True Blood: Intercourse with a Vampire

In the aftermath of the senseless murder last week of one of the main characters on HBO's True Blood, the music this week was awfully soft and tender. When faced with death, folks mourn with food... lots and lots of food. They also, I hear, like to have sex -- sad, meloncholy sex.

Grandma Adele's death inspires a bit of both. Actually a lot of the former, not as much the latter, the symbolic pecan pie notwithstanding. Which leads us to the real headline here, which is that our heroine Sookie Stackhouse is a virgin no more, giving it up to Bill the vampire all done to Cat Power's "Half Of You." And, in the process, actress Anna Paquin also had her cherry popped, so to speak, appearing topless for the first time. Maybe that will HBO subscribers from leaving.
