The Great Men On The Wall

Excerpt from John D. MacDonald’s 1966 mystery novel, The Last One Left (h/t Burton):

_[She] was one of the great broads, years past the peak of it, but hanging in there so well, you had to marvel at what it had to be costing her in time and effort to keep the illusion of youth. Not only the masks and packs, and the oils and skin foods and lotions and the careful measuring of sun to keep that flawless brown gold of the expensive tennis-club tan, but on top of that, the daily measurements of every dimension to the quarter part of an inch, followed by exercises that would exhaust a stevedore. Then, once you had the pretty machine all assembled, you had to imitate the unconscious tricks of youth, no matter how tired the flesh. You had to walk pert, more trimly and quickly, smile saucy, exaggerate all expressions and all gestures, move the head quickly, and run the voice up and down as many notes of the scale as you could handle._

_But, baby, the years are written on the backs of your hands, in bulged veins and thickened knucklebones, and written in the horizontal lines across your throat and in the little striated patterns on the slightly puffed flesh under the eyes._”

Christine Ballcutter-Fraud must have been fighting the advance of the Wall during her Fake Testimony. It’s disconcerting to see an older woman who hasn’t aged well at all hit every note on the valley girl register in a transparently lame effort to sound like a vulnerable teen girl. Shitlibs, naturally, fell for it.

***

Bonus quote, this one credited to Hemingway, although I haven’t been able to confirm the source:

You could never remember the exact moment she was in love with you – but you knew the instant she wasn’t.

All to true for so many men, but for the few who have earned their stripes, the moment a woman falls in love with you is detectable when she inconveniences herself for your favor. (More romantically, it’s the moment her eyes do the talking.)

PS In case I hadn’t mentioned it before, the Hemingway short story “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” is an absolute must-read for any student of the crimson pill. Hemingway knew the truth of female hypergamy and its attendant vindictiveness toward beta males who dare to rise above their station.

  1. I gotta check out that Hemingway short story; thanks for the link. I like his writing style, which is any reason I like Raymond Carver’s style. Though Carver’s are some damn depressing stories.

  2. I can’t recall the exact issues, but Dave Sim’s “Cerebus” had an arc on Hemingway when he went on a Safari with his wife. The general gist was that the wife was relentless in her emasculation and equalization to her husband that contributed to his suicide.

      The b!tch would rather he killed died than find satisfaction away from her solipsistic, sadistic emasculation. In the story, she kills her man at the moment his mind turns from her clit-teat to the freedom his own unbridled masculinity.

      A high school English class circa 1980. Those must’ve been the days.

      I remember a few years ago leafing through my father’s high school yearbooks from early to mid-70s. Medium-sized town in English-speaking Canada. It looked like a wonderful time and place. The student body looked hale and wholesome; the girls were radiant and looked more like young women with blow-dryed blonde hair blouses. There seemed to be an enormous amount of school spirit leaping off the page: all the teams, clubs, sporting events, productions, teachers looked relaxed and friendly. Candid photos of guys and girls walking down the halls earnestly carrying books or hanging out in the quadrangle or the library. Needless to say, the school was 99% white.

      I went to the same high school as my father. When I shewed up in the late 90s, there were vestiges of the old times, including some of the same teachers and books in the library that my father and uncles had signed out, but even by that time, something had changed. Yes, it was less white, but still over 90%. Yes the English department still taught Shakespeare and poetry, but it’s almost as it the soul, that beating force that made the 70s look like such a warm, familiar, and congenial time, was starting to erode. Yes, They were giving out condoms in the nurse’s office, but the whole gay, lettuce bacon and tomato scourge hadn’t yet descended.

      I’d frankly be terrified to send a child into a publick high school today. At least one that wasn’t in the whitest, remotest, bible beltest region I could find.

    • For YT vids, just copy the URL from the address bar and paste into the comments window. However, with great power comes great responsibility.

      For photos: right-click on the image and copy the image address. As a rule of thumb, I always paste that copied address in the address bar to make sure I got it right. And, ensure that the file extension at the end of the link is either: jpg, png or even jpeg. Do the same thing: paste that link—ending with those extensions—in the comments section.

      For photos, sometimes they are cropped and those cropping dimensions are attached at the end of the extension, i.e. *.jpg:width=500&height=300. Delete everything after jpg

  11. “What happened to you?” she said suddenly, lightly pushing me away, feigning anger, and heartbreak, and shock. “Why did you leave me?”

    I looked at her with a puzzled look on my face trying to determine if she was asking me a serious question. She couldn’t possibly have forgotten that she left me, suddenly, and without explanation. I’m a lot older today than I was then, and I’ve learned a lot about women in the interim. Now, any female attempts at revisionist history bounce off my body like a bullshit Superman, leaving little piles of smelly words all around me. I called her out on it, but I wasn’t butthurt. That ship sailed a long time ago.

    “Carmen, you left me. It’s that simple,” I said plainly. “You know that, so don’t try to paint it any other way. It embarrasses you.”

    She buried her head in my chest again. “I know. I’m so sorry. You have no idea. You’re the only one it ever felt right to be with. You always just let me be me.”

    Every man’s had a woman in his life who steals his soul and turns his whole world into a giant fucking circus act. Any man who hasn’t, hasn’t really lived. Carmen was my ringmaster – once upon a time.

    ‘All to true for so many men, but for the few who have earned their stripes, the moment a woman falls in love with you is detectable when she inconveniences herself for your favor.’

    Something similar. I remember one moment, in my first relationship. We’d been together two years, I’d just completed university and had just started my first job – a place with a great reputation, but the people … My manager was a man-handed humourless middle-management small-town square, and I’d complained to my girlfriend about her.

    A few weeks later, we were out somewhere social with friends, and people asked me how my job was going. I started saying that it wasn’t all what I had expected it to be, especially the management. My girlfriend jumped into the conversation and said, unprompted ‘She’s not a good manager at all. No people skills, no humour’.

    I was taken aback. It was as though she had completely absorbed everything I’d said, without question – that she and I were one, and that what I saw was what she saw. That really surprised me.

    It was great for the next six months. Then she started getting all ‘broody’. Wanting to move in. I resisted, she started with dread game; blue pill me, not realising the score, ignored it thinking the cheesedick she was flirting with had no chance with her. She escalated, I withdrew, she eventually left me for cheesedick, he pumped and dumped her and six months later she’s telling me the same stuff that ThoughtMarauder penned above.

    You live and learn.

    I can’t tell you how much I love this community.

  14. I worked on a project that allowed me to read a very large portion of Ernest Hemingway’s mail. [fun facts: he used to go fishing and shoot sharks with sub machine guns. He was once in a plane crash. A second plane came to the rescue to transport the injured survivors. The second plane crashed as well. He survived. Loved big game hunting] Thousands and thousands of letters. IMO he was purple pill. Def a manly man, but it did seem like the concept of ‘true love’ ate away at him. He could go out and bang a chick only to turn around the next day and pen a sappy creed professing his love and devotion for another. Very interesting man.
