WHAT IS HOLLYWOOD?
What does it stand for?

Today we look at the esoteric and metaphysical nature of Hollywood.
“The druids were tree worshippers, especially the oak. The holly was their most sacred symbol because it was sacred to mother Holle or Hel, the [Norse] goddess of the underworld. The druids was conquered by the Romans as was Jersalem, and all there where mixed together from western christianity.
The origin of the television set was heavily shrouded in both spiritualism and the occult, writes author Stefan Andriopoulos in his new book Ghostly Apparitions. In fact, as its very name implies, the television was first conceived as a technical device for seeing at a distance: like thetelephone (speaking at a distance) and telescope (viewing at a distance), the television was intended as an almost magical box through which we could watch distant events unfold, a kind of technological crystal ball.

There is already one dead person attributed beyond Michael Brown's grave in reparations for his death. Mr. Joshua said his son DeAndre Joshua should not have died in lieu of Michael Brown because he never testified to a grand jury. Then why was there so much talk about his testimony. A special guest may appear today on this show about it. Audio will be reviewed on the perspective of Ty Pruitt's thought processes regarding his cousin's death, rioting & looting and Michael Brown's step father. Jon Yoder will share Angelina's stunning choice to direct "UnBroken" (co written by the Coen brothers) about a converted Christian who survived 47 days at sea, Japanese torture during WWII, and was a long distance Olympic runner. Jane will share a few moments of Angelina Jolie's momentuous life with first hand Hollywood accounts by friends who knew her. A remarkable lady who often shields her true self. Overall, its a casual conversation but both Jane and Jon agree that Ms. Jolie's choice to direct a movie was a very credible subject.

Just when you thought....
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!
