Chillpak Hollywood Hour #600

Seven important notes about this week’s show:

1) It’s our 600th episode!
2) It features a brand new version of the theme song appropriate to Dean’s relocation to the Motor City.
3) A horrible recording problem leads to a few choppy transitions at the start of the show and to an extremely bad electronic hum during the first 25 minutes or so of the show.
4) We have done the best we can to get rid of the hum and to at least make these first 25 minutes listenable, and you will want to bear with us as those minutes contain very personal conversation between Dean and Phil about things they love lost in the current SoCal fires, what they love that is seriously threatened by those fires, and about a great Canadian actor of Dean’s acquaintance who died this month. There is also a great story about baby diapers!
5) Several amazing movies get discussed – including the Sandra Bullock starring post-apocalyptic, action-horror vehicle Bird Box, the Coen Brothers rather amazing Western anthology feature The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Alfonso Cuaron’s seminal black-and-white memory piece Roma and Dean and Phil’s very own The Lady Killers, which Dean has finally seen!
6) The show is 72 minutes long, with about 45 minutes of that boasting clean audio!
7) We wish you all a “Malkovich Hug”!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #270

If you are a big fan of the “In Memoriam” section of awards shows, you are going to LOVE this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Much of the show is dedicated to remembering the show business legends that left us since your friends in podcasting last came to you from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles” …

Dean and Phil also follow up on last week’s incredible interview of true Renaissance man Leigh J. McCloskey by discussing another Renaissance man, Dean Haglund!

Of course, there’s much, much more to enjoy, including “The Irving G. Thalberg Drinking Game”, “The Succotash Bump”, the Bob Hope Airport, Torchwood, Norman Rockwell, The Pageant of the Masters, Phil’s desire to get knighted by the King of Norway, and the “Lawsuit of the Week”.

Finally, this week’s show includes big shout outs to Ethan Dettenmaier and “Combat Radio”, “Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis”, Pepper Jay, Yi Tian and Actors E Chat Show, Susan Larison Danz and “The Frontier Beyond Fear”, Marc Hershon and “Succotash”, Shaun Parker, David Sobolov and Agent Summer.

Oh, and if funny videos are something you enjoy, then by all means, check out this clip of Dean Haglund interviewing another sci-fi icon, a true “Star Wars” legend.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #269

It’s a big week for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Not only did your friends in podcasting team up with the crew from Combat Radio for an all-hands on deck assault on PopCon L.A., where they recorded audio and video interviews with scores of entertainment personalities that they will be editing into shows throughout the summer, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have also made two more of the archived shows available for listening enjoyment!

Because this week brings the return of the award-winning television series Breaking Bad, we are honoring the occasion by bringing back our two-part interview with that show’s creator, Vince Gilligan. You can listen to Part 1 here and Part 2 here .

Of course, there’s also a brand new show, featuring a conversation that is going to BLOW your minds! And this is it! The less revealed now, the better. Suffice it to say, once you’ve listened, you’ll know why we want you to visit the site for Dean and Phil’s new documentary. There is a bit of a “hiss” at the beginning of the interview, but it is quickly corrected. Oh, and you might want to check out these images for reference …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #268

Dean discusses east coast adventures past and future, a great new web series called Electric Bonno Land and the death of Leroy Neiman.

Phil discusses the Live Event of the Week, his crush on actress Teresa Ganzel, Combat Radio host Ethan Dettenmaier’s 40th birthday party and the filmmaker that might just be the most important working in U.S. independent film today.

Independence Day will be celebrated here in the U.S.A. this week and Dean and Phil mark the occasion with their ruminations over the subject of freedom and independence, as well as the United States’ current and future place in the world.

It’s “Happy Birthday, America” and your friends in podcasting are doing their part by making a documentary about ideas that liberate us. Please help them by visiting Hieroglyph of the Human Soul.
