A few today. New Dayan + MF8 4x4x4 arrived this week, so my return to 4BLD today included:

1. 5:24[2:01] B' R U f U f L' R' U F' U u f' r2 f2 F2 D f B R2 L u' f2 R2 u' L2 R2 u R' F r2 f r' L' D' u B' r U' u2
2. 4:36[1:59] Lost the scramble.
3: 3:59[1:30] Lost the scramble! 8 solved centers and 3 solved midges after orientation!
4: DNF(3:50[2:04]) B2 r' f2 L B' U2 u2 L2 D f' F2 L2 f2 u2 B2 u f' r F D f r F' f D2 F' r f2 r' B F' u' R u2 D' U' r2 F U' u' - two centers off I think.

Also managed a nice 1:00.01 3BLD solve on the train home - memo PB of 14.45s

EDIT: 4x4x4 sighted has suffered BADLY - averaging around 2 mins now!

If there are vowels and is audio friendly, I would love to, I sometimes uses images too, if I can't make a sound out of it I'll just generate an image. lol.
I'm trying to use more audio - I feel like I need to keep changing my memo system to keep it fresh and I'd love to be able to use it as well as Noah does!

Congrats! Sub-20 should be easy for you with a few more solves :)
I hope you mean sub-30 I am very far away from sub-20 in my opinion.

Edit:

New 5x5 BLD PB again! Every attempt is a new PB! 29:25.25 Finally Sub-30! This is my 4th consecutive success, so I have a 5BLD average of 5 now!

Ao5: 33:03.02

(DNF)
36:50.84
32:02.01
30:16.22

5x5 BLD

Memo : 28:53.23
Solve : 29:37.64
Total : 58:30.87

L' Uw D' F Fw' Bw' B' Uw2 D2 F Bw2 Lw B R Fw Rw' Fw Rw2 U' B R2 Dw' Fw' Bw U L2 R' Fw R Dw2 Bw Dw Bw2 R2 B U Dw' Fw Lw2 Dw' Rw2 U' Uw2 Lw' Rw2 U R' Dw2 Fw U B' U D2 L Fw' Uw' Bw Uw2 D B'

My first 5x5 BLD and it was a success. Wasn't expecting to see a solved cube at the end. Figured out how to solve the T centers after closing the eyes.

I won't forget this feeling for my life!

3x3 MultiBLD: 6/6 (46:34)
Memo: around 31:30

Amazing result for me...first time I'm attempting 6 cubes
I had tried 5 cubes only once before (2/5)

Next goal: 8/8 (sub 1)
Another NR waiting for you :) Way to go!

First 3BLD average of 5 in a long time...

2:17.01, (DNF(1:25.96)), 2:14.90, (2:12.37), 3:01.09 = 2:31.00

I'm seriously getting used to putting in BH comms I know. I also make up random orthogonals on the spot quite easily.

Edit: Rolled it to 2:29.45 average of 5. 2:14.90, 2:12.37, 3:01.09, (DNF(1:39.92)), (1:43.49). The 1:43 was nice.

FIRST SUB 1 WITH BH COMMS!!!!!! (for corners) 56.69. I don't know the memo time, but it felt pretty fast.

Scramble: F' R U B' U' R2 D R' F R2 U R2 F2 U2 B2 D' F2 D R2 U
Memo: Edges: X-Country ViLlage HeadQuarters UG ("ugg...) DaT ReaDy, Corners, "HAy" "FaR" "DoW"
The bolded corner sounds are when I used comms. Memo was smooth, and I also had no recallin problems. I was thinking ahead the whole time; it was super awesome!!!

Also, 1:34.36 average of 5. 1:38.99, (1:58.31), 1:34.97, 1:29.13, (56.69)

Comms are awesome! They are beginning to feel natural!

Great job! Not even an extremely easy scramble.
