Pee Wee’s Playhouse Opening Theme (Sung By Cyndi Lauper)

Pardon the FLASHBACK – and yes, it’s pretty much a flashback, like drugs 😀

I let my son watch this show back in the day, but I’m well aware that certain parents thought it was a horrible show, addled with drug-induced references and colorful, wacky characters…but this is EXACTLY why I let my son watch it! We still reference it today – I’m not ashamed. I wish more kids and parents would watch it. I’m not sure what it inspires, but it teaches, and I’ll accept that any day.

BTW, Cyndi Lauper does a great character voice similar to Betty Boop (remember her?) for this opening theme. She used the same type for her “She’s So Unusual” album, and while kitschy, it’s brilliant. Her “normal” speaking voice is very sultry, and I’d love to hear her do more voiceover work…

Put me in the job-seeker category – I’m currently trying to find a technical career. In the area where I live, this is actually not difficult because it’s a large city with plenty of options. However, sometimes you just need a little boost or edge in order to stand above your competition to get hired. Be ready for that interview! In these harsher economic times, you can certainly give yourself and advantage as a job-seeker by educating yourself for free. It can only help you.

I found a great “Freebie” website that has some great tutorials, so I have to share – and you’ve heard of this company before. It’s the Goodwill Community Foundation – yes, that Goodwill. They have topics that can give you some more business savvy.
