SORT BY Relevancy
Listen in to Walter Laffitte, President & General Manager of Canal Movers & Logistics Corp. & Vice President of LACMA. Walter talks about what LACMA is all about and its purpose. Also, a special treat from Richard Lopez of Dell!
A day late, but now available on Stitcher (you can get the Stitcher app and rate and review the show!), your friends in podcasting are back at it, battling back the forces of darkness with their lethal wits and their irreverent bon mots!
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness discuss the snubs in the recent Oscars’ “In Memorium” tribute, Dean’s upcoming live comedy shows, MesoAmerican art, Chris Carter’s new show, their ongoing search for the TRUTH and much, much more …
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, now on Stitcher!
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.
This week’s show opens with four emails from listeners like you, prompting discussions about Henry Fonda, spaghetti westerns, the LAX shooting, depression, kindness, listening, a sketch comedy podcast, the Nielsen television ratings and digital piracy.
That’s not all, though …
There’s a live event involving actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and filmmaker Nicole Holofcener.
There are movies like The House on Haunted Hill, The Grapes of Wrath and three of this year’s Oscar hopefuls.
And there’s even the “sunk cost fallacy”, the third of eight ways our brains lie to us every day.
It’s all in an hour (and two minutes) of work for your friends in podcasting!
From the “7 Up” series of documentaries to a question from a loyal listener about biographies, from a LACMA exhibit of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography to such historic buildings as Artemisia and the California Club Preservation, from the death of Daily Variety to the philosophy of George Orwell, preservation, documentation and human decency are foremost on the minds of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week.
So, join your friends in podcasting for another nourishing and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
The show begins with selections from a rather hilarious Skype conversation between Phil Leirness and March Hershon of Succotash.
Following the theme song, Dean Haglund is back, and tells of his whirlwind, speeding-ticket-filled road trip to Winnipeg and back.
Violence prevention is very much on the mind of Phil, as he participated in a gang violence “interruption” on Saturday night. He talks about that and the short film Flawless.
Mostly, though, movies are what your friends in podcasting really want to talk about, from the role of critics, to the resurrection of Harrison Ford, to the post-apocalypse bandwagon, to the lack of roles for women, to the work of Stanley Kubrick, to the latest installment of Star Trek.
All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
Dean and Phil weigh in on the Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath.
Dean and Phil respond to two emails from listeners (one dealing with Robert Maplethorpe and one dealing with the role of the audience in art).
Dean and Phil remember a comedic genius and a game-changing artist, both of whom died in the past week.
Dean and Phil will continue their on-again, off-again debate on the craft of acting, and join together in singing the praises of the great Walter Matthau.
All that, plus a Live Event of the Week, and a running time of an hour AND four minutes …
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour (and four minutes) with Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness!
Coming to you a little bit late, but with a bonus four minutes, this week’s show is action-packed and really puts the “your” in YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as Dean and Phil discuss … An email from listener Lejon Johnson about a Caravaggio discussion in episode 295 … An email from listener Matt Giles about the success of Veronica Mars on Kickstarter … A Facebook post from listener Greg Vincent about last week’s “genius” vs. “artist” discussion … A voicemail message of apology from listener and podcaster March Hershon … And finally, a request from listener Patricia Brady that we bring back classic episode #182 from the archives.
All that, plus your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s latest acting gig, his most recent art show, Spielberg’s newest collaboration with the dead Stanley Kubrick, what Jon Stewart’s going to do on his summer vacation, Phil’s advice for auditioning actors, what they’re reading, a Live Event of the Week and a Lawsuit of the Week.
Wow. Let’s get started, shall we?
It’s the first episode of 2013 and since it’s early January, where would your friends in podcasting be but poolside atop downtown Los Angeles?!
So, grab the sunscreen and join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness as they discuss fine art, popular music, television, movies and celebrity deaths!
From record setting box office by a film from France, to precedent-setting success by a VOD release, from the most popular filming locations in L.A. to the return of 1980′s action heroes, from the smash hit album “21″ by Adele, to the death of one of the most popular singers of the 1950′s, this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour has all the news, views and reviews you’ve come to expect and enjoy.
Happy 2013, everybody! It promises to be our best year yet!
Start with the end of the world …
Throw in a World Premiere, holiday-themed “Live Event of the Week” penned by a Pulitzer Prize-winner …
Add a giant helping of Stanley Kubrick …
Stir in a letter from a listener in Ireland …
Mix in a pinch of James Bond, Alex Jones, “confirmation bias” and Chris Tucker to augment the flavor …
Warm with fond memories of the late Larry Hagman …

At LACMA, Sirmans has installed Color and Form, selections from the Broad Collection to coincide with the museum’s presentation of Blinky Palermo; an exhibition from the museum’s permanent collection titled Human Nature (cocurated with Christine Y. Kim) and a solo presentation of works by Robert Therrien from the collections of Broad and LACMA.

Olmec civilization, which began sometime around 1400 BC, was centered in the Gulf Coast states of Veracruz and Tabasco. Olmec architects and artists produced the earliest monumental structures and sculptures in Mexico, including enormous basalt portrait heads of their rulers. LACMA just exhibited the "Olmec: Colossal Masterworks of Ancient Mexico". It is said that LACMA, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, refuses to acknowledge the Afrikan presence in Olmec culture... Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn joins The Pulse Live this Saturday to shed light on the African influence in the Olmec Civilization.
