    If you're a John Holmes fan, then you're probably well aware that there is an absolute lack in devoted websites for him. There are numerous pages with a biography about him, most of which are taken from Wikipedia or IMDB, and the same picture of him that's used on the Wadd documentary cover is everywhere. I did come across one fansite some time ago that was Italian I think, but I don't have the address for it anymore unfortunately, but it didn't have much to begin with.

    I collect as much John Holmes stuff as I can onto my computer; movies, video clips, pictures, interviews, biographies, facts, you name it. I have a folder with his name on it that is 10.1gb worth of material scattered over about 1,079 different files and I'm aware that other members here, including Tripod and Flashy, have a collection of Holmes material as well.

    Who else is sick of the lack of websites devoted to such a legendary figure? If anyone is interested in starting a website, let me know and we can discuss and work things out.

    Yeah I've been wanting to put together a John Holmes resource thread that uploaded anything I had as well as link to any other videos/images posted here.

    I think that you have an excellent idea John!! I have a HUGE amount of John Holmes scenes and full vids I keep amassing vids and am nowhere near done with my Holmes collection.

    We would get shut down soooo fast providing linx to movies or scenes featuring Wadd... his estate is still being managed by someone, I have no idea who it would be... it is most likely run by some shady entertainment attorney in Van Nuys.

    Now we could do some educational stuff and maybe some Flash videos? I am not sure about the legality of flash clips, I know that there is some wiggle room, but I imagine that it might be next to impossible to post any clips... what do you think about the whole legal issue? I need to get my database figured out and then maybe we can swap info about our collections to see what we really have. I would like to start a John Holmes MEGA thread, but I am not ready just yet, but soon...

    What do you think John?

    Why not start a John Holmes video blog and post a new vid clip each day?

    You should post some of the movies here or make a blog as CardiffDillon said. I'm always having trouble finding his scenes on sites, it would be nice to have a site to go to get it.

    Nice to get a fast response from you, Tripod! I forget if you were the one who posted those oustanding and rare 60's gay John Holmes clips some time back, but if you were, I want to give you a huge thanks for those! By far the rarest Holmes stuff on the net!

    Legality of hosting John Holmes videos has crossed my mind, but I haven't put enough thought or have done research for it yet, which is partly why I made this thread so we can gather info for that. I imagine flash clips would probably work out for the most part, but like you said, we'd have to be careful of Wadd videos since that's a big name. Also for movie clips, I'd prefer to have both streaming flash clips and downloads for the original file since .flv conversions have terrible digital artifact, but if we don't have the space and bandwidth to do so, we'll just stick with flash. However, do you think it would be legal if we uploaded full movies on a torrent site and just linked them to our fansite? As far as I know, a lot of torrent sites are legal becaues they take place in countries that don't really have laws against them, such as the infamous PirateBay.com of Sweden.

    As far as blogs go, they're nice and all but I'd prefer to put up an actual site because it's a lot more organized that way and with all the information and media we'll have regarding Holmes, we're going to need a very structured system for everything that's documented.

    But yeah I have a lot of ideas and look forward to this if everyone is willing to put the effort into the project. Once we figure out the legal status of clips and movies and how we are to host them, we can decide on what kind of website hosting we're going to need.

    Just wondering, what's the appeal of John Holmes? Is it because he's hung or are you sexually attracted to him or do you really love the 70s? How did you get into JH?

    I think it's a bit of all three (well maybe not so much being sexually attracted). I first got into him back when I was 17. I had seen the movie Boogie Knights before then and it was a classic great movie. When I learned that the movie was loosely based off a real porn star, which I had suspesions of, I came to learn about the real man and I found his life story absolutely fascinating.

    Right off the bat he's an interesting case because he's famous for having a huge dick, but his life story is full of so many ups and downs and cliffhangers that it sounds like a movie. So then I just had to see how big his penis was and I soon found the classic Seka and Holmes Blonde Fire scene. At first I didn't really think much and just sort of brushed it off for awhile until I decided to look into his videos again a couple months later and they just became very appealing to me for some reason. It could be that I noticed we beared a resemblence, but for whatever reason I became hooked from there and started to gather as much I could about him.

    The more I watched and learned about him, the more he appealed to me. He had a lot of personality and, despite if you liked or disliked, he was serious about the acting and I think he was pretty legitimate at it. My penis, while not as big as John's obviously, is extremely similar to his and so another part of his appeal to me is that it feels like I'm him in the sex scenes because I can relate to exactly how his penis works in various situations.

    But yeah, the whole 70's fashion factor of him and the porn industry then is another part of the appeal too :D .

    Oh yeah great person to honor with a fan site. Involved in muder, drugs, robbery, prostitution, and knowingly with aids infected unknown numbers of people in the industry with aids. This man even moved his porn carreer to Europe to do films after he was no longer allowed to continue in the US. Even turned to gay movies to get work. I really love how members in this forum can assault someone character if there gay or bitchy or bossy person, but can then wish to honor someone merely because they have a large penis.

    I think this is the biggest reason you don't see more sites for him. I'm under the impression that his vids are still tightly controlled. He is arguably the most popular male pornstar in the world, afterall...

    I'm sure I read somewhere where Holmes had a son. I'm wondering if he inherited any of his dad's physical attributes? :confused:

    Maybe when he was young, fit, sober and could still get it up...everything after that is hardly worth making a fansite for.
