Berra of The Berrics?

Also, Berrics only worth $1.4M? Buying The Skateboard Mag probably didn't do 'em any favors, either.

For  $750,000. I wonder how much more valuable the business would have been 5 years ago. Anyway, two things I don't care about becoming one bigger thing I don't care about is kind of nice, one less thing for me to not care about.

Currently, when you walk into The Berrics through its unassuming front door and down a short hallway you come right into the high-ceilinged park itself. Each section of the walls lining the space is sponsored. Here is a faux 7-11 storefront, there a chunk of wall decorated with the Red Camera logo ó a favorite of Berra who is also an accomplished filmmaker.

Since when?

Now that Berra has less power, do they finally do something about the dude who sodomizes people with a screwdriver?

The board of directors consists of three people (two from HB one from The berries.)

Berra doesn't even call the shots at his own business anymore. I didn't read the entire thing, but is he still allowed to tell people how stupid they are via Instagram?

That deal has been in the works for over a year, surprised it actually went through.

Making a film is in itself an accomplishment.
Getting people to see said film is a much more difficult accomplishment.

One of his movies got a 20% on rotten tomatoes, the other I couldn't find any reviews so I'm assuming it was so bad even the internet refuses to believe it exists.

This could just be a sizzle reel for investors, or the film was shot and couldnít get distribution.  Maybe now Berra can live his 90s dreams of being a indie Chateau Marmont denizen
