Chillpak Hollywood #423

Guest Hosts Karen Forman and Lily Holleman return to discuss stand-up comedy, women directors, the town of Eureka, men obsessed with Van Morrison, the end of “Game of Thrones”, the brilliance of “Veep” the artistry of the Lifetime movie “A Deadly Adoption”, the fun of “Scandal”, and much more …

And there’s a surprise appearance from your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, who checks in (from the Island of Yap?!) to remember Jack Rollins, Ron Moody, Christopher Lee and his own colleague, the great Neil Kinsella.

Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #307

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 both talk about their last movie together (The Truth Is Out There) and their upcoming movie (The Lady Killers).

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.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #285

Is it safe to say that there’s something for everyone on this week’s show? Consider …

Your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s trip to Fargo for ValleyCon and the Fargo Fantastic Film Festival as well as Phil’s producing and directing 2nd unit photography, pick-ups and re-shoots for two different films on the same day(!).

They discuss the forthcoming Million Muppet March, their choices of Halloween costumes, the latest on Allan Piper’s film Married and Counting and Paul Bunnell’s film The Ghastly Love of Johnny X.

They discuss the possibilities of the just announced S.H.I.E.L.D. television series and the disappointing news regarding a sequel to X-Men: First Class.

They discuss such movies as Cloud Atlas , Get the Gringo, Looper , The Apple Dumpling Gang and Ernest Goes to Camp!

All that, PLUS a “Wingnut of the Week” update on the fluoridation of Portland’s water supply and another “Lawsuit of the Week” involving actors and their former representation suing each other.

Maybe you’ll even get the chance to win the home edition of the Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

You never know.

It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour after all!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #266

Your friends in podcasting have been busy! From marathons to moviemaking, from fine art to live events, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness really mix it up …

They launched a brand new documentary project about an artist and philosopher and they hope you will check it out HERE.

Phil co-hosted an installment of the top notch “Combat Radio” show, and he brought along the amazing Tucker Smallwood as a guest. You can enjoy that show right HERE.

Dean and Phil’s friend, filmmaker Jonathan Browning, recently completed another of his award-winning shorts, this one starring the legendary Paul Dooley. Give it (and all of Jonathan’s shorts) a viewing right HERE.

Finally, loyal listener to this show, Mattie Giles, has a film review website you might enjoy. Check that out right HERE.

Of course, Dean and Phil really hope you will enjoy this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, which covers such diverse topics as the historic L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz, the plays of Anton Checkhov, the films of the 1930′s, the critical debate over Prometheus, the under-appreciation of MIB3, some new shows on HBO, Dean’s shocking attitude towards prostitution, and why we really all should just get along.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #261

How else would Year Six of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begin, but with an on-air production meeting? 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.

Dean discusses his road trip adventures in art, from studying Van Gogh in Philadelphia, to painting portraits in the West Hills of Texas, as well as the status of his Kickstarter campaign to create the graphic novel “Shock and Awesome”.

Phil discusses his travels throughout the UK, including screenings at Goldsmiths College, the University of Lincoln and the Birmingham UFO Group, attending the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival, co-presenting Alex Lewczuk’s top-notch Siren FM “Midweek Drive” shows, investigating the mystery of the Lincoln Cathedral, interviewing fascinating figures throughout the UK on topics ranging from bees to airport security scans, from Mary Magdalene to utopian societies.

Oh, and what’s the deal with all the strange cats in Brighton?!

All that, plus the books Dean and Phil are reading and plenty of big laughs. How could there not be big laughs? After all, your friends in podcasting are jet lagged!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #89

Philip Newby was an incredibly gifted actor-writer-performer, and the first guest Dean and Phil ever welcomed to Chillpak Hollywood Hour (27 August 2007, episode #17, back when we were still “From the Heart of Hollywood”). Philip killed himself this past week. Phil and Dean share memories of their friend and try to put this deeply felt loss into some sort of perspective.

Always grateful for the feedback from their listeners, Dean and Phil share some thoughts about their film Spectres sent to them by loyal listener Erynn and answer a couple of filmmaking-related questions and The Sicilian. Finally, Dean and Phil go over the Academy Award nominations with a fine-tooth comb.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #28

Dean, Phil, and their special guest Lily Holleman discuss the booming film industry in the other LA (Shreveport, LA, to be precise). More news on the continuing writers’ strike, plus more good reviews for Phil’s new film “Karl Rove, I Love You”.
