Use Vixy.net to convert YouTube Videos to MP3

One of the best things about YouTube are how works of art — which otherwise would languish on their creator’s computer or never be made at all — become viral on the net. Rx’s “Freedom 101” (previously featured here and by Mountainrunner, Sean, and ZenPundit), for instance, is an amazing mashup of ideology, freedom, and principle. However, the artist himself is busy running for President) and hasn’t provided an mp3 on his web site. So how to listen to it on my iPod Mini 8GB?

Answer: vixy.net.

Vixy is also an open source project that converts youtube’s flac format to standard ones. Until google implements a “Save As” feature for YouTube, vixy’s website offers a free, fast translator supported by ad-revenue. I recommend it.

I also tried vixy on LOST breakbeat and Reggae Soviet Anthem. Both worked fine. Thanks vixy!

MLK, Reagan, Kennedy Music Video: Rx’s "Freedom 101"

Some things just keep getting better and better. The musician Rx is one of ’em.

His mashup of the Clintons and George Bush, Happy Christmas & A Whole Lot of Love, is a classic. His music video of the President singing Sunday, Bloody Sunday is clever. But nothing he has done compares to his new music video: Freedom 101.


“My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrims’ pride, from every mountain side, let freedom ring.”

“If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth… We’re at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind since his long climb from the swamp to the stars.”

“In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger.”

Now all Rx has to do is link to the MP3 version, and I’m good to go!

Happy Christmas & A Whole Lot of Love, sung by President Bush and the Clintons

This is indescribably good. Even better than Curzon’s find. Listen to the song and the album.

Thank you all very much
Welcome to the Christmas Pageant of Peace
Each year we gather here
to celebrate the season of hope and joy
And to remember the story of one humble life
That lifted the sites of humanity

Santa thanks for coming
Glad you made it
I know you got a lot of commitments this time of year
I appreciate all our entertainers
Thanks for being here
It’s been a fantastic evening

Christmas is a time to rejoice
and to give thanks for the blessings of the season
We also remember that we have a responsibility
to help those in need

What to do?
To the Batmobile!

Turn on the lights
And would you help turn on these lights as well
By counting down
5… 4… 3… 2… 1…

Christmas is coming
And it’s taken a long time
We got a chance to get some big things done.

I got a message from God
Yeah
A vision of love
It’s God’s gift to the world
I got a whole lot of love

Check

I got a whole lot of love
I got a whole lot of love

X-Christmas is coming
Peace to the world
I’m on a mission from God
I got a whole lot of love

At this hour
the world is witnessing
terrible suffering and horrible crimes
in the Darfur region of Sudan
Crimes my government has concluded are genocide
The human cost is beyond calculation
I call on the government of Sudan
to honor the ceasefire it signed
and to help prevent further bloodshed
I call upon Congress:
More troops are need
to protect the innocent.
We need to intervene now,
before it’s too late.
In the long run,
the tragedy in western Sudan
requires a settlement
between the government and the rebels.
All sides must control their forces
end the killing
and negotiate the peace
of a suffering land.

Christmas is coming
and it’s taken a long time
We got a chance to get some big things done.

We can do it
Red line
Our plan is working.
In other words,
what I’m telling you is
technology is going to help us
achieve the objective,
Something no President or Congress has been able to do
We’re strongly committed to peace
for all the peoples of Sudan

That’s the true spirit of America
The love
This is the road to paradise.

I still can’t figure out
why it’s a good thing for us to be at war with Iraq
And have all these middle class people
over there sacrificing
Surely there’s some way we can find
in this new moment of hope
Peace in the Middle East
Peace in the Middle East
Peace in the Middle East
Peace in the Middle East

As we approach Christmas in this time of war
We pray for freedom and justice and peace on earth

Wet set our faith in human love
And in God’s care for us
and all men’s everywhere

We ask for God to watch over
our men and women in uniform
who are serving overseas.
Their families miss them,
hold a seat open for them,
and pray for their safe return.

Christmas is coming
And it’s taken a long time
We got a chance to get some big things done

I got a message from God
Yeah
A vision of love
It’s God’s gift to the world.
I got a whole lot of love.
I got a whole lot of love.
I got a whole lot of love.

X-Christmas is coming
Peace to the world
I’m on a mission from God
I got a whole lot of love.

The song (Happy RxMas & a Whole Lotta Love):

George W. Bush: “At this hour

in the Darfur region of Sudan
Crimes my government has concluded are genocide

I call on the government of Sudan

And yes, they are related.
