A new masked magician has appeared on television, but this Britain’s Got Talent performer seems to be more in the mysterious L’Homme Masque vein than the effect spoiling Fox TV special type. And just who is he… or she? According to this Extra.ie article (via MSN) maybe it is a return on a recent contestant!

Meanwhile, over in China, The Nanjinger has an article on the increasing popularity of magic in modern China.

Finally, The Daily News reports how the management of the Columbia Theatre in Longview, WA refused to buckle to pressure from animal rights activists and went on with a performance by Jay Owenhouse and his tigers.
