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.

Just succeeded 2x2x2 BLD in 4:29.74. Nothing overly impressive, but it was my first try. I used T-Perm for all the corner swapping.

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.

^Congrats... I'm in awe atm. Do you use something similar to Pochmann or is it the normal 7x7x7 method?

I'm too slow to be able to execute a 7x7x7 solve in 17 minutes solving one piece at a time, Pochmann-style. I use mostly BH - optimal commutators solving two pieces at a time.

Wow, sub-40. Congrats Mike!

Awesome, one step closer to 3x3 BLD.

First BLD success, 5:33.28
I memoed the edges a lot faster than usual, and had a much smoother execution because of it.

Congrats! You will continue improving, I'm sure.

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?

"FaV TuB HooD X" and repeat it in your head over and over again until you're done with corners.

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.
