Gord and Kev visit better days. The YouTube playlist is back!

Gord & Kev blow up the death star.
GordTep.com presents: Thank God For YouTube! Here we will showcase random, unrelated media that for whatever reason left an impact on us. In the best case scenario you will see something you haven’t seen in over 15 years yet remember like it was yesterday. Today we have…
We all know this clip. We’ve seen it a million times on countless VHS tapes growing up. I’m just curious to see if everyone connects this intro with a specific movie.
For me, hands down, it’s Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. The first time I saw this clip it was before Pee Wee, and to my very young ears it seemed the cheezy intro music was specific to the movie because it sounded enough like the rest of Danny Elfman’s classic soundtrack. In the following year or two I would always be confused why different Warner Bros VHS tapes used “the Pee Wee music,” until I came to the conclusion that Warner Bros just really liked the Pee Wee “version” and decided to always use it, regardless of the movie.
Yeah, I came to a lot of dumb conclusions as a kid. Regardless, later in life I would always associate that intro with Pee Wee. Always. A while back, I was saddened to pop in the Pee Wee’s Big Adventure dvd and not see it. It’s just not the same.
(This may be a weak entry to the annals of “Thank God For YouTube,” but the fact alone that this clip lives on YouTube means I’m not unique in my nostalgia for it. If you also have a fond memory attached to it, please leave a comment and let us know. I’ll be back in a bit with more at-home movie nostalgia–only next time it’ll be much more epic.)
2010 sure started out well for us here at GordTep.com. Earlier this evening, Kev & I recorded a show. Sadly, Kev’s computer crashed, and the hour-long episode of 300 Bucks Damage was lost forever. Our attempts to recover the audio were unsuccessful. It also turns out that I actually had a recording issue too. Tangled wires in my new setup created some awful feedback for a large portion of the show until I figured it out and fixed it — that would have made much of the show virtually unlistenable anyway.
So it turns out we just weren’t supposed to do a show this week. C’est la vie. We’ll be back in action next week though. In the meantime, please check out the archives and enjoy some of our previous episodes.
