comment Exact translation of “'round midnight”
"round midnight" isn't even an English phrase... Do you mean "Around midnight?"

comment When is it appropriate to use 'ser' versus 'estar'?
+1, good answer. I'll also mention, for the benefit of the asker, that it would be possible to say "Este es más barato" and "Este está más nuevo", but the connotation changes completely. "es más barato" speaks of the quality of the item, i.e. it's of inferior quality. "está mas nuevo" speaks of the condition (not the age) of the item, as in, perhaps it's cleaner, less worn, or generally has a newer appearance, but over time it might become "more old".

comment Whats the meaning of mexican expresions
Welcome to Spanish.SE! These are good questions, but we need to limit ourselves to one question per post, so this should be two separate posts. Also, we want you to do some research, and ask when you get stuck. What is your best guess on the meaning of these phrases? What, specifically, confuses you about them?

comment Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Just a suggestion, it's probably not a good idea to translate English idiomatic phrases to Spanish for your flash cards. As your question demonstrates, an idiomatic translation has practically nothing to do with a literal translation. If your goal is to learn the Spanish phrase, great, but if your goal is to learn the Spanish word for "actions", it would be better to use a non-idiomatic English phrase as your source.

comment What's the Spanish expression for 'In a nutshell'?
"In a nutshell" isn't quite the same as "through not a very long set of information." It's more like "The general shape of", or "the most important parts."
