BRASH YOUNG HISTORY LESSON
Brash Young Cinema, the website, began around last year when I figured
out tripod.com and HTML, and soon after that the cafeteria in my mom's
building closed down, leaving an empty space in the basement. My mom,
wanting to get my lazy fat ass movin, gave me the space and told me I
could do anything I wanted with it and so I decided to make in into a
Around May, this year, after my campaign with Manny Villar, I finally
decided to get it movin. I got the Sony TV from the house, brought the
laser and dvd player. I also began to set-up the chairs in the place from
the old cafeteria, when my girlfriend Margie (who wasn't my girlfriend
yet then) and buddy Harvey told me about this feller named JJ, who was
screening movies out of Insomnia in Malate. JJ, in fact, was someone I
knew from a long time ago and by happenstance we came across each other
in Sanctum around a week later. So we decided to combine forces and we
formed Brash Young Cinema, the movie theater. We got some sofas and appliances
from Fritz Bart, the Austrian, food and drinks from various sources, videos
from even more various sources and so finally we are where we are today.
So welcome to Brash Young Cinema, and I hope you have a great time. And
let us make Philippine cinema better then we know it!
