Topic: Ideas for Aronson stack?

Hi! I know the Aronson stack, and have recently gotten a pretty good grip (forgive the pun) on the Zarrow shuffle. Including, but not limited to what is in Simon Aronson's books, what are some of your favorite routines using the a stack? (I have been working on a variation of John Mendoza's Ambitious 1-2-3-4-5, using a stack).
Thanks!

'Everybody's Lazy' and 'Madness in our Method' are two of my favourite memorized deck effects from Simon Aronson. Some of his stack maintaining routines from 'Try the Impossible' are quite nice, and useful too. Darwin Ortiz's 'Zen Master' however, is probably my all time favourite.

I like Lie Sluthe (I think that is the name) from Bound to Please. I also like his Topsy Turvy and Some People Think, but the handlings took too long to locate cards that I cut the handlings down and now are very simple. But other stacked tricks I like are Zen Master by Darwin Ortiz and Ackerman's Opener (probably my favorite memorized deck trick). It is possible to do this trick without a Tetrastic Stack such as the Aronson. Ackerman printed a version that someone sent him in Las Vegas Kardma. The only thing that is different is the cull isn't in there and the calling out of the memorized deck is tweaked to be more impressive and less repetitive.
