's a true businessman, and he just knows how to target new and current fans alike. Maybe his talent just lies in something differently. He is also a businessman who works hard behind the scenes. He has a TV development company, a line of fragrances, and partnerships with Kodak, Voli Vodka, and Bud Light. However, let's just be reminded that this 3-0-5 guy was first a rapper. Check out this video of him freestyling in St Louis, Missouri: Ayyy. Pitbull is able to tap into the Latin market so heavily because not only does he perform with a mix of Spanish and English, he just understands the culture, specifically the Latin culture within Miami. As someone who is Latina, and raised in 3-0-5, specifically Little Havana, Miami, it's refreshing to see someone to come out of the thick of things, and make it on a global scale. His music penetrates into so many cultures, countries, and tongues. Did you know that Pitbull is also helping out the community he grew up in? Not only is he a businessman and entrepreneur, but he's a community leader. He helped create the Sports Leadership and Management Academy, which is also known as SLAM. The academy is a charter school in Miami that has a sports-based curriculum. 3-0-5 REPRESENT! “I’ve applied everything I’ve learned to this city,” he said. “Our city was never respected when it came to music, even though we were big parts of history. When you have people like 2 Live Crew...maybe their music wasn’t accepted...but you have someone like Luther Campbell who fought for the First Amendment. That gave us a chance to rap about what we wanna rap about. I feel like he got stripped of his history. I said if I ever wanted to be something in Miami I needed to go through the King of Miami; so I started dealing with Luther Campbell. One thing that Lu’ taught me was an independent state of mind. He was putting out his own music with no label. And that’s why we’re here today.” (Vice) Pitbull admits that the music industry is more than just talent, and actually more about business. "I wouldn't want the most talented person on my line, I'd want the hardest working. The one that doesn't understand the word lose, only the word learn." Pitbull is spitting some truth, you guys. The music business, is in fact, a business. And sometimes, the actual music talent plays a very small role. It's largely about public appearances, interviews, partnering with other music artists or companies, and giving the 'wow' factor in everything you do. According to Rolling Stone journalist Simon Vozick-Levinson, Pitbull's fame is only get to bigger. "He's someone who's not going to stop until he takes over the world." Pitbull understands how important it is to tap into the global market, and that is what he is currently doing. With an interview with NPR, Pitbull mentions how the whole point is to reach as many people as you can, to get the message across. Go to any city, and you'll hear his music bleeding through the club's speakers. He's a genius because he understands the entertainment industry and knows what sells. He's not just an artist -- he's a marketer, businessman, a community leader, a teacher, and an entertainer. So maybe he gets a lot of shit for not being the most 'talented' artist, but one thing is for sure: Mister 3-0-5 is definitely now Mister Worldwide. DALE...You on fire. ;)
Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
Make A Fist. Then Read This Card.
So I just learned about something cool today called Kobushi Shindan. Have any of you heard about it? Kobushi Shindan (literally, 'fist analysis' in Japanese) is an ancient samurai personality test. All you need to do to take it is make a fist! So make a fist, any fist, and find out what your personal fist form says about you! Fist #1: Your thumb rests on your index finger. People with this fist shape tend to be natural leaders. You like helping others and, likewise, appreciate being leaned on for support. However, despite a strong exterior, you have the tendency to be a bit insecure. In relationships, you are extremely devoted and expect that same kind of loyalty in return. You put others before yourself, and since you're not necessarily good at words, you put that love into compassionate action. Fist #2: Your thumb rests in the middle of your fist. You're a free-spirit with a wide range of talents and plenty of friends. However, you tend to be afraid to try new things because you fear failure. And despite the fact you have a wide group of friends, the amount of friends you consider close is considerably smaller. In love, that fear of failure makes it hard for you to begin romantic relationships, but because of your kind and sociable nature, you're a pretty attractable potential mate! Fist #3: You tuck your thumb underneath fingers. You're much more introverted than the other two personality types. You're a sensitive and private person, and while you don't have a huge social network, the few friends you do have are extremely close and loyal to you. You hate conflict and tend to internalize your feelings, but your compromising nature makes you very attentive in your romantic relationships, which tends to make them pretty long-term. So which fist did you guys get? Do you think Kobushi Shindan has got you all figured out, or are there some things you disagree with?
