Chillpak Hollywood Hour #510

On this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, remembrance of Al Jarreau leads to a discussion of artistic integrity vs. commercial success, and a discussion of the television “bubble” leads to a discussion of what the proliferation of quality episodic entertainment means for movies. In between, Dean and Phil will discuss such films as Cemetery of Splendour, Inferno, Passengers and Split as well as forthcoming remakes and adaptations of such classics as Network, Out of Africa, Bullitt, Every Which Way But Loose, as well as the impressive new career arc Keanu Reeves is carving out for himself.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #462

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!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #262

This week’s show is all about embracing the unknown, and as such, it probably started over on Combat Radio (on Friday 18 May), where YOUR friends in podcasting interviewed noted physicist (and regular contributor to Ancient Aliens), Mike Dennin about the frontiers of science. You can listen to that show HERE.

Back on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness carry on with the theme, discussing the unknown in a variety of different arenas …

The mystery (involving the dog star Sirius, the Kinights Templar, Mary Magdalene and a cheeky 13th century Imp) of the Lincoln Cathedral …

What Barry Diller’s Aereo portends for the future (or lack thereof) of television …

The foreign control of U.S. media …

The power of social networking …

The inner workings of Rupert Murdoch’s international empire …

And SO MUCH more, including a “Lawsuit of the Week” that involves a group finally embracing the unknown and “Celebrity Deaths”.

Enjoy all the great tasted you’ve come to expect for a hearty and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
