对于流行时尚来说,20世纪90年代都是其非常重要的十年。你或许会觉得其中有些流行风潮根本微不足道,有些令人厌烦,而另一些则酷到极点。但不管你想法如何,在当时的某一些时候,你肯定也追随过其中之一。我是说,拜托,要是不赶时髦的话,十年的时间是多么漫长啊。所以,让我们一起看看那些旧时的潮流清单,唤醒你对它们的记忆。
The 1990's were a big decade forfads. Some of them you might have felt were unimportant, annoying,or really cool. But whatever you thought, you most likely followedone of them at some time. I mean, come on, a decade is a long timeto go without going with the flow. So, let’s see a list of some ofthose old fads in order to refresh your thoughts onthem.
电子鸡和虚拟宠物
Tamagotchi's and Virtual Pets
电子宠物鸡是一种掌上虚拟宠物,你可以给它喂食,跟它玩游戏,给它洗澡等等,然后它就会长得比你最初喂养它们的时候形态更大一些。貌似每隔几秒你就得按几个按钮,这样才能维持这个虚拟小东西的生命。这些电子宠物鸡颜色各异,设计多样。很快,其他一些公司也开始生产电子宠物,外形有小猫、小狗,以及其他更为常见的一些生物,来代替看起来酷似外星生物的电子鸡了。
Tamagotchi's were handheld virtual pets that you would feed, playwith, bathe, etc., so it could grow into a larger version of theoriginal creature you started out with. It seemed like you had tospend every other second pressing some buttons just to keep thislittle virtual creature alive. They came in different colors anddesigns. Soon other companies started to make their own virtualpets that featured cats, dogs, and other more common creatures thanthe alien-like tamagotchi.
宠物小精灵(神奇宝贝)
Pokemon
这股潮流最开始是源于一个电视节目,故事讲述的是有个小孩遇见了这些奇怪的小生物,而后开始收集他们。结果,这些小动物足有成百上千种,从而掀起了一大潮流。之后,宠物小精灵集换卡开始出现了,每两个小孩中就有一个在拿这些卡片游戏。紧接着,宠物小精灵变得到处都是,它们被制成绒毛动物、玩具、电影和其他产品,在全世界引发了一股狂潮。然而,就像所有流行潮流一样,最初熟悉它的孩子们渐渐长大,走出了这个狂热期,宠物小精灵也就随之消失了。
This fad all began with the TV show featuring a kid whoencountered these strange creatures and started collecting them.There turned out to be hundreds of these creatures, which started abig fad. Then, the Pokemon trading cards started appearing andevery other kid seemed to be battling with these cards. Soon,Pokemon were everywhere from stuffed animals, to toys, to movies,and more. It was a worldwide craze. However, like all fads, itstarted to die down as the kids who were introduced to it grew up,and grew out of this Pokemon fanatic phase.
口红棒糖果
Push Pops
口红棒糖果是一种装在类似于口红管中的棒棒糖,但你可以将手指伸进去把棒棒糖从底下推出来。这种口红棒糖果有很多不同的口味。它们吃起来十分方便,时至今日,这种糖果还在被广泛出售,仍然非常好吃,但是这股风潮本身却已经过时了。
Push Pops are lollipops that come in something which resembles alipstick tube, but you can put your finger in it to push thelollipop up. They range in all different flavors. They're prettyconvenient, still widely available, and still taste fairly good,but the fad itself has died down.
男孩乐团
Boy Bands
无论是后街男孩、超级男孩、欧城男孩、98度或者其他的男孩组合,世界各地都有无数的少女为他们疯狂。毕竟,谁又能对一群长相俊美、嗓音动听的帅哥熟视无睹呢?拜这些粉丝们所赐,很多男孩乐团赢得了白金唱片和大把的钞票。2000年之后,这些男孩乐团开始暂时解散,很多成员单飞,专注于自己的独立事业发展,比如后街男孩的尼克·卡特和超级男孩的贾斯汀·汀布莱克。其他人有的向影视圈发展,有的则退出了娱乐圈,过着安定的生活。一些组合宣称他们将来会复出,但谁知道他们还会不会像20世纪90年代时这么受欢迎呢。
Whether it was the Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, O-town, 98 Degrees orany others, millions of girls all over the world went crazy overthem. Who could ignore the groups of good-looking guys with goodvoices, though? All the fans led to many boy bands having platinumalbums and raking in millions of dollars. After 2000, the boy bandsstarted to split up for a while and members focused on their ownsolo careers, such as Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and JustinTimblerlake of N’Sync. Others went into the acting business whileothers settled down. Some of the bands say that they are going tocome back, but who knows if they'll still be as popular as theywere in the 1990's.
垃圾摇滚
Grunge
在流行组合/男孩乐团大为风行的同时,另一方面,垃圾摇滚也开始在音乐舞台上崭露头角。垃圾风格甚至成为了一种时尚潮流,包括穿着破烂的乞丐装牛仔裤和法兰绒衬衫。垃圾摇滚将世界带进了一个更为叛逆的时期。
On the opposite side of the pop/boy band music scene came thegrunge scene. Grunge even became a way of fashion including wornout, ripped jeans and flannel shirts. Grunge brought a morerebellious state to the world.
溜溜球
Yo-Yos
尽管溜溜球这种玩具多年来一直都有,但是这种流行的玩意儿在20世纪90年代开始出现了更为先进的版本。这些神奇的溜溜球其特别之处在于,它比一般的溜溜球在下端停留的时间更长,这就使得用它来玩出一些花样就容易得多了。每个人都从溜溜球的书籍、录像还有朋友那里学习不同的花式玩法。如今,除了有些人还将它当作一种兴趣爱好以外,溜溜球已经和我们的生活渐行渐远了。
Although yo-yos are toys that have been around for many years,more advanced versions of the popular toy started coming about inthe 1990's. These fancy yo-yos had special abilities to stay downlonger than the usual yo-yo which made performing certain trickswith them far easier. Everyone learned different tricks from yo-yobooks, videos, and friends. Aside from the people that madeyo-yoing a hobby, this fad pretty much faded away.
“最近混得怎么样?”
"Waaasssuuuppp"
多亏有了让人记忆深刻的百威啤酒广告,这句现如今流传甚广的“最近混得怎么样”开始为人所知。似乎每一天你都能听见有人使用这句话。人们接电话的时候说,写电子邮件的时候写,发短信的时候也用。甚至有人找到了用这句话来赚钱的方法,把这句话印刷在汽车贴纸或者其他各种各样的商品上。然而,从20世纪90年代开始,“最近混得怎么样”这句话似乎变得更为简化了,只需说“怎么样啊?”
Thanks to the memorable Budweiser commercial, the famous"Waaasssuuuppp" phrase was introduced. It seemed like you couldn'tmake it through one day without hearing someone say this phrase.People would answer their phones with the saying or use it inE-mails and instant messages. They even found ways to sell thephrase, just by printing it on a bumper sticker and various otherproducts. Ever since the 1990's though, the "Waaasssuuuppp" hasseemed to turn into a simple, "What's up?"
天线宝宝
Teletubbies
任何在20世纪90年代当过学生的人都知道丁丁、迪西、拉拉和小波是谁。他们也被称为天线宝宝。这个电视节目原本是打算给小孩子们看的,但却引发了全世界观众的兴趣。天线宝宝说的不是英语,而是“咿咿呀呀”的婴儿语言,与这个节目原本的目标观众使用的语言相似。就像很多在20世纪90年代广受欢迎的电视节目一样,很多周边产品也随之涌现。
Anyone who was a student during the 1990's knows who tinkywinky,Dipsy, Lala and Po are. Otherwise known as The Teletubbies. This TVshow was aimed at young children but generated mass appeal aroundthe world. The Teletubbies did not speak English but instead spokein a gurgling baby language similar to its target audience. Likemany of the popular TV shows during the 1990's there was a lot ofmerchandise released off the back of the show.
比尼宝宝(豆豆娃)
Beanie Babies
谁能拒绝那些乖巧可爱、用豆豆填充的小动物呢?豆豆娃十分有趣;他们每一个的标签上都印有自己的名字、生日和一首诗歌。1993年诞生的豆豆娃最为著名的生产厂家是TY玩具公司。而后,其他公司也开始生产豆豆娃,加入到了这股豆豆娃的风潮之中。麦当劳甚至还跟TY公司合作,将迷你豆豆娃作为欢乐套餐的赠品。如今,市面上依然能够看到豆豆娃的身影,但却不再那么受欢迎了。
Who could resist those cute, bean-filled animals? Beanie Babieswere lots of fun; they came with their own tags containing theirname, birthday, and a poem. The TY company was the most popular forbeanie babies which originated in 1993. Then, other companiesstarted to make their own and become part of this Beanie Babycraze. Even McDonalds and TY partnered up in order to provide minibeanie babies as the prize in Happy Meals. They're still aroundtoday, but they aren't as popular.
其实自20世纪90年代以来还流行过很多其他的东西,这个清单只列出了其中比较受欢迎的几种。回过头去看看这些过去的时尚,在如今的时代重新认识它们也是一件很有意思的事。有一些潮流我们认为很不错,另一些我们会觉得是浪费时间,但无论你如何看待它们,你都知道那曾是你生活的一部分。十年之后,你仍可以保留这十年来你喜欢的东西,然后在下一个十年后再看看它们。它们可以唤回很多回忆,而回忆和时尚不同,它永远不会消失。
Although there are plenty of other fads from the 1990's, thislist was made with the purpose to show some of the more popularones. It's fun to look back at some of the fads and being able tomake new opinions about them in present day. Some we may look at asa great fad. Others we look at as a waste of time, but whatever wayyou look at them, you know that they were a part of your life.After a decade, you can keep all of your favorite things from thosepast ten years and look back on them in the next ten years. Theybring back plenty of memories that, unlike fads, will never goaway.
