There was a strong Grateful Dead vibe at Saint Rocke (www.saintrocke.com) in Hermosa Beach on October 25, 2010. Moonalice (www.moonalice.com) the first band on stage, is a group with obvious love and respect for the Dead. The second band, 7 Walkers (http://7walkers.com) has a real Dead connection with founding drummer, Bill Kreutzmann, putting together this new group with Papa Mali, George Porter, Jr., and Matt Hubbard.

So on a list of one to one million of my favorite movies and television shows, “Beavis and Butt-Head” would probably be solidly at the very bottom. And considering that it’s the animated MTV show that made Mike Judge famous, I am always slightly afraid of anything that springs from his fertile mind. He’s the creator of the long-running Fox cartoon “King of the Hill,” too. Eh. But when it comes to live-action films, it seems Judge knows just how to tickle my funnybone. First with “Office Space” and now with “Extract,” his latest film comedy, the guy just cracks me up.
