Watched 2nd half of @guardiansofthegalaxy on @netflix on my MacBook Pro on treadmill! Ran for an hour and the time flew by! This is one my best ideas ever. The condo has downgraded the cable in the gym and we just get 10 channels on the treadmill TVs and I hate watching sports and @theellenshow is only at noon and @entertainmenttonight is in the eve and I can only watch so much @cp24breakingnews. So this week I had the idea to take my laptop down to the gym, but then I nixed that cuz remembered that I often yank the headphones out of the treadmill socket, and that would send my laptop flying. But then I remembered I have wireless @sony headphones that a production company gave me for a Christmas present about four years ago, and they've just been sitting in their box and I recently put them up for sale online but haven't decided to take on offer yet. So I filmed an unboxing today (for http://youtube.com/joshrachlis) and took the headphones for a run. I might wind up watching a movie a day now! And maybe I'll lose 20 lbs? I could be the fittest movie reviewer ever! Stayed tuned! 🎥 🏃🏼 #gym #fitness #runner #weightloss #condo #treadmill #Toronto #entertainmentnews #headphones #techblog 💻 🎧 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Tonight's excitement beneath my balcony: Wedding reception with the bride and groom dancing to Kissed By A Rose while the guests wave sparklers. I'd groan at the cheesiness, but that would just be to hide my deep desire to be that bride.

I've started using @shapr_app, which is like @tinder but for networking with like-minded professionals. Kimberly Johnston @kimmyj02 is my first in-person meeting (I suggested my fav @secondcupcanada). Kim has overcome health issues like 2 strokes - During the 2nd one she thought she was going to die - And she's using her second chance at life to pursue her dream of celebrating niceness. Her site, nicecity.ca @nicecity_toronto, acknowledges acts of kindness that would otherwise go unnoticed. She gives out these bracelets (NiceCity.ca on front, "It's nice to be noticed" on back) to reward people for nice acts. She also gave a @dlishcupcakes cupcake to a random stranger in Trinity Bellwoods Park to celebrate NiceCity's Twitter hitting 70 followers. Oh, and her dog #blarneyobudrick is famous for sitting with his head out the window of Kim's King Street West brownstone. She's put a sign in the window with his hashtag so she can find when people post photos of him. He recently had his 10th birthday party in a park so his fans could celebrate with him. Anyway, I think Kim said we're supposed to pass the bracelet on to people we see doing nice things. So my bracelet and I will be watching you, #Toronto! 🏘 #networking #influencer #blogger #gooddeeds #charity #travelblog #entrepreneur #socialmediaexpert 🐶 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

More useful feedback from songwriter @ani.matevos. She likes how I pop in and out of frame in my vlogs. And I explain to her why I do that - So enjoy the behind-the-scenes info! (I couldn't fit it into this photo, but the rest of my answer was that I have to go back behind the camera so that I can see the button to stop the filming.) If anyone else ever has feedback for me, feel free to let me know! I love learning what people like and don't like so I can improve. And it's just nice to know if people are even watching! 📲 #influencer #vlog #iPhone #tech #Toronto #socialmediaexpert #videographer #travelvlog #travelvlogger #travel 📸 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


An encouraging note from European songwriter @ani.matevos about my brick stories! Details: I mentioned my love of brick buildings in my Insta Story on Thursday, which I just now uploaded to YouTube and Facebook. To keep up with the theme, I made a 10-second video of a brick wall on today's Instagram Story. In response, I got a kind message from @ani.matevos saying she likes my brick reports!

Workers revealing the real brick wall! As part of my ongoing series of me appreciating old brick walls, here's the heritage house (now @la_carnita) beside my condo, where they're scrapping off a fake brick facade to reveal the real brick beneath. (Note: I mentioned brick buildings in my Insta Story on Thursday, which I just now uploaded to YouTube and Facebook. To keep up with the theme, I made a 10-second video of this wall on today's Instagram Story. Then right after, I decided to shoot this longer version because I really like the wall. Later today, in response to the Story, I got a kind message from @ani.matevos saying she likes my brick reports! So I shall keep doing them.) 🏡 #Toronto #heritagebuilding #architecture #brickwall #brick #antique #vlog #urbanplanning #interiordesign #realestate 🏡 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Looks like last night's German beer commercial shoot on my condo terrace was a wild time. I guess I should have slipped into my lederhosen and joined them.

Inspiring meeting with @artiktoronto! Last week on facebook I saw a woman ask where to get custom-printed drinking glasses and coasters. Ever the entrepreneur, I decided to google for companies that do that and emailed some asking if they have a referral program. Saul, co-owner of Artik, emailed back saying he liked my social media and we should talk on the phone. I offered to drop by in person and we set up a time for this morning. We wound up chatting for 2 hours about our mutual passions for blogging, screenwriting, logo design, drawing, entrepreneurship, @timferriss's 4-hour Workweek book, self-improvement, focusing on one creative project as per the book Good To Great... We even talked about my website name, and my new goal of being a celebrity interviewer, and he convinced me to switch from my current joshrachlis.today domain back to my celebrityjosh.com I'd been working on. I sketched out logo ideas and he told me to make the lines thicker and I drew my famous 3-D letters and he laughed and said he loves drawing letters just like that. I said I'd go home and work on a logo with my new @wacom Intuos tablet and he said that in a week he could make me business cards, T-shirts, hats, pens... Oh, and he's especially good at printing buttons. He wants to make buttons featuring just my doodle of my face on it, with no words. And we agreed that nobody today has a fridge you can stick magnets on. Now I'm home and need to spend a 2 hours recording a voiceover. Then I'll work on my logo. Oh, and if you want anything printed with the best quality and customer service, go to Artik.com and use promo code "celebrityjosh" for a special discount. He mentioned he'd make that happen for my friends - So I'm getting right on it! ⭐️ #tshirtshop #customprinting #printshop #printing #logo #Toronto #swag #promocode #fourhourworkweek #goodtogreat 📝 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #influencer #entrepreneur #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

A popular clip from my @instagram Story from @thechainsmokers with @kiiara concert. I'll upload the whole Story to http://youtube.com/joshrachlis so you can see if I survived my first techno concert. Or Electronic Dance Music. Or DJ'ing. Or whatever the heck this was.

Rave reviews came in about my @instagram Story from @thechainsmokers with @kiiara concert. @siobhanschmidt: "Your story is the funniest thing I've ever seen in my entire life. I just died laughing." @ms.j.love: "Your face is priceless." @bcblayney: "You literally made me laugh out loud!" This encouragement keeps me going. So a huge thanks to them. For those who weren't following, I'll post one clip in here next (with my priceless face) and then the whole Story at http://youtube.com/joshrachlis.

Funny Jenga Fail! Here's the clip that @ani.matevos replied to and told me to post. (See previous pic). It's a sample of my new plan to vlog via my Instagram Story! Now I'll post the whole vlog on YouTube. 🍷 The story of Ani's comment, cut and pasted from previous pic: So, on May 27 on route to @westcottvineyards Ginger Fest, I decided to post clips to my Instagram story along the way. I wasn't sure if anyone cared, but I got this sweet message from @ani.matevos, a YouTuber in Holland who writes songs about videogames. This gave me encouragement that maybe I was onto something. It showed me that people like my humour. And it also showed me that Instagram Stories can be an effective tool. When I film regular vlogs throughout my day, it takes me forever to get around to editing them and then takes a long time to edit. I still have travel vlogs going back 5 years that I want to edit. Those TIFF vlogs took me months to finish. And I've got an hour of footage from each of the 12 days I was in Costa Rica in August. So it will take me 12 hours just to watch the footage, never mind to edit it. I tried to do it on the drive to Miami but barely got Day 1 done. I guess I could just upload all the footage in chronological order. But nobody wants to watch an hour long video. But if I just do Instagram Stories as I go along and then download the whole thing and upload it to YouTube as one chunk, I could be posting a vlog every day. So I'll start by posting the specific clip of a Jenga game that Ani was referencing. And then I'll post the over 3-minute video of the whole Ginger Fest. 🍷 #influencer #entrepreneur #vlogger #dailyvlogger #Toronto #socialmediaexpert #vineyard #lifecoach #jenga #blogger 📱 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

I love seeing all the ways I could declutter and simplify my home. Lately I've wanted to be extra #minimalist and not even have extra shelves.

May 16: I'm honoured that me & my #TodayWithTray cartoon appeared in @trayrush & @shortyisdope's vlog! (See previous post for 10 pics from that #YouTubeSpaceTO event). The story: Tray is white. His wife is black. They have kids. They vlog about their family. They have 579,064 YouTube subscribers. I got there late, right at the end of their Q&A. I was the only non-black person there, other than Tray and one other bald white guy. I was also probably the oldest person there. Undaunted, I lined up to get a pic with them. I admired the cupcakes with their edible photo on them and the cookies with their channel. I also gazed lovingly at the YouTube square pillow (which I later incorporated in my cartoon). But while in line, I had to pee. I took a cupcake to eat on the walk to the washroom. I ate it and took one bite of the edible photo but threw out the rest of the photo cuz I need to lose weight. When I came out of the washroom I decided I should draw a cartoon of them. But I wanted to get the drawing right. So I fished the edible photo out of the garbage and used that as my guide. I drew the cartoon and got chocolate icing on it. And then I remembered I had taken photos of them earlier and I could've referenced those. I lined up again and showed them my cartoon. Then next day, a friend called to tell me she saw me in their vlog. I watched it and I was in the 12-minute vlog for literally 2 seconds. But that was enough to get me spotted. They're my new vlogger insipiration!

They're shooting @suits_usa on the condo terrace beneath my balcony! Should I put on a suit and join them? I could probably lure @meghanmarkle away from Prince Harry.

Spotted Paul Lieberstein, who plays Tony Flanderson on The Office! ⭐️ After my large @timhortons chili and bun, and then my 3 @awcanada Double Buddy Burgers with Cheese (don't judge me), I saw girls ask a guy if he's Paul, and he said yes. I assumed it was some kind of @tinder meeting. But then the girls asked for photos with him. Afterwoard I asked them who Paul is. They said he's Toby Flanderson on the office. I Googled and learned that he's Paul Lieberstein. I've never watched The Office.

Spotted Paul Lieberstein, who plays Tony Flanderson on The Office! ⭐️ After my large @timhortons chili and bun, and then my 3 @awcanada Double Buddy Burgers with Cheese (don't judge me), I saw girls ask a guy if he's Paul, and he said yes.

Just had 3 @awcanada Double Buddy Burgers with Cheese wrapped in lettuce, after eating a large chili at @timhortons. I figure a high protein diet might help me lose weight. But hold your laughter, because that's not the point of this story. The point is, I was reading the Buddy Burger wrapper and on the right there's a Chicken, because you can get it with crispy chicken patties. Then there's a Cow, because you can get it with beef patties. But then what the heck is that 3rd option on the left?! 😱👧🏼 #diet #nutrition #weightloss #Toronto #restaurant #foodie #foodblog #influencer #entrepreneur #burger 🍔 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #minimalist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#interiordesign #desksetup #desk #Toronto May 14: I returned to @ikeacanada. Because overnight I started worrying that the Adils legs I bought for my desktop might be too wobbly. I discovered Lerberg trestle legs and decided to do a side-by-side stability comparison. 🛋 #interiordesigner #interiordesignblog #homeoffice #entrepreneur #influencer #homedecor 🛏 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#soap #Toronto May 14: As we admired @corktownsoap outside @artsmarket, it started to rain a bit, and you can't mess around with rain and soap! As they scrambled to gather their soaps, I told them how I used to draw cartoons for the displays of Soap Works. They knew of them - I guess the craft soap community is tight. ☔️ #craftsoap #handmade #crafts #influencer #artsblog #dailyvlogger #cartoon #illustration 💦 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


#church #Jewish #Toronto May 14: So I assumed a "mission" was a homeless shelter, so I wore my usual shlubby clothes, but when I went inside, I saw that everyone was dressed nice, because it's a church! My life is so awkward! The background: My friend Elana invited me to St. John The Compassionate Mission for Mother's Day lunch. I thought a mission meant it was just for homeless people, so I was nervous to go in, lest they think I was taking food that was for homeless people. (This is the same concern I had at that Christmas dinner at the Y in Ottawa that my mom was volunteering at.) Also, it looked like a church, and I'm Jewish. So I was doubly nervous. 🇮🇱 #homeless #charity #religion #poverty #fashionblog #vlogger #influencer

#interiordesign #desksetup #homeoffice #YouTuber #Toronto May 13: @ikeacanada trip! I went to buy a desk for the home studio I'm turning my 2nd bedroom into. I've been addictively watching YouTube videos about desk set-ups (it's a whole world of videos I had no idea existed!) and I saw that one kid had 100,000 views for each of 6 videos of his trips to IKEA to assemble a desk set-up. So I figured I should film my visit. In this clip, I think about getting a bed and desk combo and then talk myself out of it. Filming and editing IKEA visit vlogs would be exhausting. I hope I can get famous doing celebrity interviews instead. Or maybe I should take celebrities to IKEA. 🛋 #desk #interiordesign #interiordesigner #interiordesignblog #vlogger ⭐️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#artist #painter #condo #Toronto May 13: Drove past construction boards featuring art by @danicooperman. She was a wee art director intern when I started working as a copywriter at Leo Burnett 16 years ago, and now look at her! All 3 of us are impressed! (The 3 being me, my friend's chihuahua and my extra chin). 🎨 #chihuahua #dailyvlogger #construction #realestate #realestateblog #artblog 🎨 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


#interiordesign May 12: Great finds at @dollaramaca! Decided to buy a Metric tape measure so I didn't have to keep converting the numbers from my two Imperial tape measures. Was going to go to Canadian Tire to get one for at least $20 but found an online article saying that tools are one of the items you should buy at the dollar store. Found this one for $2.50! Celebrated by also getting this bathroom floor mat with a pebbles design printed on it. I love interior decorating with white and grey. 🌫 #savingmoney #homefurnishing #condo #hardwarestore #interiordesigner #interiordesignblog #Toronto #discount #financialadvisor 💰 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


#stagename #actor #YouTuber May 12: Passed this @wildwingrestaurants sign and thought J-Time Special could be the stage name I've been looking for! Easy to spell and pronounce. Has a sense of urgency. Recognizes my uniqueness.
