I watch the show Hung on HBO as it keeps my attention for the half hour, makes me laugh from time to time and obviously there’s naked women here and there, I mean the show is about a male prostitute.
I don’t usually write about TV shows or pop culture but the Season 2 finale was capped in the ending credits by a song I had swore I heard before live. Back in June I had gone to the Trocadero to see a Blitzen Trapper on a whim after listening to a couple of their songs on Lala.com before Apple bought and killed it. As it turned out The Moondoggies opened up for Blitzen Trapper and I happened to like them a whole lot better.
So now I was trying to connect the dots all last night on where I had heard the song on the ending credits and did a little research. It turns out that it was a band called Dawes and they have a bunch of tour dates with the Moondoggies coming up. I am about 90% sure that The Moondoggies performed the song, possibly with the lead singer of Dawes that night. Or maybe I was just really stoned and Dawes was actually there and performed and didn’t receive any billing. Who knows, all I know is I liked the song and I heard it live before I heard it on Hung.
Pretty cool videos from Dawes. Check out all 3 bands.

So I didn’t actually see Anne Heche on Letterman when she bashed her ex-husband but I think it’s kind of funny. As you’ll see in the video, she berates her ex-husband for essentially not doing anything with his life or being a Soccer coach or something. Apparently he still wants her to hang out together with him and or their child which I see as a mildly admirable thing to do but then again I wasn’t in the relationship and I have no idea what went on there.
I’m a little on the fence about Anne Heche, she was OK in a couple movies, then she started eating Ellen Degeneres’ box for awhile, then she went from vagitarian back to a hearty meat diet as evidenced by her marriage to the guy she’s talking about. I’m going to guess she was on Letterman to promote Hung which is probably my favorite show of the summer and hopefully keeps going.
Anyway, I don’t know who would go on national TV to say ill of the father of their child but apparently Anne had no problem doing it. At the end of the video Letterman asks Anne what her ex-husband does and Heche replies something to the effect of going to the mailbox and open up checks that she sends him.
I always think it’s rather amusing when women have to pony up the palimony (the opposite of alimony). A successful woman having to send the ex-husband checks instead of the of the husband having to send the ex-wife checks. Women are always so gung ho about “getting half” and getting “their money” that it seems ironic when it works the other way.
So Anne Heche plays a bitch ex-wife in the HBO series Hung and it seems she may be a bitch in real life as well but I think the moral of this story is to watch Thomas Jane as a gigolo and some brief female nudity during sex scenes.
