http://www.coattails.org was founded in 2006 by artist Julian C. Duron as an outlet for sharing select music videos, titled Mash TV, along with channels for editorial expression and opinion "news". The site was originally created as an internet art installation with visual based navigation utilizing pictorial animations as a means of exploring each "channel". The word Mash is thrown around by visual culture enthusiasts as a term which describes the collecting of media from a variety of subcultures or styles. This site is intended to appeal to the visual community and offer an entertaining outlet for creative expression. The format is ever changing and updated weekly with new material displayed in each featured channel listed below. Coattails.org receives between 5000-7500 visits per week, which isn't that many, but we appreciate the attention received from respectable publications such as The Stranger, The Fader, and Fecal Face. Thanks for visiting today.

NEWS - All of the latest from the greatest news source in America.

MASH TV - Dedicated to our love of music videos as a medium from every genre replacing the necessity for MTV (seeing that they haven't played a music video since the mid 90's).

MASH RADIO - A collection of mix tapes created by our staff and friends.

 

STATEMENT:

At coattails.org we care about shit, but we're way too busy for you to bother us with your stupid questions, concerns, and whatever other bullshit you want to tell us about. You could reach us by email at coattailsnyc@gmail.com, or on the phone by dialing 718.443.3524, but we probably won't answer your emails or return your phone calls because we're probably eating some chicken. Thanks for visiting the website today. Ok, goodbye.
