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.
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?
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!
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.
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!
