What do Will Smith, Danny De Vito and Madonna have in common? They were all mentioned TWICE in this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
Dean talks about Wondercon. Phil talks about Lifetime movies, spending Easter working on a short film about the last man on Earth to believe in God, and shooting in Chinatown.
Dean gets asked about the art work he’s creating for his Kickstarter backers and for his graphic novel. Phil gets taken to task (rightly so) about misspelling a listener’s name.
Dean and Phil discuss Stanley Kubrick, The Shining, Room 237 and a question from listener Shaun Parker about whether “conspiracy theories” are an art form.
A music legend, a beloved character actor and 300 German circus fleas are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”.
Sherlock Holmes stars in the “Lawsuit of the Week”.
Stop reading and enjoy the show. Now. And tell a friend.
Dean’s heading out of town to “save” a bad horror film by turning it into a comedy. That fact leads to a discussion about … Newfoundland?
Phil’s editing a film and that leads to a discussion of … The overture to Star Trek: The Motion Picture?
This week’s episode goes in many unexpected directions, from discussions of two other podcasts (Marc Hershon’s “Succotash” and David Pickering’s “Getting Better Acquainted) to a play about hoarding, from a remembrance of Bonnie Franklin to Dean and Phil’s idea for a very interesting awards show.
All that, plus, Dean and Phil really put the “your” into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, wishing one loyal listener a happy birthday, answering one question from a listener about Argo and reading another listener’s email about the SyFy channel.
It’s the first episode of 2013 and since it’s early January, where would your friends in podcasting be but poolside atop downtown Los Angeles?!

From record setting box office by a film from France, to precedent-setting success by a VOD release, from the most popular filming locations in L.A. to the return of 1980′s action heroes, from the smash hit album “21″ by Adele, to the death of one of the most popular singers of the 1950′s, this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour has all the news, views and reviews you’ve come to expect and enjoy.

Today’s show is one of those special episodes where your friends in podcasting get on a roll and throw out the structure in favor of an organic, enlivening exchange that still manages to touch on such topics as The PEACE Fund (Protecting, Educating and Aiding Children Everywhere), the “Looper effect”, General David Petraeus and sex scandals, the most unfortunate entertainment headline in recent memory, news from HBO’S “The Newsroom”, the Daniel Craig “Bond” films, and the Sean Connery “Bond” films.
There is an “Explanation of the Week” involving Mitt Romney and there is a lengthy debate over 007′s latest big-screen adventure.

Of course, having been away from the Rational Exuberance offices (inside an “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”) for the past two weeks, your friends in podcasting have many logistics to discuss, including their end of the Mayan Calendar show and the production of not one, but TWO sequels to their documentary The Truth Is Out There.
