This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with discussions inspired by emails from listeners, including such topics as Titanic, the behavior of James Cameron (and directors and actors in general), and the fact that “pronoia” (NOT “paranoia”) might destroy ‘ya.
Your friends in podcasting spend part of the show in the state capital of California, preparing to appear on the morning television news program “Good Day Sacramento” (you can view a clip of their appearance right here). While waiting in a secret location, they riff on the election challenge faced by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the Family Research Council’s apparent dislike of vegetables, the staggering box office record of The Lion King stage musical and what it might mean for the future of performers’ unions.
All that, plus The Live Event of the Week and Dean and Phil weigh in on The Cabin in the Woods, The Hunger Games and a film about a machete-wielding clown during the Spanish Civil War.
And we hope you’ll take time to view the fantastic video Dean put together in support of the graphic novel he’s making.
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!
