Is there anyone above the age of 12 that does tutorials?

I've been all over youtube looking for someone who acts or sounds like they have a clue as to what they're doing. I'd like to trust some of the videos but for the most part, I'd really like to find someone with some experience.

I've been doing some sanding on my Storebought cube and some lubing and it isn't doing much good, I'm now at the point to where I'm rounding the inside edges to make it resemble the curved edges of a Haiyan Memory cube as that might help it stop locking up.... even though it's still slow as sin because it's grippy and stiff.

Currently using CRC Silicone lube and a metal file, I also have 320-grit sandpaper at my disposal.

>Implying that 12 year olds can't be experienced cubers
>Implying I needed a 4chan-esque implication technique that neither solves nor answers my question.

Pestvic's video is broken, I've pm'ed him over it at Youtube and I don't think he's gotten to it yet. I'd be using it before anything if it worked.

High voice =/= bad tutorial. A 9 year old could have more cubing experience than a 20 year old. The problem is, 90% of people who make tutorials have no plan, and no %$&ing clue what they're doing, regardless of their age or what they sound like.

I don't really get the second and third paragraphs of your post. They don't seem relevant to what you're talking about.


By the way, not everyone's voice magically breaks at 12. You can find "high voice" people up to the age of 16. A perfect example, Justin Bieber.


Triple ninja'd but I think my post actually helps.

The second and third paragraphs of my post explain why I'm looking for a tutorial...

...and from personal experience, kids can be extremely vague on giving directions and being clear on how to do what it is they're instructing.

There are actually tons of people who are "older than 12". You just have to look a bit. I know it seems as though only 10 year old dudes review cubes but ya just gotta look a bit.


Off Topic: BTW, Justin Bieber's girly voice is gonna cost him later in his life...

Well...I was a huge fan of the Fat Boys back in the 80's. I appreciate the art, definitely. If we ever meet up in a comp, I promise to put something out there for ya.
