I've been working on a video for @cathmckennaottcen, @jeffskoll and #AlGore to celebrate their Q&A at tonight's 7pm screening of #aninconvenientsequel. In the video, I show a poster and theme song I made for the movie. But I can't finish the video in time, and I want to walk over to @scotiabank @cineplexmovies Theatre to see if I can still get a ticket. So I'll edit and post my video tomorrow! ♻️ #environment #globalwarming #climatechange #documentary #hollywood #toronto #cartoon #movie 🌏 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. πŸ” πŸ‘™ #fitness #nutrition #health #weightloss #travel #tourism #vlogger πŸƒπŸΌ 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 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ 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. πŸƒπŸΌ #fitness #health #nutrition #treadmill #runner #walking #weightloss #Ottawa #healthblog #influencer πŸ’ͺ🏻 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. πŸ’¦ #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

I do freelance copywriting for ad agency @napkinmarketing. Today they realized that they'd been working so hard on their clients' #Canada150 promos, they left their own to the last minute. They had an idea to draw a maple leaf and a happy Canada Day message on a napkin. They sent me a photograph of a napkin they drew a maple leaf on - They figured maybe I could draw it a bit better. I decided to put my own spin on it and spent a couple of hours this morning drawing this masterpiece. Adina's business partner Michael is also her husband, so I figured he was fair game. πŸ“ πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ #cartoon #comicstrip #Canada #Toronto #adagency #marketing #advertising #digitalinfluencer #entrepreneur ✏️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

.@shanique_f and @sabhaque came back to me because they heard me say I wanted to take a photo with them for Instagram. I showed them that I already had taken my secret one with them in background. They loved it. And they posed with me for this one. They're so nice! Later Shan will email me a pic she took of me with her fancy camera. Shan said my pic looks great and asked if I have an iPhone 7. I told her it's just a 6S, but that I use the big lens for my selfies and shoot blind, because the big lens shoots in higher resolution. 🌈 #torontopride #prideto #toronto #pride2017 #equality #travelblog #vlog #vlogger #photographer #blogger 🌈 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

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!

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

(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.)

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.

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 πŸ“ 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. (Concert was May 30). πŸŽ› #Toronto #technomusic #DJ #concert #vlogger #influencer #entrepreneur #celebritygossip #musicreview #edm πŸ’» I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

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 πŸ“± I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad
