Halloween 2017: 10 Boo-zy Cocktail Recipes to Raise Your “Spirits”

  • DailyDead
The month of October is an exciting time of year for kids—and also those of us who still consider ourselves “kids at heart”—and with that in mind, I wanted to put together a collection of fun and festive cocktails that you can serve up at your Halloween gatherings, or just mix up anytime you want to get into the “spirit” of the season over the next few weeks.

Halloween Blood Orange Martini

When Blood Oranges season begins, it’s a big moment in our house, as we’re huge fans of the crisp tartness of this fruit (especially when paired with cranberries), particularly in the fall. With that in mind, I thought these Halloween Blood Orange Martinis (via Culinary Ginger) would be a great drink to serve this month, and while the recipe doesn’t call for it, I feel like adding a few cranberries to this martini

‘King of the Hill’ Creator Mike Judge to Receive Writers Guild Animation Award

‘King of the Hill’ Creator Mike Judge to Receive Writers Guild Animation Award
King of the Hill” and “Silicon Valley” co-creator Mike Judge has been selected to receive the Writers Guild of America West’s Animation Writers Caucus’ 2016 writing award for lifetime achievement.

“We’re very excited for Mike Judge to receive this long-overdue honor,” said WGA West VP David A. Goodman.

“His contributions to the field of animation, among them the groundbreaking ‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ and the long-running hit ‘King of the Hill’ have advanced the form of animation storytelling and continue to be a benchmark for creators everywhere,” Goodman said. “We applaud the risk he took to guarantee making ‘King of the Hill’ a WGA-covered show, which to this day helps the Guild chip away at the precedents that keep writers who work in animation from receiving the guarantees and benefits of our union.”

Judge, a WGA member since 1998, was born in 1962 in Ecuador and raised in Albuquerque, N.M. MTV picked up Judge’s 1992 animated short, “Frog Baseball

Exclusive Interview: Oointah On The Inspirations Behind Death By Game Show

A title coming out this week that you may have missed is the explosive indie game, Death By Game Show; a twitch-action and tower defense hybrid from developer Oointah.

The game takes place 500 years into the future, where droids now rule the world due to humans becoming irreversibly idiotic—and the earth’s new mechanical masters intend to keep it that way, sentencing any person with even just a tiny glimmer of intelligence to ‘Death By Game Show.’ Such is the fate of U.H. Wutt, a heavy-set hero who is by no means smart, but compared to the rest of his fellow men, he is practically Albert Einstein.

If the premise sounds familiar, it’s because the developers were heavily inspired by the 2006 comedy film, Idiocracy, which was written and directed by famed satirist Mike Judge. Judge is perhaps best known as the creator of such animated sitcoms as Beavis and Butthead,

Silicon Valley box set review: ‘This may truly be the satire for our times’

Mike Judge’s subtle sitcom about a likable geek who leaves Google-like Hooli to code it alone reflects – and comically distorts – the hermetically sealed cult of tech

Mike Judge, the sly cultural observer who skewered a generation with Beavis and Butt-head and made a smalltown Texas conservative sympathetic in the long-running King of the Hill, has struggled to match his cartoon peaks in the live-action arena (although his flavourings-factory comedy film, Extract, was better than it sounds). But the startup-themed Silicon Valley, his first flesh-and-blood sitcom for HBO, is easily his warmest and subtlest work. It’s already into its 10-episode second season on Sky; here are the first eight.

A show that toggles between revenge-of-the-nerds soap opera and knife-sharp spoof, Silicon Valley’s unlikely hero is Richard, played by the goofily nasal Thomas Middleditch. He’s an accidental genius who quits an insufferable Google-type company called Hooli, where he

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Who wins, then and now?
Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor,

Mike Judge on 'Silicon Valley' Emmy nods and dreams that (thankfully) don't come true

Mike Judge on 'Silicon Valley' Emmy nods and dreams that (thankfully) don't come true
Before creating Silicon Valley— the new HBO comedy that Thursday morning garnered five Emmy nominations—Mike Judge says he “hadn’t had a hit in awhile.” Specifically, he was referring to a pair of high-profile 2009 projects: the ABC animated series The Goode Family and the Jason Bateman-led feature film Extract, both of which were received unenthusiastically by audiences. Despite those hiccups, flops have been the exception rather than the rule for the creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy. So when it was announced that Silicon Valley was up for Emmys in Best Comedy,

Tammy movie review: women behaving badly

Dumb, pointless, unentertaining crap. But at least it’s about women. Yay? Nah. I’m “biast” (pro): love Melissa McCarthy

I’m “biast” (con): …but despair that she will ever get a film worthy of her talent

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, it’s a step in the right direction. I suppose. A tiny one.

Goddammit. *sigh*

There are a lot of women onscreen in Tammy. In the same way that most movies feature a ton of men onscreen doing stupid shit for an hour and half with only occasional interruptions from women. That’s what Tammy is. It’s dumb, pointless, unentertaining crap. But at least it’s about women.

Yay?

What does Tammy (Melissa McCarthy: The Heat, The Hangover Part III) want? She’s the central character of this aimless collection of random, supposedly comedic setpieces, and we have no idea who she is.

Watch: First Full Episode Of HBO’s 'Silicon Valley' Plus Review Of Mike Judge's Tech World Comedy

Over the course of his career, Mike Judge has always been a keen observer of the absurd, mundane minutiae of the work world. Of course, "Office Space" is his crowing achievement, pitch perfectly capturing the soul crushing ennui of working 9 to 5. Judge returned to the well with "Extract," something a bit more screwball, less focused and as a result, less satisfying. And while Strickland Propane of "King Of The Hill" was another opportunity to skewer working life, it was more of an added texture to the All American Hank Hill than a particular point for parody. However, "Silicon Valley" returns Judge full throttle to the arena of clock-punching, management and ambition, with the tech world setting providing a fresh twist, but with results decidedly mixed across the first five episodes sent to press. Season premiere "Minimum Viable Product"—now available in full on YouTube for the next three weeks (watch

Silicon Valley Series Premiere Review: “Minimum Viable Product” (Season 1, Episode 1)

Mike Judge has been more successful on the small screen than on the big one. Compare the huge success of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill to the cult status of Office Space and outright obscurity of Idiocracy and Extract and you’ll see what I mean. Sure, he flopped on TV with his last show, The Goode Family, but in light of how enjoyable the first episode of Silicon Valley is, that misstep can be forgotten.

The problem with Judge as a screenwriter for movies is that he seems entirely unable to write a third act. With TV, he doesn’t have to. There isn’t the expectation of making the story fit into a conventional three act movie structure. He is free to focus on his strengths, which are memorable characters and an absolutely brilliant sense of social satire.

Both of those strengths are already present in spades in Silicon Valley,

Review: HBO's 'Silicon Valley' highlights the best of Mike Judge
The Silicon Valley presented in the terrific new HBO comedy of the same name (it debuts Sunday night at 10) is a kind of Wild West for nerds: a lawless territory where they can be among their own kind rather than struggle to fit into a more structured world that doesn't understand them, and a place where they can seek massive fortune along the way. That vision of the Valley also fits HBO itself in a way, since it's long been a place where creative types with idiosyncratic personalities and specific, uncompromising creative visions could go to find success in a safer, more wide-open environment. It's where David Chase could go when he was on the verge of quitting the TV business altogether and tell the story of a wiseguy in therapy. It's where David Milch could go to be given the absolute freedom to succeed so beautifully with "Deadwood" (and

Mike Judge Explains His Cultural Influences

Mike Judge Explains His Cultural Influences
Mike Judge’s new HBO show Silicon Valley examines Bay Area start-up culture with all of the earnest solemnity you’d expect from the creator of Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill and the director of Extract, Idiocracy, and Office Space. These are the movies, TV shows, musicians, and cartoonists that inspired Judge during his own incubation stage.1. Leave it to Beaver It seemed like a dorky 1950s show, but it was hilarious. I remember an episode where June was telling Beaver he should never lie because God always knows, to which Beaver said, “Yeah, and he has enough to worry about with the Russians and all.” The show is as relevant today as it was then. 2. Robert CrumbHe might be the best cartoonist of all time. If I could draw like anyone, I think it would be him. He’s also a great writer. 3. Dazed and ConfusedWhen
