The Evolution Of Lee Van Cleef


Lee Van Cleef was an actor, perhaps most famous for his roles in The Good, Bad and Ugly along with For A Few Dollars More. He often played villains, but also portrayed good guys or semi-good guys.

Early in his career, he often played hot-headed bad guys. Actually, he did this quite a bit, especially in 50s and early 60s TV Westerns. Then in the mid-sixties, the starred in the movies mentioned above. He was different. No longer the hot-head type, he was cool, resourceful and driven; but not so cool as to have no emotions. He went on to star in lots of spaghetti westerns after that, becoming the genre’s biggest star.

From my perspective, the latter Lee Van Cleef played much roles. As a fella, perhaps I have an innate distrust of hot-headed potentially violent characters. They are the kind of people that if associated with can get you killed. The cooler, more methodical, though potentially equally as violent, characters were more to my liking.

Do the women prefer each type equally? They are intrigued by potentially violent men. Does the type matter? Do they discriminate like me? Inquiring minds want to know.

Exit question — How many people out there like westerns?

    There is a difference between leaders and manger.

    Women prefer leaders…. ie emotional men

    Truth be told, in the small group leadership settings I made my bread and butter at, so do men.

    The managerial types start hitting their stride when you get to about 120 men or so, infantry company size.

    To run a truly large crew a man has to be able to pull out the emotional again…. Trump would be my go to example of that

    Good news, the kids are harvesting my Glenora grapes, small, spicy, sweet with an aftertaste sorta like blueberries. They harvested most of them after school with some of their friends, it is good because the Sweetie has problems with pesticides. My lime-sulfur and oil twice in the fall doesn’t bother her. They will freeze most of my Interlaken grapes in a week or two depending upon the weather.

    Their Dad went hunting with my youngest brother in Saskatchewan, they got two moose in a half hour at false dawn…ok, it took several hours to gut them, haul them in, drop the hide and heads, but their cleaned quarters and cooled were a little more than a thousand pounds. They are about to understand why both my wife and myself loved roast young moose with mashed potatoes and gravy ;-D

Between that and coming off like I might be eating someone’s heart in a minute at all times I don’t really lead. Just organize.

    Van Cleef also played the sniper who took down the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. He and Eastwood both had minor roles in 50’s sci-fi movies before becoming stars.

    Shops were looted, in some cases repeatedly, this past summer. It sullies the cause of social justice protests to link the two together. The looting was pure criminality.

    The city’s lack of prosecution for most shoplifting is another big DIY problem. It played heavily into Macy’s decision to close before COVID-19 and is extremely costly for small retailers. Fear of street crime also helped kill the Kress IGA, my neighborhood supermarket. The chronic unsheltered, drug dealers and the mentally ill keep customers away and worry employees.

    The loss of Bergman Luggage (and its big neon sign) is especially telling. Owner Hardial Gill said the downtown location had been profitable and the landlord accommodating during the pandemic. But the store faced repeated burglaries, tents on the sidewalk and finally looting. . .

    Mayor Jenny Durkan appears uncomfortable interacting with the business community and has lost power to an assertive council. That body is obsessed with defunding the police without a viable Plan B. Its membership is stuffed with career activists and pols, with thin business experience at best.

    No wonder the council is hostile to business. Even the smallest shop is exploitative capitalism. The council’s loudest voices are running a “revolution.” Only in a city made so prosperous by hated capitalism could this intellectual Ponzi scheme be tolerated or seem without consequences

    The following diagnostic test might help all citizens who are suffering from this terrible malady… Maybe you can help some friends or family with this tool.

    TDS QUESTIONNAIRE V 1.0

    Before you take this test, we want to stress that having a mental illness should not make you feel ashamed. Seek professional help if you experience any of the following symptoms during the assessment:

    You start seeing Russians everywhere around you
    You feel the need to burn buildings
    You start convulsing uncontrollably
    Question 1
    Imagine one of your friends or family members saying the following:

    “I’m not talking about the neo-nazis and white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”

    Which of the following statements is true:

    a. your friend condems neo-nazis and white nationalists totally
    b. your friend supports neo-nazis and white nationalists

    Question 2
    Donald Trump is on record saying the following words (see here for full transcript):

    “I’m not talking about the neo-nazis and white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”

    Which of the following statements is true:

    a. Donald Trump condemns neo-nazis and white nationalists totally
    b. Donald Trump supports neo-nazis and white nationalists

    Question 3:
    Please read the following lines out loud three times (from the DJT response to the Charlottesville violence):

    “So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

    While reading these lines, did you experience any of the following symptoms:

    A complete form of amnesia: you do not remember reading the lines above
    Feelings of anger towards Trump supporters, Christians or law-abiding citizens in general
    A profound feeling of despair, as if your entire world is crumbling down around you
    TDS scoring:
    If you answered a to question 1 and b to question 2: 4 points
    For any of the symptoms in question 3: add 1 point.

    Results:
    1-3 points: inconclusive test
    4 points: possible TDS
    5-6 points: probable TDS
    7 points: certain TDS

    Advice:
    If you score 4 points or higher, we recommend you to contact a health professional to talk about these (and probably many other) issues. Stay healthy and safe, and once more: do not feel ashamed about mental conditions (like media brainwashing) but talk about them openly. We are here to help.
