18 Months Without Practice (Yikes!?!) / Father’s Day Shout-Out to AZACH’S WORLD

Hey, gang. It’s been 18 months since I’ve posted a video, and just about the same amount of time since I’ve practiced cubing. Maybe a random solve here or there when they kids find a cube somewhere. But that’s it. The simple explanation: I got really, really busy. All good stuff. Just very distracting and time consuming. Not much spare time over the past 18 months for hobbies.

Cubing is not like riding a bike. You don’t do it for a bit, and you forget. Quickly. Below is a solve I posted as an excuse to accomplish something else entirely. You can see how rusty I am. My recognition is abysmal (let’s be honest, it was never great); my technique and finger tricks are embarrassing; and I forgot several cases (or at least they didn’t come reflexively). Oh well. I’ll start practicing again, and I’m sure the muscle memory will come back.

So, why all of a sudden crawl out of the woodwork to post a crappy solve? Because it’s Father’s Day, and my son has been begging me to. That’s why.

He’s suddenly much more interested in my channel because he recently started his own YouTube channel: AZACH’S WORLD. He posts narrated clips of him gaming — Minecraft, Roblox, city simulators, and the like. Through the channel, he’s really coming out of his shell and finding his voice. We’re really proud of him.

We’re also really protective of him. So, we’ve disabled comments on his channel. Please be nice to him here and on my channel. He’s 9, and he’s just learning and figuring this all out.

If you have a minute to click a few videos and even subscribe (what’s the harm?), you’d make a nine-year-old very very happy!

And now for that rusty solve:

Terrible, I know….

      Not often enough. Been working on stuff in the background. Like restructuring the whole site. Notice the new drapes?
