Streetcar Sundays – 93

Over the next two weeks my posting may be limited,  and even if I do post there is a chance that it could be vanilla. As you are probably aware by now,  on Thursday I leave for Tokyo for a two week vacation. There are a lot of places that I want to visit,  some that are well known and others that are not so. One of the trips that I have planned is to a place called Kamakura,  but there is so much to see there that I might take a second trip. I’m sure at some point I am going to get lost or get on the wrong train or something,  but to me that’s what makes the trip fun.

Anyway,  underneath this weeks photo are two more music videos of a band I am going to see. You might have guessed already,  I’m going to see a lot of live music while I am there. This weeks photo is from 1960 and the town is Muncie,  Indiana. This will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS folder.

Now my final entry regarding the music that I am going to see while in Japan,  and perhaps this is the most important one. Now it isn’t fair to say that this is the reason for the trip,  however I did plan the trip around when these guys are on tour. The girl who is pretty much the lead singer is someone who I have to see,  even if it is with the band and not solo. I firmly believe that this girl is going to be a superstar. Her name is Aina The End and she performs with her band,  BiSH. Here she is doing a solo song.

The band I discovered two years ago and they have gone on to become huge,  basically selling out every concert. Here’s the rub with this though,  I paid $300 for tickets to two shows that they have in Tokyo,  but they are fan club tickets that I bought through a third party,  there’s actually a chance that I won’t even get in if the ticket has a person’s name on them and they require ID. I won’t even get the tickets until I get to Japan so I’m taking risks all around. It’s worth it though,  there are plenty of other gigs I am going to,  I just have to keep my fingers crossed that I can get in at least one of the two shows. Thankfully they are at separate venues.

Is that a newspaper he is using or is that a hairbrush? By the kicking of her feet and the pained look on her face,  at the very least you could say she knows how to  “Act”  when a brush is being applied,  feet in motion and everything!! Yes,  I know it is a newspaper,  we don’t need the spanking police 🙂

From Southern Illinois in 1952.

Can you believe we are up to picture number 90 in the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking series? Just click the link to see all 90 of them.

I was finally able to transfer all of my data over to the new machine,  so I should be able to now resume some regular posting. The picture this week is from Carlinville in 1960.

For a newspaper clipping,  the quality of this photo is actually pretty decent. You don’t normally get really decent newspaper clippings where a photo is concerned,  but I think that you would agree that this weeks offering is pretty good.

We go back to the year 1957 this week and the spanking photo is from Fort Myers in Florida.

Streetcar Sundays – 88 - A Special Treat

It is very rare that one finds a full page on the Internet featuring a MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic. They do exist,  but I haven’t found one myself for about three years now. What us collectors are forced to do is enlarge,  manipulate and crop the spanking image from what we find. There are those rare occasions though where you find a hidden archive located in an online library and it turns up a super sized photo from the above named play. So what I have done here is crop the spanking photo  (convenient for picture poachers)  but I am also posting the entire sheet which is huge. Just click on the smaller image if you want to download the full sized version of the full page.

The play is from Chillicothe in 1953 and will be added to my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking folder.

Streetcar Sundays – 87

So tomorrow I leave for England for my brother’s funeral,  it is going to be a really tough trip I have no doubt. The most stressful part is that I am the last remaining member of the family,  and I have roughly three spare days to make decisions of the family belongings. There isn’t much I wouldn’t think,  and I can bring back all the old photos and maybe trinkets like rings,  heirlooms etc,  but most everything in my brother’s house I am going to have to give away on the fly. And that will be it,  when I return to America,  whatever I have will be the sum total of the family possessions. It’s a bit depressing really. I’ve decided to read the eulogy at my brother’s funeral,  it’s going to suck but I have to do it,  he was really important to me.

Anyway,  during my absence I will pre-post a weeks worth of updates for you in advance,  which you can see in the photo below. All interview segments are finished now so I will start to upload them.

As I have a few posts to make I won’t waste any time. This weeks MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo is from Battlecreek,  MI in 1951. What I like about this one is that it is obviously a rehearsal,  but I wonder if it is a script he is holding,  or that famous  “Child Psychology”  book depicted in that Norman Rockwell image?

My trip to the UK is now planned,  I arrive on the 26th and will return to the USA on July 2nd. My itinerary is as tight as a gnat’s chuff,  on the 27th I have to meet with the police for my Brother’s belongings,  plus close his bank officially and his housing. The funeral is the 28th in which I am going to try really hard to read a eulogy for my brother,  I’m not sure if I will be able to do it,  but I’m going to try. That will leave me two days after the funeral to try and do something with my brother’s belongings. This will be my last shot to get family photographs,  whatever my brother had will be the remaining piece of our family history. I’m really hoping that he has our parents wedding album.

Everything else I have to give away,  I can’t really bring anything back to America with me. He might well have my record collection which will suck to give away,  but,  I have to be practical about this. There’s going to be so much to do in those two days,  all with a heavy heart. I guess I can buy a suitcase while I am there and stuff whatever I can in there,  or in fact maybe just take my brother’s suitcase. That’s not something that I am planning on though.

The flight cost was really painful as well. I had saved up $5,000 for a trip to Japan later this year so thankfully I had money put aside. That is pretty much what the funeral is costing with all the added extras,  plus whatever I have to pay for the reception afterwards. Then it came to the flight and hotel and holy snot,  $2,000 for the flight alone!! Thankfully I was able to get a hotel for around $450 for the duration of my stay. It’s going to come to roughly $8,000 all told,  but I budgeted $7,000 for it so it isn’t too far off the mark,  the flight was the killer as I was expecting it to be half of that.

Here is my plan for the next two weeks. I’m going to post two more parts of the interview with Ophelia De Havilland during the next week,  then when I am away I will pre-post some more sections of the interview as well as a photo for Wednesday and Sunday. I’m going to have very limited Internet time while I am in the UK so I will primarily use Twitter. So if you want to keep up with me posting pictures of my hometown then be sure to follow me on Twitter. RICHARD WINDSOR’S TWITTER. I had kind of hoped to get to my old neighborhood for some fun but I don’t think that I will have the chance. It would be nice to just stand in the street and remember where all the spankings happened on that street,  especially the best spanking that I ever saw of a girl I hated. It isn’t something that I have ever written about as it doesn’t go with the flow of this blog,  but if you ever listened to the interviews that I did with Dana Specht then I did tell the story on one of those interviews. Even to this day I smile as I recall hearing the sounds of a spanking,  and then curiously,  without having ANY idea what was happening of course,  walking in the door to see whatever was going on. It was such a treat to see my own personal Nellie Oleson face down over her mom’s knee,  sky blue panties on display,  receiving an onslaught of her mom’s palm. I didn’t get to see much of it before I was told to get out of the room,  but I saw enough and listened to the rest  😀  (Yes,  the concept is included in my latest story,  MOTHER SPANKS DAUGHTER  –  OVERHEARD)

Anyway,  onto the weekly MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic.

In reviewing what I have left in my folder,  this one caught my eye,  only because it leaves the door open for some interpretation. Full disclosure,  the spanking being shown is exactly what you see,  from the play,  as it was written. My interpretive view has nothing to do with the play,  it’s just what I see.

You could be mistaken for thinking that this is an outtake,  the girl looking over her shoulder saying  “Look,  you’ve got to spank me harder than that”. The guy coming in the scene with his hands up saying  “No,  no,  wait,  get up,  let me show you how to spank this brat”. No need for the spanking police,  I know that is not what is happening,  I just like to use my imagination from time to time.

I’m afraid that the photo this week isn’t going to go down as a classic,  but I also can’t lie. Despite the pic being a very bad copy,  there’s just something about it that really catches my attention.

I’ve studied it a lot trying to put my finger on it,  and as you will see in the second of the two photos that I have tried to increase the visibility of the image. Unfortunately this will be one that I will have to keep in my back pocket until I can find a much clearer photo of this spanking.

I think what it is,  is that even though this is a spanking on a couch,  her legs are still prone in the air,  perhaps that is the one thing that caught my attention in this photo. It could be that as I gave my FIRST EVER SPANKING while I was seated on a couch,  that the photo has touched some distant memory. Anyway,  I’m sorry for the quality,  however,  I personally like what we can see in the structure of the image below. The photo is from Littlestown,  PA in 1955.

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

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.
