    It seems as though you need to buy (or sneakily flip through) a hard copy of Seventeen in order to get the code to unlock those downloads. I don’t want people to get all excited about a free Julianne Hough download (coughcough) and then have their hopes shattered.

    Sam: Sylvia Plath once worked with and wrote for Seventeen.

    The Maranda Lambert code is “peppermint”, and I didn’t have to sign up for anything to get it.

    Stormy: Not being in the demographic, I’m not a huge Seventeen reader. But would Sylvia Plath have uncovered the fact that Jennifer Nettles likes chunky jewelry on stage and Miranda Lambert rocks out to Rhianna? I think not.

    Speaking of Steve Earle, on Saturday Night I heard LA’s eclectic electro-acoustic practitioner David Lindley perform a solo acoustic version of “Copperhead Road” while playing a Turkish “Saz” (the grandfather of the Greek Bouzouki). This was soon followed by his original composition “Meth Lab Boyfriend” based on a true story of a musician friend of his who spent too much time on the road and came home to find his wife had a new boyfriend with a meth lab in the garage. Trippy stuff……

    Its nice to see Pop Stoneman getting some recognition these days. Better late than never!

    Stoneman Family Alert: On February 21 the remaining Stoneman daughters will be back hosting the E.T. Record Shop Midnite Jamboree as part of a “CD Release Celebration”. Roni Stoneman is a loose cannon cut-up who is not to be missed.

    The author of the new unauthorized Keith Urban biography Jeff Apter is interviewed by John Nutting on this week’s archived addition of Saturday Night Country. This will only be available through Friday as the archive is updated each Saturday with a new program:

    Note: The Keith Urban section begins at the 7:00 minute mark when Johnno plays one of Keith’s first Aussie singles he got to record for winning the Toyota Starmaker talent Quest.

    Yeah I’m not sure what’s worse, linking to myspace or linking to Seventeen magazine. Maybe we should research the average age of 9513 readers and see that we’re all too old for both! :P

    Nobody has anything to say about a certain someone performing on SNL this weekend?

    Marc, Myspace is a great way to discover new music, no matter what age one is.

    Why do you think Sylvia Plath killed herself?

    Stormy, Plath worked for Mademoiselle, not Seventeen.

    I’m just saying 17 isn’t the pit of suck that, say, Cosmo Girl is.

    Mike K.: Ashley Simpson already set that bar so low it no longer matters.

    Yeah, but Mademoiselle was downright highbrow. Well, not highborow, but high tone/upscale, at least in its aspirations. I’m not sure that there’s anything like a current equivalent. Not that it takes away from your point.
