Chillpak Hollywood Hour #589

We were going to say that after a one-week absence (during which they released a spectacular pre-recorded episode with a special guest), your friends in podcasting come out with guns blazing … And then, as they were getting set to record, ANOTHER mass shooting in the USA occurred. Dean and Phil address the event and get into a seriously fascinating conversation about rage and despair and about how people can obtain the tools necessary to explore these bedrock emotions without being taken by them. Then, in the return of “Live Events of the Week”, Tchaikovsky and a non-binary gender identifying performer are celebrated, and Dean discusses his “Down Under Bucket List”, including scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef (a list item he has checked off, thank you very much!). Romantic comedies and diversity both get discussed in the wake of Crazy Rich Asians‘ box office success (and surprisingly decent reviews) and the documentary profile Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda gets recommended. Finally, the Chillpak Morgue is opened for “Celebrity Deaths” where the lives, accomplishments and lasting impacts of a true American hero, a giant of international diplomacy, the Oscar-nominated actress who founded modern improv, the journalist who coined the phrase “champagne wishes and caviar dreams” and the Queen of Soul are all remembered. All that AND Phil finally learns the usage of modern-day pronouns!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #328

Please forgive the possibly rough audio mix this week … Your friends in podcasting recorded from their post-production office and they were hard at work all night and day completing day 19 of principal photography on The Lady Killers, the feature film Dean Haglund is executive producing and Phil Leirness is directing (from his own original screenplay).

On today’s show, Dean and Phil welcome two special guests, Art Director Rob Ulloa and his art deparment colleague, actress Stacie Rippy!

Join them for a rather hilarious conversation about what the art department does, about Disneyland, about acting, about Airstream trailers, about getting fired … It’s free-wheeling, occasionally insightful and always irreverent.

You know, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #275

A few weeks back, our friends at Combat Radio and YOUR friends in podcasting, went to the Disneyland resort to celebrate Dean Haglund’s birthday.

Now, you can join Dean, Phil Leirness, Ethan Dettenmaier, Lota Hadley, Jimmy Moreno, Ralph Panuzzo, C-3PO and Abraham Lincoln for an all-hands-on-deck assault on the Happiest Place on Earth!

Hear Phil and Dean waiting on the early morning streets of downtown Los Angeles, reminiscing over some of their earliest shows, tearing apart the latest Disney live-action release and getting spied on by none other than star of Midnight Run and Get Shorty, Dennis Farina!

Learn all about a miraculous beverage (The Combat Quencher) and the top-secret Club 33.

Hear Dean setting the record straight on lemmings, the Epcot Center, Walt Disney’s frozen head, the submarine ride, and the “bastion of cultural imperialism” he believes Disneyland to be.

It’s Dean Haglund’s birthday party and he’ll make vacationing families cry if he wants to!

This week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #199

It’s our first show on our all new, truly independent website and what an action-packed show it is!   Dean and Phil recount their experience sneak previewing The Truth Is Out There and UFO X-Fest.  They review three new films (Take Me Home Tonight, The Adjustment Bureau, Trust).   They take on the latest development and distribution news.   They tackle Charlie Sheen, Paul Haggis, The New Yorker, Twitter and Scientology.   They even take time to remember two Hollywood personages who died too late to be included in the Oscars’ “In Memorium” montage.   There’s also a tantalizing preview of next week’s show (which will feature a special guest!).   It’s been hell for us around here with websites failing, feedburners pointing in the wrong direction, shows becoming unavailable, so we really hope you enjoy the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
