Chillpak Hollywood Hour #304

Even after almost six years of bringing you a free weekly podcast, your friends in podcasting can still surprise. Witness this week’s opening, which is an absolute first. Witness Dean and Phil talking about LARPing (Live-Action Role-Playing) … LARPing!!!

Dean and Phil finally get around to their “genius” vs. “artist” discussion as it relates to filmmakers, painters, scientists and pioneers in all fields. They also take on an article claiming to unlock the conspiracy mindset and in the process take on the entire era of judgment in which we find ourselves.

Finally, they discuss several movies and several television shows as well as the death of NBC.

All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #186

Phil discusses his Thanksgiving birthday and talks about a voice-over gig. Dean describes his trips to Savannah, Georgia and Austin, Texas, plus his excursion to the Queen Mary in Long Beach to do improv with the Ghost Adventurers. After discussing the latest news about the SAG and AFTRA negotiations with the AMPTP, and the latest details in the murder of publicist Ronni Chasen, your friends in podcasting offer up their remembrances of Leslie Nielsen and Irvin Kershner. Then, they get down to the business of answering questions from you (yes, YOU) their listeners. Dean and Phil offer up telling and hilarious remembrances from their art/film school days. Dean discusses why he’s never pursued writing for comedy or sketch comedy television. Dean compares the acting processes of “X-Files” leading men David Duchovny and Robert Patrick. Then, Phil launches into a passionate exposition on the state of acting, with contributions from Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Ryan Gosling and Alejandro Gonzalez-Innaritu, ultimately positing the theory that “intimacy is the new punk”. He also offers a mea culpa to all fans of the “Twilight” films, “Dexter” and “The Walking Dead” all of which he has criticized in the past (and will criticize in the future) before taking such shows as “Psych” and “Castle” to task for their relentlessly numbing and “jokey” sensibilities. It’s a full, funny and furious installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #82

Dean is back from the Queen Mary where he performed his live comedy show for a convention of “ghost hunters” exploring the famous, floating, haunted hotel. He shares all the spooky goings on. Then things get REALLY scary, as Dean and Phil discuss breaking news involving Jay Leno, and Phil gives “equal time” to the argument AGAINST authorizing a Screen Actors Guild strike. Finally, Dean and Phil will finish what they started last week, previewing all the films to be released before the end of the year. Ghosts, labor strife and movies – What more could you want from a free hour of audio-only internet entertainment?

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #43

This week, Dean and Phil discuss Robert Downey Jr’s gravitas. Phil says “gravitas”. Over and over. Plus more trailer talk. Let’s call it “trailer trash”. Dean brings us up to date on his recent stint on the Queen Mary, plus Dean’s home address and Phil’s blood pressure may be revealed. Phil, who previously represented “a crisis in cinema”, gets his first positive hometown review…or does he? Don’t worry Phil, everybody hates on the hometown boy when they leave!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #41

Oscar buzz a plenty! Dean and Phil discuss their post-Oscar show (next Monday – don’t miss it!). Phil is slowly getting caught up on watching all the nominated movies, and Dean is getting ready to go back to the Queen Mary in Long Beach (it’s haunted – just like our studio was yesterday).

Engineer’s note : something was fishy and the audio isn’t quite up to par – Apologies.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #29

Hey, we’re back, we’re late , that’s how it goes here sometimes. Today, Dean tells tales of ghost hunting on the Queen Mary (spooky), gives us the 411 on his benefit performances, and Phil and Dean ponder whether Dean’s old TV crew, The Lone Gunmen, could be brought back. Enjoy!
