Welcome to Episode 1 of Swamp Gas! This was kind of an exercise to put a podcast together.
It’s basically me reading a Batman story by Isaac Asimov entitled “Northwestward.” Man, it was harder reading aloud than I thought. Editing the stutters, false starts, swallowed words was a chore. Hopefully I’ll get better as I go along.
I really like this story. Perhaps material for the next Batman blockbuster? This is actually the most boring Batman story I have ever read, but that doesn’t stop it from being pretty great.
Disclaimer: This podcast is merely a hobby and the use of the materials by Mr. Asimov are done with no monetary gain in mind and out of appreciation for his entertaining literary voice. “Northwestward” appears in The Further Adventures of The Batman, edited by Martin H. Greenberg.

Let’s say you find a video on YouTube that features a song you’d like to listen to on a CD, in your iPod, etc. Here’s what you do (this works on both Macs and PCs)…
1. Find the web address (URL) of the YouTube video. It’s usually listed right on the YouTube page you’re watching or just grab it from the browser.
2. If you do a web search for a website that can download YouTube videos, you’ll probably find a bunch of sites, such as: http://keepvid.com/
3. Enter the URL of your YouTube video at the above website, per the website”s instructions.
4. Choose to download the video into a non-Flash format, such as a .mpg file.
5. Open the downloaded video file in Quicktime Pro.
6. Export the video file to an audio file, such as a .wav file. Or just try importing the .mpg video file into iTunes and skip to step 8.
7. Import the new audio file into iTunes.
9. Make sure you have permission to posses this new mp3 audio file.
If you have a pre-amp or other such audio interface, and if you do, you’ve probably figured out this cheat.
1. Insert a cable with two male ends from the headphone jack of your computer into the input jack of your pre-amp.
2. Record the audio using Audacity or a similar audio recording program.
3. Convert to mp3 using iTunes as mentioned above.
