i feel like april 8 is one of my very favorite days of the year - it's Rex Manning Day! now, i realize that some of you don't know what rex manning day is. some of you who are new followers that is, because this is certainly not the first time i've celebrated this holiday.
rex manning day comes from the movie empire records, which is hands down my favorite movie of all time. if you've ever wondered where my blog's name comes from, and never read my about page, it's from this 1995 cult classic. ('hey lucas, is it true you committed the perfect crime?' 'not entirely perfect.') i cannot even tell you how many times i've seen this movie. hundreds. and april 8th is the official day when the rest of the empire records lovers of the world also watch the movie and celebrate. rex manning is the washed up, overly tanned, mega pop star who comes to visit the record store to draw a crowd and sign albums. the entire movie is about this one single day.
if you haven't seen it, i don't even know what you're doing with your life. the time to hesitate is through. and what's with today, today? well, we're celebrating with a giveaway of an empire records prize pack! what's included? the movie on dvd, an itunes giftcard, m&ms, a victoria's secret gift card (ya know, in case you forgot your thingy. unless you're a guy and prefer jockeys, navy blue, that can be arranged), and more! get entered here, it's easy:
have you seen the movie? plan on watching it today? how many quotes from it are in this blog post? happy rex manning day!
