I went to @ontariosciencecentre yesterday to watch the eclipse, and a staff guy gave me the special glasses to look at the eclipse for a second. (See the moment in the Instagram Story I'll post at http://ift.tt/2fCIaz6 and http://youtube.com/joshrachlis). And then I gave them back and took this photo where I'm pretending I burned my eyes. Haha! But now I'm wondering if maybe I really did damage my eyes. And for what? Two seconds of looking at a round shadow on a bright ball of fire? I threw away decades of meticulously protecting my eyes with sunglassses, all for two seconds of nothing? I didn't even care about the eclipse in the first place, plus I was coming down with a cold, but I let the media hype convince me to take public transit to this event. Oh, and afterward I saw a sign saying "Wear protective glasses. Or, even safer, don't look directly and use a pinhole camera." Even safer?! So it's not completely safe to use those glasses they were passing around? So you're taking a chance of permanent eye damage to look at something that looks like absolutely nothing?! If I survive this, I'm not falling for media hype any more. I don't care about sports, so I'm not watching the Olympics or a Blue Jays playoff game. I'm not freezing my butt at Nathan Phillips Square to watch New Year's Eve fireworks. I'm staying home and making songs and videos and cartoons - The stuff I actually enjoy and which will help build the life I want. I remember discovering in university that I was a lot happier when I stayed in the dorm and recorded a song with my friends in the bathroom (for the acoustics) than when I went to pub night to try to meet girls. Even though pub was supposedly the place to be. No more FOMO (Fear of missing out). From now on, only JOMO (Josh Motion). ☀️ 😫 #eclipse #eclipse2017 #eclipseglasses #blindness #FOMO #Toronto #vlog #vlogger #influencer #entrepreneur 😤 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

OMG! I just discovered I've been uploading videos to Facebook in low resolution - I needed to change the settings in my Facebook App to upload them in HD. Should I now go back and re-upload my vlogs in HD? Or should I just leave those and move on and just make sure future uploads are HD? I've been uploading all my vlogs to YouTube for a few months. It's only this past week that I started uploading them directly to Facebook as well. So there are just 8 vlogs in the Facebook album. I'm sure the right answer is just to move on. Maybe I need to do a Facebook Live show to get my mind off these crappy low-resolution videos. Who wants to be my guest via webcam? 📱 #socialmediaexpert #YouTube #FacebookApp #videoeditor #vlog #vlogger #Toronto #influencer #comedy #neurotic 📱 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

July 31: Dawn aka @mysweetlittleangel drove to @mercerbeer, the #StratfordON hotel my parents were staying in. I went to the washroom to do Number 1 before the drive. Walking to the back of the establishment, I felt compelled to show you the nightsky-like lighting. I want to make my condo look like the nightsky too. I think I should stay at Mercer for a few days and vlog about it! ⭐️ #hotel #restaurant #bar #travelblog #travelvlog #foodie #Toronto #lighting #interiordesign ⭐️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #influencer #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


July 30: My dad's cousin - famous doctor and public health advocate Michael Rachlis - had a brunch for the cousins. I somehow made the cut. As we all left, I asked to take a selfie. I doubt anyone's on Instagram for me to tag them. Other than my parents, who only got Instagram accounts to occasionally check my Instagram Story to make sure I'm not doing any sketchy. But I'm sure I can tag most of the gang on Facebook. But anyway, the bagels, cream cheese and lox were delish! 🌲 #family #brunch #toronto #vlog #vlogger #influencer #foodie #entrepreneur #familyblog #summer ☀️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


July 28: Met a girl at @quantumcoffeeco. Got @villagejuicery bottle, to be healthy. It was over $14, but look at those ingredients! I think this juice made me better looking, if that's even possible. (Because I was so good-looking to start with, I mean. I'm not doubting the juice's powers.) I think Village Juicery should supply me with all my calories for a week and we'll see if I become James Bond. 🍋 #juice #greenjuice #Toronto #nutrition #foodie #coffeeshop #vlog #fitness 🍎 I am a: #vlogger #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Throwback to July 22: After the @aninconvenienttruth sequel screening, I ran into Victoria Serda (@torserda) and her daughter @corrina.serda . I met them at a @greenpartyontario AGM years ago, and we hung out in Chicago when I was attending Al Gore's Climate Reality training. Anyway, after the movie, we all went for pizza with Audrey Dépault, National Manager of @climaterealityproject Canada. We had a fun chat, the pizza was vegan, and we recycled our pop cans. ♻️ #environment #AlGore #beinconvenient #Toronto #movie #pizza #recycle #globalwarming #vlog 🌏 I am a: #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

July 15: At dinner with @thecontestqueen, I interviewed our @lonestartexasgrill @lsdowntownto server "Savannah", aka @girlbrushedpink. She was in my Instagram Story, and the Lone Star page replied to me that they are glad I got served by Savannah cuz they love her, and they can't wait to see the interview. After the interview, and after the fajitas, Sav told us she prefers duck face in photos. So we did it too.

Shavua tov! That must be the expression I was trying to come up with to mean the end of Shabbat in the video I just posted.

Paige the @vintage_hotels @theparlourinn server is in my http://ift.tt/2tBEVm2 Story! Here's a clip! (I saw her earlier on the hotel's IG. So she's famous. And she just told me she's a pig farmer's daughter! Wow. A bacon babe! And like me, she's got nothing better to do! I think I'm in love.) 🍔 #StratfordOntario #hotel #restaurant #travel #tourism #foodie #vlog #travelblog #burger #influencer 🍜 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

I wandered around the @vintage_hotels #StratfordON crown jewel @theparlourinn and came across a cute blonde and I asked: "Are you Paige?" She said, "Yes!" I said: "I saw you on Instagram!" She looked scared, but then I explained that I had seen her on the hotel's page when I was looking it up earlier. She called over her manager to tell her what I said. Paige was proud to be famous. But the manager said: "Ya, but that means I'm doing my job with the social media!" And I said, "Yes, I was admiring the post and wondering who posted it!" Anyway, after all this, I figured I better sit down and order some food and test out this famous Paige's service. So I'm sitting down now and just ordered a burger and cream of tomato soup. Paige says now she can't pull her usual trick of giving me a fake name if I don't like the service. So the pressure is on! She asked if I want bacon on the burger and I said sure let's go crazy. She then said she's a pig farmer's daughter, so she had to ask. 🐷 #hotel #restaurant #travelblog #travel #tourism #influencer #entrepreneur #foodie #burger 🍔 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I recommend #StratfordON's @mercerbeer! My parents stay here every year for their weeklong Stratford Seminar Series, where they see plays and hear talks from theatre professionals. The beds in the room look very comfy. In the restaurant downstairs has cozy brick walls, interesting menu items, lots of beer, and cool servers. And even though in my Dollarama hat I don't really look cool enough to be here, nobody has kicked me out when I'm hanging around downstairs waiting for my parents to get dressed so I can walk with them to their group dinner at @theparlourinn. So they're obviously friendly and welcoming! 🍺 #stratford #stratforduponavon #hotel #restaurant #travel #tourism #influencer #entrepreneur #travelblog 🍻 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I recommend #stratfordon's #boathouseriversidepatio! The Juliet sandwich has my fav ingredients, like turkey and hummus and whole wheat bread. It comes with a variety of fruit and a mini cupcake. And it's just $6.50! A steal for a great meal right on the water, next to frolicking ducks and a curious swan. This Romeo is glad I've finally met a Juliet for me to love. And when you're done, you can step right onto the river tour boat for $8 for adults or even less for others. I think I'll move into the Park Tower apartment across the bridge and eat here every day for the rest of my life. 🚣 #Stratford #StratfordOntario #stratfordonavon #restaurantreview #travel #tourism 🦆 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

Argh! For the last video I just posted, I messed up and the "cover image" isn't my face - It's just a blur of the camera turning. And that won't make anyone want to click on it. But it already has around 14 Likes and I don't want to lose those by deleting it and re-posting it. So can you go to the previous video and give it a Like so I feel like I haven't completely screwed it up? 😫 #vlog #vlogger #dailyvlogger #entrepreneur #influencer #Toronto #homestudio #socialmediaexpert #comedy #neurotic 😱 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

My 1st @fiveguyscanada #burger! #foodie #Ottawa On Sunday, my dad and I celebrated buying his @fitnessdepotcanada treadmill with some lunch. I told the nice cashier girl that maybe this wasn't the right way to celebrate a treadmill, but she said that if we had to go to a fast food place, this was the best one to celebrate fitness. I thought she was being sarcastic. But no, she was talking about the high quality of their food. Dad got a hotdog. I saw on the menu that they had a Hamburger or a Little Hamburger. I figured I'm a grown-up so I got the Hamburger. And I wanted the full experience so I got bacon and cheese. When it came, it had two patties. A girl on my Instagram later told me that the little burger has one patty. I think that would've been enough. Good thing I have a gym in my condo with a treadmill. I was about to wrap up the last half of the burger to eat later, but my dad said that would be gross. So I finished it. It was delicious. But from now on I'll stick to my guns and wrap up food to go. I've still got time to get into bikini shape for this summer. Oh, and I don't normally drink pop but I had Coke Zero, and I think it was the reason I couldn't sleep all night. So remind me to not drink caffeine. 🍔 👙 #fitness #nutrition #health #weightloss #travel #tourism #vlogger 🏃🏼 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Free @kettlemansbagel #bagels! #Ottawa #foodie 🇨🇦 Yesterday when we came out of @fitnessdepotcanada, dad noticed something on his windshield. I inspected and saw it was a paper bag that said you could fill it with 3 free bagels at the Train Yards location. We drove around looking and had to call another location to ask where this one was, and when the girl came back to the phone from asking, we'd already spotted it. The bagels were hot and fresh! I brought them home and... Come to think of it, I never ate one. My family ate them all.

I convinced my dad to come with me to @fitnessdepotcanada to look at treadmills and he let me buy him one! I want him to try walking while he watches his scifi and cop TV shows - Just like I've started watching @netflix on my laptop on the gym treadmill. I'm very excited that dad will be training daily so we can have lots of walks and adventures together for years to come! Thanks, Paul the manager, for explaining some medical stuff to dad (like that front knee pain is caused by weakness in the rear leg muscles, and walking on a 0% or 1% incline will be like walking downhill which will strengthen the hamstrings), and for indulging my OCD by taking us through all the treadmill model options. 🏃🏼 #fitness #health #nutrition #treadmill #runner #walking #weightloss #Ottawa #healthblog #influencer 💪🏻 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

This story has a @canadadryclubsoda twist: The imploded @preschoice club soda has made it from John's place to my parents' place, where I took this pic this eve. And I showed the family the tweet that shows customer service is on it! Now we're debating whether Loblaw's would you take the return if my dad drinks the club soda and the can is empty. Mom says he shouldn't drink the expired club soda. I say that it's just water so what harm could it do? My sister has informed me that years ago, her husband Jesse asked his dad John to buy Canada Dry Club Soda for the Arnprior house and John picked up President's Choice Club Soda. Jesse insists that they aren't the same and he refuses to drink the President's Choice Club Soda. And so the cans have just been sitting there. Hence the 2015 expiration date. I'd like to do a side-by-side taste test to see if he can really tell the difference. Meanwhile, Uncle Glen says it's all just water with carbon dioxide. 💦 #firstworldproblems #chemistry #clubsoda #Ottawa #travelblog #foodie #vlogger #foodblog #drinks #influencer 🍹 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Met Andrea for rosé at @foxandfeatherpub in #Ottawa. (See Instagram story.) Ya, she ordered rosé and I said I'd have the same. Cuz I'm manly, like James Bond. Walked home along Elgin Street. Downtown is quiet on this Tuesday night, post #Canada150. So cozy. I love this town. 🇨🇦 #travel #tourism #travelblog #MyOttawa #pub #vlog #vlogger #wine 🍷 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #entrepreneur #minmalist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #influencer #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad
