Happy Birthday Plumey!

Today is Ken's birthday! Go over to Twitter and wish him a happy day and buy yourself cake.

Then, sit back and eat the entire cake as you listen to a day full of A Bit of a Chat with Ken Plume.

I really like this series, here are some of my favorites:

A Bit of a Chat with Ken Plume & Mike Phirman 3
Here is the description:
"In this episode, I have another chat with one half of the musical comedy duo Hard ‘N Phirm - Mr. Mike Phirman - in a trainwreck of an episode they’ve dubbed WACKY TECHSCAPADE."
Its a weird episode that at one point Ken calls "infinity complicated." It starts off with the most entertaining technical difficulties ever. Then the discussion moves to various subjects like drinking songs, DVR ready commercials and opera.
At one point Phirm starts to apologize, but then realizes it's a free show. Ken then suggests we all donate to so we can complain. It's a full proof scheme that will make him millions!
And then the hambone goes all the way.

A Bit of a Chat with Ken Plume & Dave Thomas
You don't get any funnier than Dave Thomas, but that isn't the only reason I like this one. Dave tells stories about his childhood that I don't think you can hear anywhere else. It's really wonderful.
This episode also makes me appreciate Ken's ability to make these conversations flow and NOT seem like an interview.

A Bit of a Chat with Ken Plume & Len Peralta
This one is stellar! Ken and Len are both very creative guys and this one is really a great one to sit back and enjoy. You may just learn something!

A Bit of a Chat with Ken Plume & Sharon Stiteler & Bill Stiteler

It's a fun episode that is described as:
I’m Ken Plume, and soon you’ll be listening to “A Bit Of A Chat” with me, Ken Plume.
In this episode, I have a chat with Birdchick Sharon Stiteler and writer/actor/director Bill Stiteler about birding, theatre, condiments, fugitive dogs, toast rooms, bees, and hair.
Early on Ken drops a bit of info that should be an entire Snydecast.... Laurel & Hardy in Spanish.

A Bit Of A Chat with Ken Plume & Ernest Borgnine
Borgnine was a legendary actor who passed away over the weekend. Ken talked to him a few years ago and he was a funny and charming as a person could be. It's a wonderful chat and a great way to remember Mr. Borgnine.

Or, go over to and look for one that suits your taste the best.

Defending your life

On the newest Ken PD Snydecast Ken and Dana talk about the 1991 film Defending Your Life:

Defending Your Life is a 1991 romantic comedy-fantasy film. Albert Brooks wrote, directed and stars in the film as a man who dies and arrives in heaven to find he must stand trial to advance to the heaven bonus round or something.

It also stars Meryl Streep, Rip Torn, Lee Grant and Buck Henry. One of them plays his love interest.

Brooks plays a bloated Woody Allen.

The film is available on Amazon Prime and at your local library.

 Ken chose the organ:
They also mention how the organ in Disneyland is the actual prop from the film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The one in Florida is a replica.

Ken's favorite tweets (and what we can learn from them)

Ken has 47 thousand tweets. Within that there are 2,550 photos and videos. He has 11 thousand followers... and 11 favorites.

11 tweets that he clicked "favorite" on. For some reason Twitter only shows 10. Let's take a look:

John Kovalic is a British born cartoonist. It is not clear why this tweet ended Ken's 17 month drought of favorites. Maybe he likes cheese.

Ken doesn't drink. But he writes. Perhaps this is why.

We all want to see Dave Foley naked, I suppose.

Alright, check them out: The Inbetweeners, Alan Partridge & Psychoville.
I've never put a Robin Williams video on this site. I'm not starting now. You're welcome.
I was not aware Ken was a Twin Peaks fan, but I do remember when David Lynch ruled 2 episodes of The Snydecast. If you don't remember, here's a clue: Michael Jordan. If you STILL don't remember, you're lucky.
I tried this. I assume he meant Tommy Tutone. My life involved dialing 867-5309 a whole lot.
Fair enough.

Which Tiki Bird are you?

On KEN P.D. SNYDECAST #214: It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad Whirl Ken asks Dana to choose which Tiki Bird he is.
From wiki: The attraction opened in an era when all things Polynesian were popular and was an immediate hit. It houses a Hawaiian-themed musical show "hosted" by four lifelike macaws whose plumage matches their implied countries of origin. "José" is red, white and green and speaks with a Mexican accent, voiced by Wally Boag; 

"Michael" is white and green with an Irish brogue, voiced by Fulton Burley; 
"Pierre" is blue, white and red, and has a French accent courtesy of the voice talents of Ernie Newton; 
Red, black and white "Fritz" has a German accent provided by Thurl Ravenscroft, who also voices Maori god Tangaroa near the attraction's entrance. 

Dana chose Michael. Solid choice.
