I played young Rob Ford in a comedy music video

When I was dressed as Enviroman at the Monsanto protest recently, I bumped into my friend Judith Klassen dressed as her alterego, flaky reporter Tasha James. Judith interviewed me as part of her funny protest interviews. And then she asked if I would come out to be in her next Rob Ford video. I said yes. The result is the latest in a series of music videos that she has made about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. She describes it as "a docu-drama-musical based on a Globe and Mail piece about the Ford family." It answers the question: What was the Ford family doing in the 1980's? It also answers the question: Why was Josh Rachlis wearing a blonde mullet wig on Sunday? Judith has been effusive with her praise of my performance, tweeting about how I was making her laugh during editing, describing me as the "amazing Josh" in her Facebook post, commenting "Fork dance!" on my Facebook page, and, as you'll see, giving me special billing in the credits. The video has been getting lots of press. And Jude has already asked if I would reprise my role in a future Ford film. So... Stay tuned!

I was interviewed for a Monsanto protest comedy video

My friend Keely invited me out to the March Against Monsanto, and said I should dress as Enviroman, my eco-superhero character. I was reluctant and nervous, which for me is a sign that I should do something, because we only learn and grow by doing things that scare us. At least, that's what I tell myself, to force myself to leave my apartment. So, I took the streetcar to the park, and, after prompting by Keely and her friends, I took the costume out of my backpack and put it on in the middle of the crowd. And here's what I looked like:

A lot of cute girls wanted their photos taken with me. Which I liked. Though, strangely, none of them asked for my number. But anyway, I spotted my friend Judith Klassen, dressed as her alter-ego, flaky reporter Tasha James. She was doing comedic interviews with people and she wanted to interview me too. So she did. And then I helped her interview other people. This is what we looked like:

There was lots of fun footage. But since this whole thing was about the protesters, only a tiny bit made of me made into the final edit. But hey, even a little Enviroman is better than none. Just like with recycling and eco stuff like that. The vid is below. You'll see me at 1:07 and 2:28.

I was the guest on a relationship advice radio show

Last night I was the sole guest on a brand-new Internet radio show called SUNDAY NIGHT CONFESSIONS WITH TEREASA VENOM. Tereasa is the dominatrix who spanked me on air on Humble & Fred Radio. Apparently she liked my yelps of pain so much that she wanted to talk to me for the entire length of her very first show. I talked about the threesome that Humble And Fred Radio sent me to have last week, and I even helped give advice to a caller who wanted to know how to make her boyfriend interested in sex again. Whether my advice was good or not, I leave that to you. To listen to my approximately 45-minute appearance, click here.

And to jog your memory, here's the spanking that took place on the radio:
