Scott,
All you need to do is look for the code for whatever you want on the YouTube page itself.
You want the "Embed" code.

Myspace is all about HTML.
Just copy & paste code into whatever Myspace box you want.

Goodness me!  What a discussion.  
I am pretty anti-MySpace, but I just naturally dislike fads.  I must say that Ash made a fine product here.  Good job, man.  

I can't promise I'll do anyting towards the project, but I think its a worthy effort.  I do prefer our little forum home here.

Thanks to many of you that decided to check out our Myspace page.
When I introduced our page here on this forum, I knew I'd have to walk through a s**tstorm and it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

I do not consider Myspace to be a fad.
There's just too many people who use it and there's too many ways for people to customize their pages for it to be a short-lived fad.
I think it will be around for quite a while.
Sure, it may eventually wane in popularity, but I think it will stick around.

My only regret was that so many of you judged it all before you actually tried it.  (and some of you still haven't tried it)

Dean was asking why he should check it out and wanted additional reasons to help convince him.
Dean. I'm afraid that the only way you can truly see what Myspace is all about is to seriously dive into it and see for yourself.
Dean was also concerned about blogs. (he has stated that he already has one & that was his primary concern)
To tell you the truth, I rarely read the blogs on Myspace.  I do read a few, but not many.
For me, it's always been about the music, friends, videos and the amusing comments.

And thanks to Loyal1 & Skaboi for obtaining Andrew's permission.
I was going to do the same but they beat me to it!
I kept wondering to myself if Andrew would get really p**sed off that we created that Myspace page using his website name without his explicit permission.
After all, it was I who decided to rename it, "The Official Badmovies.org Myspace Page" and I did that without asking permission.
I just assumed that since I'd been a regular here for so long, he wouldn't mind.
Thank you Andrew for approving it!

Remember the reaction I got a couple of years ago when this board went down for about a week?  
I created my own temporary message board for us regulars to use until this site came back up?
The resulting backlash against me was furious!
I was accused of trying to steal traffic away and subvert everything that Andrew has created here...which was never my intention.
(I tried searching for that thread but couldn't find it)

When I wrote this particular thread, I knew that I would get resistance...and I most definitely did.
Why do you think I wrote that Official Announcement post?
My intention was never to steal this site's thunder.  Far from it.
Many of you attacked Myspace & I for all the wrong reasons.

Look, I'm a devoted fan of Badmovies.org.
Only a tiny handful of us have remained totally faithful to this site for years & years and I happen to be one of them. (I've been here almost 7 years)
I'd call that serious devotion!
So when you question my motives, I take offense to it.  

I've already sent ulthar an apology via the Private Message feature.
I was kind of hard on him...but at the time I felt he deserved it.  
Maybe we we were both in crappy moods that day (I was) and just butted heads like a couple of mountain goats...it happens!

You know, we're all friends here.
No matter what I say or do, always remember that I do it with good intentions.

Hey Ash,
 Thats a goodly post.  We are all al friends here and you did do a nice job on the page.  Those that don't want it don't have to visit.  I'm indifferent to most web things, but you never know.  I never was a discussion board person either.
We'll make a private bet about the longetivity/faddishness of MySpace and I'll say no more.  See you in a few years on the subject.

Ozzymandias speaks: I doubt it can be found on Myspace, but I have a song by the Diamonds called "Batman, Wolfman, Frankenstein or Dracula." It is about a guy who finds out he can "get lucky" taking his dates to scary movies.

Speaking of the Diamonds, if I could find a way to do it, I'd load on to Youtube a video (on VHS) I have of Boris Karloff and Art Carney singing "Little Darlin" on the Dinah Shore Chevy Show. Rumor has it that it inspired Bobby Pickett's Monster Mash.

Ozzy,
I've tried thinking of songs to use and I keep drawing a blank.
That Rob Zombie song was the only thing that I could think of that somewhat gels with the whole idea of this website.

By all means, if you find something, send me a message through Myspace and I'll put it on.
The Badmovies.org Myspace page will be seeing some major changes soon.
So far, it's pretty good but it feels like it's lacking something.
I aim to correct that.

I've also put up a couple of really bad short videos on the site.
Have you watched them yet?
Venom of the Spider is so bad it's good!
And if you find any other bad/good videos on Youtube or another site, please let me know.
I'm always looking for new material to put on it.

You'll also notice that I've brought some really interesting friends to it such as Evil Dead: The Musical, Spooky Empire Inc. and Troma.

I even sent an invite to Mr. Lobo and he accepted!

Ozzymandias speaks: That Rob Zombie song is fine. I'll try to make an MP3 of the Diamonds song. It's hokey 50s stuff but it fits us.

I find it's best to watch the videos at work. My home computer takes a while to load. If you go to my page you will find Lawrence Welk dancing with an old lady to Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray."

Yes, It's just you.




Sorry, I have nothing particularly insightful or helpful to add to any Myspace debate here, othere than to say NO, it is not just Ulthar.  I also hate sites that start up with music when first loaded.  That is why my speakers are off, and stay off unless I'm specifically using them for something.  I love music, and have an incredibly diverse collection, and could in no way be accused of narrow-mindedness in my musical taste, but when I'm in the mood for new music I'll actively seek it out - I don't like to have it forced upon me.


Just in case anyone cares.

Update...

The Badmovies.org Myspace page is growing daily.
I usually get at least 1-3 new friend requests per day and regular friends are always dropping by to add comments.

I try to keep it updated on a regular basis by adding new videos and spotlighting reviews here.

Trying to find that perfect balance has been somewhat difficult when maintaining the page and it's content.
Some people want hardcore stuff while others like the more subdued approach.
Some people want horror B-movies while others like the Godzilla stuff.
It can be a tightrope sometimes but I just try to walk the line and find that middle ground.
The page isn't the greatest...but it doesn't suck either.
It's always changing and I guess I'm always looking for ways to make it totally kickass.

For those of you who haven't been there yet, definitely check it out.
Here's the URL:
http://www.myspace.com/badmoviesorgmember

And yes, music plays when you go to the page.
I think pages without music are boring.
