    I kind of agree with almost everyone. The movie could have been technically produced better. But at the same time it was an independant film so go figure. I am 35 so I did not get to experience but one time as a 15 year old. My cousin Greg (transvestite) snuck me in there. Believe me watching the beginning took me right back there. I thought the story was told with respect. Crazy time it was. Very spontaneous and underground. Story needs to be documented so I am proud of Josell and he deserves his props. Nuff respect to anyone involved in that project. There is still room for another story. I think everyone will agree with that.

    As I was watching this documentary it took me right back to the club. I wish there was a place like that still in existence.
    I remember those days fondly. I got my hang out card from my family and found THE PARADISE GARAGE,my family all thought I was crazy and really didn't understand the moods I swept in and out of from Monday through Friday. Iwas living for the weekend. My older sister discovered the club (she still has her membership card, she should put it in a frame) and ranted about the fun she had. I beat her and the experience was differnet in 1984 than it was in 1981.
    In '81 we were TRULY A FAMILY at the club.....THOSE WERE THE DAYS AND THE PARADISE GARAGE WAS THE PLACE TO BE!!!
