Alex J. Cavanaugh is the brain (Yup. He's a brain) child of this fun and entertaining blogfest. We are supposed to post our first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. So here goes folks!
(I had a problem with this one since Meg Ryan is my favorite actress and she doesn't star in my first loves movie.) My first loves movie is Vertigo, peeps! Hitchcock was awesome! I mean AWESOME! It stars Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. When it was released Vertigo didn't receive great reviews, but it has stood the test of time. Check out this psychological thriller and be amazed at Hitchcock's awesomeness! The main character, Scottie Ferguson (a detective) suffers from vertigo after almost dying while trying to apprehend a criminal. He receives a call from a man claiming to be his childhood friend who wants to hire him to keep a watch on his suicidal wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). Scottie soon finds himself infatuated with Madeleine who claims to be possessed by the spirit of her great grandmother. There is much more to the story than this, it is a true masterpiece.
My first loves band is and always will be The Beatles! They set trends that still apply today. These guys were amazingly talented. Their personal lives seemed to always be in turmoil, but their music spoke to the masses.
My first loves book (I know ya know this one)is Black Beauty! Anna Sewell showed me a new world. This is the world of living inside a story with the characters. She wrote this book for vets and horse owners. What a fantastic author. If only she could have known, she might have written more wondrous stories. Have you read Black Beauty?
My first loves person was Dad. He was such a lovely man. And he adored me! He was an Irish gentleman. He passed away over fourteen years ago, but he will never be forgotten. Dad is responsible for my love of reading. That man always had his nose in a book. And he was a genius, Dad taught himself calculus. Yep! He was the most honest person I have ever met. How I love him and can't wait to see him again one day.
