Chillpak Hollywood Hour #570

Delayed by 36 hours so that Phil could work on materials pertaining to the forthcoming release of The Lady Killers and so Dean could get some chiropractic work done pertaining to his recovery from knee surgery, this week’s episode begins with updates on both these tales before your friends in podcasting launch into “Celebrity Deaths”, where they remember a former first lady of the USA, the star of a classic Kubrick film, a multiple-Oscar-winning filmmaker, a comedy impresario, a comedian and magician turned sitcom star and a talk radio pioneer. This week’s show features the return of “What We’re Reading” wherein Dean and Phil discuss how to maintain better focus at the contemporary art genre known as “minimal fantasy”. The movies Blade Runner 2049 and Faces Places get discussed in greater detail than ever before on the show and the “clearinghouse” approach to television embodied by the likes of Netflix and Hulu versus the “curated” approach taken by HBO and Showtime gets analyzed. A handful of shows get discussed in the process. All in all, this belated episode is choc-full-o-goodness and because it’s later than we like, it comes with a bonus 6 minutes!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #320

Happy Canada Day!

Phil Leirness is back with health advice for the young people and with corrections for Dean Haglund after listening to last week’s show …

Nothing less than an action-packed thrill ride, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour features your friends in podcasting discussing more than a dozen movies, the Supreme Court’s recent rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8, the Jim Carrey Kick-Ass 2 controversy, Paula Deen’s racism vs. Alec Baldwin’s homophobia, and fairy tales!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #218

This week’s installment starts out like a Michael Bay film (CARMAGEDDON!) and quickly becomes a legal thriller thanks to a VERY intriguing adventure recounted by Phil. Dean tells of his weekend travels (both recent past and near future) and explains to Phil the difference between Veterans and veterinarians before he and Phil share once again the strange, sad tale of the Chillpak, this show’s former sponsor …

Then, it’s all about the movies as your friends in podcasting count down the Top 14 summer box office hits, analyzing their quality and what their success or failure says about the industry (and the culture at large).

You know it’s a strange, wonderful show when PHIL cites “Robot Chicken” AND compares the DC and Marvel universes!

And for those of you in Southern California, don’t miss the cinematic event of the year! Okay, of the week … It the Los Angeles Premiere of THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE! There’s two nights to choose from: Wednesday and Thursday of THIS week. Full event details and tickets are available: HERE.
