Happy Rex Manning Day!
I don't know why Empire Records made such an impact on me. Maybe it's because I saw it as a music-obsessed teen that idolized people that worked in record stores and wanted friends that felt the same way. I guess it made me realize I did fit in somewhere and I wasn't just some fucked up misfit. There were other people like me.
In college, I watched this movie regularly. A college teacher asked me where I wanted to be in 5 years and gave the plot summary to the movie adaptation to High Fidelity. I can't help it. I've always wanted to be in a record store surrounded by what I loved most: music.
