Herba and her friend Die Pö are still at it with their community blog project that appeals to the creativity in their readers. Going strong for 15 (?) months at this stage, Herba and Die Pö set a creative challenge every month, picking a random topic. Every time I read the challenge posts, I think “oh, I have *got to* take part this month!” And more often than not, time fritters away and I have not completed the challenge. Herba’s reminder caught me unawares, the other day. But then my ambition was piqued, and I spontaneously created a new shrine these last two days, just about ready to take part in the challenge before the deadline looms. This month’s theme was “Dance”. Yep. Not a problem for a fangirl with a vivid imagination
and access to old photographic evidence of Mr A’s dancing prowess…
The disco ball is ready…
And Mr A is throwing shapes on the
imaginary dance floor. There’s a little homage to RA’s early dancing days in musical theatre in there, too.
Yeah, right, I know that there were no dancing scenes in Strike Back. Why, if I may ask? I am sure Porter would look great on the dance floor, or under-cover with a female agent, rumba-ing at a function… In any case, the scene where I stole this image of Porter always gave me the giggles. This is the moment in SB Episode 1 where Porter has arrived at the location where Katie Dartmouth is held hostage. He reaches into his Land Rover to honk the horn while holding his Iraqi “captor” at bay with his gun. In doing so, he moves his hips to the left with a little “kick”. Cha-cha-cha… Enough to get my imagination going, anyway…
(Had to replace the gun with a flower, though – no firearms on the dance floor, please!)
So there. My contribution to Herba and Die Pö’s community blogging project.
This RAPS needs a home! If you are partial to Porter snake hips, Elvis poses and magic moves á la Lee Preston, leave me a comment here or RT my corresponding tweet on Twitter, and you are in the raffle. I will make this a quick one
because I have other shrines to reveal and draw the winner tomorrow, Friday 27 May, at 8pm BST.
Good luck and keep rocking 🙂
