Chillpak Hollywood Hour #517

You would think when recording more than a day late, your friends in podcasting might be in something of a hurry … Instead, they take this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and turn it into a leisurely 70 minute conversation about the UK “The Office”, “The Larry Sanders Show”, the acting intensive Phil taught this past weekend, recent news about their film The Lady Killers, a recent feature film about improv comedy, the great Don Rickles, and an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) all about last week’s “Top Ten Artists” episode. All that, plus Dean delves further into the political and moral commentary contained within the paintings of Manet, they discuss what they are reading (a book that might become a future film by Phil and Dean actually reading fiction!), and there is a whole lot of movie development news, featuring the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Christian Bale, Sylvester Stallone and Joss Whedon!

Sounds like a good show to us!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #342

Thanksgiving, Birthdays, live events and what they’re reading are first on the docket for your friends in podcasting to discuss.

Then it’s onto a free-for all analysis of sequels, remakes, Hunger Games, Leonardo DiCaprio, a Broadway adaptation and a few Oscar hopefuls.

Finally, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness remember an improv comedy great, a young leading man, an animation heiress, a screenwriting guru and a publishing titan.

Happy December! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #261

How else would Year Six of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begin, but with an on-air production meeting? Of course, having been away from the Rational Exuberance offices (inside an “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”) for the past two weeks, your friends in podcasting have many logistics to discuss, including their end of the Mayan Calendar show and the production of not one, but TWO sequels to their documentary The Truth Is Out There.

Dean discusses his road trip adventures in art, from studying Van Gogh in Philadelphia, to painting portraits in the West Hills of Texas, as well as the status of his Kickstarter campaign to create the graphic novel “Shock and Awesome”.

Phil discusses his travels throughout the UK, including screenings at Goldsmiths College, the University of Lincoln and the Birmingham UFO Group, attending the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival, co-presenting Alex Lewczuk’s top-notch Siren FM “Midweek Drive” shows, investigating the mystery of the Lincoln Cathedral, interviewing fascinating figures throughout the UK on topics ranging from bees to airport security scans, from Mary Magdalene to utopian societies.

Oh, and what’s the deal with all the strange cats in Brighton?!

All that, plus the books Dean and Phil are reading and plenty of big laughs. How could there not be big laughs? After all, your friends in podcasting are jet lagged!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #165

Nobly serving their countries (and the world) through fine pieces of podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness come out of the gates with guns blazing and hit you with this action-packed extravaganza. You won’t want to miss this one if you enjoy or care about any of the following: World Cup, the National Gallery (in D.C.), Monet, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Leger, Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Rivera, Renoir, the Library of Congress, Carl Jung, Thomas Jefferson, Virginia, The Homestead, Washington and Lee University.

Want Hollywood news and analysis? Dean and Phil tackle the controversies surrounding Roman Polanski, The Last Airbender, The Incredible Hulk, and James Bond. They analyze the recent Emmy nominations for excellence in television, heaping cheers and/or jeers onto “Mad Men”, “Breaking Bad”, “Lost”, “Glee”, “Modern Family” and Conan O’Brien. They offer exciting remake news and answer a listener question about television directors. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all, and that’s why they discuss a VERY interesting email sent to them by a listener concerning “simulated realities”. Finally, your friends in podcasting discuss the books they’ve been reading and offer a strong book recommendation from a loyal listener.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve already heard the show once and we can’t wait to listen to it again!
