It is that time of year again where DANA SPECHT and I put together our annual interview. Now for those of you who don’t know, every summer Dana goes home to be with her family and while she is away we pre-record an interview where each week she uploads sections to her website. Once that is done we then generally put it on spanking tube. I’m pretty amazed that so far we have done this five years running and we always do it on a Sunday night at the Boardwalk Badness Weekend when everyone is out on the cruise.
So in preparation of this year, and being that we have done five so far, we decided for number 6 we would do six of the best. It’s quite a simple concept and we have put together a small list to start, but we also want to hear your thoughts and questions. If you don’t have a six of the best for Dana, then maybe you have something that we can add as “Six of the best random questions”. This is what we have so far…SIX OF THE BEST roles to play, positions, videos, implements, bottoms she has spanked, verbal warnings, presents received, additional punishments. Is there a SIX OF THE BEST list that you can think of? Be as creative as you want. Either fill out the DANA SURVEY or simply enter your six of the best in the box below.
Now I will be shocked if this pic isn’t somewhere in the spanking world, perhaps on one of the old Yahoo spanking groups. This particular pic was spoken about on Chross’forum by fellow collector Will@Gotham56, but there is no picture there. I’m sure that I have seen it before, though I also think that the quality was pretty poor. However, during a search yesterday I was able to stumble across a real high quality pic of what I believe to be the publicity still in New York’s Penn Station that Will spoke of. If you have posted it on a spanking blog before then by all means let me know and I will link to your post. Before I added it I did check all of the other spanking sites that this pic was likely to be on, even though I’m going to guess that this copy is the best one so far.
It was a couple of years ago that I found the hairbrush spanking pic on Ebay which seems to be an alternate take of the famous Baby Snooks spanking pic where Hanley Stafford’s spanking hand is obscured. Don’t worry, all three spanking pics are in this post. So this one is now going to make four known spanking pics of Fanny Brice which are all in this post, though this is one of those scenarios where future spanking pics are likely to occur. So here is the first pic, the latest find, which is the publicity still. Now I know that some folks like to pictures to not be altered in any way, shape or form, so I will share it as I found it. The other pics are below. I have also included an Ebay find from 1923 where two girls are playing dress up, one as Charlie Chaplin and the other as Baby Snooks. Just scroll down for all of the pics.
The Baby Snooks Show was an American radio program starring comedian and Ziegfeld Follies alumna Fanny Brice as a mischievous young girl who was 40 years younger than the actress who played her when she first went on the air. The series began on CBS September 17,1944,airing on Sunday evenings at 6:30pm as Post Toasties Time (for sponsor General Foods). The title soon changed to The Baby Snooks Show,and the series was sometimes called Baby Snooks and Daddy.
Zero time to even talk, and I’m posting this at 6.30am just so that I can get something on the blog. I will explain tomorrow what has been happening and why I have been absent,Until then, here is a spanking variety of newspaper clippings for you all to browse.
It was a couple of years ago that I subscribed to a large newspaper archive to try and score some rare finds for you all. While I culled a good number of articles, unfortunately I didn’t devote as much time as was needed and it ended up costing me over a hundred dollars because I forgot to cancel, lol. However, on the plus side I was able to get some really good ones which you will now find circulating around the Internet, and I still have a folder full more for people to benefit from the fruits of my labor.
This next article is from 1946 and features a man spanking his wife who was 15 years older than he was. To read the article just click on the picture below. Like I said, I have a ton of clippings just like this that probably haven’t been on the Internet before so I will try and post a few more over the coming weeks.
It’s so nice to have a long three day weekend, it might actually mean that I can not only post tomorrow but also prepare a couple of posts to post automatically while I am at work. It has been such a frustrating thing over the last year or so, finding any amount of spare time to devote to my blogs, and specifically to this one. There are times where I get envious that other people are able to blog so frequently because I just love to write and share my thoughts. Who knows, perhaps I can finally write a new story tomorrow, it has been so long since I wrote a new one.
The other reason that I have become more of a picture blog, well, I guess that is actually two-fold because I have such a great collection of rare pics to share, but the other reason is that I simply haven’t been active in the last year. Having gone to so many parties over a period of many years I found that the party scene stopped being fun for me. It was about a year ago that I decided that I needed to take a full break from the scene. Now I still keep in touch with the SSNY family, and my vanilla Facebook comprises of my old SSC friends who are primarily my friends in real life now anyway, and of course I exchange emails with people who write to me via my blog, so I’m not totally a hermit just yet. In other areas though I lost complete interest.
It is all self induced as well, completely in my own control. The same enjoyment at parties is still there, the excited people, the sense of being a part of something special and the great opportunities to play, along with the less desirable behaviors that you find in any setting. There will come a time where I will once more arrive at the part where everything about a spanking party is 100% positive and the things that I don’t enjoy are no longer of any importance.
It has been nine months since I last played if you can believe that, a joint birthday party that the SSNY organizers threw in the honor of three of us who share a birthday that weekend. The last person I played with also happened to be the first person I ever played with, Pixie. The first time that I got to use the gym shoe that the London Tanner sent me. In a couple of months time it will be the Boardwalk Badness Weekend so I’m sure by then I will be up for some play as it would have been nearly a year by that point since I last played. One thing that I am particularly looking forward to is reading a bedtime story to a bunch of girls in their pajamas. Just this week I bought a classic children’s book which is going to be ideal for those who have a ‘little’ mindset.
Anyway, for those of you who love my picture collection it is time for this weeks rarity. This entry goes all the way back to 1949 and comes from the play “A Mind Of Her Own”. I would recommend clicking the link below to the small archive that I have of pics from this play as this play produces some of the very best rare spanking pics.
Valdor over at the Spank Statement recently posted about the passing of Murray Roberts, a lifelong collector of historical spanking memorabilia and avid fan of Kiss Me Kate spanking pics in particular. Now I am not going to steal anyone’s thunder, if you wish to read about Murray you can do so RIGHT HERE. I have already left my comments on Valdor’s post so I encourage you to click the link and read the tributes to Murray.
Having exchanged emails with Murray I had sent him a good number of Kiss Me Kate spanking pics for his own collection and we had even discussed the play and my disliking of KMK spanking pics. It’s sad, but true, I have never been a fan of Kiss Me Kate spanking pics, though I can’t exactly put my finger on the actual reason why. It is probably because the participants are in period wear which is something that I have a strong dislike of, though perhaps it is also because the billowing dress, multiple petticoats and with the bloomers on whoever plays Kate probably can’t feel a thing.
While I have a small folder of Kiss Me Kates on this blog, most of my pics from this play sit in a folder on my laptop and I have dozens of them that I rarely post. Anyway, to honor Murray, I shall give you one of them today to enjoy. The reason I chose this one is pretty obvious I think, that is one spankable looking butt!!
Today I am going to share some blog love as well as my usual weekly feature, but before you click any link be sure to look at my offering below for this week.
Now I have been collecting pics for a few years now and I like to think that I have a really unique collection that is all brand new to the spanking world, but I’m not alone in that. There are other collectors who have been doing this for longer than I have, but they haven’t used a blog to post their finds. One of these people is Harry who is now co-authoring The Spank Statement.
Now each week I share with you several different pictures from a variety of subjects, but other than a brief synopsis all I am doing is sharing with you my finds. Now I have mentioned before, this isn’t totally something that is done for free, there are numerous subscriptions that I use and I am one of the rare folks who will actually purchase spanking photos if I think that I can get a better copy of the pic that way. Harry on the other hand does things a little differently in that aside from paying for subscriptions, he also purchases the scripts of the plays that feature a spanking in it. In fact just recently I probably cost him a fortune because I shared with him my list of plays with a spanking in that I had, and there was a good number (a dozen or more) that he didn’t have listed.
So this is what I am going to do to share the love. We are a community and the whole purpose of doing what we do is to share our collections so that everyone can enjoy them. Anything that I post is free for anyone to use and spread amongst the spanking community, one can only hope that the courtesy is returned and pics are linked back so that the same spanking community can view and enjoy all of the wonderful spanking finds that we provide to the community.
So I will lead by example there. One thing that Harry does when he makes a post is that he not only shares the pictures, but he also gives you his synopsis of the play in question, and perhaps the most important of all, he provides us with the relevant portions of the script so that we can see the spanking scene in detail. There are many different folders that I have featuring many different plays, but what I will do going forward is that I will add a link to each page pointing to the relevant play synopsis provided by Harry. We will start with this weeks play, Men Are Like Streetcars.
As you will no doubt tell from my lack of activity, I’ve been pretty busy this week, and it doesn’t stop today either. A quick funny story though, they wanted me to work today which of course I have to do from time to time on a Saturday, but I used leverage. You want me in? Then I get to use the T-1 connection to watch the football this morning. I think there was some reluctance, but ultimately having the football on while I build servers isn’t really going to impact my job performance
By the way, my Brother put a fiver on England to beat Wales for me in the rugby yesterday so I have £13.25 in my betting account.
Just going through my list and I see that I still have over 90 Men Are Like Streetcars un-posted spanking pics still to come, and I always seem to be finding more, lol. This one today is from 1957 and I only found it yesterday, but it is definitely one of the better ones. I want to thank everyone who has answered the site survey so far, and if you haven’t it is also at the bottom of this post. I’ve had about 40 responses so far and there are two clear leaders, most people come to this site for the pictures, not that the selection is much of a surprise, virtually everything I post is unique and has probably not been seen before, and it will help make future spanking blogs popular for years to come. The other clear leader was a bit of a surprise, the type of spanking. The leader by a long shot is discipline spankings. As I stated, this can only help the direction, and I sense a parental discipline spanking in story form in the near future.
I’m busy watching the soccer today and scouring for new spanking pics, which I’ve done pretty well with so far this morning, three new Men Are Like Streetcars pics already of which one will be posted tomorrow. The other day though I stumbled across some spanking surveys over on Dana Kane’s site (Click here for her surveys) and I thought that it has been a long time since I did a site survey for this site. I’m not sure if anyone on Twitter slagged Dana off for having some wank material surveys or not, or whether that is just reserved for me
Anyway, if you have a couple of minutes I would love to get your feedback which always helps the site move in the right direction. No question is required, just answer what you want.
