I want to know what cult classic you first followed. (Even if you didn't know it was a cult in the first place.)
I think that my first cult was a TV Show re-run through the 80s called: 'Monkey'. It was a Japanese show, dubbed in English, Kung-Fu fighting, quasi-religious...
It began each show with these words:
In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the Sun and the Moon all worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. That first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said, "With our thoughts, we make the World". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!
What was your first cult classic: TV Show? Band? Movie?
