Chillpak Hollywood Hour #330

After spending 20 hours a day for more than a month working on their new feature film The Lady Killers (which needs YOUR help!), Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are back to co-hosting the type of show long-time listeners have come to expect … Namely, a free-wheeling, often insightful, occasionally inspirational and frequently irreverent discussion about anything going on in the world that has their attention and how that topic is depicted in the media …

This week’s topics include the fate of the Chillpak, the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, the casting of James Spader in “Avengers 2″, the casting of Peter Capaldi as Dr. Who, the civil war in Syria, the disastrous summer of 2013 for movies, crowd-sourcing and much, much more …

Here’s a thought: Don’t just enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour – Share it with friends!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #314

The show begins with selections from a rather hilarious Skype conversation between Phil Leirness and March Hershon of Succotash.

Following the theme song, Dean Haglund is back, and tells of his whirlwind, speeding-ticket-filled road trip to Winnipeg and back.

Violence prevention is very much on the mind of Phil, as he participated in a gang violence “interruption” on Saturday night. He talks about that and the short film Flawless.

Mostly, though, movies are what your friends in podcasting really want to talk about, from the role of critics, to the resurrection of Harrison Ford, to the post-apocalypse bandwagon, to the lack of roles for women, to the work of Stanley Kubrick, to the latest installment of Star Trek.

All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …

So, grab the sunscreen and join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness as they discuss fine art, popular music, television, movies and celebrity deaths!

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.

Happy 2013, everybody! It promises to be our best year yet!

The month just ended (September 2012) saw the most downloads of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour since the show went independent in January of 2011 and your friends in podcasting celebrate this news with perhaps the most hilarious opening they’ve ever had!

Even when the irreverence ends, the jokes and witty bon mots continue in full effect as Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness take on (or revisit) such topics as Catholic weddings, fluoridation of water, Monsanto’s House of the Future, educational institutions, corporate culture, government bureaucracies, a murder mystery in Phil’s neighborhood of Los Feliz, celebrity deaths, emails from listeners and a wide range of films dealing with mental health issues.

And remember, The Truth Is Out There is now out there on BLU-RAY!
