BTC: “Waking up to say…”


Yeah, admittedly, we’re a little late to the party re: this amazeballs Beauty and the Beast parody by Micah McCain. But it’s just too good NOT to post as a BTC, and surely, not all of you have experienced the spiffiness yet. Bonjour!

BTC (Part II): “Everybody Rock Your [MMD] Body!”

The most ADORKABLE MikuMikuDance video you’ll see all day.

via Jamais Cascio, thanks!

(Aaaaand the runner up.)

BTC: Illan Rivière

This elegant young man’s name is Illan Rivière.

Already an accomplished fusion belly dancer, Illan, who lives in France, is only eighteen years old. Definitely one to watch.

BTC: Gunther von Häagen-Dazs

From the profoundly sick ‘n’ twisted punsters innovative educators behind Art of Bleeding comes this morning’s “anatomy lesson” in the form of a extended satirical mashup that riffs off the name of Body Worlds creator Gunter von Haagens and the moniker of a certain time-honored, faux-Scandinavian brand of ice cream.

This video is not safe for work, nor the squeamish, nor the lactose intolerant. TASTE DEATH.

Thanks, as ever, for keepin’ it real strange, Al.

Cyber Industrial Dance Tutorial: The Definitive Edition

For those of who who have always wondered how to master this arcane dance art, a helpful tutorial is included above.

For further cheering-up, see below. It’s like watching a dozen adorable Tamagothis hatch and grow in full-color, right before your very eyes:


The Black & White & Red All Over Ball was a smashing success. Big, big love to everyone who participated. It was a night to remember for a very, very long time.

Right now, the entire core Coilhouse crew who put the bash together (in three weeks?! really?! what the fuck were we thinking?!!) is reeling with gratitude and triumphant joy and also completely exhausted and derped out. Somehow, this seems like the perfect theme song for us:

Please stand by for more full-fledged updates (photo booth pics, auction info, Issue 06 status, more) later in the week, once our brains go back to fulfilling higher functions, instead of just doing this on endless repeat. Meantime, if you’d like a nice encapsulation of the party, please read Logan Riley’s lovely blog post about the Ball. (He nailed it. Thank you, Logan.)

And really, truly, thank you again to everyone who helped us pull that thing off, from the attendees to the performers to the organizers to the DJs to the donors to the bidders to the bouncer to the bartenders to the stage manager to the lenders-of-couches and far, far beyond. We are so very, very grateful to you all.

More to come. So much more.

BTC: Panda Dance

Some weeks, thumb you just gotta throw your hands up in the air, cry “Tempus FUGGIT”, and do the Panda Dance.

Song by Jonathan Mann.

BTC: Vintage Canine Vaudeville

Not everyone loves cats as much as this lady. Some of our readers are dog people. More specifically, some our readers are morally bankrupt sadists who like to watch dogs dressed up like people mince around on their hind legs, pretending to do people things.

Coilhouse dedicates the following inexplicable thirty seconds to them:

Had enough, sickos? Didn’t think so. So here are some more choice cuts from the infamous Dogville Comedies, produced and filmed in the early 1930s:

Bad Lip-Reader’s Black Eyed Peas, Ludacris/BeeGees and Taylor Swift piss-takes are sidesplitting as well.
