YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour turns 500 episodes old this week and your friends in podcasting celebrate this august milestone with one of their most bizarre shows ever, and it’s truly an episode where everyone is dying to get in … You see, after meeting up at a certain historic building in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles to discuss such topics as a recent Guillermo del Toro exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Dean’s art work AND Dean’s long-awaited graphic novel, Dean and Phil go on a field trip to Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, one of the most unusual cemeteries in all the world! Never mind their usual segment “Celebrity Deaths”, in this episode your friends in podcasting celebrate death itself! Sound odd enough for you?
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!
Phil gets his geek on, discussing such Comic-Con panels as The Expendables, Cowboys and Aliens, The Other Guys, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and Drive Angry (Shot in 3D).
Dean answers questions about that large scar on his forehead, about the seminars the FBI conducts with screenwriters, and about why he says, “Huzzah!”
Dean and Phil analyze and debate why cable television has Emmy Award advantages over network television, whether The Secret Supper by Javier Sierra is a good book, and whether the paintings of Da Vinci qualify as art or as propaganda. Taking on Da Vinci? Who, but your friends in podcasting would dare do that?!!
Finally, several big movies are discussed: SALT, Inception, Cyrus, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Restrepo.
It’s your Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
