A day starts well when I wake up to the news that RA will be doing another Twitter Q&A (Thursday, April 2nd, 2pm – GMT, I suppose) – and find an e-mail in my inbox that notifies me a RAPS has reached its destination. Because that means I have the pleasure of posting a new shrine on my blog. Today’s RAPS was a commission by frequent commentator miapatagonia. Commenting here on-blog, Mia connected with fellow Californian and shrine fairy Kathy Jones. The two of them hooked up for the LA Premiere of BOTFA last year – which Kathy wrote about in a guest-post that includes a little bit of info about miapatagonia.
Anyway, miapatagonia coined the theme for her commissioned RAPS “RA in La la Land” – and stipulated an appearance of BAFTA LA RA (2013 – is it really that long ago??) in the shrine. Well, here we go:
Bling!!!! A shiny happy box of joy. So what does RA get up to in La la land?
That’s right, walking on the clouds, he is ready for an Oscar, while the Hollywood Hills have already switched to his name in big letters. (Look closely at that guard of honour. You might be surprised to see who has sneaked in…) He’s showered in gold-dust and…
… and the stars are at his feet. He really should have his own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Just a matter of time, maybe? In any case, on the cusp of another, very prestigious awards ceremony, I believe that RA deserves all of the awards.
Let’s hope I am clairvoyant.
There we go. I hope the RAlala RAPS fits right into Hollywood, amuses Miapatagonia every time she needs a bit of cheer – and comes timely and appropriately just before the Olivier Awards on April 12th, 2015.
PS: Special thanks go to the Irish postal service. It seems to have a direct connection to California and delivers packages expresso to the American West coast… Meanwhile, another shrine is on its way to Finland, presumably less favoured by An Post and delivered by donkey cart. Let’s hope I can present it, soon – commissioner Nokisuu has been waiting for it for eight months.
Guylty! The shame! Apart from that, another RAPS is almost finished as I am working through a number of commissions that had to wait while my office/work area was occupied. But the urge to shrine is strong at the mo, as is the supply of cool tins. Happy days…
