Tsunku…revealed to be a fan of “Friends”?!

The reason for me getting up so early on a weekend day as I usually like to sleep in (since I wake up at 1:30 am Mon-Fri to go to work!) is that I spent the most of Saturday sleeping…I've had a cold all week long and it's just gotten worse on Friday. The funny thing is that I don't even have any cold medication as I rarely catch a cold ever. Stomach viruses….that's another story! 😛 So what better way to spend the little time that I was awake yesterday in taking in a few episodes of my favorite t.v. sitcom of all time, "Friends." 

I just love this show soooo much and I can watch the entire series over and over and over…which I do! I can't even remember how many times I've watched this series in its entirety but it may be borderline obsessive at this point! 😛 So I'm watching season 1 (again!!) and when I get to the fourth disc something in the first episode on that disc catches my attention for seemingly the first time as I can recite a lot of the dialog from ah…too many viewings….and I it's funny that I've never noticed this before. Jennifer Aniston's character "Rachel" is wearing an outfit which is very similar to the outfits worn by Momusu on their debut commercial single "Morning Coffee"!!! Here have a look!


Okay Momusu are wearing tall black boots while Rachel is wearing cute white high socks and there is a slight difference in their plaid skirts' color scheme but for the most part don't their outfits look eerily similar?! Okay maybe it's just my cold giving me strange thoughts and visions but I think Tsunku is secretly a big fan of "Friends"!! ^-^ And since "Friends" did debut in 1994, about 4 years before "Morning Coffee" was released…anything strange is possible! 😛

  1. That's funny! I wonder what she'd sound like trying to sing Morning Coffee..xD.

    Amazing that you would catch that! :PFriends is real good. I'm also a Steinfeld man… Boy In The Bubble!! Plus, for the first time in a long time, I've found a Sci-Fi series that I really like, the new re-imagined Battlestar Galactica! Alas, this is the last season… :(Hope that you feel better soon dear! ♥ I was just reading about people that have chronic stomach bugs… That they have a way now to "starve" the bad bugs without harming the good ones! I'll have to look for that article. I believe it was published in The Economist.So, your actual work hours are 2AM – 10:30AM M-F Hawaiian time??Mine is SUN – 10:30AM – 9PM M/T/W 3PM-1:30AM PSTPretty weird, huh? But it's only a 4 day week and I miss all the traffic!! :)Hugs

    I love Friends too :D. I haven't seen in it such a long time, which is unfortunate…The similarity that you noticed between Jennifer's and Morning Musume's outfits is great XD. I'm not sure I would of noticed that!


  4. (tries to imagine Jennifer Aniston performing "Morning Coffee"…….) Haha I'd imagine that she'd have a cute version even if her voice doesn't quite match the song….or perhaps I'm not imagining strongly enough! 😛


  5. It's funny I don't know why I never noticed it before…I was watching this episode for the umpteenth ("ump" is another imaginary word of mine which I use when I cannot seem to remember how many times something has occurred but I know it's quite a lot! 😛 ) time and I was like…wait a minute!! :O And then I went to get the single. I actually start at 4 am..I used to start at 3 am but I get up extra early so that I can get ready without any rush and I even take a short nap in between and I know that sounds odd but it's all part of my early morning ritual. 😛 No traffic is a blessing too! 🙂

    So, "ump" means "many, many" (or beaucoup) in the Dinty dialect… ;)I sometimes I have little (insert light bulb here) moments too. So, it's not just me! Except, I think that your bulb is a lot brighter than mine (imagine my dim, flickering bulb not even attracting stray moths) ^^Imagines MB's "ritual" like dance of the shobijin summoning Mothra! ^^Mosura ya Mosura
    Mothra O Mothra
    Dongan kasakuyan Indo muu (Dengan kesaktian Indukmu)
    If we were to call for helpWith your mother's might
    Rusuto uiraadoa (Restuilah doa)
    Over timeAnswer our prayer
    Hanba hanbamuyan (Hamba hambamu yang)
    Over seaYour servants
    Randa banunradan Tounjukanraa ((Ter)landa bangunlah dan Tunjukkanlah)
    Like a wave you'd comeOvercome, rise and show
    Kasaku yaanmu (Kesaktianmu)
    Our guardian angel!Your Power!!My "ritual" is highly variable (and I try not to wake Godzilla, or other Tokyo stompin' monsters!) since Sunday is different hours than the rest of the week and it's only a 4 day week (Praise the Lord!!) So, now I know that just when I am arriving home during the week (about 2AM), you are heading off to work 🙂 A certain synchronicity there, wouldn't you say?? :)Hark! Make way! Here comes MB in her Ninja black Civic, blasting the H!P tunes at full military power!! (Ever see the movie Singles, where the guy installs big speakers in the girls' car to impress her, and as he shows it off to her, it keeps getting louder and louder (as he frantically tries to turn it down) till it finally blows out the back window?!) ^^


  7. Haha I just had one of those…"wait a minute" moments when I was watching this particular episode! 😛 I was amazed at just how similar they really are when I went to compare hers with the singles' outfits. I love "Friends" so much and I'm happy that you're a fan too! 🙂


  8. Haha no moths for me! I love "Singles" and I really liked Bridget Fonda in this movie…I have the DVD but I haven't watched it in ages! Wasn't there a Paul Westerberg song on the soundtrack? If this is the right soundtrack I used to play that song over and over… LOL that was great scene with her new car stereo!! :O Something about those characters you could really relate to in some strange kind of way. 🙂 I think you mentioned that you like this girl a lot! Leah Dizon? Well she is releasing a shashinshuu that you may want to purchase. It's actually being called a "mook" on Amazon Japan's website…"mook" is a amusing term that they use for magazine/books. If you want to order her shashinshuu here's the address. For some reason I couldn't link it here. I'm not sure if you'll be able to past this though.http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A2%E3%83%BB%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%BE%E3%83%B3%E5%86%99%E7%9C%9F%E9%9B%86-%E3%83%94%E3%83%A5%E3%82%A2%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A2-%E9%A3%AF%E5%A1%9A%E6%98%8C%E5%A4%AA-%E6%92%AE%E5%BD%B1/dp/4081020728/ref=pe_5752_7259672_as_txt_4/

    Bridget and Matt where great in this movie, largely because of their chemistry. 🙂 It really was a movie of that time… '90s Grunge Seattle. I'm am so glad that you really liked this film! :)Do you mean Westerburg's Dyslexic Heart or Waiting for Somebody? Most likely the first! 🙂 Do I read you correctly, You need me directly? Help me with this part. Do I love you? Do I hate you? I got a dyslexic heart?I mentioned Leah as yet another hapa making it in Japan and she's pretty cute. I may have to get her photobook, just to show my support, ya' know! 😉 Thanks for looking out for me. I can see the link OK. Not sure if Amazon JP will let me order. I can do Amazon UK and Canada fine though, so we'll see! 🙂 I am discovering Kuraki Mai (Mai-K) again. She's a Scorpio sista', so is especially deserving in my book… So cool, converting Youtube videos to iPhone with that free program I mentioned! And the Princesses are thrilled with the videos on their lil' pink Nano! Have to make them some Berryz and C-ute videos!! ^^ You be their Aunty Berryz! 😛


  10. Yes "Dyslexic Heart." You should be able to change the language to English on the Amazon Japan site and I just remember you liked her a lot! I hope her photo book's nice if you decide to order it!
