More or Les Host Haiku
Have You Ever Phoned It In?

Yo…first interview of 2017 and I’m starting strong. My guest More or Les who of course released this Doctor Who rap mixtape a few years back…can’t wait to get into it. (His new album Blow the Fuck Up But Stay Humble is outstanding: dense and insightful and witty and catchy).

Only hah…bit of a rocky start to 2017; still stiff from that Christmas break rust. He and I got our drinks, we sit down and I’m about to hit record and…I realize…I left my notes in my printer tray. Man!

Well then it’s Doctor Who, rap and comics…I decide to wing it. Not as smooth as I’d normally like but so be it.

I suggested a narrative he didn’t fully take up…I’m wondering if the narrative applies to other Whovians. Dude was talking about the idea of giving a damn, not phoning it and doing quality and consistent work. Which is a philosophy I and many other talented friends also employ.

My question to More or Les though was some of that Gold Standard sentiment influenced by the Doctor? Those are classic Doctor Who hallmarks and Whovians have an odd and deeper connection with Doctor Who than most nerds with their identifying geek property of choice. Even if it’s not true still an interesting premise and worth exploring.

And his fav Doctor is Tom Baker!! Classic.

Recommended Comics from More or Les during our conversation:
Saga
Sex Criminals
