First Loves Blogfest: A Wicked Love

First of all, I must give thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this blogfest. Thanks Alex!

My "firsts" might seem a bit unconventional, but that's because I was a pretty weird child to begin with, and is in no way, shape or form, a reflection on my parents. Bless their simple hearts, 'cause they tried their best with me. 

First Movie: Jurassic Park

Aw man, I loved this movie. I remember going to see it with my buddies and getting freaked the fuk out when the dinosaurs started killing people left and right. It was awesome! I've seen every single one and I still think about them today. This movie further incited my love of dinosaurs and I probably collected every single dinosaur merchandise imaginable. 

Until I realized these extinct behemoths were nothing compared to the mystical creatures of Pokemon. Long live Pokemon! 

First Song: Going Under Evanescence. 

Love Evanescence! Love Amy Lee. I was a fan of this band since day one and I am still a fan of them to this very day! In my opinion, Amy Lee has THE best female pop rock voices of all time. 

First Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Seriously, you guys should know this. I sing this novel's praises almost all the time. No other novel in the history of books has left the impact on my life that this one did. I love the story, the characters and absolutely brilliant writing. If this novel were human we'd most definitely be married. 

First Love: Sarah.

What can I say about Sarah that hasn't already been said (I blogged about it). We knew each other since we were five and we became a couple when we were fifteen, but apparently I wasn't good enough for her so she cheated and now we're over. But, yeah, she was my first love--I won't lie. Sometimes I still think about her and, truth be told, I will never forget her. I mean, how can you forget the person you lost your virginity to? 

And those are my firsts. My first movie, my first song, my first book and, of course, my first and oh-so-tragic first love. 

Have a great day and I can't wait to check out your firsts.

Some great ones here. Harry Potter books got my sons head out of comics and into books. I think he did that for many children!

Jurassic Park is awesome! It was actually on TV a while back and I'd forgotten how good it was!

Harry Potter is always a great choice. :D

Danielle B. said...

Jurassic Park will always be one of my favs.
Cute story about Sarah.

Jurassic Park is a classic. Love the scene when the T-Rex is coming and the water in the glass starts shaking. Such great suspense!

I suspect no one really forgets their first love. I doubt Sarah forgot about you. :)

Cassie Mae said...


And love all your loves. Going Under was is on all my playlists and Jurassic Park is on my special shelf. :)

Hugs to you on your broken heart

My firsts were during the time of the dinosaurs. Nothing to remember... Okay, so you pulled my leg.

I will share one of my firsts, a crush I had on a boy named PJ. I recently found out that everyone knew I was crushing on him, hard! Glad no one tore my world apart back then and laughed at me about it.

Hey Allison, isn't your avatar the Black Mage from Final Fantasy? LOL, I love FF too.

elizabeth seckman said...

Bad Sarah! Her loss. You're a talented guy.

Carrie Butler said...

Jurassic Park! I haven't seen that movie in ages. The little dinosaur that hissed always freaked me out! LOL

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

And the effects in Jurassic Park still hold up today, almost twenty years later.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

Andrea Teagan said...

All great firsts! And no.. there is no forgetting your first in that regard :)


ryan field said...

I still like to watch Jurassic Park, lol.

But I think first loves tend to be highly overrated :) They say everyone should be in love at least six times in their lives. I don't know who said that, but I heard it somewhere and never forgot it.

Heather M. Gardner said...

Sorry I'm late.
But did you ever read Jurassic Park? Well worth your time.
Great picks.
Thanks for sharing with us.
