Happy Rex Manning Day!!
For anyone who hasn’t seen the 1995 masterpiece Empire Records, Rex Manning is a fictitious former ’80s pop-star.
In the movie, he was heading to Empire Records for an album signing and via a poster briefly glimpsed in one scene, the date was April 8th.
And guess what today’s date is…
Yup, that makes today Rex Manning day!!
One of the biggest fans of Rex Manning day, a man who was actually THERE at Empire Records and met Rex himself, Ethan Embry, tweeted:
