Chillpak Hollywood Hour #599

Now that Dean once again lives in the USA, he and Phil will be recording YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour on Monday mornings! This week, they compare notes on the Steve Martin-Martin Short touring stage show, and share thoughts about the recent spate of re-booted television series of yesteryear and those reboots recently announced. The lives of a “swamp rock” legend, a WW II “Monuments Man”, the inventor of green bean casserole, the greatest trumpeter of his generation, and Phil’s all-time favorite baseball player will be remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Then, grab the popcorn because your friends in podcasting have a bunch of disparate cinematic offerings to discuss, from horror classics like Nosferatu and The Wolf Man to such contemporary releases as Bohemian Rhapsody, Boy Erased, A Private War, and Orson Welles’ The Other Side of the Wind.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #577

Your friends in podcasting had planned this week’s podcast to be part 1 of a special 2-part Top Ten show and then … real life cropped up! So, instead, in what proves to be a personal and heartfelt show, Dean and Phil discuss the “Roseanne” controversy, and Phil’s personal connection to one of the key players in the spotlight. In “Celebrity Deaths”, a profoundly influential voice in the New York indie rock scene of the late 90′s will be remembered (another death which which Phil has a personal connection). An amazing update on Phil’s beloved feline Fuzz Aldrin leads into a terrifying account on the plight and population of stray cats in Los Angeles. Two very different, and fascinating films get discussed: a documentary about a Supreme Court Justice, and a grindhouse-style prison drama starring Vince Vaughn. All that, plus some serious laughs on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #551

This week’s show will be both quite heartfelt and a whole lot of fun, even if Dean is under the weather! It starts with a discussion of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Then, in “Celebrity Deaths”, Dean and Phil remember a veteran character actor who became the patriarch of a show business dynasty, the man who played one of the most beloved characters in television history, one of the band members who brought us a truly iconic song, a popular soul singer who gave it all up in order to help people and an all too unsung power-pop guitarist. In what has become their weekly update on toxic masculinity in the news, Dean and Phil will weigh in on the two scandals rocking the Disney Corporation, the allegations agains the legendary Garrison Keillor and an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) about “killing” misogyny. After that, it’s time for the “season of self-congratulation” in Hollywood. The latest movie awards news gets analyzed and at least six new films get discussed. Finally, the show ends with some very special shout-outs to some truly terrific folks.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #247

Anywhere from 6%-10% of the U.S. workforce might be calling in sick on the Monday after the Super Bowl, but not your friends in podcasting … Even if they wanted to, there’s way too much to discuss, from the eleven show biz personages who are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths” to the Tony-winning play that constitutes the “Live Event of the Week”, from Liam Neeson kicking nature’s ass to smuggling being depicted as a victimless crime, from promising sci-fi films in development to the man who claims Fox stole his life story through wiretapped phone conversations (YOUR “Lawsuit of the Week”), Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness don’t even get to everything they hoped to discuss. There’s THAT MUCH going on inside YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour #247.
