A blog about skepticism, atheism and the freedom of not believing in irrational or magical thoughts. I am not going to use this blog to attack religions, but instead talk about how throwing off the mental shackles of belief has been a freeing experience.

First Loves Blogfest
Here are my first loves
First Album I loved: Thomas Dolby "The Golden Age of Wireless"
First Movie: Star Wars (I have no idea what "A New Hope" is...;) )
First Book: The Hobbit
First Person: Harder, I mean after all the first people you love are your family. So let's go with first person outside of your family. And that can only be...
Specifically, Yvonne Craig's Batgirl from the Adam West Batman TV series.
What's not to love? She is smart and kicks ass. Plus she rode a purple motor cycle before Prince was even born (ok, I might need to re-check that date but you get what I am trying to say. ETA: Ok he was 8-9 at the time.)

Great choices! I love that you loved Batgirl!ReplyDelete
Thomas was a topnotch, intelligent music producer. "Wireless" is a great album. And that campy Batman TV show was all the rage when I was an early teen and I was firmly on that bandwagon.ReplyDelete

Well Done! I love the photo and your love of Batgirl how fun!ReplyDelete
Stars Wars, yes, huge love of this epic series~ Great fun to read your list!
I think I read The Hobbit first, but it was the Narnia books that really stuck with me.ReplyDelete
Ha- we have two of the same favorites. Sweet!ReplyDelete
I have to admit, I thought Adam West was the best Batman and his BatGirl was the shiz. Loved her and that show.
Capital choices my friend!
Excellent pick with Star Wars! Yes, the original, before Lucas started monkeying around with everything :) Great choice of book too, but I'm biased :)ReplyDelete
Oh, love Thomas Dolby. And yes, Batgirl!ReplyDelete
"...the first people you love are your family." Not necessarily ...ReplyDelete
Great choices, although I've never seen Star Wars.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The Hobbit is one title I expected to come across often. It's such a landmark book.ReplyDelete
You must have two blogs! That or I am seeing double...ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.
Yay for The Hobbit! That was my choice too. I've seen it quite often today!ReplyDelete
Loved The Hobbit! So looking forward to Peter Jackson's take on it. :)ReplyDelete
Thomas Dolby has some excellent music. Something different no one else was doing. I wish he would have put out some more stuff.ReplyDelete
@Stephen he has been putting out stuff over the years, and great stuff too. He is just not very main stream. "Astronauts & Heretics" was also a favorite album of mine.ReplyDelete
Cool, I enjoy Tolkien books, although they came to me later in life :)ReplyDelete
Sharing the Love!
