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