    First album bought: Meet The Beatles. My dad had this great idea that we as a family were going to get "musical." The idea was that once a month, we'd go to the record store and each of us would pick out something. My mom bought an Andy Williams record, my brother bought The Man From U.N.C.L.E soundtrack, I bought the Beatles, and my dad bought a Lefty Frizzell album, which I ended up listening to more than he did. Dad's great idea was soon forgotten, because that's the only time I remember us going to the record store.
    First 45 (yeah, I'm an old fart [​IMG]) : Don't remember, because I collected and had hundreds, but it was probably by the Beatles because I loved Meet The Beatles so much.
    First concert: Alice Cooper's "Billion Dollar Babies" tour, in Lawrence, KS. I loved it! It was also the first time I ever did acid, which of course, is why I'm so warped now :).
    First movie seen in the theater: It was either Mary Poppins or Santa Claus Conquers The Martians (then again, this could be why).
    First Grown-Up movies seen in the theater: In Cold Blood (with my parents, who couldn't find a babysitter) and a double feature of Bonnie and Clyde / Bullitt (on my own).
    First movie seen at a Drive-In: Don't know, since we were raised at the Drive-In, but the first ones I remember clearly are Hell's Angels On Wheels and Born Losers. Dad loved those biker flicks. He didn't like Easy Rider though. My brother and I loved it!!
    First movie that thunderstruck* my soul: Oh, 2001, no question.
    First music that thunderstruck* my soul: Seeing Peter Gabriel's Genesis perform "Watcher Of The Skies" and "The Musical Box" on The Midnight Special in 1973. That was when I realized that there was something beyond the Top 40 out there *for me*. Everything since, mainly discovering beloved music such as Kate Bush and Happy Rhodes, not to mention meeting my husband in 1982, came as a DIRECT result of those amazing minutes spent watching TV. My entire life would be radically different, if I hadn't watched that program.
    First pre-recorded video: Music - Kate Bush's Live At The Hammersmith Odeon. Film - Francis Ford Coppola's One From The Heart.
    First CD: Kate Bush "The Kick Inside" long before we actually had a CD player. The CD itself was mislabeled and just said "Kick Inside."
    First laserdisc: Music - Kate Bush's The Whole Story. Film - Wim Wender's Until The End Of The World.
    First DVD: Film - L.A. Confidential (also before we had a DVD player). Music - Still no Kate Bush on DVD (DAMN!). I think it was the Sarah McLachlan video collection.

    Oh, I wish I could offer some of my firsts that truly meant something to me. Passing through the doors of perception. ...

    But here are a few:

    • first 45rpm single: "I Want To Hold Your Hand" when it was first released (my sister bought it for me, as she would all my Beatles records for the next year or so).

    • first LP: Introducing the Beatles on VeeJay (the Americanized version of the Please Please Me album on Parlophone)

    • first (and, so far, only) film ever to influence the way I think and see the world: guess! (You get three chances.)
