Gooey, Snorglicious, Fuzzy Wuzzy Lurve Bomb

Tripped out animated “Love is All” sequence from the vastly underrated rock opera, The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper’s Feast. (Arguably Ronnie James Dio’s finest moment.)

Yeah, yeah… we know. Whether you choose to call it Commercially Dictated Affection Day, Lupercalia, or Just Another Epic Lonely Fart-Sucking Excuse For a Personal Pity Party, Valentine’s Day can be full of fail. We’ve all done our share of hatin’ on it. But hey, know what? It really is a gorgeous world out there, and as the Troggs once said, Love is All Around.

Coilhouse Magazine & Blog feels a little bashful asking you this. Um. Don’t feel obligated or anything, but… will you be our Valentine? We think you’re pretty swell. It’s okay, you don’t have to decide right away.*

But tell us, who do you love?

Felted “Love is a Battlefield” Hand Grenade from NifNaks.

*Think it over! Who’s it gonna hurt… where ya goin’?

    I love the Coilhouse family. I’m sending you some love rays from Vancouver Island like a unicorn shooting cupcakes out of it’s eyes…

    Ah! Also! Feb 14th is the whelping day of dear Suzanne Wurzeltod! Extra lurve bombs for her. And a wobbly squirrel:

    Awww. I’m happy to be yur Valentine, Coilhouse. Y’all are all kinds of awesome.

    Yeah, I’ve done my fair share of ranty hating on V-Day in the past as well. But I’ve come to terms with it now. It’s good to stop and remember that there are a lot of people in this world — families both born to and chosen — that I love very deeply.

  5. Ben Morris Says:

    I love this post. I love Grover. I love Brak. I love referring to Valentine’s day as Horny Werewolf Day (thank you Warren Ellis).

    I especially love Coilhouse.

  6. Sofia Falkenhem Says:

    Oh, Coilhouse, you are the best Valentine one could wish for.

    I might never write comments, but at least I am sending you a card:

    I’m flattered guys, really. But, well, I’m kinda seeing another blog right now, and it is getting kinda serious…

    …ah, screw them. You get me, in ways no other blog ever could. When we are together, it feels less like a Coilhouse, and more like a Coilhome.

    I love ‘Love is all’ at the Butterfly Ball. When I was a child they used to play video clips as filler between programs instead of chunks of ads. On ABC/Channel 2 in Australia, in the afternoons after school ‘Love is all’ was often used for that filler.

    I remember being both fascinated and slightly scared of it. I think it was the cricket waiter getting glurped by the big ugly toad, and the frog being turned into a weird, multi-headed plant that did it. However, how often do you see a snail and butterfly dance in perfect unison? ;)

    Ah! V-day! My plans are to cuddle up and finish reading Death by Black Hole by Neil DeGrasse Tyson. It’s so reassuring to know my astrophysical relationship with the universe will end cold, dark and distant- but that’s love, that it is. For the ladies of Coilhouse, here are 3 hand crafted construction paper hearts doused with glitter, Elmer’s glue, aggregation pheromones, and Drakkar. Won’t you be mine…or at least return my calls? That Drakkar can get mighty expensive! :)

    Thanks for Brak! He made my day!

    This seems vaguely apropos, somehow:

  13. Jon Munger Says:

    Daaaym, coilhouse, you know you my number one baby. Lemme just lay it on down for y’all.

  14. Thews Says:

    happy valentines, have a triforce of love
    ♥  ♥

  15. choklit Says:

    Spent my day-after-Valentine’s cuddled up with hot, hot Issue #2. Coilhouse, you’re definitely my Valentine.

    Although I also love my man an awful lot…

  16. fortheloveofthestars Says:

    Since Thursday, Buffalo has pretty much turned into crazy nightmare-plane crash-and beheading-land, so my Valentine’s was spent curled up with friends in our living room just “coping,” so I missed this post. Sure I’ll be your Valentine, albeit belated.

    As for who I love? You guys, my friends, my mom and dad and these lovely fellows:



  17. Jessica Says:

    Belated valentine love to this beautiful bevy of brilliant pervs!

  18. Mer Says:

    Jessica, you cheeky minx! xoxox

    Have to admit, I have always been rather interested in the whole pheramone industry. It’s very entertaining, since we really are beasts underneath all the levels of thinking and deduction. I could unquestionably regard it being a two, since the crude attraction moves work amazingly well to appeal to the other sex.
