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!
How does a show that begins with a lengthy discussion of Phil’s hairstyles thru the years end up being so darn inspiring?
When it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!
On this week’s show, Dean and Phil discuss The Paramount Ranch, westerns, Chaplin, Alexander Payne, the moon landing and history belonging to those that move and delight us.
Dean shares great advice for comedy writers.
Phil explains both the good and the bad in our move to BlogTalkRadio.
Then, your friends in podcasting remember a famous werewolf, a punk rock icon, the Grand Dame of Broadway, the preeminent bass player of his generation, the last “real man”, a war hero and Olympian, and a 21 year-old actress and filmmaker.

3 Tips for Hollywood Newbie's
Would you go on a trip if you didn’t know where you’re going? How do you navigate a route if you don’t know the final destination? Every year over 100,000 dreamers pack up their lives, quit their day jobs and move to Hollywood to pursue a career in the entertainment business; but most don’t have an address for their dreams.
There are 3 major steps you need to take so you can save time, money and create the opportunities you want in the entertainment business.
Step #1- Get Local Experience. First, make a list of all your skills.
Step #2- Make Local Connections- Maybe you’ve tried calling several key people in your area, but they are not hiring.
Step #3- Living Requirements- Most likely if you live anywhere else besides New York or Hollywood, you get a lot for your money.
Once you get to Hollywood, there are many options of ways to make money and still have time to pursue your dream career. Next week, I will share the top 8 day jobs in Hollywood.

Your friends in podcasting pick up right where they left off at the end of last week's (very popular) installment. In fact, it's as if they just kept talking ... This week, the discussion touched on the return of Nikki Finke, the charges brought against the Midnight Rider filmmakers, The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the shot down Malaysia Airlines flight, Schrodinger's Cat, our cognitive awareness of a 3-dimensional structure, and much, much more.
Back when YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour was just getting started (as "From the Heart of Hollywood"), it's quite likely that Erynn Petrulis was the youngest listener of the show, teen-ager, living in the UK, who had already acted on-stage with Dean Haglund (while he was touring the UK with his one-man "X-Files" improv).
Now, 7 years later, Erynn is a college graduate and a budding actress, having appeared in dozens of plays and short films. More important, she becomes the youngest guest yet on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
So, join us poolside, high atop the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, as the delightful Miss Petrulis swaps stories with her two mentors, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness
