Students of the history of technology will tell you that the Internet as we know it today was built on personal webpages full of dog and cat pictures. Even today, puppy and kitty videos are a mainstay on sites such as YouTube. We are going to help keep the glorious tradition of Internet cat videos alive by passing along this tour of the NevadaSPCA’s facilities featuring many playful dogs, cats and a mustachioed Master Magician Lance Burton. Don’t worry, there is even a rabbit for any of you out there looking for a new hat jumper.

If you are interested in many, many more pictures of animals needing new homes, you should really follow Lance on Twitter.

For the benefit of our international readers, who have not put up with several weeks of election commercials, it is Election Day here in the United States.

Lance Burton Headlines Upcoming Charity Show

Posted by Michael on August 26th, 2014

If you want to see Lance Burton, you have to keep a sharp eye out for his occasional charity performances. From Ben Stone’s Twitter feed comes this poster, advertising a benefit show for the Heaven Can Wait animal shelter in Las Vegas. The show, Variety Live, features several magicians including Kevin James, Victoria and Sos, Stan Allen, Jan Rouven, Xavier Mortimer and Lance Burton. Non magic acts include Stone, Jasmine Trias and others. As sharp eyed iTricksters will also notice that the shows is also honoring Tihany. The show is at the Orleans in Las Vegas on September 14. Even though it is only a couple of weeks away (more or less), there is little information to be found about the show. We tried the Orleans site and Heaven Can Wait’s website, but we have not found out any more information than can be gleaned from the poster. Still, we figure that any chance to see Lance Burton is worth posting!
