Chillpak Hollywood Hour #266

Your friends in podcasting have been busy! From marathons to moviemaking, from fine art to live events, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness really mix it up …

They launched a brand new documentary project about an artist and philosopher and they hope you will check it out HERE.

Phil co-hosted an installment of the top notch “Combat Radio” show, and he brought along the amazing Tucker Smallwood as a guest. You can enjoy that show right HERE.

Dean and Phil’s friend, filmmaker Jonathan Browning, recently completed another of his award-winning shorts, this one starring the legendary Paul Dooley. Give it (and all of Jonathan’s shorts) a viewing right HERE.

Finally, loyal listener to this show, Mattie Giles, has a film review website you might enjoy. Check that out right HERE.

Of course, Dean and Phil really hope you will enjoy this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, which covers such diverse topics as the historic L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz, the plays of Anton Checkhov, the films of the 1930′s, the critical debate over Prometheus, the under-appreciation of MIB3, some new shows on HBO, Dean’s shocking attitude towards prostitution, and why we really all should just get along.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #265

Energized and raring to go, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are all over the map and spanning the ages in this week’s installment, an episode that can best be summed up by two words: TIME TRAVEL.

You’ll see what we mean as Dean and Phil discuss Old Town Sacramento, Damanhur, Ray Bradbury, the Los Angeles Conservancy, Paper Moon, Boris Karloff, an elementary school graduation, Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, Prometheus and MORE!

Oh, and if you haven’t heard enough of your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, or if you just want to get turned onto another really cool podcast, we hope you’ll check out Getting Better Acquainted hosted by David Pickering. Phil was the guest on episode 60.

Finally, if you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 23, we strongly encourage you to go see David Dean Bottrell Makes Love.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #261

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!
