Streetcar Sundays –72

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.

What’s Another Year?

Yep, that time has come around again, yet another year has come and gone and I turn 54 years old today. Fifty bloody four, holy snot, where did all those years go? It isn’t all doom and gloom though, the older I get the easier it is to let go of things. I’m very content where I am right now, the people who I am important to mean a lot to me, as do the people who are important to me. There is no hate in my heart. Que sera, sera. Time has taught me with the loss of various family members of the last few years, that there will always be people there for you. You don’t even know it until it is there, but they were there all along.

It has been said to me before that by repeating the same thing it is like you are trying to convince yourself it is true. So let me say once and for all, as I posted on TWITTER today. My life is blessed, every day I am thankful for what I have. I grew up on a council estate in England and now, every single day, I see the New York skyline. It never gets old and as pompous as it may sound, I’m reminded each day that I made it, I bettered my life!!

So no more preaching, much love to you all, and now in celebration of my 54th birthday, here are some birthday spanking pics done in the famous vintage style of Richard Windsor. They will be added to my WINDSOR’S BIRTHDAY SPANKINGS folder.

Windsor’s Sunday Candids – 62

Man I really need to start posting more often, I have so much to share with you all. On the plus side, while my life may be busy now, perhaps ten years from now it won’t be as busy. Of course by then we may well have purged all vintage photos that are in existence. Just take from that that I intend to be around in ten years still blogging, I’m already in my 11th year.

This weeks Sunday Candid is a new one from 1951. When I say new this photo isn’t included on Harry’s database for stage spankings, and he is the premier resource for this genre of spanking material, but I just looked at his CHILD WONDER page and he doesn’t have this one listed so this will be a new one for him to add. Click the link though for important information on the spanking synopsis in this play.

As noted though, the play shown here is Child Wonder, and the play was done in Butler, New Jersey in 1951.

This will be added to my VARIOUS SCHOOL PLAYS folder.

Windsor’s Sunday Candids –61

After a gorgeous Saturday I got home yesterday and actually had a couple of hours to surf the Internet for a bit. One thing that has been sadly missing from my life as of late is the time to just sit back and search for unseen spanking photos. Now don’t worry, I still have 100’s of them as it is, so you will never go short.

Yesterday only turned up four, and three of them were sorority style paddling photos, but there was also this one which featured a classic OTK spanking. Isn’t it a shame that fun spankings like these don’t happen any more?

This will be added to my WINDSOR’S SUNDAY CANDIDS album.

Windsor Wednesday Classic –112

I’m just back from the Boardwalk Badness Weekend party and I am tired as all heck. It didn’t help that I was stuck at work for 12 hours today. Regardless of that though I had a great time and I have a new story to write. Of course that means I now have two stories to write, being that I still haven’t written the one from my READERS POLL.

There is also good news on the horizon, I am starting to put together my idea for my elaborate spanking film that I hope to make this year. Having given it some thought, what I would ideally like to do is make a 1980’s film. I’ve got a lot of work to do, but the original premise comes from the first spanking I ever gave. (STORY HERE)

Now that is just a premise, though I will be recreating the initial spanking as a part of the film. The rest of it will be ideas that I have long held. It isn’t likely to win any awards, but it will be my vision and what I want represented on film. How invested in this am I? Well let’s just say that I want it to be perfect. At the moment I haven’t been able to find the right pair of white nylon panties for the film, however I did purchase two other vintage pairs from the 1980’s that I will use in the film. The way I look at it is this, if I can’t find what it is that I want, at the very least I can get the next best thing for the girl/s to wear, and if I do get what I want then there will be at least 3 costume changes.

 

I’m pretty excited about the film, all I need to sort out is which model I can do this with. Mischa from Punished Brats would have been perfect, so I’m looking for someone with her characteristics. Who knows, maybe I can get in touch with her anyway for a one off.

Anyway, onto the vintage spanking photo for this week. It looks like the guy has a rear naked choke hold on the girl, the perfect hold to deliver a few swats.

????????????????????????????????????????????????

Hello Sailor

I realise that I haven’t posted for a while, but I just paid a hundred bucks to renew the site for another year so I’m not going anywhere.

Today I am headed down to the annual Boardwalk Badness Weekend party, so I hope to get some new audio interviews for you. Until I return though, here is a photo from my archive. I will also look to post on Sunday as I have my laptop with me.

The Vagabond King

I don’t ever recall seeing this lobby card from the Vagabond King before. It may be out there somewhere, but it is a new spanking image for me.

Streetcar Sundays – 70

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.

Meet Me In St. Louis

Unfortunately there isn’t much that I can do to improve the quality of this image. It is a newspaper article from my vast collection of newspaper spankings, and I will be shocked if this has been posted anywhere before. I realize that the picture quality blows, but what I do find intriguing is that if I’m not mistaken, the girl getting spanked has had her dress raised for the spanking.

It is hard to tell, but if you study it as long as I did then I do believe that is the case.

I will add this to my VARIOUS SCHOOL PLAYS folder where it will join the other three Meet Me In St. Louis spanking pics.
