Montague, How do we embed here now, now that YouTube "Long Link" option isnt there anymore ?


Title: Re: Forever Hardcore - ECW Documentary:
Post by: Montague on January 05, 2013, 04:19:53 PM
I'm not quite sure what the "long link" function is/was, how it worked, or if I ever used it.
I know when posting from my tablet, I have difficulty embedding here due to a different code that accompanies the videos - it usually starts with an "m."
Is that the long link?

Anyway, the only way it works for me is to use my laptop, accessing Internet Explorer.

I'm not sure if that is the answer you were looking for. You can always post a question on the Comments Board. Ron answers in many threads there, and he's also got a tech-support guy who sometimes chimes in on these types of matters.

LOL..that "m" is the link for mobile phone viewing.

Ha-ha...
I'm not up on all of this mobile/app stuff. I bought my first tablet in July and still don't know or understand everything it does. My cousin's six year-old teaches me things about iPad, then looks at me like I'm a dumb-shit.
 ;D

"Pure Dynamite" was my first wrestling autobiography, and remains one of my favorites.

Who wrote the Bemoit book?

mathew randazzo V, he's a true crime writer and organized crime and political corruption expert.

Wait, he didn't like "In the Pit with Piper," that was written in 53% kayfabe and 47% hyperbole?

I liked Piper the best when he transitioned from heel to face in the Fed over '86/'87, building up his big program with Adonis. In my opinion, he never matched that.

I believe that Pipes and Terry Funk are filming a "wrestler-zombie" movie in Western PA this week, along with some local indy guys.

Perhaps. I think my buddy told me that his friend who is part of the filming works in either FNW and/or IWC, both of which I believe run in the southwestern part of the state.
I'm a bit out of the loop, though.

A funny bit is that the producers wanted Shane Douglas to work on set, too, but he allegedly couldn't get off of work. I wonder what Flair would have to say about that. Then again, he probably doesn't know since he wasn't invited. ;D

I think there may also be a little bit of tension between Shane and Funk, leftover from when Shane kayfabe spat on the NWA belt at the re-christening of ECW as Extreme Championship Wrestling.

I think that gave Terry a red ass for real.
