Happy (Almost) Rex Manning Day

Tomorrow is Rex Manning Day, one of my favorite days to celebrate all year.  If you've followed my blog for at least a year, then you already know about this because I remind youEvery April 8.  Which is the official Rex Manning Day date, I didn't just pick it randomly.  And what the heck is it, you ask if you never been here before?  The date to celebrate Rex Manning, the fictional celebrity star, and all things Empire Records.  Which is a movie from 1995, please tell me you at least know that much.  Because it is, after all, what my blog is named after.  My favorite line from my favorite movie.

This is the entire plot of Empire Records summed up: a bunch of teens at work in a record store on one particular day when a washed up former pop star (Rex Manning) is coming in to sign autographs.  Yup.  That's it in one sentence.  Obviously it's so much more than that or I wouldn't love it like I do.  And the music makes it, obviously.

Clearly, I'll be watching Empire Records tomorrow.  For the I've lost count how many times in my life.  Hundreds.  Tweet me or tag me on Instagram if you'll be joining in!  Damn the man, save the Empire!
