I'm thinking about finally learning how to solve a 3x3 blindfolded. Is Noah's tutorial the way to go or should I learn from some other one like Zane's OP/OP tutorial?
Noah's is the best, IMO. It explains things amazingly well. Super thorough and clear. I was blindfold solving within a few days of watching his videos.

I just assembled a guhong, lubed the core with weight 5 and pieces with weight 2, now it's really fast. That's great. But there are 2 problems.

1) the corner cutting is a little lacking. Line to line max and reverse is around half.
2) it's really loud! In fact, it's louder than my huanying. Really.

What's going on?

Hey! I did an average of 100 using qqtimer this morning, and it showed my ao100, but i am pretty positive that i boke my ao50 average somewhere in there too, it doesn't show it though and i don't want to have to do it all by hand. Does anybody know of a good average calculator?

In QQtimer, just go to show timer options and one of them options allows you to use averages of 50s.

What algs should I learn?

I know OLL and PLL, some COLL(H, some Pi, random algs I learned intuitively), and a few WV cases. Should I finish up COLL and WV, or is there an alg set that I'm completely skipping over?
I would say finish WV and COLL (minus sune cases). From there you can do two things.

1. Learn a ZBLL set, like maybe the COLL set you are best at recognizing
2. Learn some OLLCP. It's so incredibly satisfying to be able to skip diagswaps and force U perms. I think it would be especially helpful for you since you're really into OH.

I would start with 2GLL, only a few bad cases and even those aren't horrible.

Is just doing lots of solves the best way to get faster at bigger cubes?
Yes, but make sure you are paying attention while doing them; don't just solve mindlessly while thinking about other things. Actively watch for new/different ways to solve different arrangements of pieces, always make an effort to get more efficient.
