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!
Because Dean Haglund is packing up for Galaxy Fest in Colorado Springs, Colorado (to perform comedy and show The Truth Is Out There), and Phil Leirness is hitting the road for the 2012 International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona (where the TRUTH is also screening), this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is coming to you a few hours later than we like.
It is, however, one of our very best shows!
That it’s President’s Day in the U.S. leads to a discussion of presidential UFO lore, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Merv Griffin. The special friendship between The UK’s “The Midweek Drive” and YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, leads to a discussion of Phil’s pajamas and his forthcoming tour of the UK. The book The Wayfinders leads to a discussion of cultural relativism, the biosphere, the ethnosphere, the living history of Los Angeles, and Dreamtime and The Dream Factory. An Albert Einstein quote leads to a discussion of the intuitive mind and the rational mind and the way we might move beyond divisiveness in an effort to address the common challenges facing us all. The Chillpak Hollywood Live Event of the Week leads to a discussion of Phil’s admiration for an actress he had never before seen, the best director working in theatre today, and the way storytellers strengths in one medium can serve as weakness in another.
All that, plus TWO Chillpak Hollywood Lawsuits of the Week (the one involving Chris Pine, “Captain Kirk” from JJ Abrams’ re-booth of Star Trek is a paticular hoot.
Your friends in podcasting definitely brought their “A” game. We hope you will enjoy it enough to share it with others …
