A Farmhouse Out a Ways

For Valentine’s Day, the most wistful song I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard a lot of songs).

If you can get through this dry-eyed, you’re a harder-hearted cat than me. The second verse might be the most beautiful words I’ve ever heard.

Enjoy.  Valentine’s is no time for hard-hearted cats.


Blast From Christmas Past: 12/24/05 RanchoCast


Back in the day, I used to do the RanchoCasts, podcasts featuring me talking about various tech related topics and playing good music.  On Christmas Eve 2005, I did one featuring Christmas songs.

Here, for musical and nostalgia purposes, is that RanchoCast from 12/24/05.

It consists of nine mostly off the beaten path Christmas songs.


Happy Holidays


Christmas weekend is here, and it’s finally starting to feel like Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Newsome family.  Here’s a video holiday greeting I made last year, with the best Christmas rock and roll song ever.

Punchbowl Full of Joy – Sonny Columbus and the Del Fuegos.

Memorial Day

On the Intrepid

Wishing You a Punch Bowl Full of Joy

Here’s a little audio-video holiday card from your friends at Newsome.Org.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is the hard to find Punch Bowl Full of Joy, by Sonny Columbus, with help from The Del Fuegos.  Likewise, one of my favorite holiday cartoons is Snow Foolin’, a 1949 cartoon, now in the public domain.

Those two plus a little iMovie editing equals our digital holiday card for 2011.


Happy Independence Day!
