Chillpak Hollywood Hour #593

Dean tells stories about the Sydney Opera House. Phil tells stories about an amazing interview he did for his “other” podcast and tells an hilarious story about his upcoming bachelor party. Dean and Phil then share “What We’re Reading” and compare notes on the healing nature of live classical music in the “Live Event of the Week”. A little good news about HBO’s terrific “Barry” is shared in discussion of the Emmy Awards and Dean sings the praises of the Canadian adventure series “Frontier”. Then, your friends in podcasting tackle a wide range of cinematic efforts, from Elia Kazan’s classic film noir Panic in the Streets to the Jack Lemmon vehicle The Days of Wine and Roses, from John Carpenter’s masterful (and initially rejected) The Thing to a current release that has met with praise and promising box office, even though it’s all sorts of awful. Finally a legendary and groundbreaking dancer is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Oh, yeah, and if that wasn’t enough, no actor, editor or filmmaker will want to miss the discussion inspired by an email from a loyal listener …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #497

Dean is travelling, so he and Phil won’t be able to celebrate the lives of a couple amazing women who died this past week until they get together in L.A. to record several shows this week. In the meantime, they pre-recorded this, their third “Top Ten” show of the ten they have planned to commemorate year ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. This week, in anticipation of La La Land opening, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All-Time Favorite Movie Musicals! This episode has it all: Singing, dancing, comedy, romance AND the firestorm of a great debate as Dean and Phil get into a heated, and hilarious, argument over the merits of Baz Luhrman and his post-”Moulin Rouge” career. It’s 80 minutes of podcasty goodness featuring some of the greatest talents to grace the silver screen!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #313

Dean Haglund drove to Winnipeg last week to be with his father, who was getting out of the hospital, so we certainly want to send all our best wishes to both these fine gentlemen.

Because Dean had no way of knowing how long we will be away from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”, he made sure to record a couple very special podcasts before he left.

Year 7 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with one of these episodes.

Yi Tian is an actress and model who hosts both the Actors E Chat Show and Hello! Hollywood, which airs on 35 networks in China.

A native of Beijing, Yi earned a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas and was supposed to become a software engineer upon her graduation. As fate would have it, however, she was discovered by a talent agent and was convinced to take up acting. She is currently filming the science fiction thriller Patriot Act and she will soon be playing the first character introduced in Dean and Phil’s dark comedy The Lady Killers, a character responsible for establishing the film’s constantly surprising tone.

Back in November of 2011, Yi actually interviewed your friends in podcasting for the web-based chat show Actors E. You can check out that episode here. This week, the tables are finally turned!

Given Yi Tian’s following in China, I think it’s safe to say that not since Wham! toured that country in the mid-1980′s have two more goofy white guys taken China by storm the way Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #269

It’s a big week for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Not only did your friends in podcasting team up with the crew from Combat Radio for an all-hands on deck assault on PopCon L.A., where they recorded audio and video interviews with scores of entertainment personalities that they will be editing into shows throughout the summer, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have also made two more of the archived shows available for listening enjoyment!

Because this week brings the return of the award-winning television series Breaking Bad, we are honoring the occasion by bringing back our two-part interview with that show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. You can listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 here .

Of course, there’s also a brand new show, featuring a conversation that is going to BLOW your minds! And this is it! The less revealed now, the better. Suffice it to say, once you’ve listened, you’ll know why we want you to visit the site for Dean and Phil’s new documentary. There is a bit of a “hiss” at the beginning of the interview, but it is quickly corrected. Oh, and you might want to check out these images for reference …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #246

It’s an annual Chillpak Hollywood Hour event as your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, offer up their respective top ten lists of the best films of the previous year.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #244

Live from the mean streets of Los Angeles, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour finds your friends in podcasting on the open road, braving Martin Luther King Day traffic on their way back from Los Angeles International Airport. Dean and Phil discuss the live shows they’ve seen, the movies they’ve watched, the books they’re reading. They weigh in on the Golden Globes, the Directors Guild nominations, the SAG-Aftra merger agreement, the latest development news, UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s ludicrous call to action for his country’s movie industry. Plus, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness reveal the lawsuit they may have to file. And because it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean and Phil tackle comments and questions from such loyal listeners as John Girodo, Josh Glasgow, Mark Bennett and The Sicilian.

Buckle up.
