The Askimet WordPress plugin rocks!

Who else wants me to have extra hard wood while I gamble online, search for mortgage and insurance quotes and view animated sheep porn on my mobile phone? I love you spammers!

Spam MySpace music player with artist choice Spam

January 30th, 2007

Many more music widgets for MySpace can be found on Customizing MySpace. Widgets, layouts, codes and more

I mistakenly posted based on some clever spam.

I would like to thank the readers for pointing this out.

You guys are what keeps this real!

Pushthings.com gives you easy access to the MySpace music player and a bunch of music from popular artists MySpace profiles. Simply copy and paste the artists MySpace URI into the field and then press the generate button.

Grab your code and drop it into your profile editor. You can even put it on to a blog if you want! Notice it here playing some Tesla.

There are some annoying ads on the Pushthings page. But thats to be expected. However if you don’t like the link/banner that Pushthings seems to add to your page, you need to edit the code before you paste it into your profile.

Delete this from the code

<a href="http://www.seekcodes.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.seekcodes.com/support.gif" alt="Myspace Layouts" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top: 0px;" border="0" width="150" height="150"></a>
After that you should be golden!

Unfortunately the extra code you see at the bottom has to do with the posting format. It will disappear when you put it into your profile.
