Introduction Video - Nowhere To Go But Up

in #dtube4 years ago (edited)

Finally decided to stop being a little bitch and make this first video. The sound is shit and I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I believe that some day I'll look back on this and be like, "Wow, look how far I've come."

We'll see.

Anyway, the plan is to make a video every day for a year. About what? Not really sure yet. I'll figure that out as I go along.

I have some ideas for upcoming videos/segments which I've posted here. Read through them and let me know which ones you think are good, stupid, etc.

Also, except for this one, I will not be boosting these videos with paid upvotes. Sorry upvote bots. I will still try and write a long post every 1-2 weeks which I will boost for exposure. But these videos, nah.

My other platforms:


Also, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Dtube is great and everything, but there's no comparison. Once I get to 10k subs I can start making videos at the New York YouTube Campus. Click here to subscribe.

▶️ DTube

Haha, you're not as shit-faced as one would think, still shit-faced tho 😂😂😂😂
I hope to make enough money so I can travel as you do.


Not like I'm a millionaire or anything, but maybe I'll make a few videos that explain how to get clients.

Not a bad video at all. If you ever get stuck in the shit hole we call the midwest around Kansas City I will drink a beer with ya and bullshit on Dtube. I got a good laugh out of the guy trying to fight someone in the background.

I'm in the Kansas City area!

I'm so sorry to learn that.

No shit? Small world.

No plans to get stuck anywhere near Kansas City in the near future but if I am I'll take you up on that.

That is the trick. It is like the Hotel California, You can check out any time you want but you can never leave. We are all just stuck here. lol.

The fuckery continues...

I think I should also stop acting like a bitch and start my first video @dtube , big ups for the all ideas though #musttry

Nice glasses man!
Very fashionable!!!

Looks like this could be fun to follow,
I would just keep it "open" and just do what ever you feel everyday.

Like if you are depressed and hung-over just do like a video on hang-over cures, if you are traing "Muay Thai" just do a video about things relating to exercise etc...

Best of luck!


Yeah, I mean the point is to just keep doing it every day regardless. I don't want to restrict myself to one niche in case I get bored and want to do something else. I'd rather just commit to making one per day and giving myself the flexibility to do it however I want.

You're saying do like a vlog of what I do with my day? I may do some of those. Did that in the past and it's 4 hours of editing a night on a good night. We'll see. Anyway, thanks.

Hmm, I would suggest to try to keep it raw and uncut (K.I.S.S.*), those 4 hours of editing that you mentioned could probably be used for better things, even though it would be cool to see you actually do things, it would be equally cool to just see you talk/rage about the things/events that happened, like if you are upset complaining about someone or something, (then you're very funny man) or just talking about why you like to drink coffee at some local place, or maybe a mini-interview now and then...
( * Keep It Simple Stupid, its a method, so no offence). Okay best of luck man!!! Hope to see more @Yallapapi adventures soon!!!


Yeah you might be right. I used to make videos in the past and would edit out all of the ums and ahs takes a while. I’d add music and shit too, b reel, transitions.. it wasn’t hard, just took forever. We’ll see. Thanks for the feedback tho

Yeah, we rather have you running around doing crazy stuff and travel the world then to have you editing for hours and hours everyday!!!


Who's the big ******** lady behind ya?

Okay, first video of you and I dunno. You sure this person is yallapapi?

Okay, I don't really care. Just wanted to comment cos I got great network for the first time in a while.

Yup, that's me. Not sure who that chick is. Just happened to be there but I didn't want to stop filming just because there was someone in the background. Once you start making excuses like that you'll never get anything done.

Turns out you're actually hot. Who would have thought?

You know, now I believe a picture does actually tell a thousand words. Or was it a thousand stories? Well, a thousand whatever...

Point is, that nutty professor profile pic you have on always made me think that you were some sort of fat (if not at least fifty something old) dude.

Turns out I was wrong. This yallapapi is hot.

Again, not like I care or something. I'm mightily straight. If only you didn't have a dongle between your... Oh forget it.

Lol you thought I was some fat neckbeard that raged on the internet for no reason? Wonder what would have given you that idea.

Use to think you were a female 😁😁 you got great agenda for your way "up"

Nope, definitely not a female.

@yallapapi you are awesome. !

The living legend gets behind the camera! Nice man!

@techslut is in Israel I believe and @luigi-tecnologo is in Italy I believe. You could try to reach out to them.

Where in Israel are you?

Kfar Saba, the city that always sleeps. :)

Hahha! Awesome! It is funny because I believe we communicated that you were in Israel back in 2016 because I was really impressed how good your English was.

Hopefully it is OK that I left that message. I figured you wouldn't mind since it says Internet & Israel on your profile.

Still here! And sure thing. You can also find me on the Utopian Discord if you wanna chat.

It's a tough yet promising ambition to do a video daily. It coincides with my own very ambition (which, by the way, hasn't taken off yet. LOL). All the same, I give you credit for it. You've simply given me the impetus to kickstart mine. The thought of professionalising it is what has kept me dilly-dallying but your injunction to simply start and perfect it as you go along is very instructive. Thank you.

As for your list of sample ideas, I guess it is not exhaustive yet it is very detailed and helpful. It is what can be loosely referred to as a glossary of video ideas. Keep up the good work @yallapapi.

This may be one of my favorite comments of all time.

Very 90s Jean Claude Van Damme look going on there mate, Sorry I didnt watch the video, I prefer reading but Im sure its very good lol :-)

Very 90s Jean Claude Van Damme look going on there mate

LOL.. love it

Sometimes you just have to do it.

crypto wil rise soon

Hi @yallapapi
I hope you planned on talking to or at least asking 4 people in Tel Aviv a question. It does not have to be an interview! Just a few short and sweet (quick) interactions!

Yeah that's possible. Definitely plenty of interesting people here.

Bunch of cool ideas!!
I followed you, Upvoted this!

Great video man! N.Y is def. a different kind of place.

krasavcheg keep it entirely and completely support you and solidarity with you!
images (17).jpgimages (13).jpgimages (16).jpg

cool, and all that other background stuff is just flavor.... keep it going!!!

ps You might want to get an Osmo gimbal since you will be doing a lot of videoing.

Man that's a great starter list for video ideas... definitely better than my idea I had to draw a penis on my bare chest/stomach with a permanent marker and then arch my back to make it grow and hunch over to make it shrink...

There are still lots of ideas and ideas on which you can make videos

Thank you
For your valuable posting arrows. If the brother is actually writing this post hand a little hand Actually I used to know the video as well as Chinese. Maybe I could have better understood.
After that you thank me.

Very good ideas you have to publish.

I am going to the Craigslist Magical Powers thing. Good idea.

Do it and let me know

hi, @yallapapi,
You are doing a great job on stemit and dtube are sharing alots of good things and information with others whis is the good things i found in you and the best thing is about you are doing without any profit i think. I wanna say that your are just amzing guy stay updated your self i need your help . I hope you will upload this kind information daily on steemit . And in last thankyou very much.

For some reason I figured you'd have long blonde hair. You have so many ideas! I'm curious as to whether or not you've performed these before. I'm also inspired by your capability to travel so often. I'm currently in Shanghai and I just want to keep it moving..

LOL long blonde hair? WTF? No brother definitely not.

I've thought about going to China but I don't like having to worry about my internet connection. Plus there's too many Chinese people there.

It's so crazy how bad the internet is here and The Great Fire Wall of China is just to dedicated. I should have done more research. There's just so much spitting that it's unbearable. Even the prettiest of models let it fly like gum.

I must just say that your influence is partially the reason I abandoned my comfort zone. So I like to say thank you and I hope to partner with you financially in the near future, if there is such a thing..

Thank you brother, that's a great compliment. Nothing says you need to stay in China forever. I've been in Israel for 24 hours and I'm already thinking of moving back here LOL
