Chillpak Hollywood Hour #161

Dean flew back from Austin, Texas (on United), and Phil flew back from New York City (on JetBlue) just to bring you this evening’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. They begin the show by regaling you with tales of airline awfulness, before holding court on the sights, sounds and tastes of their weekend adventures. Such artists as Benini, Judy Chicago and Rene Magritte get discussed and such locales as Highline Park, the Brooklyn Esplanade and the West Hills of Texas get described. Global issues are tackled as well, from the World Cup to a remarkable discovery in Afghanistan, from the BP oil spill to urban renewal. Your friends in podcasting still discuss show business, of course, and this week they tackle The Hollywood Reporter, the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Steven Seagal, remakes from the 80’s and ill-advised sequels and remakes on the horizon. It’s a pretty darn hilarious hour. How could it not be when Dean and Phil are reunited and it feels so good?!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #157

It’s the first episode of Season 4 and your friends in podcasting are finally back in Los Angeles bringing you a brand new hour of heated conversation. Phil has been completely immersed in logging selects from the footage Dean and he shot over the past ten months for their documentary The Truth Is Out There, and you hear what being immersed in the darkness of certain points of view can do to a person as his tries to explain something he’s realized about conspiracy theorists … A secret he shares on the show. Adventures at an archery range, at the Getty Villa, and at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory are also discussed, as is the recent furor over a Newsweek blogger declaring Sean Hayes “too gay to play straight” as well as the loss of Phil’s favorite NYC restaurant. All that, plus a screenwriting question from a loyal listener, advice on going into designer chain coffee stores locked and loaded and what Dean and Phil are reading … It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #149

This week’s show begins with a quote from Albert Einstein and ends with a quote from playwright Martin McDonagh. In between, Dean and Phil wade around in the deep end of the pool, discussing such topics as the weight of the human soul, the mysterious lights that recently appeared (for eight nights in a row) over Lake Erie, the Spiral that opened in the skies of Norway in November, how artists might be responsible for the events of 9/11, why your friends in podcasting have a hard time believing all this “freedom is dead” talk they’ve been hearing, and why Phil has heard just about enough religion-bashing. Plus Phil reports on his trip to the Big Apple, including the three plays he saw and the two meetings he had with loyal Chillpak Hollywood Hour listeners.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #133

Phil Leirness is back from the east coast, and he brings with him a suitcase full of stories, ranging from the White House State Dinner crashers to Japanese “herbivores” to his own debut on the Broadway stage! Plus, he plugs the next production from Rational Exuberance and an interview he will be doing on Blog Talk Radio’s Good Karma Stories hosted by Ed Moy.

Dean Haglund is taking off for the east coast, for a starring role in a sci-fi horror adventure Atlantis Down. He previews that experience and discusses how his dance training has come in handy both as an actor and as a performer in action sequences.

Finally, ’tis the season for giving, so Dean and Phil leave you with a musical gift: A short snippet of the theme song from their forthcoming documentary The Truth Is Out There, written and performed by The B-Film Extras.
