Streetcar Sundays – 98

Today I am going to go searching for a good MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo in the hopes that I can get a good one for the 100th edition. All that I really have left are B rated ones, though there are still the odd one or two really good ones.

The 98th episode comes from Haddonfield in 1963.

Streetcar Sundays – 97

This is going to be partially vanilla, so if you are only here for the spanking pic then just scroll down past the video for this weeks spanking offering. I promise, there is a spanking pic in the post, it is just at the very bottom after I talk about 2018.

2018 has come to an end and for obvious reasons it was a very bad year. When my brother grew sick earlier in the year it was obviously bad, but I have to be honest that at the time I had no idea that it was going to take his life a few months later. The early part of this year I spent a lot of time talking to him, and while his health was going to prevent us doing things immediately, we did make plans to go to Iceland in March and then we were planning on going to Japan for the Rugby World Cup in 2019.

As you all know, after my brother passed away in June I decided to go to Japan a year earlier than I had planned, and I’m still heading to Iceland in a couple of weeks time. It was a really tough year, much tougher than I thought it was going to be. Getting to a stage where at 55 years old I have no family left, it just wasn’t something that I was prepared for. So while I was virtually absent for the early part of the year, you just never know what people are dealing with. On top of that I also just got laid off to bring 2018 to a crashing end.

It has changed my outlook a bit to be honest with you. There is no mistaking that I can be somewhat aloof anyway, you only have to show me an ounce of disdain before my personal morals kick in, it isn’t something that I have ever accepted, nor will I ever. The thing is though, there is literally nobody I dislike, people have their own reasons for being the way they are, the same way that I do. Since the summer though I have been much more laid back in my approach, I simply wish everyone well and live my life engaging with what makes me happy. I gave up fighting many years ago, there’s no blood left to draw from this stone. While it might be foolish to question my own mortality at such a young age, I don’t have a good family track record to fall back on.

So with that said, there is this Japanese band that I have loved for a couple of years now, and when I got back from England after burying my brother, I think I had a bit of a mid life crisis, lol. Watching their videos was therapeutic to me and kept some happiness in my life, and then a spark just went off, I was watching a video and in a snap decision I said fuck it, I’m going to Japan to watch them live. That same night I got in touch with a third party ticket agent, he assured me that he could get me tickets for two shows, I sent him $300 and the very next day he had purchased two tickets for me.

It really seems crazy to me, at 55 years old I was going to fly half way round the world on a whim. I got the tickets for a band before I even booked the flights and hotel. Moreover, they weren’t even a big band, just a niche band with a loyal fan following. Though it is true that just prior to getting tickets the band had just played to 12,000 people, and they had their first number 1 in the Japanese charts. The shows I was going to were auditorium shows though with a limited audience. Before I say anything else, I don’t regret it one little bit, it was the craziest thing I have ever done and I loved every minute of it, in fact I might do it again in 2019.

There was also partially a reason that made me act on a whim. The girl who is pretty much the lead vocalist (first girl to sing in the video below) I had this strange suspicion about. Something told me that sooner rather than later, she was going to progress as a much bigger star in Japan as a solo artist. I wanted to make sure that I saw the band in their current form. As it turns out though, after I had been to Japan to see them, they blew up in a major way. They played a concert to 17,000 fans, and then they were awarded a ‘New artist of the year’ award at the annual Japanese music awards. That wasn’t all though, as part of their award, they were automatically nominated for the best new artist award. It’s a big award for a band that once played during intermissions at wrestling matches, and at shopping malls.

I woke up yesterday and turned my PC on, when I visited Twitter I had to rub my eyes. On the left hand side, under trending, the number 1 trend worldwide was BiSH. I did a double take, yes, BiSH, stylized in the way the band name themselves. What in the ever loving…….

It took me a couple of hours to work out why they were trending number 1 worldwide, and it was a combination of events. Firstly, they performed at the event and wowed the audience. Then came the vote, they didn’t win, and that was primarily the reason that they were trending, the feeling was that they had been robbed of the award. Once the result was announced they also won the audience over by hamming it up and fake crying, and then when it came to the photo shoot all the other bands were posing, while BiSH hammed it up yet again. So I have changed my mind about the lead singer leaving the band, I think that they are now about to embark on a pretty magical 2019. Their dream is to play Nippon Budokan, and I have a feeling their dreamed may be realized this year. To me, it is like watching a family member graduate.

Here are some photos from when I saw the band in November, and the video below that is their latest release in front of 17,000 fans. The first concert that I went to in November was the first time the band performed that song live.

Now I did promise you a MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic, but I also wanted to tidy up 2018 so I hope that you didn’t mind a vanilla post. This image is from 1954 via Franklin Community High School.

Streetcar Sundays – 96

Yesterday I rebuilt my SPANKING PICS site so that is now back up and active,  just click on the link in the name to go there. It is 90% complete,  I just need to change the banner and some minor background items working,  but it is fully operational now. I will work on my vintage site shortly.

I’m sure people are wondering,  what is going on. Get used to it,  starting in the new year this blog is going to be very active when I become self employed to start the year. We will have close to daily updates,  with perhaps the only deviance from that will be when I post a story so that everyone gets a chance to read it.

Speaking of stories,  I have a 20,000 word manuscript ready which will be the first book that I publish in 2019. Now for regular readers of this site,  you won’t need to buy it as all of the stories are currently on this site,  and will remain so. However,  each story that is included in the book will be re-written and expanded a bit. They will still basically be the same story,  I will just fluff them out a bit as first impressions are always important. So while I will still be writing stories for this site,  I will also write longer stories to publish as an EBook. Now while I don’t expect anyone to buy the book as you can get the stories for free anyway,  if you have Kindle Unlimited then I would appreciate some folks downloading the book for free so that I get a nice early ranking 😉

Onto the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking photo for this week,  and I’m fortunate enough to bring you yet another rare 1970’s version of the play. They are few and far between and this one is from Neoga,  Il in 1971.

There are only a handful of Streetcars plays from the 1970’s after the name had been re-branded to  “It couldn’t happen to a nicer girl”. So in the photo below,  are you thinking what I am thinking?  Dude,  that little skirt and half slip are just begging to be pulled up,  she is almost flashing her panties already. BTW,  when I was a younger man,  ALL of the girls wore a half slip under their skirts,  something that is a rarity nowadays and something that I love included in a spanking scene.

Streetcar Sundays – 95

Can you believe that I am at the 95th posting from my MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking collection? Not only that,  I still have about the same amount still left to post. It might not be an exact number as I am sure there are some in my folder that I have already posted but forget to move into my posted folder,  but at a good guess I still have seven dozen left to post. That’s not counting the fact that I generally find more as time goes on.

Anyway,  enough chitter chatter,  here is this weeks edition from Mount Morris,  Illinois in 1959.

Streetcar Sundays – 94

Tonight I was looking through my Streetcars folder and I still have over 80 pics to post,  that’s right now,  I’m sure I will find more.

As you can tell,  I am now back from my vacation to Japan. It was something that I had been wanting to do for a long time now and as all I have ever done for the last ten years is attend spanking parties,  it was a welcome change. It is going to be the first of many trips. Following social media during my trip was quite enlightening as well,  it helped me define some things.

The MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS photo this week is from Grand Union,  Sacramento in California from 1952,  and below that are three more pics from my trip. I’ll write more about my trip later in the week.

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 🙂

Streetcar Sundays – 91

From Southern Illinois in 1952.

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

Streetcar Sundays – 90

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.

Streetcar Sundays – 89

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.

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