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
