Well, as I once said, 'Abracadaver!

Which would be one of the many many reasons you are a BT engineer not a professional magician*

 

 

*fairly certain you once posted that you were stuck waiting in your van somewhere.

I haven't been an engineer for, oh, close to two years now.

I am now in the world of the self employed, fly by the seat of your pants and hope for the best etc.

Sometimes I'd kinda like to be somewhere, stuck in my van, again.

A quick Google suggests that the tiger sanctuary at the Mirage hotel in Vegas is still there?

I visited about 15 years ago, but surely this isn't sustainable in the future given the advances in efforts to shut them all down by the likes of Carole Baskin et al. I agree that a tiger's place is in the wild, though there are many more tigers in captivity in the U.S. alone than there are in the wild across the entire world, and conserving those wild populations is becoming challenging. Tigers are still hunted sadly. Finding a solution is tricky, but the days of Siegfried & Roy/traveling circuses that use tigers in live entertainment are pretty much gone.

Interestingly, he beats out Captain Tom to become the first ever "indirect covid" DDP hit, ie someone who didn't die of covid but was only picked because of it. Because Roy died of covid and Siegfried was a unique for a "surviving halves of famous pairs" theme team.

I just hope that where ever Siegfried and Roy may be that there are endless Tigers there and not a single thing they do will be able to calm them. That is all.

Both still in Vegas, naturally - Siggy on a slab for now, while Roy's presumably still hanging out in an urn in his chum's bedroom.  I wouldn't be surprised if they both get shipped off to the Secret Garden at the Mirage now, so your wish may come true.

I take the implication here is they were slightly more than 'professional partners'? 

 

Oh just realise they were a couple but split in 1998, seems weird to keep your exes ashes.

No information elsewhere yet but according to Teller, of Penn & Teller, magician Mark Wilson has died.  Widely credited as being the first major "television magician".

The magician and founder of The Magic Castle, Milt Larsen, recently turned 90 years old and they had a virtual bday celebration for him. In the video, there are some older notable stars including Wink Martindale and the Disney songwriter, Richard M. Sherman.
