Streetcar Sundays – 84

There is a bit of nostalgia tied to the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic this week,  which I will get to shortly.

Before planning my trip to Japan I was waiting for this band to announce their tour dates so that I could see them while I was there. They are a pop-punk band and their audiences are insane,  I really wanted to experience it. They announced their next tour and they will be in Tokyo twice during the original time that I had planned anyway,  but here’s the problem. In the last year and change,  this band has blown up,  their last single went straight in at number 1 on the Japanese charts,  and they have another single coming out next month which I will think will be even bigger. They also just sold out a 12,000 arena,  which is insane because I would watch them online playing to a couple of hundred people. So even though they are playing Tokyo,  there won’t be a chance in hell that I can get a ticket. Regardless though,  I am very happy for them that they hit the big time. I’m going to try the ticket re-seller’s because even if I have to pay 4 times as much,  it is a one off and I doubt if I will ever get the chance again. The girls from the band have cameos in THIS VIDEO where they watch girls from another band get spanked!! I’m serious!!

So on to the spanking pic for this week.

It is fair to say that when I paid $75 the other week for access to an archive,  this photo here was one of the reasons that I justified it. There was a tiny preview image that told me it was there,  and once I found a few other previews I was like I have to join. This photo appeared in The Asbury Park Press in 1952 for the Toms River production of MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS. When I first moved to America in 1987,  I lived just outside of Asbury Park so this became my local paper. The image is huge so click on it to download the full sized version.
