In an episode several hundred years in the making, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All Time Favorite Visual Artist. Painting, photography, sculpture, design and more, all get discussed in depth in a rousing conversation between Dean and Phil. It’s the 8th Top Ten show of this year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
How else would Year Six of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begin, but with an on-air production meeting? Of course, having been away from the Rational Exuberance offices (inside an “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”) for the past two weeks, your friends in podcasting have many logistics to discuss, including their end of the Mayan Calendar show and the production of not one, but TWO sequels to their documentary The Truth Is Out There.
Dean discusses his road trip adventures in art, from studying Van Gogh in Philadelphia, to painting portraits in the West Hills of Texas, as well as the status of his Kickstarter campaign to create the graphic novel “Shock and Awesome”.
Phil discusses his travels throughout the UK, including screenings at Goldsmiths College, the University of Lincoln and the Birmingham UFO Group, attending the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival, co-presenting Alex Lewczuk’s top-notch Siren FM “Midweek Drive” shows, investigating the mystery of the Lincoln Cathedral, interviewing fascinating figures throughout the UK on topics ranging from bees to airport security scans, from Mary Magdalene to utopian societies.
Oh, and what’s the deal with all the strange cats in Brighton?!
All that, plus the books Dean and Phil are reading and plenty of big laughs. How could there not be big laughs? After all, your friends in podcasting are jet lagged!
Dean flew back from Austin, Texas (on United), and Phil flew back from New York City (on JetBlue) just to bring you this evening’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. They begin the show by regaling you with tales of airline awfulness, before holding court on the sights, sounds and tastes of their weekend adventures. Such artists as Benini, Judy Chicago and Rene Magritte get discussed and such locales as Highline Park, the Brooklyn Esplanade and the West Hills of Texas get described. Global issues are tackled as well, from the World Cup to a remarkable discovery in Afghanistan, from the BP oil spill to urban renewal. Your friends in podcasting still discuss show business, of course, and this week they tackle The Hollywood Reporter, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Steven Seagal, remakes from the 80’s and ill-advised sequels and remakes on the horizon. It’s a pretty darn hilarious hour. How could it not be when Dean and Phil are reunited and it feels so good?!
