The prompt over at Theme Thursday this week, or last week I guess*, is "reveal.
Well I guess, for some strange reason, the first thing that comes to my mind is a woman in a revealing dress. If you're upset by the gratuitous use of pictures of scantily clad women, I'm sorry. I guess it just reveals I'm a guy.
This is Shauna Sands. Now given the way she's dressed some might say she's not all there. Then again others might say it's evident she is all there.
Shauna was a Playboy playmate apparently and used to be married to Lorenzo Lamas, the son of actor Fernando Lamas. Now, there's some revealing facts.
Also when I think of "reveal" I think of the excellent movie The Prestige with Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. It's a film about competing magicians who each try to outdo the other. In the movie we learn that the three parts of a magic trick are "the pledge, the turn and the prestige". The prestige is in effect revealing the illusion. Indeed the movie unfolds in the same way with somewhat of a surprise ending. I won't reveal the outcome. But I will recommend you rent this movie. What I can reveal is that David Bowie played a small role in the movie.
While I'm on the subject of movies, I also think of the Wizard Of Oz. Why? I remember, as a kid, being just as disappointed as Dorothy, the Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow must have been when the little dog Toto pulled back the curtain to reveal an old man pulling the levers and knobs that operated the so-called Wizard of Oz. "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" he bellowed. But to no effect. The illusion had been dashed, the trick had been revealed.
*Theme Thursday has altered it's approach. Instead of issuing it's weekly prompt on Sunday for participants to post the following Thursday they now "reveal" their prompt on Thursday and invite participants to post any day of the week. Since I'm used to participating Thursday, and you're used to reading it then, I've decided to continue posting Thursday, thus retaining the integrity of the title "Theme Thursday".
