Streetcar Sundays – 73

So I have decided to go to the annual Shadowlane party this year. Now my plan had been to make one more video but I’m not ready for that yet, but I will have my audio recorder with me so hopefully I can make a few audio interviews while I am there. The new video I will probably do in February.

This week’s MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo comes from Indian River, NY in 1960. Looks like that bottom is nicely arched up for some attention.

Before I say anything else, let me point out that this blog has been going for over ten years now and I anticipate doing it for another ten years. There is so much that I have that I want to share that it would be impossible not to do that before I closed up shop. Point being though, I don’t ever envision not having this blog.

There is no denying that my interest has waned over the last couple of years, not with blogging but with spanking in general. I once said to a good friend that everything that I ever wanted from the spanking scene I got, in fact I got it ten fold. Being an older person you fully appreciate every opportunity that the Internet has provided, I’ve done virtually everything I ever wanted to do, and I got to do it to a point that I felt spoiled. There are still powerful scenes that drive me crazy and I can repeat them until the day I die, but I have to admit that I have become a little selfish in doing only the things that I enjoy doing.

It would be fair to say that I am a bit of a loner, but spanking parties bring out the best in me. For the most part my enjoyment comes from welcoming people into the scene. There are many people out there, and I dare say many who read this blog who have never been to a party as of yet. They want to, but they can’t take that final step to get them over the hump. A lot of it comes down to individual personalities, and for a lot of people that would stem from overcoming shyness.

That is one area that I think I shine in because I think that we are all equals, nobody is above anybody in the scene. I find it an honor to welcome people into the scene. If you have read me for a long time you will know that I refuse to take part in award shows. There is nothing that I have against them, in fact many of my friends love them, but I sit on the other side of the fence on that topic. All that stems from is my upbringing and my personality, I refuse to put myself on a pedestal. I’m not better than anyone, what I do appeals to a small fraction of our society and those are the people that I aim to please.

That brings me onto an article that JimC raised for me. Now I’m not going to link the article because in it someone mentions a friend of mine and what she went through, and that is a topic that angers me. However, there is a line from the article that really struck a bell for me, and that line was  “Playing to an empty house”.

Now what is playing to an empty house?

The discussion in question was about the longevity of spanking blogs. One theory as to why blogs come and go, and one that I can understand, is the feeling that you are blogging to an empty house. Now I’ve mentioned this many times before and this is the reason why I never did the love our lurkers community event. Whenever I write or post something, I don’t do it to get feedback. If what I write or post moves someone to the point that they feel they want to comment on it, then those are the comments that are like gold to me. One term that I love is the phrase  “Posting for cookies”. That is something that I try to avoid at all costs. In fact when my mother passed away a couple of years ago I turned the comment section off when I wrote about it, because I knew that plates and plates of cookies would arrive, lol.

Why do I mention this though if comments aren’t that important to me? Well it is quite simple, there are interests outside of spanking that appeal to me. If I find what I am doing is not appealing to the people I am posting it for, then my interests tend to gravitate to doing things that give me enjoyment as well.

You have probably read that I watch next to no television, save for one or two shows  (Hint:Game of Thrones tonight). With that said though, I have just recently purchased a subscription to Netflix and oh my word, what the heck was I waiting for? I find myself binge watching TV shows from all over the world. I’m currently obsessed with watching Japanese and Korean dramas, and once I have had my fill with those there are others from Thailand, China and Brazil just waiting for me. So I will be quite frank with you, part of the reason that this blog has not been updated frequently as of late is two fold. Firstly, my time is somewhat limited, but secondly, and perhaps more importantly, I have been using my spare time to educate my mind. So in one sense, playing to an empty house really doesn’t bother me, mostly because I want people to comment only if what I say or post has inspired them in some way. Secondly though, in a sense playing to an empty house does affect me. I get my 90 minutes of an evening and I sit there and internally say to myself, do I spend that time blogging, or do I watch another episode of that awesome Japanese show that I am watching? Catch 22 really. With that said, this blog will always remain open and I will continue to share with you the awesome collection of rare photos that I have. Hopefully what I said makes sense to you all.

Right, onto the photo for this week. It is a recent find and will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder. This one is from 1960 and took place in Portage, Indiana. I love the look on her face, which should be a nice treat for all of the fans of spanking faces!!

Streetcar Sundays – 71

It just dawned on me that this is the 71st photo in the series, that is a crazy amount and I have just as many still to post. Hopefully everyone still finds them as enjoyable. As you can see I am trying to pick the pace up again for posting, there was a period there where I would go weeks without a post, but I am getting back towards the old rhythm.

This weeks MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS pic goes back to 1953 and it is from Warrensburg, NY. It’s funny actually, but I have another one from Warrensburg in 1953, but it must be from a different state. Still, it is kind of neat that two different towns of the same name featured the same spanking in the same year.

Just a few weeks to go before the next party, the annual Boardwalk Badness event. But there are also only 20 minutes before The Walking Dead so I am going to keep this short 🙂

This will be added to my Men Are Like Streetcars spanking folder.

I’m currently in Las Vegas at a spanking party, but I’m giving my hand a rest at the moment so that I can put up the weekly Men Are Like Streetcars spanking pic. This weekend I actually shot a couple of videos which will be released soon with two girls that I haven’t played with before, more on that will be coming soon though. For now though we will go back to 1953 in Milwaukee, WI, for our weekly spanking pic.

This will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder.

By the way, I normally don’t like the book/newspaper spankings, but that book at least looks like it is going to be felt.

In spanking related news I have booked time off to attend the annual 50 Freaks party in Vegas, I just need to get my act in gear, book a flight and get a plane ticket. Hopefully America hasn’t imploded by that time.

Today, while the Superbowl was on, I did some searching and I was able to find half a dozen new Men Are Like Streetcars spanking pics, plus a few others of interest, so stay tuned this month for some great new photos. The picture below was one of my finds today and is from New Britain, CT in 1953. What I like about the photo is that it would appear not to be the girls first trip at the rodeo, she is well versed in the OTK position.

This will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder.

I’ve been trying to cram everything in that I can this weekend, which is a little bit tough because Ebay have a sellers promotion running right now and I have to try and get as much listed by the time that I go to bed tonight as I can. There is this mass of photos that have individual value and I want them all up today. I won’t spam you with them, but as it is a hobby of mine and I’m likely to make a career out of it, here are a couple of preview pics of some of the items I have listed this week. The spanking stuff continues below these photos from the 1940’s.

Even at 53 years old, there is one video game that I play. It is release week this week for the 2017 version but it has been a real cluster. I paid out $100 for the super deluxe version of FIFA 17, eagerly awaited the web app that comes with the game and is vital for building your team before the game starts, only to find out that they only invited a select few to the web app. It is quite a community storm because now, a large portion of players are going to have a major advantage on those of us who can’t get in. Mind you, at my age and with my reflexes, it wouldn’t have mattered much anyway  🙂

Right, spanking time!! How many of you dread those words?

I’ve kept my time on Fetlife down to a minimum this week since rejoining. I’ll pop in there from time to time to say hello and of course there are a lot of old friends who want to keep up, but I won’t be there for very long each day. I just need to have the profile active and ready. Today actually I posted the last spanking picture that I took when Pixie and I visited the city and I spanked her with the Empire State building as the backdrop.

Now for the weekly Sunday spanking photo ans as is normal for a Sunday, I’m going for a MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic. Now I know the story, and I know what happens, but my mind wants to think that her friend behind her has just had a helpful suggestion that she thinks will improve the spanking. Perhaps a hairbrush?

Anyway, the pic is from 1952 and will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder.

My goal today had been to do a bit of a vanilla post along with the regular Men Are Like Streetcars spanking pic. What I had intended to do was post a full review of the British TV series  “Accused”. Yesterday I had downloaded all of the photos from all ten episodes and I was getting ready to review each episode of what I consider to be one of the best shows that I have seen in a long time. Now while I can’t do that today, it was actually funny when I was downloading pics for the post.

Once I was done with the DVD I gave it away to a friend of mine, but as I was downloading pics yesterday it suddenly dawned on me, I hadn’t watched the final episode of series one, lol. I must have been so eager to watch Sean Bean and Stephen Graham in season 2 that I obviously skipped ahead and forgot to go back. I will still do a review and a non spoiler synopsis for each episode, but I highly recommend you guys getting a hold of it. Many of my American friends tuned in after I told them about it and almost unanimously they loved it.

Part of the reason for skipping the review today is that I am trying to catch up on Ebay. My goal has been to keep a thousand dollars of sales active at any given point, hopefully two thousand if I can ever get there, but the photos sell so quickly that it is hard to keep up with the demand. The good part though is that I am sat on thousands of old photos and the collection will grow and grow over the years to the point that one day I will probably be able to make it a career. I’m not thinking anytime soon, but maybe in ten years or so when I am ready to retire it will be a good time to have my own career to fall back on. I’m pulling in $500 or more per month based on a forward projection, but that is doing it part time and mainly on weekends. If this was something that I could devote four or five hours a day to, I could probably make it work financially.

Anyway, time for a spanking!! This week’s MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic is from the rather late year of 1965 and is from Cambridge, Ohio.

Here we go guys, I’m trying to get fully back into the swing of things and posting on a regular basis once again. I’ve mentioned to you many times, this blog isn’t going anywhere any time soon, I have a wealth of material to share with you all and I won’t be satisfied until I have done so.

Before the spanking photo this week, I just want to touch on a couple of vanilla items. Actually, you know what, I will post the spanking photo first, that way if you don’t want to hear my vanilla ramblings then you can just look at the photo and then go back to searching other spanking blogs. Under the photo though I will carry on with a combination of vanilla prose mixed with some spanking talk if you are interested.

This week’s MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo comes from Plattsmouth, NE in 1955.

First up I have a bit of early year end spanking news. This year is my tenth year of having this blog, think about that for a minute, 10 years!! It is one of the oldest spanking blogs out there, I think that there are about ten of us who have had a spanking blog for ten years or more. Anyway, every year since this blog has been in existence, the story of the first spanking that I ever gave has been the most popular story, year after year for every year I have had the blog. 1979  – THE FIRST SPANKING

This year is going to be different though, and like a presidential election I can call this result already, there will be a new story this year that will be the most read story of the year. Even though there is still four months of the year left, ELLEE’S STORY already has 50% more views than the second most read story which is the one above. ellee’s story has been read nearly 5,000 times this year while the first spanking has been read roughly 3,200 times this year. Ironically the story of ellee is also about meeting ellee for the first time and then playing with her the next time that we met.

Now some vanilla stuff. As anyone who knows me knows, I simply love old time music and films. It isn’t just spanking photos, this extends to my tastes outside of spanking. The other day I was listening to an old time British entertainer by the name of George Formby. George was a Ukulele player and was a huge star back in the 1930’s and 1940’s making many lightweight films showcasing his talent. As I was listening to him I also started to read about him and one thing that I never knew was that his dad was a top of the bill entertainer in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s. So I was fascinated as George Formby had always been a household name and I wanted to read up on his Father. Believe it or not, on Youtube there is a small collection of his Father’s recordings. So like a kid at Christmas I started to listen to them and I was blown away, for the primary reason that George Formby Jnr basically used the same act that his Father, George Formby Snr had used. Obviously the former refined the act, but it was basically the same act. Incidentally, one of the characters that George Formby Snr. created became the inspiration for Charlie Chaplin’s  “Tramp” character. What a small world we live in. Now I don’t expect anyone to be remotely interested in the recording below from 1910, but for my British readers, you tell me if the first few lines that you hear isn’t the same sound as the George Formby we all know and love, albeit perhaps just a little slower. In fact part of the lyrics in the first song he gets caned at school, lol.

George Formby Snr. also created the phrase  “It’s not the cough that carries you off, it’s the coffin they carries you off in!” and at the time of his death his diary revealed that he had full bookings already in place for the next five years. One final thing, I already own the box set of the entire known collection of George Formby Jnr’s recordings, it looks like I need to also start building my George Formby Snr. collection as well.

This morning I am probably going to listen to more of him as I sort through my vintage photos and before the England national football team bores me to death at noon USA time.

Windsor finally makes a return!!

Where have I been? Same as always really, a little bit of work out of State, constantly working on my Ebay page and smashing the snot out of it, as well as my normal working hours. As I have often stated though, this blog will always be here. I won’t always be able to update as frequently as I would like, but there will also be other times where I will be uploading daily.

Anyway, photo number 64 in the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking series, click the link for the other 63.
