Learn the cull. Seriously. It's the thing where it's super easy to do, but effing dificult to master. You want to see a superb routine that utilizes the cull? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpzEET-yNHk starts at 2:38.
Since I've stopped performing regularly, I've found myself becoming more and more obsessed with moves from Erdnase. I think anyone who wishes to claim the title "master move monkey" should get all of the Erdnase material down.
I second By Forces Unseen, third Erdnase, and recommend Richard Turners' ,"Shifs, Hops, and Magical Passes." The Turner One Handed shift is a fun move to practice but will take a TON of practice before it is in any way practical for a performer. What more could a Move Monkey ask for!
1. If people like cars, let them do whatever the hell they want to do relating to cars.
2. If people want to collect car parts that don't fit together, let them do that as well.
3. Generally, I think said part collectors are guys experienced with what they're "collecting". If some guy who doesn't even know how to change a tire starts getting on "Yahoo! Answers" or something trying to collect a bunch of parts, well...
But... Erdnase and BFU are your best bets. Apocalypse also has a bunch of hard stuff scattered between it's volumes.
