On Monday night, which as iTricks told you was Houdini’s 140th birthday, Craig Ferguson took a little time to explain the difference between magicians and illusionists. It is not exactly the most adult (or mature) humor on the ol’ Interweb, the guy is on in the middle of the night for a reason, so be warned.

Sad news from Vegas, white tiger Mantecore has passed away. Most famous as the animal that injured Roy Horn on stage, it was Roy himself who broke the news on the Siegfried and Roy Facebook page with a touching tribute to the cat. Mantecore was 17.

More from Vegas, the Las Vegas Sun’s John Katsilometes has comments from Murray Sawchuck about being chucked from Nathan Burton’s show; he thinks his friendship with Burton’s ex-producer may be to blame. Nathan Burton still is not talking.

And from Suburban Chicago comes a nice feature on Jeanette Andrews in the Daily Herald. Among the topics discussed are her artist in residency experiences and collaborations with scientists. The 24 year old may not be a familiar name (yet), but you will be able to see her when Masters of Illusion runs later this year on CW.
