Mike Judge says 'Beavis and Butt-Head' is not based on you
Tidbits from today's Mike Judge press tour for Extract (I'm writing about it for the San Antonio Express-News and, yes, that's my crappy photo of him):
+ Now that's he's on Facebook, all of his high school pals are convinced they're the inspiration for Baavis and/or Butt-Head. They're not.
+ The animated series The Goode Family is as good as dead, and he didn't have much to do with it besides providing a voice.
+ The closed Austin factory for Adam's Extract (it's now based in Gonzales) is indeed an inspiration for the plant in Extract, particularly its look. Judge was interested to hear how my crappy old pickup broke down there in the early '80s thus leading me to walk into the Adam's office seeking help! It stank in there.
