Launching Operation Tie Clips and Skittles!


We want more Goren and Eames!
And we want USA Network to sit up and take notice

Haven't we all been watching Goren's tie clip go higher and occasionally go off kilter over the last 10 years? Message boards have dedicated pages and pages to Goren's tie clip and it's placement. And don't we all love to see Alex eating her Skittles to keep her energy up? We even sent Vincent a tie clip and Kathryn some Skittles in the binders we put together last year. We've decided to use Goren's tie clip and Eames' Skittles as symbols of our desire for their return.


So we’re urging you to send
Tie Clips and Skittles to USA Network.
I’m sure there are oodles of abandoned tie clips at thrift stores which can be acquired inexpensively and whether you send a bag of Skittles or just the wrapper or even a picture of Skittles, we think they’ll get the message.

Before you send off your tie clips and Skittles, please take a photo and add it to our Gallery of Tie Clips and Skittles here:  http://photobucket.com/OperationTieClipsAndSkittles
(just follow the Photobucket directions for uploading your photos). Tell us who you are in the description – if you have a blog post where the photo is uploaded, please feel free to add a link to that specific blog post.
When we have a few pictures, we’ll turn the album into a slide show and post it in our sidebar.

Next…. Where do you send your Tie Clips and Skittles?

    Don't let not living in the US stop you! I'm sending at least one tie clip - maybe more! I think Skittles might be hard to find in some countries though.

  13. You can always go on amazon.com and get some skittles shipped. Or other bulk candy stores send them for cheap as well. Same with tie clips.

    Good point! That's what I did with the Fluff - beats shipping it across the border!

  15. I love this. Get ready USA Network. You think they would know by now how much we love Bobby and Alex.

  16. Tremendous job, ladies. I have made a post on my site to help send out the word. Get 'er done!

  17. moro no Brasil e não entendo nada de informática, por isso não faço ideia de como enviar pelo menos uma foto de um clip de gravata. mas espero que outros fãs( e não fãs que queiram apoiar esta campanha )deem o melhor de si.

  18. ei, acabei de mandar um recado para rede EUA no endereço deles.Só não sei se fiz certo e se mandei pro departamento correto. Pra piorar não escrevo nem falo NADA em inglês, mas enviei um recado num inglês horroroso!!! Se mandar outro email em meu idioma natural, perderá força? Falo PORTUGUÊS brasileiro.

  19. Ruby says: I have managed to acquire more tie clips from eBay than I can ever use, so if anyone needs some to send, let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ruby says: So now that LOCI has not been renewed by USA, :( is there anywhere else we can send our clips & Skittles? I still plan to keep sending mine to USA until you guys officially call a halt.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ruby says: OK, I'm officially pissed now. (And not much other than politics pisses me off these days!) I just received back my first letter to Jeff Wachtel, voicing my request for more Goren & Eames. I sent it almost 2 weeks ago and have sent 9 more following that, some little packages costing me almost $2 apiece. It was marked rejected! It wasn't opened, wasn't read, wasn't passed on to whoever might help grant our request (i.e., Dick Wolf), wasn't thrown away so that I'd never know whether anyone received it or not...nothing! Just REJECTED and returned to sender! Guess I'll be receiving the other 9 in the next couple of weeks!

    Am I disappointed? Yes! Am I angry? Yes! Am I warning you not to waste your money? I guess so.

    So...here's what I'm thinking about doing. I took a picture of all the letters I sent. I think I will try to send them to Dick Wolf or someone who will at least look at them and hear our plea. Any ideas how to get them out there? Maybe Facebook? (OK, grump, grump, maybe it's time I actually joined the 21st century!)

    REJECTED? That's just plain rude!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, that's right, that is plain rude!!! Well, just got word about the new person to address too, hopefully it works this time. Will send tomorrow. More GOREN, More EAMES, More LO:CI... Yeah,...
