Chillpak Hollywood Hour #552

This week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is a lot of fun, full of fascinating discussion and tons of laughs … It starts with Dean and Phil discussing ballet and ice skating! When has THAT happened on this show?! Phil weighs in on two live events AND the David Lynch-ian qualities of Glendale, California (where much of “Twin Peaks: The Return” was filmed). Then, thank heavens, there’s only one “celebrity death” to discuss and it’s an interesting one you probably don’t know about! That leads into a discussion of whether there really have been more “celebrity deaths” this year and last than ever before and whether the music industry has been especially hard hit. There’s actually a study being conducted to find those answers!

In show business news, it is likely that the legendary studio 20th Century Fox will no longer exist as of Wednesday, becoming subsumed by the ever growing Disney powerhouse. What does that mean for the future of the industry? Dean and Phil will wrestle with that question. Of course, there is also the latest in “Toxic Masculinity”. This week’s headliners include Louis CK, Dustin Hoffman, John Oliver and Bryan Singer. From show biz figures behaving badly to movies receiving accolades, Dean and Phil will dig into the movies making lots of Top Ten Lists, before reviewing a couple films that may or may not be making those lists. All that, PLUS …

In May of 2018, your friends in podcasting celebrate 11 years of bringing you free weekly entertainment.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #539

This week, your friends in podcasting bring you a truly epic 70 minute installment that opens with Phil holding court about spoiler alerts, time travel, dream logic and more as he discusses both “The Prisoner” on its 50th Anniversary and “Twin Peaks: The Return” in the wake of its brilliant finale. He even explains “what happened to Audrey!” Then Dean joins Phil to update us on the Sydney Hilarium, his pop-up comedy club, and to celebrate the lives of a former child star, the creator of McGruff the Crime Dog, one-half of Steely Dan, and the “gentle giant” of country music. After that, they follow up on their previous discussion about monuments and statues thanks to an email from a listener like you (well, maybe not EXACTLY like you, unless you created the normal theme song for the show). Then, a fascinating, possible “Lawsuit of the Week” surrounding a reboot of the 1980′s television series “Amazing Stories” comes our way courtesy of frequent contributor Stephen Fowler. Finally, Dean and Phil roll up their sleeves and dig into more than a dozen movies, including comedies from the 1930′s, sci-fi films from the 1960′s and five 2017 releases.

Great TV, many genres of films, musical surprises, and several big laughs. In other words, YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #534

If what we read is true, your friends in podcasting are on a roll, and the quality conversation continues this week as Dean and Phil convene via Skype to share news of Dean’s new “pop-up” comedy club and upcoming displays of his art work, and to dissect two strange conversations Phil witnessed this past week (one in which he was a perplexed participant). A quite touching email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) is read, and that leads into a rather fascinating discussion about Christopher Nolan’s latest opus, Dunkirk, a new directorial effort from the writer of both Hell or High Water and Sicario (two of the best movies of this decade), Wind River. Many other movies will get discussed, including one starring the late Martin Landau and the classic by François Truffaut, The 400 Blows. This begins what will be an ongoing analysis of the list of the 50 films everyone should see before they are 14 years of age!

A week after remembering a character actor and a legendary voice performer in “Celebrity Deaths”, your friends in podcasting celebrate the lives (and mourn the deaths of) a Tony-Winning and Oscar-nominated playwright-actor, a sketch comic turned voice performer, a cast member of several Harry Potter movies, and an award-winning theatre actress. All that, PLUS your usual weekly dose of insight, irreverence and inspiration on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Spread the word!
