Friends is an album recorded and released by Chick Corea in 1978.
The album does away with the string and horn sections of previous albums, instead focusing on a quartet with straight-ahead jazz in mind. The album cover features the Smurfs; a somewhat rare alternative cover replaces the Smurfs with porcelain animals, possibly for copyright reasons.

Friends (With Benefits) is a 2009 romantic comedy film released on June 12, 2009 at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival.
The film stars Margaret Laney as Chloe and Alex Brown as Owen, lifelong best friends and current med school students. Rounding out their tight-knit group of friends are Anne Peterson as Allison, Jake Alexander as Jeff, Lynn Mancinelli as Shirley, Branden Bradley as Brad and Rooney Mara as Tara.
Taken off a script originally written by Gorman Bechard in 1999, the film was shopped around that summer under the title "Fuck Buddies" to every major studio in Hollywood. Inevitably the script was put on the back burner until Bechard started looking for a lighter followup to his extremely dark 2005 feature You Are Alone. In 2006 Bechard teamed with writing partner, Ashley McGarry and they began to rewrite the film, changing the title to "Friends (with Benefits)", and casting Margaret Laney in the lead role.
Production began in April 2007. The film was shot over 18 days in New Haven, Connecticut.
In recent decades, other, related alphabets, such as Shan and modern Mon, have been restructured according to the standard of the now-dominant Burmese alphabet.
Burmese is written from left to right and requires no spaces between words, although modern writing usually contains spaces after each clause to enhance readability.
The earliest evidence of the Burmese alphabet is dated to 1035, while a casting made in the 18th century of an old stone inscription points to 984. Burmese calligraphy originally followed a square format but the cursive format took hold from the 17th century when popular writing led to the wider use of palm leaves and folded paper known as parabaiks. A stylus would rip these leaves when making straight lines. The alphabet has undergone considerable modification to suit the evolving phonology of the Burmese language.
