Sometimes you find a low budget gem! “8 Slices” is a gem.
I will relate a real story to explain how the boss of “8 Slices” treats his employees, and yes, there are real people out there like this guy.
Joe Park was the manager of shipping and receiving at Sears in Bay Shore, NY (ON (not in) Long Island). I was attending the State University of New York at Stony Brook as a U.S. Navy veteran majoring in electrical engineering.
Joe Park knew that most, if not all of his employees, were there temporarily and had other aspirations, dreams and goals in life. Mine was to be an engineer (see how that all turned out at TechyMike.com).
One day, he knew the Space Shuttle Enterprise was going to be testing for the first time and that it would be covered on TV. Joe patted me on the shoulder and told me to go upstairs to TV’s. I did, and there it was…..the Space Shuttle!
I was mesmerized.
I never forgot Joe Park, I will never forget Joe Park. And I will always be grateful for what he did for me (and for others in our small group) in the 1970’s.
He was a great man hiding in shipping and receiving.
Here is an account of that day, and a video:
“8 Slices”, if you find this movie on Amazon Prime or YouTube, watch it…..it is great…..just like Joe Park.
Oh, yeah….books, and authors, play a big part in this movie, just like they do in my life now.
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
More indie / low budget movies….that happen to be pretty darn terrific.
