After a follow-up question from a loyal listener about last week’s show, your friends in podcasting leap around the world, covering comedy, painting, poetry, movies, theatre, novels, puppetry and mental illness!
Full of insight, inspiration and irreverence, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
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 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.
Coming to you a little bit late, but with a bonus four minutes, this week’s show is action-packed and really puts the “your” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as Dean and Phil discuss … An email from listener Lejon Johnson about a Caravaggio discussion in episode 295 … An email from listener Matt Giles about the success of Veronica Mars on Kickstarter … A Facebook post from listener Greg Vincent about last week’s “genius” vs. “artist” discussion … A voicemail message of apology from listener and podcaster March Hershon … And finally, a request from listener Patricia Brady that we bring back classic episode #182 from the archives.
All that, plus your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s latest acting gig, his most recent art show, Spielberg’s newest collaboration with the dead Stanley Kubrick, what Jon Stewart’s going to do on his summer vacation, Phil’s advice for auditioning actors, what they’re reading, a Live Event of the Week and a Lawsuit of the Week.
Wow. Let’s get started, shall we?
From discussing a listener email about “negative thoughts” to answering questions from listeners regarding the documentary Paul Williams Still Alive and the Erick McCormack television series Perception, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are really putting the “your” into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour this week!
Your friends in podcasting also discuss the supposed death of big screen comedy, plus what they’re reading, two “Live Events of the Week”, and they offer up a special helping of their pal Ethan Dettenmaier (the producer and host of the most excellent Combat Radio).
Finally, Dean and Phil remember the show business luminaries who left us during the past week as well as the twelve souls whose lives were taken in a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado.
Dean discusses east coast adventures past and future, a great new web series called Electric Bonno Land and the death of Leroy Neiman.
Phil discusses the Live Event of the Week, his crush on actress Teresa Ganzel, Combat Radio host Ethan Dettenmaier’s 40th birthday party and the filmmaker that might just be the most important working in U.S. independent film today.
Independence Day will be celebrated here in the U.S.A. this week and Dean and Phil mark the occasion with their ruminations over the subject of freedom and independence, as well as the United States’ current and future place in the world.
It’s “Happy Birthday, America” and your friends in podcasting are doing their part by making a documentary about ideas that liberate us. Please help them by visiting Hieroglyph of the Human Soul.
This week’s show is all about embracing the unknown, and as such, it probably started over on Combat Radio (on Friday 18 May), where YOUR friends in podcasting interviewed noted physicist (and regular contributor to Ancient Aliens), Mike Dennin about the frontiers of science. You can listen to that show HERE.
Back on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness carry on with the theme, discussing the unknown in a variety of different arenas …
The mystery (involving the dog star Sirius, the Kinights Templar, Mary Magdalene and a cheeky 13th century Imp) of the Lincoln Cathedral …
What Barry Diller’s Aereo portends for the future (or lack thereof) of television …
The foreign control of U.S. media …
The power of social networking …
The inner workings of Rupert Murdoch’s international empire …
And SO MUCH more, including a “Lawsuit of the Week” that involves a group finally embracing the unknown and “Celebrity Deaths”.
Enjoy all the great tasted you’ve come to expect for a hearty and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
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!
Wow. This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one for the vaults. There’s something for everyone, especially if you love good stories and insightful, hilarious and inspiring conversation.
Your friends in podcasting discuss the SAG-AFTRA merger, doing what you love, loving what you do, the cool history of the Pickfair studio, Phil’s atrocious handwriting, the conspiracy theory surrounding The Hunger Games, a lawsuit against an award-winning playwright and another lawsuit against the worst filmmaker of all time.
Finally, Dean and Phil tell the legend of Edmund Kean’s sword and debate how Laurence Olivier’s failure to pass that sword on either represents the way knowledge is lost or the way that knowledge is never forgotten!
