Tool of the Year: Derek Merdinyan

Aldo Colombini has come out with his version of the Dangerous Monte effect, and just like a sure bet on eventual bad weather, the Cafe idiots are jumping on the bandwagon, including a real pro named Derek Merdinyan.

I will quote him verbatim from two different posts:

"I will perform this trick tonight!"

And:

"If you can feel that glass bottle or spike in the bag when you hand it to a spectator, then you know to bail out. Really if you cant stop a trick when you feel it, then maybe you shouldnt even be on stage..."

Perhaps you should take your own advice when it comes to the lack of practice, DM! Regardless of how simple it is, if you perform a trick the same day you receive it without coming up with outs for the situation you describe, you are nothing more than a simpleton hack looking for a possible lawsuit, and perhaps it is YOU who shouldn't be onstage!

It's the self-proclaimed "pros" on chatboards performing for live audiences like this that ruin magic.

This is Derek Merdinyan here, thanks for the compliments. I was 16 at the time I wrote that and have been performing a very similar version of the effect for years so I have experience performing a similar version of the effect which was even more risky if performed incorrectly.

I performed it for some magician friends that night and they all quite enjoyed it, unlike some other people who jump to conclusions!

Thanks for the very late reply. Your response served only to bolster my argument.
