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?!
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!
Princess Diana, political divisiveness, Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, Arsenic and Old Lace, Dr. Jack Daniels, Richard Burton’s Hamlet, the auteur theory, the return of Margaret, Miranda July, Woody Allen, People Like Us, Pariah,Veep, the Hatfields AND the McCoys, letters from listeners, rites, rituals and celebrity deaths … All that and much more, this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Also, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, need your help. They have launched a brand new documentary project about an artist and philosopher and they hope you will check it out HERE.
Energized and raring to go, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are all over the map and spanning the ages in this week’s installment, an episode that can best be summed up by two words: TIME TRAVEL.
You’ll see what we mean as Dean and Phil discuss Old Town Sacramento, Damanhur, Ray Bradbury, the Los Angeles Conservancy, Paper Moon, Boris Karloff, an elementary school graduation, Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, Prometheus and MORE!
Oh, and if you haven’t heard enough of your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, or if you just want to get turned onto another really cool podcast, we hope you’ll check out Getting Better Acquainted hosted by David Pickering. Phil was the guest on episode 60.
Finally, if you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 23, we strongly encourage you to go see David Dean Bottrell Makes Love.
Dean and Phil’s last “live” show for a few weeks is full of all the rich, delicious, nourishing podcasty goodness you’ve come to expect from YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Your friends in podcasting discuss their Sacramento adventures, the creators of Superman, a present-day comic book master, absurdist theatre, Samuel Beckett, Bully, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, the Occupy movement, the mysterious life of Frances Farmer, the brilliant writing of David McCullough, the best stage actor in Los Angeles, and Torchwood.
All that plus more on The Hunger Games, more on “pronoia”, a celebrity death and a lawsuit involving the paranormal …
And don’t worry, even though they are hitting the road, Dean and Phil have two special shows planned during their absence!
This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with discussions inspired by emails from listeners, including such topics as Titanic, the behavior of James Cameron (and directors and actors in general), and the fact that “pronoia” (NOT “paranoia”) might destroy ‘ya.
Your friends in podcasting spend part of the show in the state capital of California, preparing to appear on the morning television news program “Good Day Sacramento” (you can view a clip of their appearance right here). While waiting in a secret location, they riff on the election challenge faced by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the Family Research Council’s apparent dislike of vegetables, the staggering box office record of The Lion King stage musical and what it might mean for the future of performers’ unions.
All that, plus The Live Event of the Week and Dean and Phil weigh in on The Cabin in the Woods, The Hunger Games and a film about a machete-wielding clown during the Spanish Civil War.
And we hope you’ll take time to view the fantastic video Dean put together in support of the graphic novel he’s making.
It’s the day after Christmas and you ALL have at least one more gift to unwrap: This installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
We’re not going to spoil any of the surprise. We’ll simply say that we may have saved our loveliest, most heartfelt episode til last.
And if you haven’t already, we hope you’ll take the time to read our blog, wherein we thank many of the people who made the year so special.
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will be back on Monday 2 January 2012 and your friends in podcasting wish you all a New Year full of peace, action and adventure!
It’s Memorial Day here in the U.S., a day for remembering those who died in service to their country. Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness spend a few minutes talking about the meaning of the day before putting the “your” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … They debate the merits, approach and achievements of David Lynch because a loyal listener wanted them to … They discuss the art and craft of casting directors because a loyal listener wanted them to … They examine the box office successes of three current comedy films and what that success says about the culture (and times) in which we live AND they take time to remember Gil Scott-Heron and Jeff Conaway, both of whom died this past week. All this from the Broadway gallery of artist Dean Haglund in downtown Los Angeles!
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are in London, recovering from the thrilling world premiere of their documentary The Truth Is Out There. So, how are they able to bring you a brand new episode from Los Angeles? It’s pre-recorded. That’s how! It’s also an awesome episode featuring a super guest – John Champion, creator and co-host of DVD Geeks!
