I form a sentence from my letter pair words for edges and just say the letter pairs for corners. It all goes to my auditory loop. I wouldn't say I'm "super consistent" though.

7x7x7 BLD: 37:21.20 [20:21]

Wow, that was nice - a new PB by over 3:30! For the weekly competition. It's funny, I had forgotten what my old PB was, and I thought it was much faster than 40 minutes, so I was hurrying to try to beat it. Then I looked it up and realized my PB was still over 41 minutes before this. :)

First 3BLD success with my new corner memo method. Just a question, if my corner memo was FVTBHDX, how would you guys remember that? I memo corners last then solve them first, so maybe audio would be best? But how would I memorise that audio?

Well done. :)

Yes, audio might work well for your corners.

A rather simple way of forming sounds is to pair the letters, and either say the letter pair how it is, or add a vowel to make the pair into a 1 syllable sound.
For example, you could memorise the letters: FV TB HD X as "fev tub had x", or "fav tab hed x"... there are many different ways.

A more detailed description is here.

7/9 at Danish Open 2012 in 57:58 (within time limit!!)

After the attempt I was quite disappointed as the memo was really rock solid and I was expecting to see 9 cubes solved. But one cubes had 2 flipped edges and another one was scrambled (obviously execution mistake...meh).

I still consider this an accomplishment as this is the first time ever I tried 9 cubes and as I had also problems finishing 8 cubes in time at past competitions.

The biggest amount of cubes I've tried outside of official attempts is still 3, lol. :)

6x6x6 BLD: 25:06.10 [14:30]
New PB! I still have over 2 1/2 minutes to go to catch Jakube's UWR, though. But my execution was almost 2 minutes faster than his! It seems like all that 8x8x8 BLD practice has really sped up my execution on obliques, which I think is why I suddenly got so much faster at execution.
