Earlier today I received a message from my lovely lady that read, "Do you know what day it is?" Knowing we're two days shy of Pizza Thursday, my stomach immediately knotted up as my mind raced through a mental list of unnecessary girlfriend holidays in search of the April 8th's irrelevant significance. Suddenly it dawned on me, it's REX MANNING DAY!
Today marks the 19th Rex Manning Day, the fictitious holiday that commemorates the sub-par 1995 cult classic Empire Records
, which starred Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger, Ethan Embry and others as a group of deadbeat record store employees. Join us as we watch the movie's best musical clips to reflect on Sexy Rexy's stunning presence and flawless hair...

AC/DC - "If You Want Blood"

And finally, the man himself, Sexy Rexy...
