I don’t know how it happened, but reports suggest that the first decade of the second millennium is about to finish. Crazy! I spent a year in France, two years in China, two years in Warwick University and five years in London – it all seems a bit of a blur! Some things, however, have been constant: Movies, music, video games, my computer and watching TV series. And booze.

不知道搞什么鬼,报道说第二个千年的第一个十年地球就要毁灭了。大概疯了!过去我花了1年待在法国,2年在中国,2年在英国Warwick大学,还有5年在伦敦 – 到现在很多记忆都已经有些模糊了!不过有些事情还是一如既往的,比如:看电影,听音乐,打游戏,操电脑和看电视连续剧。以及喝酒。

With this in mind I want to present to you my awards for the ‘Best of the decade…’, in various categories. Some may be obvious, some controversial, some a bit stupid…but so be it.

想到这里,我想让你看看我给这些不同类别颁发的’十年度最佳…’奖项。有些可能是显而易见的,有些会有争议,有些有点愚蠢…但本来就是这样。

I also invite you to put your own nominations in the comments in each category! Just copy and paste this in to the box before you type:

在这里我也希望你在回复里为每个类别写下你自己的提名!只要把这个复制黏贴到方框里:

Best movie of the decade – Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000)

十年度最佳电影-猪头,我的车咧?(2000)

dude where's my car

Ok this might be a controversial choice, but hear me out. People often like films because of the atmosphere in which they first enjoyed them, and I think I’ve watched this movie more times than any other, with more close friends, in more places…and each time I never got bored or stopped half-way through. It’s the ultimate brainless dude comedy – and I love it.

这个答案确是会有争议,可是请听我说完先。人们喜欢电影的原因是因为很享受第一次看的时候的那种气氛。这个电影我看的次数比什么都多,和好朋友看,在很多不一样的地方看…每次看我都不觉得无聊或者看到一半不看了。我想这是最不用大脑的喜剧了 – 我喜欢它。

Best album of the decade – Jay-Z – The Blueprint (2001)

十年度最佳唱片-Jay-Z The Blueprint (2001)

jay z the blueprint

The best rapper alive, the best beats, the best lyrics, the best mixture of radio / club / fight music ever put together. No need for guests (except Eminem, who compliments the mood perfectly), just hot hot hot music!

尚在人间的最棒的说唱歌手,最棒的节奏,最好的歌词,最佳的广播/舞厅/打斗音乐的混合。无需观众(除了赞美到位的阿姆),只是很棒的音乐!

Best drink of the decade – Captain Morgan and Coke

十年度最佳饮品-摩根船长加可乐

captain morgan and coke

Also known as ‘WoW juice’ or ‘PVP fuel’, the sickly sweet and alchoholically potent brew is what hazed my mind for approximately three years and helped me develop (at age 25) an almost-immunity to alchohol. Good times. Three – glorious – years. (A close second is the Raspberry Mojito).

也称’WoW果汁’或’PVP fuel’,怪怪的甜味和烈性酒精调配而成,让我的大脑晕眩了将近3年并且帮我发展成(在25岁)几乎能免疫酒精。好时光啊。三个 – 辉煌 – 年。 (紧随其后的是Raspberry Mojito)。

Best website of the decade – Facebook (2004 – Present)

十年度最佳网站-Facebook (2004-至今)

facebook

After I left University in 2003, I became addicted to using Friendster and then Myspace. They were so refreshing – a new way to chat with and meet people from ANYWHERE in the world, almost instantly. They were fun for a long time, but both sites suffered from their own popularity and eventually became too full of flash widgets and glitter graphics. Facebook changed social networking by taking it back to its essence – communication. Now five (real) years on, it’s still #1 FOR A REASON!

2003年我离开大学,我开始沉迷于Friendster和Myspace。他们是那么新鲜——一种全新的快速的方式与世界各地的人交流和会面。我沉迷其中很长一段时间,但它们最终都由于过高的网站知名度,接受了过多的Flash和图片而遭殃。Facebook利用本质改变了网络社交 – 沟通。现在已经5(真的)年了,它仍然是最棒的!

Best PC game of the decade – World of Warcraft (2004 – Present)

十年度最佳电脑游戏-魔兽世界(2004-至今)

warcraft

What can I say? It’s so good that you think about it all of them time. I mean…all of the time. Like when you’re at work. When you’re in bed. When you’re working in bed. When you’re in bed at work. All the time. If you play WoW and can control yourself, congratulations! If you’re in remission like me, just remember the good times…

我能说什么?它好得让你无时无刻不想着它。我是说,无时无刻。比如你在工作的时候,你在床上的时候,你工作在床上的时候,你在床上工作的时候。所有的时间。如果你打魔兽并且能控制好自己,那恭喜你了!如果你像我一样没缓过来,却只是记得那些美丽时光…

Best Console game of the decade – Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 (Playstation) (2000)

十年度最佳家庭电视游戏机-托尼霍克专业滑板 2(游戏站)(2000)

tony hawks pro skater 2

When I lived in Leamington Spa, I played THPS2. The first game I ever queued up for (and got a free mini-skateboard for it!), it was (and still is) infinitely replayable. So, so good – it made me fall in love with a sport that I have still never tried (and probably never will).

当我住在Leamington Spa的时候我就玩THPS2了。我第一次排队打的游戏(还免费获得了一个迷你滑板!)是可以(现在仍然是)无限次重复打的。非常非常棒 – 它让我爱上了这个运动,我从没玩过的(而且可能永远也不会)。

Best TV show of the decade – The Wire (2002 – 2008)

十年度最佳电视剧-线人(2002-2008)

the wire

If you haven’t seen The Wire, then you won’t be able to understand why it’s not just the best show of the decade, but the best show ever. If you have seen it, you also know that every TV show you watch now is measured against it – and none of them measure up.

如果你还没看线人,那么你无法理解为什么这个片子不仅是十年度最佳电视剧,而且永远都是最棒的。如果你看过,你也应该知道你现在所看的电视剧都没法跟这个比-没一个达标的。

Now, it’s your turn! Write your nominations for the best of the decade in the comments!
