Many topics covered on today’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour including:
An interesting study on violent video games … Dean’s latest half-marathon … Paul Auster’s The Book of Illusions … A table reading of Dean and Phil’s new film The Lady Killers … The location filming of an intriguing sci-fi short … The movie version of Les Miserables … JJ Abrams departing Star Trek for Star Wars (and whether he ever knew he was making Star Trek in the first place) … IFC’s “Portlandia” …
And even if that were enough for one show, your friends in podcasting keep it coming, analyzing the scarcity of employment opportunities for women behind-the-camera in Hollywood and analyzing this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees thru the prism of the Becdel Test.
Finally, many listeners have asked whether Dean and Phil will be attending Dragon*Con this year and one asked Dean and Phil’s reactions to some disturbing news about where much of the revenue from the event goes each year. Whether you don’t know what Dragon*Con is or even if you go to the annual Labor Day Weekend event in Atlanta every year, you won’t want to miss the return of all-time classic Chillpak Hollywood Hour #121 (Live from Dragon*Con!), available NOW for the first time in more than two years!
Somehow a bet on the Oscars turned into this episode all about television …
The recent Emmy nominations are discussed at the outset and very quickly the show turns into a grudge match pitting comedy against drama, Luther vs. Sherlock, Dean Haglund vs. Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund vs. David Lynch!
That’s right, you’re about to hear what happened when Dean had to fulfill his obligation (upon losing the annual Chillpak Hollywood Oscar pool) to watch the pilot episode of David Lynch’s seminal series Twin Peaks.
The owls are not what they seem …
Much is on the minds of your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness. From wishing happy birthdays to loyal listeners, to answering your questions, to sharing what they’ve learned through the process of making their documentary, they really prove this week that it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. There’s the usual entertainment industry news and analysis, film and television reviews, irreverent insights and informative diatribes. So, enjoy, and if you are going to be in the London area, make sure to purchase tickets for the Saturday 30 April premiere of The Truth Is Out There!
