Chillpak Hollywood Hour #383

It’s too darn hot in Los Angeles and your friends in podcasting are high as proverbial kites on codeine swirl frappuccinos!

Dean performed in a “Live Event of the Week” and this fact leads to a discussion of public transportation, the immune system and Biddy Mason.

Phil spent all week (and the week before that) trying to get their new film submitted to Sundance, and in the process watch documentaries about The Magnificent Seven, Sam Peckinpah and Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory. He also saw the last film to star the great James Gandolfini (and boasting merely the latest indelible performance from the masterful Tom Hardy).

Two “Lawsuits of the Week” are discussed, which leads to analysis of sexual abuse in Hollywood, domestic violence in professional football and the role of interns in show business.

A great comic and a legendary big-screen villain are remembered.

All that, plus much more … Pass the Chillpak. It’s too darn hot!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #377

Even after more than 7 years of changing the way you listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting are still able to bring you an unusual episode, even by their own admittedly unusual standards!

This week’s show is quite the grab-bag …

It all starts with longtime listener (and key collaborator in The Lady Killers) Shaun Parker telling an amazing true story about his quest to deliver home-made candy to Robert Redford.

Then, Dean interviews his old pal, writer, sketch comic and comic book creator Ian Boothby and Ian’s wife, artist and comic book creator Pia Guerra. They all talk San Diego Comic-Con.

Finally, Phil returns to discuss several movies with Dean.

Something for everyone? We like to think so! Enjoy.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #348

What other show covers such a range of topics as cognitive dissonance, psychogenic fugue states, memory, time travel, the Golden Globes, San Diego Comic-Con, California small claims court and the remains of ancient civilizations in the Amazon?

It’s just another hour in the office for Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #199

It’s our first show on our all new, truly independent website and what an action-packed show it is!   Dean and Phil recount their experience sneak previewing The Truth Is Out There and UFO X-Fest.  They review three new films (Take Me Home Tonight, The Adjustment Bureau, Trust).   They take on the latest development and distribution news.   They tackle Charlie Sheen, Paul Haggis, The New Yorker, Twitter and Scientology.   They even take time to remember two Hollywood personages who died too late to be included in the Oscars’ “In Memorium” montage.   There’s also a tantalizing preview of next week’s show (which will feature a special guest!).   It’s been hell for us around here with websites failing, feedburners pointing in the wrong direction, shows becoming unavailable, so we really hope you enjoy the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #164

It’s the day after Independence Day here in the USA, and your friends in podcasting are celebrating the “independents”. An hour dedicated to independent film, filmmaking, film festivals and the many and varied paths film artists take to get where they are going. Dean and Phil welcome special guest Josh Mandel, a Slamdance film festival programmer, a documentary filmmaker, an eloquent, enthusiastic, informative speaker, and a darn stylish fellow!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #141

Phil just got back from Park City, Utah, and he reports on all the Sundance and Slamdance activities. He and Dean also finish recapping their long voyage to the Pacific Northwest, with some particularly spooky stories about the area in and surrounding Yakima, Washington. This week, they’re on the road to Texas, but before they depart, they’ll be conducting an interview with the legendary Eric Roberts. They talk about this and weigh in on a wide variety of topics including Conan O’Brien’s last “Tonight Show”, the Producers Guild of America Awards, the Golden Globes, Avatar and what they’re reading … They even discuss complaints they’ve received about the audio quality of recent shows while actually having audio problems! It’s all this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
