Classroom wars: Hiphop vs. Metal

In my old high school, there were only two kinds of boys. Those who worshipped Puff Daddy, the Wu Tang Clan, Tupac Shakur, and Pras Michel and those who headbanged with Cheese, Greyhoundz, and Linkin’ Park. So guys, I hope you willingly share where you sided in the bi-polar world of music and men’s fashion in the late nineties.

“Metal ka ba? or Hiphop?”

The Tick

One of the amusing superheroes of the 90s was The Tick. I used to watch it on RPN 9 with my brother (who introduced me to the show), we’d always laugh at this superhero’s antics and depth (yes! he talks about stuff that are somewhat not what you get from the typical superhero). The show was great because it was something different from all the spiderman/woman, batman and superman cartoons proliferating the tv stations back then. In case you guys kinda have no idea what I’m talking about (nooooooo!) or have forgotten who this guy is, watch the video! Its hilarious!

Arthur!

ARTHUR

Ok, hold your horses people! I’m pretty sure you know who Arthur is (i.e. if you have cable and all – i channel). This was one of my favorite shows because it just tells you what a kid goes through during his childhood. Fighting with your siblings (and getting along with them!), having friends, fitting in school, raising parents (hehe!), and just dealing with whatever kids deal with! In the show all of the characters were animals, can u guys identify what types of animals were there (without using Google ah!)?

Well, that’s kinda hard. Since I wouldn’t know either. Hehe. But I really loved this show. 🙂

Hit me baby one more time!

Who can ever forget this hit song which started in the late 90’s? It’s all time favorite Britney Spears with her 1st hit song “Baby One More Time”

Spice girls on the loose!

Since the Spice girls were  popular during the 90’s, other kids couldn’t help, but act and look like them. Look at these kids, they look soooo much like the get-up of the Spice girls! Hahaha!

Captain Planet: Pollution 0

One of the “coolest” shows back then for me (I’m a bit of a nerd, so forgive me. Haha.) was Captain Planet. He comes alive through the use of the rings of 5 kids who care about the planet. The rings were given by Gaia, she’s like the mother nature or something (but the name actually came from Greek mythology).

Anyhoo, the contrabidas who, aside from the usual contrabida hulabaloos (stealing/kidnapping/etc), are also somewhat obssessed with ruining the earth (pollution/poaching/etc).

What’s funny though is that, Captain Planet fights the pollution but its also what makes him weak. He needs the help of the 5 kids to save him whenever he gets into contact with pollution. Thinking about it now, the show was actually teaching the kids (that’s us!) that in order to get something done right, people like us need to help too and not just rely on some superhero! Though I don’t think it actually it made any difference, some things (the bad ones pa) are still there. Hmm. Anywaaaay, I really liked the ending song of the show also! Nakaka-LSS din, just like the one from Denver the Last Dinosaur.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]

  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
