Chillpak Hollywood Hour #564

Pre-recorded on Friday, this episode is a bit of a grab-bag, though it certainly is an hilarious grab-bag! Your friends in podcasting spend the first half of the show discussing their ambivalence about this year’s Academy Awards, with some predictions of who will win Oscars, including those likely victors that disappoint or even disgust them, and which victories might please them, and why. Then, Dean and Phil switch gears by welcoming two guests via Skype. Brandon Marsh and Alina Brazdeikene are on the team that created the game “The X-Files: Deep State” and they file a live report from the green room at X-Fest, the 25th celebration of “The X-Files”. Finally, Dean and Phil wrap up with two rounds of their new game-show rendition of “Celebrity Deaths”. This week Dean is quizzed about a jazz great (and legendary anti-Apartheid figure) who Dean does not recognize and a female icon of World War II that Dean DOES get right!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #558

This week’s show begins with an update on how the fierce, determined and ridiculously cute cat Fuzz Aldrin is recovering (you can help with that recovery by visiting http://gofundme.com/save-fuzz-aldrin”). She had to have another emergency procedure this week, which leads to a rather hilarious story about Lily Holleman, “Junior Pet Detective”. It also leads to a conversation about a surgical procedure Dean Haglund will be undergoing the first week of February. Then, Dean and Phil Leirness discuss movies – two “classics” (the comedy To Be or Not to Be and the musical Brigadoon), and five recent releases (Darren Aronosky’s Mother!, Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories, Dan Gilroy’s Roman J. Israel, Esq., Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water and the big winner at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MIssouri).

For the first time in weeks, your friends in podcasting tackle “Celebrity Deaths”, celebrating the life and careers of record producer Rick Hall, actress-singer Rose Marie and film noir icon Peggy Cummins. Then, they tackle the “small screen”, with Phil weighing in on the new Fox sitcom “LA to Vegas”, with Dean assessing the most recent “mirror universe” episode of “Star Trek: Discover” (“The Wolf Inside”), and the two of them discussing the thematic meanings of Season 11 of “The X-Files”, of the most recent episode (“Plus One”) and what the future might hold for the show with or without Gillian Anderson.
