I can beat that easily...
if you take away the 'blindfolded' bit, anyway...
But seriously, that looked like complete witchery with how fast it was. Mesmerizing to watch. Great job to Tommy Cherry!

I guess I'm spamming on this thread now :D
I recently got back into MBLD practice after a seven month break. My current PB is 12/13 in 57:44. Yesterday, the second attempt after the break was pretty fast (7/9 in 25:56). So I decided to try 17 cubes today. Unfortunately, I really struggled with memo and recall, so I went 4:31min over the hour and didn't expect too much. But when I removed the blindfold and found all (!) cubes solved, the time was the least of my concerns. It is such an amazing experience to get a perfect MBLD attempt with so many cubes. I can't wait so see how far more practice will take me in the coming weeks.

Starting a few weeks ago, I finally started to put some practice into 4BLD, getting my times down from around 15 minutes to 10-11 minutes, and have even managed a few sub-9 minute times (all unrecorded except for this one: 4BLD - Sub-9 (YouTube)). For comparison my official WCA comp PB is 22 minutes :p
But I've never been able to get any sort of consistency, and so getting a mean-of-3 has continued to elude me. Until today... I wasn't specifically going for the mean, but was still going slower and safer I guess. I messed up my memo on the 2nd cube with 2 centres from the same face coming one straight after the other. But during execution I was able to figure out which was the bogus letter and repair the memo. When I saw the 3rd successfully solved cube, I was so relieved. Finally I have my 4BLD Mo3 - 11:17.05.

Mark 2 of "How to put some magic in a 15puzzle+ blindfolded" that I posted there:
This time I did a magic square blind without the additional 16. (If you want to know how I "found" that magic square, just read the description in the vid.)
