Chillpak Hollywood Hour #315

We hope everyone in the USA had a great Memorial Day, and that the rest of the world enjoyed Monday.

It was quite a trial getting this episode to you as several wordpress sites on several different servers were under attack. No attack can silence your friends in podcasting for long, however, and this week, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are on fire!

They discuss several “Live Events of the Week”, including a forthcoming Live Event Dean and Phil will be attending – Paranoia Con in San Diego (July 19-21), sponsored by Paranoia Magazine. And while they’re on the topic of San Diego, they discuss a very cool UFO sighting that took place recently at the haunted Edgemoor Barn in Santee.

They analyze the glut of apocalyptic-themed films as well as the mad dash to remake or reboot every 1960′s spy show.

They “trek” back Into Darkness, examining the conspiracy theories contained in Star Trek Into Darkness and the lack of good roles for women in the film, as well as the precedent-setting endorsement battle that’s taking place as a result of the film’s stars Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy doing a short film for Audi.

This leads to the topic of product placement as it pertains to their very own The Lady Killers.

All that, plus Judy Garland is appreciated, a rock legend is remembered, and a good fight is won in Portland, Oregon.

Full of riotous humor, inspiring insight, and “Brechtian existential musings”, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.


Chillpak Hollywood Hour #307

What do Will Smith, Danny De Vito and Madonna have in common? They were all mentioned TWICE in this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …

Dean talks about Wondercon. Phil talks about Lifetime movies, spending Easter working on a short film about the last man on Earth to believe in God, and shooting in Chinatown.

Dean gets asked about the art work he’s creating for his Kickstarter backers and for his graphic novel. Phil gets taken to task (rightly so) about misspelling a listener’s name.

Dean and Phil both talk about their last movie together (The Truth Is Out There) and their upcoming movie (The Lady Killers).

Dean and Phil discuss Stanley Kubrick, The Shining, Room 237 and a question from listener Shaun Parker about whether “conspiracy theories” are an art form.

A music legend, a beloved character actor and 300 German circus fleas are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”.

Sherlock Holmes stars in the “Lawsuit of the Week”.

Stop reading and enjoy the show. Now. And tell a friend.
