Rex Manning Day

Today, if you didn’t know it, is Rex Manning Day.

Rex Manning (Maxwell Caulfield) is an aging pop star selling his latest record in the 1995 movie, Empire Records.

The staff of Empire Records, led by Joe Reaves (Anthony LaPaglia) are simply trying to keep their doors open. But with a larger music retail chain looking to buy up the store and conflicts arising between various staff members, can they pull together to keep Empire Records going?

This movie is, if nothing else, a time capsule. There was a time in America, before Itunes and the internet, when the record store was king when it came to music. It was not just a music store, it was a place to socialize and share the mutual experience that is being a music fan. Unfortunately, times have changed and the music store, as it was, no longer exists.

But the full video for Say No More, Mon Amour does exist.

Happy Rex Manning Day!
