Another very unique show and fun as heck from start to finish … Acid jazz, a live in-studio music performance, “The Price is Right”, celebrity sightings, the launch of Sci-Fest and much, much more … Including a computer snafu that endangered the very existence of this week’s show were it not for the Apple wizardry of our special guest!
Dean and Phil’s last “live” show for a few weeks is full of all the rich, delicious, nourishing podcasty goodness you’ve come to expect from YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Your friends in podcasting discuss their Sacramento adventures, the creators of Superman, a present-day comic book master, absurdist theatre, Samuel Beckett, Bully, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, the Occupy movement, the mysterious life of Frances Farmer, the brilliant writing of David McCullough, the best stage actor in Los Angeles, and Torchwood.
All that plus more on The Hunger Games, more on “pronoia”, a celebrity death and a lawsuit involving the paranormal …
And don’t worry, even though they are hitting the road, Dean and Phil have two special shows planned during their absence!
Has there ever been a more wild and free-wheeling grab bag of topics on a single installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as there is on this week’s show? Consider the topics discussed:
The mysterious death of Thomas Kinkade, the occult meaning of words and symbols, Dean Haglund running a 5K race, the legacy of Mike Wallace, the films of Guy Maddin, the latest in the MPAA’s battle with The Weinstein Company over the rating of Bully.
All that, plus your friends in podcasting weigh in on a documentary about Comic-con, a Woody Allen drama, a John Cassavetes classic, two great, award-winning independent films from last year (one from the UK, one from South Korea).
And on top of all of that, we even have a brand new theme song by The B-Film Extras!
Happy Halloween, everybody!
From James Bond to Independence Day, from disaster films of the 70′s to a silent film that might win Best Picture this year, from a lawsuit over falsehoods in advertising to a lawsuit over screenplay theft, your friends in podcasting are definitely putting the “Hollywood” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
Of course, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are also putting the “YOUR” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, answering emails, Facebook posts and even angry tweets from you (yes, YOU!), the listeners!
Oh, and heads up Chicago, Seattle and Vancouver, B.C.! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE is on its way to your cities THIS month!
Phil Leirness is back from the east coast, and he brings with him a suitcase full of stories, ranging from the White House State Dinner crashers to Japanese “herbivores” to his own debut on the Broadway stage! Plus, he plugs the next production from Rational Exuberance and an interview he will be doing on Blog Talk Radio’s Good Karma Stories hosted by Ed Moy.
Dean Haglund is taking off for the east coast, for a starring role in a sci-fi horror adventure Atlantis Down. He previews that experience and discusses how his dance training has come in handy both as an actor and as a performer in action sequences.
Finally, ’tis the season for giving, so Dean and Phil leave you with a musical gift: A short snippet of the theme song from their forthcoming documentary The Truth Is Out There, written and performed by The B-Film Extras.
