Originally Aired: 11/27/20 – We review Jiu Jitsu. We talk with hip hop artist More or Les about The Human Condition and we also talk about the short film First Bite from Vincenzo Nappi.

Show Notes:

FRIENDLY PANDEMIC REMINDER: Wear a mask, wash your hands (<20 seconds), cough/sneeze into your elbow, stay 6 feet apart and only go outside if it’s necessary. Also, DON’T HOARD!

We talk about the short film First Bite. Written & Directed by Vincenzo Nappi starring Catherine Saindon, Hana Kashaf and Martin Kramer. Alex is struggling in a venue bathroom as she finds herself ill at a metal concert.

Our review of Jiu Jitsu starring Alain Moussi, Nicolas Cage and Marie Avgeropoulos. Every six years, an ancient order of jiu-jitsu fighters joins forces to battle a vicious race of alien invaders. But when a celebrated war hero goes down in defeat, the fate of the planet and mankind hangs in the balance.

We also talk with hip hop artist More Or Les. Les returns to the program to talk about his latest album, The Human Condition, available now! The album explores mental health, including some of his own personal challenges. Hot off the heels of his introspective observations of Life with COVID-19 in the Spring 2020 release “Normal 2.0”, More Or Les is back with The Human Condition, a full-length album exploring topics of mental and emotional health in rhyme form. On this 60-min. long-player, Les warns you to be wary of sociopaths (“Assholes”), self-righteous folk (“You’re Right!”) and fake fools (“Uncanny Valley” and “(Fri)endship”), while at the same time revealing some of his own mental and emotional health challenges (“Just Anxious”, “Overwhelmed”). All of this combined with bumpin’ boom-bap, jittery future beats and blazing scratches – the lion share of each provided by Les himself – The Human Condition is a grand endeavour to get people to think a little more, ignore their own needs for the sake of others a little less, and “chill the fuck out and just max” a whole lot more! 

It was a great show!
