On Dec. 13, I went to Paul Shaffer at UJA's Centennial Campaign Closing. As you know, I like to write songs for celebrities, hoping that will endear me to them. But I left this one to the last minute. An hour before the event, I wrote a song about Paul Shaffer. But instead of trying to film it and the video, I...

On July 20, 2015 I posted a photo of me awkwardly joining Heather Saffer on her Tinder date: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153430942732459&l=8ef40bde9a Finally, here's a video revealing how that date went. Hint: It changed my sexuality. (Bonus intro of Ward Anderson and Allison E. Dore talking to us on SiriusXM Canada's Ward and Al before the date.) Heather Saffer (founder of gluten-free Dollop gourmet frosting) stayed...

In July 2015, Heather Saffer drove from Rochester to Toronto to be on a radio show and stayed with me. People ask me if I wound up dating her. I did not. This is likely one of many reasons why: She asked about a couch at a bar, and I replied with a story about my failure to have...

Is being gluten-free mostly just trendy? A Gabby's Restaurant Group waitress said it is, and Heather wants to punch her! Click to watch the hilarious rant - Filmed way back on July 19, 2015. (And please subscribe to www.youtube.com/joshrachlis to help me make more fun stuff!) Note: Like the waitress, I've read that people who aren't celiac are being gluten-free...

I last 1 minute in a chair that looks like a vagina, before my neuroses make me prematurely evacuate. (See how I got multiple puns in there? I'm a cunning linguist. Oh man, I just gave you two more!) The story: On September 5th, at the Canadian National Exhibition, I posted a selfie with an inflatable chair that looked like a...

I'm as bald as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. So who better to explore the Star Trek exhibit? (Star Trek "boldly goes"... Get it?) But was it Star Trek or Star Dreck? On September 5, at the Canadian National Exhibition, I came across a Star Trek exhibit I'd seen advertised: "Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years. - A global art exhibition...

Back in March, Randi Zuckerberg commented that she'd love to host a radio show with me. Well, tomorrow night she's in Toronto to speak at UJA Federation of Greater Toronto's Jews with Big Jobs event. Maybe I'll get to talk to her. So I've written a theme song for our show.

This year, for the first time, I attended Fan Expo Canada. Watching celebrities like Stan Lee, William Shatner, Brent Spiner and Mark Hamill being interviewed was fun. But I wished I was the one doing the interviewing. I love to be creative and funny in front of an audience. So I went to Super Geeked Up Live, a live version of the...

I've given new meaning to Train Spotting. On August 29, on the GO Train to visit my sister and her kids in Brampton, I spotted famous YouTuber Jus Reign. I plugged my microphone into my iPhone and proceeded to narrate the sighting. I'm only just getting around to editing and posting this now because, well, I haven't had the discipline...
