As recently mentioned over on my personal blog (SMiles Lewis dot com – August 2020), I’ve been trying to resume posting to my various websites. This site is an amalgamation of the remains of an old project with some friends called AnomalyTv.com which became AnomalyTelevision.com …
The video below I came across back in June 2020. I’ve been a fan of Donald Glover’s since becoming aware of him through his role in the 2009 flick, Mystery Team, and his stand-up comedy show, WEIRDO. Until the release of his This is America video in 2018, I was totally unaware of his musical career as Childish Gambino.

Ken Nordine narrated this iconic Levi Jeans television ad from the year I was born.
And here is a tour of his studio…
Farewell fond voice of generations.
ETA (Edit To Add) … WOW! Two more (and another….) iconic Levi’s commercials that I recall from my youth that undoubtedly triggered my love for animation and CGI / video effects:
“Telepathic Lady” – song inspired by legend of Maria Orsic and Nazi UFOs
Mike Watt talks with his guest, Daniel of Dallas band “The Fumes,” about his song “Telepathic Lady” that was inspired by the legends of Maria Orsic, the “German UFO Specialist” from World War II. Discussion begins around the 1 hour 36 minute mark within the March 27th edition of TWFPS – The Watt From Pedro Show. A great episode with a wide variety of musical soundscapes.

Maria Orsic (Orsitsch) (@AnomalyArchives.org)
“Yeah, the Haunebu is part of an elaborate mythos to some degree created by Neo-Nazi groups, such as the Tempelhoffgesellschaft (“Temple Court Society”). This involves the assertion that the original Aryans came from a planet orbiting the star Aldeberan and that they established a colony on Earth — the Sumerians — who were the ancestors of the modern Germans.
Part of this mythos involves Maria Orsitch and the Vril Society, supposedly the evil geniuses behind Hitler’s rise to power. Though Maria and the Vril Society were the creations of Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier in their 1960 book “The Morning of the Magicians,” the so-called History Channel ran a documentary about the centrality of the Vril Society and their influence of Heinrich Himmler.
In point of fact, the only historical basis for the Vril Society was a passing reference in a 1949 article by Willy Ley titled “Pseudoscience in Naziland”, to a society in pre-WW II Germany that was searching for vril (a supposed source of great psychic power invented by Bulwer Lytton in his novel “The Coming Race”). Maria Orsitch (also spelled Orsic) seems to have been invented out of whole cloth by Pauwels and Bergier.”
There is a tiny part of this song that always reminds me of the The Cars’ song, Drive.
