Chillpak Hollywood Hour #601

On the agenda in another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is a full report on Dean and Phil’s movie The Lady Killers at the historic BAL Theatre, and a full report on what makes that theater so darn historic, the aftermath of the devastating California fires, Orson Welles’ The Other Side of the Wind, movie pacing, and in “Celebrity Deaths”, an innovator in motion picture title design, a country music and television icon, a screenwriting legend, a beloved television villainess, and a Shakespearean actor who gave one of the all-time great big screen performances without actually appearing on-screen are all remembered.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #600

Seven important notes about this week’s show:

1) It’s our 600th episode!
2) It features a brand new version of the theme song appropriate to Dean’s relocation to the Motor City.
3) A horrible recording problem leads to a few choppy transitions at the start of the show and to an extremely bad electronic hum during the first 25 minutes or so of the show.
4) We have done the best we can to get rid of the hum and to at least make these first 25 minutes listenable, and you will want to bear with us as those minutes contain very personal conversation between Dean and Phil about things they love lost in the current SoCal fires, what they love that is seriously threatened by those fires, and about a great Canadian actor of Dean’s acquaintance who died this month. There is also a great story about baby diapers!
5) Several amazing movies get discussed – including the Sandra Bullock starring post-apocalyptic, action-horror vehicle Bird Box, the Coen Brothers rather amazing Western anthology feature The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Alfonso Cuaron’s seminal black-and-white memory piece Roma and Dean and Phil’s very own The Lady Killers, which Dean has finally seen!
6) The show is 72 minutes long, with about 45 minutes of that boasting clean audio!
7) We wish you all a “Malkovich Hug”!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #232

Starting like the opening to a spy thriller, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour takes to the open road, as Dean Haglund clears customs on his way back from Australia and is picked up curbside at LAX by Phil Leirness (himself only recently returned from the Pacific Northwest).

No sooner has Phil put the car in gear, than the conversation comes fast and furious – as insightful, irreverent and inspiring as you’ve come to expect.

So, hop in the back seat and buckle up because your friends in podcasting are about to burn some serious rubber on the information superhighway!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #230

From upstate New York to Melbourne, Australia, from Salem, Oregon to the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, your friends in podcasting are off and running from the opening bell in this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

From art shows to movie screenings, from sociopaths to workplace morale, from lawsuits to political protests, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have a lot on their minds and a lot to cover and they discuss it all with their usual irreverence, insight and inspiring, thought-provoking conversation.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #198

It’s Oscar Week here in Hollywood and it’s here on the Chillpak Hollywood Hour Oscar post-game show where the games REALLY begin! Dean and Phil have, as always, ten dollars wagered on the outcome of their predicted winners in all twenty-four categories.

Find out and enjoy Dean and Phil’s insightful, irreverent and sometimes scathing takes on the motion picture industry’s night of nights.
