Quick Channel Update – I’m Sort of Homeless for About a Month

Vote for this video by social sharing!
Hello and welcome wonderful person. So due to unforeseen circumstances, I have to abandon my old studio/apartment where I worked for the past few months because the rent has suddenly jumped by about 40%. I found a new place to work/live from but it’s not available for another month and I have to stay in a hotel somewhere else meanwhile. I’ll try to make videos from there, but still not sure how this is going to work.
Hope all of you are staying healthy. I wish you all the best and enjoy the video compilations that will be posted for the next few weeks.

    Like and a comment is the best support I can give you right now, so here they are!
    I like your channel very much!

  22. Getz Valerevich

    Anton, love your stuff. Always entertaining and important information been presented by you, keep it up brother, one of the few that make a positive impact for society.
    I have seen many live streams for stuff live mobile games and reactions, dude, if you set up a live stream and include “memberships” people will join and donate and you won’t ever have a problem with rent.
    Should consider it and give it a try, I am sure I ain’t the only one that would be keen to join.
    Good work bro. Than you

  23. SGT1 one99one

  50. Adam Ganzer

  51. James Todd

    I wish you the best – definitely living in tough times regardless where you live at.

  52. Mike Armstrong

    You can come live with me !!! Seriously I wouldnt let you live on the street for one minute. You need to live some place stable. I live in the states, New England (Massachusetts) near Cape Cod its nice but I’m thinking of moving to Canada.

  53. Matthew Neptune

    Someone help this absolute legend out. I know when I get more money imma buy some merchandise. I hope you do well man!

    Also who dislikes a video like this? Genuinely hope whoever dislikes this video gets some mega bad karma lol

  54. LunaticSynapse

    I have been in a very similar situation. It’s rough and can be disheartening. Keep your head up! I look forward to you return 😉

  55. Joe Holman

    Love watching you’re videos man. Hope this little blip in road passes soon, much love from UK

  56. Justyn Delbridge

  59. gtafan12ify

    Hey Anton, just wanted to say, your going to get out of this rut your in with your head in tact, for every rut you get yourself in life, it brings wisdom that would otherwise not be there if you didnt, i wish the best for you, and just know you got a friend in me

  60. jake Me

    I’m literally in the same situation with my girlfriend

  61. Asura Bomb#2

    Whew. I thought you’d be gone for good. C’mon man, don’t leave me. You’re one of the main science guys I learn from.
    You’re needed on this platform!

  62. finophile

    glad you added the addendum … I thought it was a “foreigner tax”

    ahnyong hi ka se yo

  63. Elwin Anderson

    We are with you 100% stay confident we all have our ups and downs in times like these 👍🏾🙏🏾

  64. Mario 673

    I wish I could help but I can’t do much unfortunately, your videos, over the past years, have got me from “I hate space, maths , physics and other things that meant “science” to “I love space and everything regarding science now” I’ve seen so many interesting things on this channel, so many new things that I learned from you, and if I’m not wrong I think that 90% of my liked videos are your videos, thanks for bringing us such good content and I hope that everything is uphill from now on, best of luck Anton

  65. pete'spal

    I went through something similar in January. I lost 20 lbs in a month from the stress, lol! Good luck, I look forward to your return!

  66. Bloodtopaz

    I guess your landlord isn’t a wonderful person.

  67. Eric Jette

    Sorry this is happening, Anton. I’ve been homeless a couple times in my life. Maybe it’s time to go camping on a beach and give yourself a vacation?
    Best of luck with your new place, and keep up the good work!

  68. EEVblog

    Better to move on than get shafted! Good luck.

  69. Félix-Antoine Bourque

    Anton, hope everything will go well. I know that taking uploading breaks can be scary for youtubers, but I think you have a very dedicated base that will support your channel no matter what. I know I will, because your positive attitude is always a bright part of my day and it even goes as far as making me a better (more wonderful) person. I don’t comment often on Youtube, but I thought this was a great opportunity to thank you for everything you do :)

    Best of luck buddy

  70. Reblz28

    I’m sure this is going to get lost In this amazing sea of love and support for you but YouTube will be here when you’re ready don’t rush your self you’re in a very stressful situation and it just wasn’t fair for your landlords to do that to you or anyone else. Take care of yourself first

  71. R Langford

    Now I feel bad for all the times Anton has said “patreon really helps me a lot”. Good luck for the future!

  72. Robert Boatman

    I wish I could help you . Stay safe …I’ll watch when you get up and running again!

  73. Ross Bentley

    Ey one of my favorite and most consistent YouTubers. I’ll see if I can help you out on Patreon!

  74. Peter D_law

    We should help him some how

  75. Lord Luxembourg

    Well I’m sure you can just find one of you’re fans nearby to stay with until you get your new house

    lol just stay safe and i hope its not to bad!

  76. WhoIs This

    My dad is currently homeless for almost a year now in Arizona. I wish I myself had a place to give him. I feel for you man.

  77. joette

    ‘Me too’ has a new meaning I’m out on Nov 1 just in time for storms

  78. Nunya Bidniz

    Best of luck! Been sort of homeless since the beginning of the year, starting to see some daylight at the end of the tunnel from the $ saved on rent. Never give up, never surrender!

  79. randybeatsofficial

    Good luck and much love Anton! You’ll get through this, and remember that you have a fanbase that cares and is willing to help you out of any hole you may find yourself into!

  80. Logan Mccool

    Love to see how positive he is in hard times❤️ keep pushing man

  81. Peter Rabbit

    I’m imagining you on the side of the street holding a cardboard sign:


  82. Baleur

    You’re so lucky to have a place to live, and the money to get a hotel…
    I was homeless here in China after 5 months of quarantine (schools closed, us teachers had zero income). And not able to return home due to insane plane ticket prices.. Now i’m temporarily living somewhere, but constantly feel like i’m a burden on those people.. The greatest danger of COVID isnt the virus, its the economic fallout to follow.
    I suspect far more people will end up in a bad situation the following year, due to financial bancrupcy, than actual deaths by COVID. Probably 10x as many people, if not more.

  83. Wayne Shirey

    “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but [Anton] hath not where to lay his head.”

  84. BackYard Science 2000

    I feel ya man. Covid caused me to lose my home and lab as well. Now I am living in a camper and the lab is in storage while we look for a new place and building to set up shop again. Keep your head up. We’ll both be back on our feet in no time.

  85. Warcow34

    good luck man, hopefully in a weeks time i’ll have enough to donate on patreon <3

  86. Chris Bennett

    Someone who lives near him, get this gt’dmn hero a place to live

  87. Jose Fernandez

    Anton, you are a very smart and hardworking man. I know you will be able to rebound quickly from this situation. I wish you the best of luck, and thank you for keeping us informed about the universe!!

  88. Karn

    Good luck Anton! Best of luck, I love you man. When you get back, be sure to make a big video on what we missed! <3 good luck and god bless.

  89. Jake Pierce

    Well if you stay homeless come to London I know of a good studio which was a music studio nice space would be sad not seeing your videos because I really like them )

  90. sobreaver

    Take the time you need, we’ll still be around when you’ll come back from your orbit ;) Best of luck !

  91. realbibob

    What a coincidence. So am I! I’ll also move in October and then finally have good enough internet to watch you in more than 480p.
    We gonna make it

  92. chaztech

    I feel your pain, the house i been living in for 13 years has ben sold during the pandemic

  93. Glenn Green

    There’s a room waiting for you in NJ anytime!
    Your buddy,

  94. Zarcondeegrissom

    be well and take care, best of luck finding a place that isn’t overpriced. We will be here wonderful Anton. B)

  95. nitrogen 15

    Whenever I see a science story on my phone I wait for Anton to give the real non click bait details.

  96. John Walker

    I need to ask my mother if her offer to slap me into next year is still available….. 2020 sucks.

  97. John W

    Alright man that sucks. I’m gonna buy something off teespring to help ya out.

  98. Garance A Drosehn

    Would this be a good time to buy some “Wonderful Person” T-shirts? Or would this be a particularly bad time to do that? All the order-handling and shipping is done by Teespring, right?

  99. Devi

    I’m sure I speak for everyone here when I say we would love to see some vlogs from you! If, of course, it is feasible for you to do so. You are much more than just some YouTube physics guy. You bring knowledge, wonder, entertainment AND POSITIVITY to all of us and as much as we love learning about space, we want to know more about you too, Anton!
    Glad to hear that you have figured out your situation and best wishes! We’ll be right here when you’re ready! Xoxo
    PS-I know you have everything figured out financially, but just know that we, your fans, will never allow for you to fall into a desperate situation, just say the word and we’ll heed the call ❤️

    Small addition: what happened is that the government of South Korea tried to limit rental prices by forcing land owners to only increase annual rent by about 5% max, but somehow this leaked before the law passed and the bill backfired as the land owners started to raise prices by 20-50% in a very short period of time. My rental contract was supposed to be renewed on September 1 and well the new rent had too many numbers in it. Luckily, some land owners are wonderful and did not raise the price that much, so I was lucky enough to find a place starting in October. And yeah, it was very unexpected and very unfortunate as this is in the middle of pandemic and a roaming financial crisis. Let’s hope this is the worst of 2020. Best of luck to all of you!
