What was the first thing you ever saw or read the description of that absolutely blew your doors off and you HAD to learn it? Mine was Tony Hssinis Beggining magic video. When he stuck that deck of cards in that bag and jammed a pen thru it (I believe it was a pen) w/ a string and pulled out the selected card I about fell outta my chair! period!
