This week: Updates on Dean Haglund’s forthcoming performances at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, on his graphic novel (sounds like there’s been progress), on a play he has been writing for decades (!) and on the book he recently had published!
This week: Phil offers a “mea culpa” to the makers of the new episodic “Star Trek”, he marvels at some of the great on-screen friendships, he ruminates on the differences between filmmakers, artists and geniuses, he champions (once again), the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, he asks Dean about bitcoins, he weighs in on a “Live Event of the Week” and he and Dean remember three individuals in “Celebrity Deaths”.
Every week: Your friends in podcasting change the way you listen to the internet!
The missing Malaysian Airlines Flight? Political correctness? Human decency? Crowd-sourcing? Movie Studio Tent-poles? The return of Kevin Costner? Role-playing games? Joss Whedon? Veronica Mars? Marathons?
If you are looking for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, this must be the place!
This week’s show begins with a quote from Albert Einstein and ends with a quote from playwright Martin McDonagh. In between, Dean and Phil wade around in the deep end of the pool, discussing such topics as the weight of the human soul, the mysterious lights that recently appeared (for eight nights in a row) over Lake Erie, the Spiral that opened in the skies of Norway in November, how artists might be responsible for the events of 9/11, why your friends in podcasting have a hard time believing all this “freedom is dead” talk they’ve been hearing, and why Phil has heard just about enough religion-bashing. Plus Phil reports on his trip to the Big Apple, including the three plays he saw and the two meetings he had with loyal Chillpak Hollywood Hour listeners.
