I have something of interest to report to all PhilRAR devotees. It is a minor incident, but I feel it is worth reporting, and serves to prove that PhilRAR, much like God, is in the details.
Not too long ago, I was walking down the road with awesome Cult Leader celticsilver
and the Honourable PhilRAR himself. What a privelage! As if this wasn't enough, PhilRAR then performed what can only be described as a (very) minor miracle. No sooner did he press the amazing traffic light changing button beside the crossing but the green man appeared, and we were free to cross, thus proving that even the humblest of traffic lights gladly submit to the will of PhilRAR.
Let us give joyful thanks!

The fame of Phil RAR in Might-Be-Major Indie Sleb circles is growing, and now transcends borders. One Eddie Argos, of The Art Brut, making their American debut to wide acclaim, inquired after the health of Phil RAR at tonight's gig when he was informed of my acquaintence with Our Leader. I responded that Phil RAR was well, and that he requested Mr. Argos's presence in London, as he has not seen Art Brut for some time. They will be returning to British shores post-haste.
P.S. We missed Phil RAR Day. Shocked and appalled. No canoes for any of you.

Many of you will now be aware that in celebration of Phil RAR Day (April 2nd), where followers have the chance to give thanks for the existence of Our Great Leader, Cult Favourites Luxembourg and Lupen Crook will be playing the night before in his honour, at Flook and Frog respectively. I expect, of course, as many of you as possible to be in attendance. The evening will be even more special as it coincides with the first anniversary of Cult of Phil RAR Day (April 3rd). Yes, that's right, my friends, this very cult is almost a year old! I am overwhelmed with emotion! Current Mood: celebratory

As many eagle-eyed followers will have noted, our very own Leader gets a thank you in Roger Sargent & Anthony Thornton's book, 'Bound Together', on account of his general brilliance (and, er, like, interviewingness). A Cult Salute and a chorus of 'Long live Phil RAR's, if you please! However, I, Humble Cult Leader (and don't you forget it, no1fanofphilrar
) feel it necessary to point out that, due to a publishing error, a vital page was missed out from this work. On on side was a full-page dedication to our Great Leader, and on the other, an advertisement for Mr Thornton's next project: "Cult Forever: The Definitive Story of Phil RAR and How He Changed The World". The greatest work of our generation, I'm sure you'll agree!! Current Mood: now actually posted correctly!

Cult of PhilRAR - now with catering!
It has taken several days for me to regain my composure sufficient to write this entry, but last Thursday I was granted a privilege for which I am entirely unworthy. Our Leader favoured me with the gift of elevenses in the form of toast. Lovingly fashioned, hand-crafted toast, prepared with care in The Leader's own toaster, lavishly spead with the finest marge and cut on the diagonal, like in good quality seaside boarding houses, each slice carefully overlapping the other with that an elegant precision and attention to detail that is pure PhilRAR.
It was very good toast Current Mood: grateful

Uh? What kind of a cult is this?!
I mean not only has no-one updated in like FOREVER but our Revered Leader was a Rock Star again on Thursday and no-one has even bothered to tell the rest of us about it so we can be suitably in awe of his, like, greatness.
Just cos I cant make it doesnt mean that I'm not still his number one fan y'know. But the rest of you? You all were there and you havent even bothered to show even a *bit* of respect for Our Leader. You are so not on the boat now I bet. I BET. Not even Danica! Hah! Cept the people in America of course cos they ahve a *proper* excuse for not updating they havent seen him since longer even than me and that is AGES.
So anyway, yeah, I you totally all shouldnt get to be members of a cult if you cant even take it seriously or anything. Go and like, join one of those band cults or something. Our Leader is so much to good for any of you. Current Mood: blah

In response to an incident involving drunken LiveJournal posting that was insulting to Our Great Leader, two Cult of Phil RAR followers have had their membership revoked. Panic not, wayward followers, this is merely a suspension. To restore your postions, I recommend a (sober) public apology, and a promise to improve your servitude to the One and Only Phil RAR.
Thank you for your attention.

PhilRAR is beloved of all creatures. He's like a socialist St. Francis in a way. Or Mowgli in a parka.

gratuitous cult post
Late Thursday night, I, a humble servent of The Cult of Phil RAR, had the fortune to enter into a philosophical debate with The One and Only Leader. (Contain yourselves, Fellow Followers! the Green-eyed Monster is a dangerous thing.) Topics up for discussion included the significance of The Promised Land as a visionary utopia, how the Cult of Phil RAR will, within a generation, bring an end to world hunger, and, excitingly, my own role in The Cult.
The Leader, in his great wisdom, suggested that I, your lowly messenger, was a 'gaylord', or rather, 'Lord of the Gays'. Due to my lowly intellectual might, I was foolish enough to disregard this insight. However, I now see the light. Following various incidents involving gays and 'Notting Hill' (I didn't cry, I swear, and not just because I have to save up my tears for 'The Snowman' or I'll get dehydrated) I have discovered that The Leader was right all along. Never again will I doubt the Great Phil RAR's amazing abilities as Guru and Prophet.
Have you ever doubted The Leader only to then prove him right? Has The Leader ever provided you with brilliant insight into your inner soul? Do share your tales here, Fellow Followers. We are a community after all.

by popular demand (ahem)
I know many of you have been following the effect Our Leader has on society, influencing music preferences and lifestyles all across the land. Well, now even the NME have redesigned their magazine to correspond with our very own Leader's journal: philrar
. You all will have noticed with great excitement The Leader's decision to start including Select personal ads in his entries, and from this week, the NME pay tribute to this inspired stroke of genius by introducing a personals page. As a result of The Leader's influence, the quality of the NME has risen by approximately 403.7% and we at cultofphilrar
are anticipating a feature on The Leader very soon! (Go on Anthony Thornton, I know you're dying
to.) Current Mood: hungover, this makes no sense.

No score for this post August 30 2005, 8:26 PM
I was saying to Lupen Crook only a few weeks ago that Phil RAR is so mesmerising when he plays I feel as though I am in a cult during performance and he is the leader. Lupen then looked at me a little funny but I swear that if Phil ever decided to go all Charlie Manson on some asses I'd be the the first brother wielding a knife! Scary but true....he is that good.

"you know how i feel about Phil RAR"
In order to help advertise this great Cult of ours, I would like all of you to leave a little quote explaining just how much The Leader means to you for cultofphilrar
's userinfo. This is rather like the requests that go on in personal journals, only, of course, much better.
For instance -
"I love Phil RAR even more than I love crack!!" (Anonymous, East London)
"I would consider sacrificing a date with Jude Law to save Phil RAR's life" (Certainly-not-me, London)
Actually, less like the second one, more like the first one. You get my drift.

First Camden, then the world!
This evening, Our Leader performed at KOKO accompanied by celebrated pop-rock outfit The Rocks
. The show was a brilliant success and the sold-out crowd were enraptured.
Amongst gig-goers were members of Cult Favourites Luxembourg
, including singing legend The Shah. He was heard to say something like
, "I usually wouldn't bother with gigs like this, but I couldn't possibly miss seeing The Leader play a rare saxophone performance."
Although record company executives are no doubt hounding The Great Phil RAR as I type, fear not Fellow Followers, Phil RAR will not be distracted from his important role as Leader of this very cult. However, tonight firmly cemented Phil's position as Everyone's Favourite Minor Indie Sleb.

A girl I used to go to school with liked to go to Alex Parks meet-up days. (For those of you who don't recall, Alex Parks was a contestant on 'Fame Academy' who sang emo Coldplay covers etc.) As well as occasionally stalking Ms Parks, my old school chum and her companions enjoyed meeting up for no particular reason other than their shared love for the singer.
Similarly, a new phenomenon of Phil RAR meet-up days began in Cambridge on Thursday evening. In attendance were various members of the Cult, a couple of poor misguided fools who consider themselves above cult membership, some Cambridge natives who have heard the Word of Phil RAR and popular beat-combo Special Needs. Songs were played, drinks were had in honour of the Great Leader himself & cult members celebrated their love of Phil RAR with permanent marker pen.
All in all then, a joyous occasion and a fabulous success. Let's hope this wonderful trend continues!

When considering Our Leader...
I wanted to take advice on a point.
Do the cult feel that the nickname Phil "Cut Them To The Core" Whaite:
a.) properly represents the worshipful feelings we nurture for PhilRAR?
b.) will engender the respect that Our Leader so richly deserves?
c.) has adequate comedy value?
d.) is in any way truthful or representative of reality?
e.) is a scary name?
f.) could catch on with the greater public?
The more responses, the better. I think we should all take this quite seriously.
I put it to you, dedicated Cult of PhilRAR members, that it's time the Cult starts thinking about marketing itself more aggressively. We all know what joy the Cult can bring. It's time we start acting responsibly with regard to dissemination.
Thank you for your attention,

The Cult Is Not Dead
It's been too long, my friends.
I hope that, despite the quietness of the Cult on the internet, you have all been actively spreading the word of Phil RAR to the unenlightened masses. World domination awaits, fellow followers. As I type, kateclaire
is using her unfortunate geographical position to extend the loving arms of the Cult to the Land of America.
Speaking of America, yesterday Our Leader received a lovely jacket in the post courtesy of queenofalostart
from Boston. Although queenofalostart
is not a member of the Cult, her actions are clearly an inspiration. You don't see that sort of behaviour from supposed devotees such as... oh, I dunno, tropicalia89
? (Oh snap.)
British Cult Members will perhaps be fortunate enough to see Our Dear Leader on the television soon, after he was the subject of a documentary feature on the Cult of PhilRAR for Channel 4 (under the guise of a competition to open V Festival starring Cult Favourites Special Needs.) More details to come.
Oh, and Phil RAR got asked for ID in the Fake Wetherspoons in Angel. If that's not proof of his eternal youth and superhuman powers, I don't know what is.
