2000 Subscribers | Coverjam #1

In good YouTubing tradition, I felt like I had to make a thank you video to celebrate the 2 thousand subscriber mark..

well, its also because I missed the first thousand and I felt bad. I’ve had really little time to do anything nowadays, but I managed to get things together for an hour to record this. We tried our best to make it happen… So I really hope this made up for it! Hope you like it guys!

 


Big shout out to TalonPhreak for being the 2000th Subscriber!! You rock!! 🙂

 

And really, to everyone else. Thank you.

I’m not sure who knows about it.. But the current video channel, which this blog stemmed from and were all those videos are posted was something that I started as a side project, for fun. I started YouTubing with a “Musician Channel”. I still have problems labeling myself as such, but I posted up covers and stuff.. Really simple ones. Mostly as projects for me to learn how to use recording equipment, which I still don’t know how to use..yup.

 

Charis has been a very dear and close friend for many years now. I can almost call her my sister in arms when it comes to anything YouTube. We’ve done covers and performed together before and I’m just so very glad that I could have had her in on this one. So stop by her channel or her blog and say hi!

Well, I’m gonna be quieter for the time being. Thesis, assignments, exams.. you name it, I’ll be doing it. But I’ll be back! Promise!

Thank you again everyone. You’ve made such an impact on a single life, its amazing to have all of you here.

Updates | Arden Cho!!!

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a while since the last post and I thought I’d update things here a bit to get things up to speed.

things have just been awesome, i’ve been able to meet so many new people and so many new things have been opened up. but really, it all comes back down to all of you guys who’ve watched and decided to click that “Play” button in the first place. i cant thank YOU enough.

 

Okay, first up..!

theLIFEpad interview.

 

We were really fortunate to get a call from a company called Live & Inspire a few weeks ago. They’re setting up an online series called theLIFEpad which will feature many different people who do many different things that expresses their individual creativity. Their tagline? “provoking potential + celebrating inspiration”. So when we heard that, we were more than honored to have been featured in the premier episode of the series. Thank you so much for having us guys!

In between, we’ve met many new people. Had the chance to be invited to different projects, events and collaborations. Some of them, bigger than we ever thought was possible. At the moment, I don’t have enough info or am I allowed to share details of it butI thought I’d just let you know to be on the look out for things! We’re pretty stoked, and at the same time, stunned.

 

If you’ve seen the latest vlog that I put up, you’ll know I mentioned something called the WiWongFu campaign. In short, I’m trying my best (as a fanboy) to get the video passed to WongFu so they can see it.

I’ll be honest, I am very touched by all the people who’ve actually helped out. The tweets, the posts on their wall.. I couldn’t be more thankful for all you guys. Really!

So far, I haven’t heard anything from them yet. But last night, I thought I’d try something else instead and well.. it turned out to be just.. wow.

 

Around 3am at night, I was still up working on another script for an assignment.. and browsing around on youtube of course. Then, I watched a familiar video with a familiar face. One which I’ve been a fan of and I’ve followed her videos and covers all over youtube with many different youtubers. And I thought.. hey, why not give it a shot. What’s the worst that could happen? So..

 

I honestly did not know how to say anything else but to be just.. well, bluntly honest. After that, I turned off my laptop and got ready to sleep.. Until.. my phone started lighting up. After a few buzzes.. I literally had to bite my pillow to stop from screaming when I saw this in the comments..

 

I literally just zoned out of existance for a while. And right after that, pass it along was what she did.

 

Having this from someone you admire and respect for what she does, throw in a huge fanboy element… My family should be thankful I didn’t end up burning down the house at 4 in the morning.

 

Arden, if you’re reading this, I am so so entirely grateful for this. I’ve never even thought about or even hoped for such a reply from you, but if it’s possible when I go to LA, I’d like to take you up on that offer! Very much so. If you’d still like to.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerely, Ming.

Well, life’s back to uni-work. And it’s been just nuts. Before the next short comes out, I’m gonna try and do something different for the channel so stay tuned alright? I promise it wont be (that) bad (I hope). Please don’t mind the lack of updates! 3rd year in my degree is a pain!!

Take care guys! I’ll be seeing you soon!
