asked: "Dude, ShirtMogul is currently selling a Friends-themed tee. I am really tempted to get it."
I totally just bought one.
asked: "if the characters from friends were to go to hogwarts, what house would they be in and why??"
i basically agree with everything in this post:
asked: "Would you ever tag a post with 'character: chanandler bong'?"
that’s miss chanandler bong.
asked: "wow, your collection is AMAZING! i've only just gotten into friends (as of january 2013) so it makes me kinda sad that i don't have a collection or anything really to boast... but wow they have (or rather, had?) a lot of merch! do you know where (and if) you can (still) find magazines about friends?"
Thank you! Yup, there was indeed a LOOOOOT of Friends merch back in the day. Especially here in the UK, with all the kitchenware and stationery stuff.
For magazines featuring the cast on the cover, eBay is the best place to look. People are always selling second hand magazines there, I’ve even managed to get a few myself.
asked: "Your collection is so awesome! Thanks for sharing that with us, I love looking through the pictures. And I love seeing all the Jen magazine clippings since you know she's my fav too! :D Question - what are the individual character quotes on the character posters in the second to last pic in the "Postcards" section? Just curious, Ican only read Joey and Monica's. And I love how you even have one of Gunther! :) Have a great weekend!"
Thank you! :)
Yeah, my collection of Jen clippings surpasses those of every other cast member, and even clippings for the show itself. Haha. ;)
The postcards say:
Rachel - “If she wanted to be more like me, why couldn’t she just copy my hairstyle of something?”
Ross - “WE WERE ON A BREAK!”
Phoebe: “Smelly cat, smelly cat. what are they feeding you?”
Chandler: “Could I BE any more funny?”
asked: "Hi:) I love your collection and I've always wanted that Frankie says relax t shirt where did you find it? And also where can I find some mugs and Ross's trivia game?"
The shirt I got from the NBC Store, but they no longer seem to have it in stock. However, you can find versions of it in other places, such as eBay or Truffle Shuffle.
The NBC store has mugs, and quite often people sell mugs on eBay. And Truffle Shuffle have even started selling Central Perk mugs!
If you live in the UK, you can probably walk into a local charity shop and find Ross’ trivia game (two of my local charity shops have it alone at the moment!) - but if not, once again, eBay is your best bet.
asked: "Maybe posters of original Friends edits/gifs need a separate tag like 'Friedit' or something to that effect? That way you don't get so many reposts and can enjoy genuine ones. :)"
We really should start doing this. It’s just getting everyone in on it, and have new posters know about it, that I’m unsure of.
And the thing is, the f.r.i.e.n.d.s tag was ours for that (because ‘friends’ is filled with people posting pictures of their rl friends) and I just HATE that that tag has been abused now.
asked: "oh my god im watching the one where the stripper cries and it reminded me of you because of your icon!!! You're the best <3"
asked: "If you receive this message then someone is trying to tell you that they are incredibly happy you ever joined tumblr. You are not only running a tumblr worthwhile following, but you are also a totally kind and awesome person. Without you my tumblr experience wouldn’t have been the same. <3 Thank you for being you <3 If you want to show someone else your love, send this to the 10 nicest people you follow <3"
asked: "so-- just to clarify there is no friends reunion and tumblr is killing me with its lies?"
asked: "They got the info wrong. The NBC show "Go ON" is having a mini Friend's reunion with Courtney Cox and Matt LeBlanc (the first time they've been seen on TV together since friends)"
The Go On reunion happened 3 weeks ago, and it was with Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox (CHANDLER AND MONICA (!!!)).
I actually think they’ve fed from this and created their own story:
Which actually isn’t new news, as they announced Matt was going to guest star on Lisa’s show last year.
asked: "Right, I'm not the only one who massively shipped phoebe and david am I?"
I’m camp Mike/Phoebe myself, but David/Phoebe were adorable.
I’m sure you’re not alone, though!
It was via the Friends fandom, back in the ~day, that I discovered online fandom, fanfiction and shipping. The first fanfics I ever read were Friends fanfics. So I very much have indeed.
asked: "what do you think of the carter/abby ship? they were (are) my OTP when they weren't together, I was quite disappointed by their relationship development :( I concede that luka/abby were probably better in the long run, though!"
Tbh, I didn’t really care for Carter/Abby. I didn’t hate them or anything and I did enjoy some of their moments… but overall, I don’t think they were good for each other. Plus, long before I was a Luka/Abby shipper, I came from being die hard Carter/Lucy shipper. I never really got over her death, and the demise of what could have been with them. :(
