Chillpak Hollywood Hour #256

Has there ever been a more wild and free-wheeling grab bag of topics on a single installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as there is on this week’s show? Consider the topics discussed:

The mysterious death of Thomas Kinkade, the occult meaning of words and symbols, Dean Haglund running a 5K race, the legacy of Mike Wallace, the films of Guy Maddin, the latest in the MPAA’s battle with The Weinstein Company over the rating of Bully.

All that, plus your friends in podcasting weigh in on a documentary about Comic-con, a Woody Allen drama, a John Cassavetes classic, two great, award-winning independent films from last year (one from the UK, one from South Korea).

And on top of all of that, we even have a brand new theme song by The B-Film Extras!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #197

Your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness dish the latest dirt on their creative undertakings (The Truth Is Out There, Atlantis Down, Chillpak) before attacking the wild wild west that is the entertainment landscape … Dean and Phil weigh in on Netflix, YouTube, GoogleTV, Hulu, CurrentTV, MGM, Disney, Regent, the Oprah Winfrey Network … And more … Enjoy and share with your friends. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #177

It’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the U.S. and Phil takes a few minutes to discuss a cause that is very dear to him. Dean got back from the world premiere of his new film, Atlantis Down, in Virginia and he gives us the low-down. Dean and Phil remember the many (and varied show biz luminaries who died this past week): Comedian Greg Geraldo, actress Gloria Stuart, actor Tony Curtis, director Arthur Penn and writer-producer Stephen J. Cannell. As always, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, so your friends in podcasting take time to answer questions from YOU, their listeners … This week, questions about the state of cinema projection (is it a dying art), and the state of film criticism (or lack thereof), is it indicative of a much larger social problem? Buckle up, it’s everything you’ve come to expect from Haglund and Leirness, plus a little bit more!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #135

This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour comes with the following warning to users: The phrase “free-balling it” gets used often, and always incorrectly, by Phil. And from that point on, everything from “stocking stuffers” to “short-handing it” to Dean’s reference to dwarfs, seems to carry dark euphemistic connotations. Forgive us, we’re drunk on the holiday spirit. And egg nog. Dean reveals some truly tantalizing tidbits about his role in the just wrapped science-fiction film ATLANTIS DOWN. Phil follows up on last week’s show with critic Luke Y. Thompson, to rail against a truly reprehensible review by a theater critic. Dean and Phil continue to examine the role of critics, the function and importance of criticism, and even mention some of the critics awards’ being handed out like candy. Finally, Phil shares a couple of inspirational stories about individuals he knows who are living proof that there is no expiration date on people’s dreams.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #133

Phil Leirness is back from the east coast, and he brings with him a suitcase full of stories, ranging from the White House State Dinner crashers to Japanese “herbivores” to his own debut on the Broadway stage! Plus, he plugs the next production from Rational Exuberance and an interview he will be doing on Blog Talk Radio’s Good Karma Stories hosted by Ed Moy.

Dean Haglund is taking off for the east coast, for a starring role in a sci-fi horror adventure Atlantis Down. He previews that experience and discusses how his dance training has come in handy both as an actor and as a performer in action sequences.

Finally, ’tis the season for giving, so Dean and Phil leave you with a musical gift: A short snippet of the theme song from their forthcoming documentary The Truth Is Out There, written and performed by The B-Film Extras.
