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?
It’s an all-star cast on this week’s show, with Dean and Phil discussing the deaths of Natasha Richardson and of Bob Yari’s distribution company. Dean and Phil then discuss the music of gorgeous and talented actresses Shawnee Smith and Missi Pyle, the box office appeal (or lack thereof) of Clive Owen, and the “leading lady” status of Julia Roberts, comparing her career longevity to that of Faye Dunaway. Finally, Dean and Phil discuss a disastrous horror remake, the need for “camp” in film and Phil badmouths two time Oscar-winning (and dead) director Robert Wise. It may sound morbid … Trust us, it’s almost always funny.
Phil spent much time this past week with his new friends from the Sacred Fools Theatre celebrating the life of their beloved friend Philip Newby. He gives a big shout out to them before asking Dean about his friend, the great director Kim Manners, who died this past week. Dean and Phil then segue from celebrating the creativity of their friends to celebrating the year in film of 2008. It’s Top Ten list time! So get your pens and paper ready, everybody, because although there won’t be a quiz, you’ll be guaranteed to hear of films that will pique your insatiable curiosity. We love your insatiable curiosity. Have we ever told you that before?
