'Goode' Stuff from Mike Judge
Mike Judge's new animated comedy 'The Goode Family' premieres tonight
DAILY Screens  May 27, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...Hank Hill and company may be taking their final bow in the fall, but no worries: Mike Judge has a new animated clan to cozy up to. The Goode Family finds the fun in one family's attempts to follow a righteous ecological path ("WWAGD?" worries their liberal mom, as in What Would Al Gore Do?)..."

Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation 2008
Another compilation of old and new animated spectacles guaranteed to rot your eyeballs.
Film Review  February 8, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...That observation is unlikely to register with fans of mainstream animation, nor is it likely to evoke melancholy in PETA members or those among us tragically devoid of necks. But the fact remains that the California-based duo of Craig "Spike" Decker and the late Mike Gribble aided or abetted the careers of everyone from King of the Austin Hill Mike Judge (his 1992 short "Frog Baseball" earned him no ASPCA fans but won the hearts and minds of inner-10-year-olds everywhere) to Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken, whose inexplicably hilarious "No Neck Joe" was an S&M staple for the better part of the last decade..."

Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation 2005
Spike & Mike has always been a hit-or-miss program, and this year is no different, with a few genuinely brilliant pieces surrounded by examples of puerile fun and juvenile humor.
Film Review  January 28, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Has it really been 15 years since Craig "Spike" Decker and the late Mike Gribble initiated this surprisingly durable cavalcade of objectionable animations and crass anti-commercialism? It has, but what’s most remarkable about their annual parade of gag-reflex-inducing animations isn’t that it’s still around, but that it’s maintained a stubborn sort of unflappable continuity, marked by occasional stumbles into the realm of genius. In the past, Spike & Mike has played host to, or discovered, the work of Beavis and Butt-head’s Mike Judge, The Powerpuff Girls’ Craig McCracken (whose "No Neck Joe" is an inexplicable perennial audience favorite, again), Bill Plympton, and the semilegendary Don Hertzfeldt, who’s currently debuting his epic new short at Sundance..."

Here Comes the Judge
Beavis and Butt-head's Hollywood Score
Screens Story  December 20, 1996, by Marc Savlov
"...Looking back, it's a wonder that Austinite Mike Judge's stuttering, onanistically inclined whackmasters Beavis and Butt-head ended up on the air at all. This pair of animated 14-year-old dimbulbs were hardly the fare that corporate mega-hitter MTV seemed to be seeking, but after getting their hands on Judge's nascent work in the groundbreaking Frog Baseball short (in 1992), the die was cast...."

Uproar Over Judge's Dismissal at SOAH

"Sick'-Figure Drawings: Spike & Mike's 2002 Fest
Spike & Mike are back with an even dirtier and more deviant show than ever before.
Screens Story  January 18, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...Lest you think this sort of low-brow comedics went out with Cheech and Tommy's film careers, bear in mind that the Sick and Twisted fest (technically a bastard progeny to the duo's original, less reprehensible Classic Festival of Animation) has in the past "broken" (in the good way) such animators as Austin's own Mike Judge, the aforementioned Plympton and Hertzfeldt, and fave Jim Lujan...."

Sex, lies, and politics in the 331st District Court
News Story  March 1, 2018, by Nina Hernandez and Chase Hoffberger
"...Incumbent Judge David Crain and indigent defense attorney Chantal Eldridge are both Democrats, though they are far apart in their status within the Travis County party establishment, and in their opinions of the responsibilities of a felony judge. Eldridge has spent her campaign arguing for a heightened focus on mental health dockets in the felony court, has lobbied for indigent rights, and attacked Crain for resting on his laurels after 35 years of experience on three benches, an accusation Crain rejects..."

Judge on Pregnancy 'Clinics': Signage Ordinance 'Vague'

"...In late June, a federal judge struck down an Austin ordinance that would require unlicensed "Crisis Pregnancy Centers" – religious facilities that discourage abortion – to post signage indicating that they do not provide medical services. "It's unfortunate, but we are compelled to respect and comply with Judge [Lee] Yeakel's ruling," City Council Member and ordinance co-sponsor Mike Martinez told the Chronicle..."

The Challenge of Judge Dietz
School finance decision puts responsibility where it's always been - on all of us
News Column  September 24, 2004, by Michael King
"...Declaring "It's the right thing to do," state District Judge John Dietz last week found the current Texas public school finance system unconstitutional. His rulings were brief and straightforward, finding that the current system both fails to provide an "adequate suitable education" and has also become an unconstitutional state property tax, because so many districts are effectively required to tax at the maximum $1.50 rate in order to meet constitutional, state, and federal requirements – and yet still lack sufficient resources to fulfill those obligations...."

"...After 12 years, King of the Hill is nearing its final episode, but Mike Judge fans can find an easygoing and sublimely Hank Hill-esque denouement via the Austin filmmaker's new theatrical release, Extract. Judge initially wrote the script – which parallels and expands on many of the working-class themes of King of the Hill – in the wake of 1999's now-legendary Office Space, then set it aside to work on 2006's cultural crystal ball Idiocracy..."

Film Review  September 5, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...There’s a new animation show making the rounds, and it’s such a delight it makes you wonder why there aren’t more compilation programs like this circulating. Conveniently enough, it’s called The Animation Show, and it’s the brainchild of Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt and Austin resident Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-head) – two of America’s smartest contemporary cartoon inkslingers..."

Written by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and helmed by Wolf Creek’s Greg McLean, The Belko Experiment is a twisted, surreal, and extremely violent “What if?” answer to Mike Judge’s forever classic Office Space..."

Office Spaced in Austin
Mike Judge and cast celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the release of Office Space
DAILY Screens  February 11, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Here's a twist on the old Zen brain-teaser: When a piece of office equipment falls in the city does it make a sound? The answer is a resounding yes if it it occurs in front of the Paramount Theatre just prior to the 10-year anniversary celebration of the release of Office Space, Mike Judge's hilarious send-up of cubicle culture. I couldn't see what was happening through the multi-ringed throng of people surrounding the sidewalk sacrifice, but the sound of smashing metal and punctured plastic was unmistakable..."

Point Austin: The Campaigns Continue
Catching up with mayor and county judge wannabes
News Column  September 18, 2014, by Michael King
"...Austin Interfaith caught up with the mayoral and county judge races on Tuesday night, a good occasion for Point Austin to do the same. Although AI is an admirable organization, I've mostly bypassed its "Account­ability Sessions," as they traditionally consist of putting the candidates on a simple "Yes/No" record for supporting or opposing AI "issues" – akin to the sort of questions that run like this week's "Will you work with us to keep home ownership affordable ...?" Candidates who answer "No" to such questions probably need to find another line of work...."
