The 7th of ten planned “Top Ten” shows your friends in podcasting are doing to commemorate Year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one of their most personal and unusual shows of the year … Back when they were shooting their epic documentary The Truth Is Out There, someone asked Phil whether he and Dean do the podcast to promote their movies, or whether they make movies to promote their podcast. Phil found amusing the assumption that promotion MUST be a part of what he and Dean were doing and yet found the question an interesting one. Almost six years since the World Premiere of that film, which is truly equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, it is apparent that what motivates them to keep making films is the same thing that motivates them to keep doing this show: A desire to engage in conversation. Join them this week, as they take a look back at “TRUTH” and count down the top ten things that strike them now when watching their prescient, disturbing, moving and truly funny documentary. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you will find the discussion about it inspiring, insightful, irreverent. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!
We apologize for the delay in getting this to you. Your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, is really ill. Hence the delay. Nevertheless, it’s a great show, full of emails from listeners like you (yes, YOU!).
Enjoy, as Dean Haglund and Phil discuss the problems facing the NFL, what consittues “tone” in movies, the influence of David Lynch on the past decades of independent cinema, the return of “Twin Peaks”, the life and death of Dr. Stanley Monteith, and the new films The Boxtrolls, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, The Equalizer and The Skeleton Twins.
Filmmaker and podcast host Kevin Smith was removed from an airline flight this weekend, allegedly for being “too fat”. Obesity and the industrialization of food are foremost on Dean and Phil’s minds, and on the minds of such individuals as Dr. Stanley Monteith and Alex Jones, individuals that have been interviewed for THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE, individuals who believe that the New World Order is here and that its agenda involves a massive reduction in the human population. Meanwhile, it’s President’s Day here in the U.S., so Dean and Phil discuss some of their favorite stories relating to their favorite presidents. Finally, Phil dusts off his soapbox and unleashes a beauty of an oratory on subjects ranging from the Jungian “shadow” archetype to our intuitive understanding of the world and the need for biological diversity. The real question is What DON’T Dean and Phil talk about on this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?
