After discussing the new political feud between longtime friends and allies Australia and the USA, a feud that Phil feared might just prevent this episode from ever being recorded, and after dedicating this week’s show to the non-victims of the non-existent Bowling Green Massacre, your friends in podcasting get into a really weird conversation about Frederick Douglass, sanitariums, the weather in Sydney and the 44th annual ANNIE Awards for the best in animation. Then, Dean and Phil roll up their sleeves and tackle more “Celebrity Deaths” than they have ever done before in a single episode! Musicians Geoff Nicholls, Sonny Geraci, John Wetton, director Robert Ellis Miller, sound engineer Richard Portman, and actors Bjorn Granath, Georgi Taratorkin, Lars-Erik Berenett, Gorden Kaye, Desmond Herbert Carrington, Bob Holiday, Frank Pellegrino, Emmanuelle Riva, Barbara Hale, Mike Connors, Sir John Hurt and Mary Tyler Moore are all remembered and celebrated. This week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
With special music, clips from previous shows, previews of two “Live Events of the Week”, memories of 3 “Celebrity Deaths”, a whole bunch of emails, tweets and texts from loyal listeners and two very special announcements, what could this possibly be but the 7th anniversary episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
So, put on those party hats, break out those noise-makers and celebrate seven years of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness changing the way people listen to the internet!
Dean’s jet lagged, Phil spent all day locking picture on their new film (The Lady Killers) and consequently, this show is coming at you one day late …
In keeping with yesterday’s President’s Day here in the U.S.A., Phil asks an interesting question about the 11th President, James K. Polk.
Dean talks of Thailand on the 10th anniversary of the Tsunami.
They both answer a question about the documentary Blackfish before remembering the four show business notables that left us last week (a comedic titan, a Danish film master, a beloved character actor, and a child icon-turned-diplomat).
Then, following a humorous anecdote from Phil involving Alec Guinness, a bay area school teacher and a horror film, your friends in podcasting try to elevate the cultural discourse surrounding the Woody Allen controversy.
Finally, the show concludes with a couple words about women in movies and a killer preview for next week’s show (consider it a cliffhanger!).
Your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, are back from their respective road trips and they have a world of topics to discuss …
The state of women’s on-screen roles in the movies and what that state indicates about the financial health of the industry is explored. A great Swedish actor, a beloved cartoonist and a Monkee are remembered. The impending death of 20% of all U.S. movie theaters is discussed. The potential potential merger between the two show business unions representing actors is analyzed. The way you listen to the internet is changed (as it has been every week since May of 2007).
And, of course, there are always delightful surprises and some big laughs. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all …
