    in Christianity

    We are living in the Last Days. Man is trying to become God. Scientists are trying to merge humans and computers. Home technologies are spying on you inside your very home. During these last days there are threats of war, violence, sex, drugs, and all manner of wickedness taking place. In Revelation 14, the  Angels had a message for mankind. What was it and how does it affect us during these last days?

    in Art

    My guest on Thursday, March 27th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be artist Harriete Estel Berman, who joins us to discuss the critical topic of copycats and artistic piracy in the arts and craft communities.


    About: The craft community is under assault by copycat thieves in the “Age of the Internet.” BAD and UGLY behaviors proliferate within the craft community. International pirates steal images and retail giants raid the craft marketplace for ideas. Naïve and enthusiasm cloak unethical behavior with "I love your work and want to make one for myself.” Do you recognize the problems? Recognize the behavior? Understand Fair Use? Need recommendations? Join this important and topical conversation with Jay Whaley and Harriete Estel Berman.

  • The Legal Show: The Case of the Expendables - Privacy Versus Piracy

    in Legal

    Arrorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.



    The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a competent local attorney for any legal advice they may require.



    This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
    Tonight we discuss privacy on the web versus illegal piracy activity.  Lionsgate film studio has been allowed to subpoena companies to help it find those who pirated copies of The Expendables 3.  They will now ask companies including Google and GoDaddy to find the sharers' identities.  Third parties also subpoenad include CloudFlare, Incapsula, Google, GoDaddy and Domains by Proxy LLC.  Lionsgate may demand the production of electronically stored information such as billing records, website content, server logs and correspondence.  To many, this flies in the face of privacy concerns that are very hot right now.  Tune in to hear where this falls on the “legally allowable” versus “internet privacy" spectrum.

    Episode 170: Stolen Seas; Tales of Somali Piracy

    in Military

    We have heard from industry, military leaders, Marines, and private security providers, this Sunday we are going to look at piracy at a more personal level with director Thymaya Payne of the documentary, Stolen Seas; Tales of Somali Piracy. He will be our guest for the full hour.
    From the show promo:
    The filmmakers have spent the past three years traveling to some of the world's most violent locales in order to make this documentary on Somali piracy, Stolen Seas. Utilizing exclusive interviews and unparalleled access to real pirates, hostages, hostages' relatives, ship-owners, pirate negotiators and experts on piracy and international policy, Stolen Seas presents a chilling exploration of the Somali pirate phenomenon.
    The film throws the viewer, through audio recordings and found video, right into the middle of the real-life hostage negotiation of a Danish shipping vessel, the CEC Future. As the haggling between the ship's stoic owner Per Gullestrup, and the pirate's loquacious negotiator, Ishmael Ali, drags on for 70 days, these two adversaries' relationship takes an unexpected turn and an unlikely friendship is born.
    Stolen Seas is an eye opening refutation of preconceived ideas on how or why piracy has become the world's most frightening multi-million dollar growth industry.

    Chillpak Hollywood Hour #339 - Publishing, Piracy, German Expressionism

    in Film

    On this week’s show, your friends in podcasting begin with a brief exchange concerning Tom Cruise and Veterans Day, followed by a discussion of the publishing business and “novellas”. Then, a note from a loyal listener leads to more discussion about Vincent Price, before Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness launch into a discussion of German Expressionism, the impact it had on silent films, film noir, David Lynch and even the art work of … Dean, himself.


    Then, the gents follow up on an email from a listener last week concerning digital piracy. This results in Dean and Phil listing and analyzing the top ten most pirated movies of the past year and whether any of their financial fortunes were actually harmed by this piracy.


    Then, it’s the ten movie trailers that forever changed the way films were advertised and sold.


    Finally, Phil wraps up with his take on the versatile and brilliant Stephen Merchant’s new series “Hello Ladies”.


    Trust us, somehow, the entire show turns out to be a riot.


    As ever … On YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
