First Loves Blogfest!!





Alex J Cavanaugh  is having another Blogfest! This time is is first loves: movie, music, book and love! Here are mine:



First Movie: The Neverending Story/Fievel Goes West


He's the luck dragon!! Creepy...kinda. hahaha



I seem to remember loving these at the same time and wanting to watch them constantly. I don't know what it was about Falcor or Fievel that I loved so much, but they captured my imagination.


First song/band - The Academy Is



I remember really loving this band. Particularly their album Sanit. It's probably the best ever. I love it. The lead singer's name is William Beckett (front and center) and I just thought not only does he have a pirate name, he's adorable (and later inspired a character I named Slate). I loved every single song on this album. EVERY ONE!

First book - Since I always say The Lord of the Rings, I'll tell you, BEFORE I read LotR, I read a book called Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier in the eighth grade and lovvvvved it! I have sense had the intention of reading it again now that I am 22 to figure out what I loved so much about it. I don't really know now. haha.



First person - hehe.

That would be my Aladdin. :)


If ever there was a man truer to any Prince Charming, it would be him. I don't know how other relationships are, really...except mine. So sometimes, I feel like I'm in a book. My Aladdin does things like...kissing my cheek before he goes to bed, even if I'm asleep (usually, I'm in this zombie stage where I can't actually function, but I know what he's doing, lol) and telling me he loves me. Or, again when I'm in the zombie stage, he pulls up the covers and tucks me in. It's a sappy sort of sweet, but I love it! lol.


He hates pictures, so I have to sneak them. haha.

Okay, now go check out more First Loves!

  1. Your Aladdin sounds really sweet - in contrast to 'Rebecca' which was spooky and chilling, especially the weird Mrs Danvers.

  7. Fievel Goes West! You know that song, "Dreams to dream..."? I sing it to my kids before they go to bed. LOVE IT!

  8. I just watched an American Tail a few weeks ago for the first time in years. I so remember why I loved it!

  9. First loves: what a fun idea! I don't know if I've ever seen The Neverending Story all the way through. It's one of those that I sorta missed even though everyone else in my gen loves it. The actor who played Atreyu was at Chicago's Comic Con last year (my first foray into conventions) and it was weird to see him as an adult - he's in his 40s!

    1. YAY Neverending Story!! I actually googled it, and it's based on a book that is NOTHING like the movie, so they renamed it. lol.
