How “Empire Records” Became The Unlikely Film Of A Generation

The first time I watched Empire Records, I immediately rewound the tape and played it again.  My mom was like, “wtf?” and I was like, “you’ll never understand me like this movie understands me.”

Once, in history class, I heard a Super Popular Girl (rich, white, shiny haired, always dating someone, soooo nice to everyone, etc. etc.) talk to her friend about it and I actually interrupted their Super Popular Girl conversation to say, “YOU LIKE EMPIRE RECORDS?!?!?!”  

We were both equally horrified to find out we had something in common. 

I mean, she listened to Backstreet Boys and I liked Nirvana; she wore brand name clothes bought at full price; she liked looking like everyone else— liked looking nice and pretty and presentable (right?);  the only piercing she would ever get was a belly button ring (right?!). 

SHE WAS MUSIC TOWN AND I WAS DEB (OTP A.J.) AND HOW THE FUCK DID WE HAVE A SINGLE THING IN COMMON.

Don’t think I didn’t notice that tag you added.

"#shut up Jason." Hmmph.

madthoughts:

Every time a celebrity’s phone is hacked and nude images leak, 10 years are added to the time it will take me to convince my wife to send me some risque camera shots.

Thanks but no thanks internet. In this case, as one door opens, millions more are shut.

At this rate, I’m expecting some smoking hot mobile holodeck pics when we are 98 years old.

It bears repeating.

"To create some real rock and roll excitement, Binder decided to have all the acts come onstage at the end of the show to dance. Binder told everyone. Except The Rolling Stones. "They finished and thought that was it," he says. "Then Nitzsche and the house band went into a Bo Diddley beat. Jagger didn’t know what was going on. But suddenly, the stage was filled with dancers and all the other performers — The Supremes, The Righteous Brothers, The Miracles. What’s great is, you see Mick smile and just go with it." It’s total mayhem and so rock and roll."

eye-contact:

The Warriors

These are the Lizzies.  They used their feminine wiles to trick some Warriors to go back to their pad (where some of the more butch Lizzies were chilling).  Then, two got up and started some kinda synchronized dance routine that involved a lot of boob thrusting, while the femmes distracted the boys with a makeout party.   Then they all got crazy eyes and whipped out their guns! Shooting at the boys!Basically, the whole scene was a tumblr fever dream and I can’t believe no one has gif’d it yet.

I’ve wanted to dress as a Baseball Fury since I was 17 years old.I think I married a Lizzie.

That’s the sound of the police

A bank was robbed near my mother’s home. For the past hour, sheriff deputies have been systematically searching her block, with a helicopter over head, searching for the suspects.

Now she’s telling me that the suspects stole bikes from a garage, rode down the street, saw better bikes in another garage, ditched the first stolen bikes, and stole new bikes.

"WTF! This is in the daytime," she said to me in a text.

I told her to stay away from the windows. Cops love shooting people.

PS: As I typed this, she told me that the suspects may have also shot and murdered an armored car driver.
