Is it safe to say that there’s something for everyone on this week’s show? Consider …
Your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s trip to Fargo for ValleyCon and the Fargo Fantastic Film Festival as well as Phil’s producing and directing 2nd unit photography, pick-ups and re-shoots for two different films on the same day(!).
They discuss the possibilities of the just announced S.H.I.E.L.D. television series and the disappointing news regarding a sequel to X-Men: First Class.
They discuss such movies as Cloud Atlas , Get the Gringo, Looper , The Apple Dumpling Gang and Ernest Goes to Camp!
All that, PLUS a “Wingnut of the Week” update on the fluoridation of Portland’s water supply and another “Lawsuit of the Week” involving actors and their former representation suing each other.
Maybe you’ll even get the chance to win the home edition of the Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
You never know.
It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour after all!
Wow. This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one for the vaults. There’s something for everyone, especially if you love good stories and insightful, hilarious and inspiring conversation.
Your friends in podcasting discuss the SAG-AFTRA merger, doing what you love, loving what you do, the cool history of the Pickfair studio, Phil’s atrocious handwriting, the conspiracy theory surrounding The Hunger Games, a lawsuit against an award-winning playwright and another lawsuit against the worst filmmaker of all time.
Finally, Dean and Phil tell the legend of Edmund Kean’s sword and debate how Laurence Olivier’s failure to pass that sword on either represents the way knowledge is lost or the way that knowledge is never forgotten!

Of course, we encourage you to listen to this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and visualize Dean and Phil and their visiting co-presenter, Jodie Orton (co-host of Siren 107.3 FM’s “American Dream Team” in the UK) as they sit around poolside atop the Eastern Columbia building, discussing the business of show …

All that plus TWO celebrity deaths, ONE Hollywood Lawsuit and FIVE intriguing projects that are in various stages of production, development or discussion.
It’s Memorial Day here in the U.S., a day for remembering those who died in service to their country. Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness spend a few minutes talking about the meaning of the day before putting the “your” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … They debate the merits, approach and achievements of David Lynch because a loyal listener wanted them to … They discuss the art and craft of casting directors because a loyal listener wanted them to … They examine the box office successes of three current comedy films and what that success says about the culture (and times) in which we live AND they take time to remember Gil Scott-Heron and Jeff Conaway, both of whom died this past week. All this from the Broadway gallery of artist Dean Haglund in downtown Los Angeles!
