Happy 2019 Rex Manning Day!

Happy 2019 Rex Manning Day!

“We mustn’t dwell. No, not today. We can’t. Not on Rex Manning day!” -Mark (Ethan Embry)

April 8th is a big day for Empire Records enthusiasts as it’s been deemed Rex Manning Day.  And thus we celebrate that day every year at Phil’s Quick capsule Review.

From TIME magazine:
“Rex Manning was the fictional pop star in the 1995 movie Empire Records. On April 8, “Oh Rexy, you’re so sexy” Manning has a scheduled appearance at a struggling independent record store that the staff (which includes Renee Zellweger and Liv Tyler) is desperately trying to save from turning into corporate chain.

While the film flopped, making a mere quarter million dollars during its two-week theatrical run, it quickly became a cult classic — and the fake-tanned Rex Manning became an icon.”

“Who knows where thoughts come from. They just appear.”Joe
