Mike Judge, creator of Beavis and Butt-head and writer-director of Office Space, stopped by Unfair Park HQ two weeks ago to talk about that 1999 film's more-or-less follow-up Extract, which opened yesterday. (Our review is here.) Before our chat in my office, Patrick Michels presented the former Anson Funderburgh bassist with a copy of this photo taken at the Office Space 10th anniversary shindig in Austin back in February. That's Judge's daughter just over Gary Cole's shoulder, which is but one reason why Judge kept the picture next to him during our wide-ranging chat.
