Chillpak Hollywood Hour #391

Fresh off last week’s well-received episode, your friends in podcasting pick up where they left off with another action-packed hour …

They get the ball rolling with more thoughts on feminism before revealing why Dean Haglund figures prominently on LAIST.com’s list of the top 22 things to do in Los Angeles on a weekend and how Dean is now a “published” artist! Then, several “Live Events of the Week” are discussed, one including Science Fiction, one boasting a performance by the peerless Angela Lin and one boasting a performance by a bona fide 16 year-old prodigy.

Soon, Chris Rock’s relevance is celebrated, Chow Yun-Fat’s coolness is reported and the shifting platform distribution windows of movies are questioned.

Plus, there’s more on Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) plus letters about Radio Free Albemuth, what movies Dean and Phil find scary, what Dean and Phil are reading and how YOU can get your very own Chillpak Hollywood Hour t-shirt.

Wow? All that in ONE hour? Of course. When that hour is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
