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.

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.
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.
On 15 OCT, Rear Admiral Terry McKnight, USN (Ret) book Pirate Alley: Commanding Task Force 151 Off Somalia hit the street.
Could we pick a better show for this week's best of than from February?
We have him for the full hour to discuss the fact that the problem with piracy is not going anywhere. Each year in places like Somalia it is becoming part of the local economy. In areas near poorly governed areas, it threatens the free flow of goods at market prices through the world's sea lines of communication.
Is it an economic problem, a global security problem, a political problem, or a mixture of that and more?
What is the impact of international aid, military action, and the paying of ransom? What are the best solutions, and what is working and what is not working to slow the impact of piracy?
Our guest today is Cindy Vallar, a retired librarian who first researhed pirates for a historical novel about Jean Laffite and the Battle of New Orleans.

Her two passions are pirates and Scotland. www.cindyvallar.com
Now available on DVD, VOD & SHOWTIME, bitingly satirical feminist horror/comedy CHASTITY BITES is as clever as its title.
Joining us to talk blood and abstinence are the film's writer/producer LOTTI PHARRISS KNOWLES, director JOHN V. KNOWLES, and co-star, Countess Elizabeth Bathory herself, LOUISE GRIFFITHS.
In the 1600's, Countess Elizabeth Bathory slaughtered more than 600 young women, believing that if she bathed in the blood of virgins she would stay young and beautiful forever. Still alive today, she's found a perfect hunting ground as an abstinence educator in conservative America, and the young ladies of San Griento High are poised to be her next victims. But will her unholy ritual finally be stopped by Leah Ratliff (Allison Scagliotti), feminist blogger and ambitious reporter for the school paper?
Louise Griffiths made her 2006 film debut in '06 horror movie THE DEVIL'S CHAIR, booked her first lead role in dark comedy THE REVENANT, and appeared in ALL'S FAIRE IN LOVE, starring Christina Ricci and Matthew Lillard. She's also recognized from viral ad campaign for Axe shower gel co-starring Jaime Pressly, Axe Cleans Your Balls.
Lotti Pharriss Knowles co-produced HBO Documentary Films’ VITO, produced feature I AM DIVINE, and award-winning shorts SHADOW.NET and WEAK SPECIES. Her original screenplay for CHASTITY BITES was a semi-finalist in the Acclaim Film & Television Screenwriting Competition.
John V. Knowles directed techno-thriller short SHADOW.NET, based on a WIRED Magazine article about the underground world of Internet movie piracy. He formed Weirdsmobile Productions in 2005 with wife and producing partner, Lotti. In 2011 he formed Conceptive, Inc. to create broadcast-quality branded entertainment for the web.

Host Dr. Richard Gladiator Johnson continues to explain about the missing Books of the King James Version Bible and how this came to be. Also why Western religion is called “Christianity” although the word Christian only appears 3 times in the entire King James Bible.
The foundation of what is called Western Religion was created around 325 AD and reconfigured through the years eventually expanding into multiple denominations via the “Protestant Reformation” of the 1500’s. “Christianity was forced upon the world by warfare and the colonial expansion by Eastern and Western Europe which also include the so called “Crusades” that began about 1000AD and peaked during the late 1800’s. Was this of God or Man’s Piracy of unsuspecting populations? How does this impact your walk with God today?
