Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1989) (part 6 of 12)

Just so we don’t forget the evil record company guys—who, let’s face it, are having less and less impact on the plot every time we see them—we now go to Satin Records Headquarters. Reporters are swarming around Dennis Miller Guy and Mafia Used Car Salesman as they stroll through the lobby, dropping hints about Eddie having been seen in twelve states—and Paris, France! A nebbish reporter demands to know how long they’re going to keep up this “scam”, which gets him angrily pushed out of the elevator (but alas, not down the shaft). Once they’re alone, Dennis Miller asks Mafia Used Car Guy the same question. The response? “As long as we’ve got records to sell!” Bwhahaha!

“Mr. Eisen, do you deny that the record company plot is hopelessly contrived and pointless?” “No comment.”

And now it’s time for the gallery opening. Eddie saunters in wearing jeans and a leather jacket, earning him reproachful looks from the cream of Montreal society. Ha ha, the juxtaposition of the working class and the well-to-do is so funny! And the best part is, it’s never been done before!

Mark "Scooter" Wilson

Mark is a history guy, a graphics guy, a guy for whom wryly cynical assessments of popular culture are the scallion cream cheese on the toasted everything bagel of life. He spends his time teaching modern history at Brooklyn College, pondering the ancient Romans at the CUNY Graduate Center, and conjuring maps and illustrations for ungrateful bankers at various Manhattan monoliths. Readers are welcome to guess at reasons why he's nicknamed Scooter, with the proviso that all such submissions are guaranteed to be rather more interesting than the truth. Mark lives in the Midwood section of Brooklyn with a happy-go-lucky, flop-eared dog named Chiyo who is probably, at this very moment, waiting patiently for her walkies.
