Thank You to all of my 817 YouTube Subscribers

Hey, everybody! Antoni here with another milestone I have successfully reached after much toil.   As of yesterday, I just hit 817 YouTube subscribers and I am extremely grateful for the support all of you have given me for the past eight years I have been on this site. All of you have inspired me to create more content, especially my reviews of opera productions, concerts, musical productions, ballet productions, movies, anime, and cartoons. For that, I will continue to create more content for you all and I will not give up on the passion that I have for music, entertainment, and animation.   I also have an upcoming review of Mozart’s Don Giovanni live from the Royal Opera House and I am already finished recording the raw footage. I just need to edit it and by either today or tomorrow, it will be up on YouTube. It is just that I have been rather busy with university, considering that this is the orientation week. So, some of the content that I will produce will be released on a rather sporadic basis. However, that will not stop me from creating said content.   If you want to support me in making my channel grow, please click that link below and subscribe to my channel. I have a lot of great content to offer and I hope you can show your support by spreading the word.   That is all for now. Please do not forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and thank you to all of my 817 subscribers for your support and for putting up with me for the past eight years. Stay awesome, everybody.

My Happy Thanksgiving with 700 YouTube Subscribers

Hey, everybody! I know I haven’t been as active on YouTube as I should’ve been, mostly because I have been busying myself with making fanart on DeviantArt, which, mind you, I have been enjoying a lot. Additionally, I have also dealt with my fair share of academic priorities like my exams, which I have generally been passing very well, and my application to the American Liberal Arts College, Bard College Berlin, in which I will attend tomorrow’s open day. However, I just want to express my joy and gratitude of having gained 700 subscribers on YouTube and, in these trying times of juggling lots of activities, I am still very enthusiastic about this and I would love to thank you all for putting up with me for the past seven years I have been on YouTube and even for the past five years I have been an online reviewer. Since December is rapidly rolling around the corner, I see it absolutely fit to make reviews for the annual Red Ribbon Reviewers’ Month, as currently pioneered by my fellow online reviewer colleague, Eli Stone aka The Cartoon Hero. I have a lot of content I would love to share with all of you, my dear viewers and, as usual, do expect some opera reviews, album reviews, especially the holiday-themed ones, lookbacks and tributes to the animated TV show Christmas specials, maybe a few slams, and possibly some film reviews. Moreover, I will be spending my Christmas break in Cebu for a couple of days and in Hong Kong for the next several days with my family, thus making these review plans interspersed with the time I will spend with them. Boy, I do have a lot of things to accomplish. In spite of all that, I still want to thank you all for your time, patience, and willingness to put with me in everything I do. I will see you all in the next upload. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel, take care, and have a blessed, happy, and awesome Thanksgiving.

New YouTube Achievement Unlocked, with some Reservations

Hey, everybody! Antoni, here! I know I have been AWOL on YouTube, due to the fact that I had a lot of major academic priorities to take care of. I had one presentation to accomplish in History regarding the Baroque period, one in English regarding the Philippines, and one which I will do alongside my colleague in Chemistry regarding the usage of superabsorbent polymers. I apologize for my disappearance, but don’t worry, as soon as everything calms down I will continue to make more content most likely on Easter break.   Now in terms of my channel, I have some bad news and good news. The bad news is I have been stripped of monetization for now, as I did not reach the new 4000-hour, 1000-subscriber threshold. This is a major shame as I have been releasing content on YouTube for a span of six to seven years, yet in spite of my best efforts, it was not enough to achieve something like this. At least, I can rely on Steemit in terms of getting my content paid, so all is not lost.   The good news is, I have reached 604 subscribers. I am so thankful to the people who have followed me so far on my journey as a reviewer, actor, singer, and voice actor and for that, you are all awesome. I thank you so much for the support you have given me and I bless each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. Even when times get rough, I will not surrender and I will keep on going even after I reach 1000 plus subscribers. So, keep supporting, keep spreading the love, and thanks for making my time on YouTube very fruitful. I could not have accomplished this without your help.   Like I said, I am not going to disappear and I will keep going on. It’s just that priorities need to be set straight, things happen in real life, and I cannot deny nor ignore it. On top of that, I intend to review Rossini’s Semiramide live from the Met starring Angela Meade, Elizabeth DeShong, Javier Camarena, and Ildar Abdrazakov either on Tuesday or this coming Saturday, so look out for that. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful evening, please subscribe to my channel, spread the word about it to everyone, and see you all on the flipside. Take care. Subscribe to my channel, where I review opera, anime, cartoons, concerts, albums, musicals, and ballet

My Future on YouTube: Come What May

In the span of a day, I reached 544 subscribers. That is fifteen more awesome people, who subscribed to my channel and hopefully enjoyed the content I have to offer and for that, I thank you all and I wish you well in your lives. Usually, I would be all happy and enthusiastic that I reached 100 more subscribers to my channel, but I thought this “update” or lack thereof will suffice due to everything that happened. I know that the change in the whole YouTube Partnership Program where nowadays one has to meet 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time put me at a point where I was almost depressed, but I had this to remind myself. I should be extremely for all of the reviewer friends and the friends in general, who are passionate about the same stuff as I am, whether it be opera, anime, music, cartoons, or movies. On top of that, my main goal was neither fortune nor fame, even though these two sound exciting and wonderful, I cannot keep my hopes high nor be consumed and engulfed by fame too much, it was just finding the joy in sharing what I love to my viewers because if I didn’t start my career as a vlogger who makes reviews from opera to anime, I would not be here for all of the singers, voice actors, and actors who put in a lot of effort to the works they did, which range from excellent to mediocre to awful. For all that was and is worth, I am grateful, delighted, and blessed to know that there are people who enjoy the work I do, see the effort I put in despite the screw-ups, and seem to encourage me every single time and that’s something precious. Along the way, I even gathered tips and tricks from reviewer friends to true professionals in terms of how I should improve the overall quality of my video reviews. I know that the possibility for me to be a YouTube Partner, as well as posting my content on Steemit, all while balancing my academics, which by the way I received an average of B+ with the German equivalent being 2+ in the first part of the qualification phase, my acting career, as I am going to be performing Werther once again between Spring and Summer and between those seasons I have a new film role, and giving myself time to go to Behind the Voice Actors to obtain new and original roles for my own personal pride and joy, is for me to avoid doing a boring 9 to 5 job in something that I deeply loathe, believe me, there was one time I was an assistant in washing the glasses in a hotel far from Berlin and although I was paid rather well I knew this was something I was not going to do for a long time, or, even worse and Heaven forbid, move back to my parents’ place without anything to look forward to and I have been doing my damnedest to avoid that ever since I moved to Berlin at 20 years old. I know I was thinking about starting my own YouTube channel in my late teens after watching some rant videos with the main topic being what was wrong with Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel. Even before all that, I was on YouTube to watch cartoons, anime, opera singers singing different arias, and classical music pieces. Yes, my priorities were still centered around school and my prospective career as an actor, voice actor, and singer, but there was something on the back of my mind that told me, “Hey! Try your luck on YouTube.” I was invited by a former schoolmate to like his sister’s video of her singing for a contest and that was how I started being a YouTuber, yet I did not know what I was going to do. Like I said, at first I was an aspiring actor looking for gigs until I decided to do music-related reviews, while also putting in anime, cartoons, and movies in the mix. I enjoyed what I did and I still am to this day. In spite of all the crap going on, I have to keep my chin up and keep on going with the video blog-style reviews because the only thing worse than failing is throwing in the towel, sitting around complaining about the current situation, and doing nothing at all. Yes, my YouTube Partnership will run the risk of being lost. I know I might not hit 1,000 subscribers and several views in the span of 30 days. However, despite all of this, I need to be there for you, my dear viewers, because through your boundless support, you gave me the inspiration to keep going on. I know some of you are not going to stick around for me, but that’s life we all come and go. My YouTube Partnership might end up going in smoke, but my passion, determination, and will to keep pushing on will never die! I want to wrap this by thanking all of my 544 subscribers who have kept up with me for quite some time. I also want to thank the many reviewers and video-bloggers who have not only done their damnedest to make such amazing pieces of work but I have also considered them more than my friends but my extended family including Evan Burris Trout, William T Jones, Tony Whatley II aka The Black Critic Guy, Taylor Wyatt aka Whyboy, James McLoughlin aka Jambareeqi, Logan Ridenbaugh aka Hewy Toonmore, Eli Stone aka Cartoon Hero, Brandon Nichols aka Hardcore Kid, Chris Lee Moore aka Rowdy C, Mike Jeavons, Megan Wessels aka The FanFic Critic, Rachel LS Charman aka EyeofSol, Christine Tsuzaki aka The Asian Critic Chick, Dani Bollenbacher aka The Animated Heroine, Rowna Sutin aka cantorandopera and her husband, Stewart Sutin, James Daniel Walsh, Patricia Miranda, Ross Faries, Adriano Bordoni aka Madhog,…
