My totally kosher, knish-depth knish-terview with Lori Gabay Jioia, of the Gabila's Knishes family! Watch the full 2 minutes at http://youtube.com/joshrachlis and http://ift.tt/2fCIaz6 🍴 I do copywriting for Napkin Marketing Inc., and Gabila’s is a new client. On Thursday. Lori and her husband came up to Toronto from NYC for their first official knish shoot, to make videos for their website launch. Before Lori escaped at the end of the shoot, I pressed Record and Napkin’s Adina Zaiontz filmed me getting the juicy, deep-fried gossip on America’s favorite knishes. What did I learn? You’ll have to watch, because I don’t knish and tell! 🍴 Next step is for me to convince Gabila’s to get on Instagram and Twitter so I can tag them. But in the meantime, Like them on Facebook. πŸ˜‹ Want a shirt with the hashtag #KnishThis? Ask me! The model Casandra Bella wore a shirt they just made rough somewhere. Maybe we’ll get @artiktoronto Toronto to print shirts more professionally. And as always, if you print something at Artik, mention Celebrity Josh or Josh Rachlis for a sweet discount! πŸ‘š And if you want me to interview you to promote your business, let me know! 🎀 #Toronto #knish #kosher #vegetarian #NewYorkCity #Jewish #Israel #food #cooking #chef #foodie #entrepreneur I am: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #podcaster #digitalnomad

On Friday, I was upset with myself for being an hour late to the 9am panel at @hotdocsfest #HotDocsPodFest for which @sapnakmalhotra got me a free ticket. But let’s be real. I’ve already taken @jpddavidson’s podcasting course at @averyswartz’s @camptechco a year or two ago. And I had a few appearances on @cbcradio’s GO show, which @nanaabaduncan worked on. So I just need to start my show. I talked to Nana after the panel and she said I’ve got the skills. And when I told her I’ve turned my second bedroom into a studio, she said I just need to start doing this. She said she’ll be a guest on the show. And so did panel member Suzanne Hancock, host of @podcastsundaynightdinner. I’ll bet I could wrangle @sebbymajor and Avery sometime too. So let’s do this! And by let’s, I guess I mean me. Me do this! πŸŽ™ #Toronto #podcast #podcasting #comedy #funny #radioshow I am: #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #multipassionate #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

At Thursday’s shoot for Gabila’s Knishes with @napkinmarketing, for whom I do copywriting, Adina from Napkin asked me to make “Josh videos” documenting the day. Here, I show you some of the many uses for knishes. Even though I don’t know what kitchen items are called. And I don’t know how to pronounce Gabila’s. 🍴 Next step is for me to convince Gabila’s to get on Instagram and Twitter so I can tag them. But in the meantime, Like them on Facebook. πŸ˜‹ Want a shirt with the hashtag #KnishThis? Ask me! The model @casandrabella wore a shirt they just made rough somewhere.

At Thursday’s shoot for Gabila’s Knishes with @napkinmarketing, for whom I do copywriting, the model @casandrabella did a knish-tastic job of eating knishes. I noticed on her Instagram bio it says she’s a comedian. She told me she wants to try stand-up. I said we should make a pact to go do an amateur night at the same time. I think she kind of smiled and nodded. So I guess it’s happening? I should write some knish jokes. Oh, and she’s wearing a shirt with the hashtag #KnishThis. They just made that rough somewhere. Maybe we’ll get @artiktoronto to make print shirts more professionally.

This @tinder match says she saw me on the subway. But maybe my response wasn’t the right one?

2 months ago, I commented on a @goodmorningamerica clip about college kids Josh and Michelle who chatted on @tinder for 3 years before finally meeting on the show. I forgot about it, and only recently realized my comment has over 1,000 Likes, and some snappy replies like this one that has 126 Likes of its own. Hopefully my true love will see this and take pity on me and come save me from Tinder. Or maybe GMA can have me on as an older, lonelier Josh, explaining what dating life is like long after college? ❤️ #Tinder #onlinedating #Toronto #single #matchmaker #dating #comedy I am: #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Praise for #NicoleKidman! Sept. 25: At the @tiff_net fall preview event, @cameronpbailey took tiff patrons through the season’s upcoming events. Then he introduced a screening of #TheBeguiled. I’m going to write a little blog post about the fall preview, to start making my blog about the arts. I’ll include photos from my trusty #photographer, @madeleine_04137, whose dad got me a ticket to this fall preview. πŸŽ₯ #Toronto #cinema #film #movie #entertainmentnews I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

My 5-year-old niece and 3-year-old nephew and I investigate a bruise on a leaf and an empty snail shell. 🐌 I hadn’t seen my niece Ayla and nephew Eilan for 3 months. So on Saturday, I made the trip to Brampton. Immediately we got back into our routine of playing in the backyard. Ayla found a fly, a fossil and a snail shell. She is not grossed out by bugs. She loves to pick them up and play with them. She’s a fun combination of a girl who loves to dress like a princess and wears a tutu, and a girl who plays hockey and picks up flies. 🐜 #science #nature #entomology #fossil #museum #kids #children #Toronto #Brampton #mommyblog I am: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

On Saturday, after I got off the @gotransitofficial bus to Brampton to visit my sister and her kids, I was hungry because I’m low on groceries and all I ate that day was two eggs. I figured I should get some food so I didn’t show up starving. I ordered a jerk wrap. But then the guy came out and said they are out of the jerk and would I accept chicken roti instead. I said that was fine. I don’t even know what jerk was anyways. And I checked the menu and the jerk is $7.99 and the chicken roti is $9.99 and I already paid. So basically I got two dollars of free food. But when I got to my sister’s she asked why I bought food because we were about to have dinner and I wound up running around with the kids in the backyard without eating my wrap and then I just ate my wrap while we all ate Greek delivery. So I guess I didn’t really win after all. Anyway, Spicy Island Jerk doesn’t even show up as a location on Instagram. It must be nice to be so off the grid. That’s the laidback Jamaican mentality. I should try that. Bye-bye forever, social media! πŸ‡―πŸ‡² #Jamaica #food #restaurant #Brampton #Toronto I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #minimalist #environmentalist #Jewish #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


On Thursday, I went to a meeting about Solar Share solar bonds. To be honest, I don’t have any money right now to invest. But there was going to be free pizza and wine. But I didn’t want to be greedy. So I just took one slice if pizza and a little sip of wine. And then I had to pee. And then I got lost in the underground tunnels in the basement looking for the washroom. But I love old buildings. Brick walls and secret little rooms are so cool. I’m so glad the government has decided to change the tax rules so that 401 Richmond St. W. can remain a hub for small creative businesses and art galleries. So I did enjoy wandering around. And when I got back to the meeting, all the pizza was gone. Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh right. Investing in solar bonds is a way to get a good financial return while helping the environment. So do it! ☀️ #Toronto #solarpower #environment #greenpower #oldbuilding #heritagebuilding #freestuff I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist

Sunday, Sept. 17: Ran into Russ from Red Carpet News TV! 🎀 I attended the final @tiff_net party - A gathering after the awards ceremony on the roof. I didn’t know if I’d be able to get in. I didn’t know if I know anybody there. But I only had to take the elevator 5 floors down from my apartment, so it wasn’t a huge risk. I had some delicious hors d’oeuvres. And I ran into Russell Nelson, who runs Red Carpet News TV in England. As you’ll remember from my TIFF vlogs last year, I met him on a red carpet last year and had some good chats. I love how cool, calm and collected he is on the red carpets, treating it like a business and knowing that if he doesn’t get a good interview this time he’ll get one at another festival. (He asks the talent questions and films their answers and doesn’t get himself in the footage at all. So basically he’s the opposite of me. I’m neurotic and I like to be on camera.) I also like that now I see him every year. It makes me feel like I fit in as a media person at TIFF. And thinking about how he travels around to different red carpets, it makes me think that maybe I should branch out from Toronto and fly to other festivals. But I’ll need to figure out how to get sponsored for that so I can afford it. Anyone want to sponsor me to fly to a film festival to Josh around with the stars? ⭐️ #TIFF17 #England #Toronto #redcarpet #celebrity I am a: #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #feminist #celebrityinterviewer #journalist #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

But I only had to take the elevator 5 floors down from my apartment, so it wasn’t a huge risk. I had some delicious hors d’oeuvres. I didn’t know who was in the background at the time but I could tell they were Quebeckers. And I remembered last year at the same party the Quebeckers were the most enthusiastic celebrators. Some Googling tells me that behind me, posing proudly, that’s Alex Trahan, star of Marc-Antoine Lemire’s Pre-Drink, winner of the IWC Short Cuts Award for Best Canadian Short Film. Synopsis: “Alexe, a trans woman, and Carl, her gay best friend, disrupt the boundaries of their friendship when they decide to have sex for the first time - and raw emotional truths collide with illusions of breezy detachment at a time of transition.” ⭐️ #TIFF17 #Quebec #trans #LGBT #gay #Cdnfilm #Montreal #Toronto #redcarpet #celebrity I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

@realgdt #guillermodeltoro on #TheShapeOfWater #TIFF17 red carpet! He tells me what scares him - And it’s the same thing as his friend @perlmutations #RonPerlman. (Hint: @realdonaldtrump) 😱 I drew the talent as a conversation starter and asked what's something in their life that was a monster at first but then they realized it wasn't as scary as they initially thought - Like the monster in the movie. πŸŽ₯ #Toronto #celebrity #cartoon #Hollywood #entertainmentnews I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

I interview @actordougjones on #TheShapeOfWater #TIFF17 #redcarpet and he gives the most thoughtful, inspirational and touching answer to my question. He plays the monster in this film. And watch him as Lt. Saru in @startrekcbs. πŸš€ I drew #art of the talent as a conversation starter and asked what's something in their life that was a monster at first but then they realized it wasn't as scary as they initially thought - Like the monster in the movie. πŸŽ₯ #Toronto #celebrity #cartoon #Hollywood #entertainmentnews I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#Toronto Mayor John Tory totally recognizes me on #TheShapeOfWater #TIFF17 #redcarpet! Maybe from seeing me on @bttoronto when I ran against him? But of course my camera girl @zest29 is quick to shoot down my self confidence, while also giving me advice that will get me arrested. ⭐️ #celebrity I am a: #copywriter #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#RonPerlman @perlmutations on #TheShapeOfWater #TIFF17 #redcarpet! Listen to my camera girl @zest29 and I banter about him. We should totally cover @theacademy Awards red carpet! Even though Raquel wasn't born when Beauty And The Beast aired from 1987-1990. Sigh. ⭐️ #Toronto #celebrity I am a: #copywriter #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

#BenedictCumberbatch on #TheShapeOfWater #TIFF17 #redcarpet! Apologies to my camera girl @zest29 for punching her rock hard stomach to get her attention quickly. ⭐️ #Toronto #celebrity I am a: #copywriter #influencer #entrepreneur #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad
