Webmaster's Note: Joey and Einstein will be at sea for the next 20 plus days.. check back after a few stories are up, this page may be be updated.

Jan 31 - Feb 12 - California, USA: Joey and I settled into an Oceanside apartment with our lovable friends Wiley, his wife Melissa and his dog Sammy. We partied in a garage listening to 70s punk while Scott further customized his motorcycle and we pretended we were Paul Sr. from East Coast Choppers and yelled at him. On Thursday, we headed down to San Diego to meet our friend Karen, got totally hammered in a kareoke bar, and ate a giant pizza. On Feb. 4th Joey turned 28 (or 12 depending on who you ask) so we ate cake and ice cream until we passed out. We went back to San Diego where I met one of my favorite movie stars, C3P0, and then drank and ate Mexican food with some Marines who just got back from Ramadi and Fallujah, Iraq with some HARDCORE battle stories. Then we headed up to Los Angeles....

In Los Angeles we met up with our friend Mersh (better known as Brendan Frasierís arm in the poster for The Mummy), watched the Philly Eagles lose the Superbowl while eating the worldís most amazing nachos in Beverly Hills. Later that night we somehow ended up in another kareoke bar and so we decided to have some fun. We signed Joey up for kareoke without telling him. Joey walked out of the bathroom to hearing his name being called. He walked up on stage and found out that the song was an nine minute Spanish love ballad. He improvised the song El Gato de la Obscuridad, singing falsetto on one knee reaching his one hand skyward up to the Latin love gods. No one except for him and his four drunk friends found it even slightly amusing. He said it was fun for the first two minutes, but the next seven felt like four hours.

On Tuesday, we decided to do some touristy stuff since weíre touristy tourists. We went to Hollywood Blvd and I got my picture taken next to my favorite movie starís star, Godzilla. The way he dropkicked Megalonís ass in Godzilla vs. Megalon makes the movie-star Governer Arnold look like heís about as tough as a 10 year old girl who just lost her Barbie doll. Even more relevant than Godzilla we went to Hollywood Forever cemetery to see the newly erected Johnny Ramone statue. Hey Ho Letís Go. RIP Johnny. An afternoon hike in Hollywood hills to look at the big Hollywood sign came next and then we went to ABC studios...

Our friend Jay writes for this TV show called Will and Grace which neither Joey nor I have ever heard of. Although apparently itís been on for a while and is quite successful. He got us these special production passes. There are a bunch of shows filmed there and people walking around from CSI, Bernie Mac, and that 70s show, but we didnít recognize any of them. As far as Iím concerned if your not R2-D2, youíre not a star. We went to the set and we hung out in Willís apartment and in the set of the Manchester, NY house specific to the episode and then ate the actorsí food backstage. When the TV show started filming it was cool. It was like watching a DVD, going to special features, and clicking on outakes because the actors and actresses kept screwing everything up. It was actually impressive so how well they did the exact same thing so many times in a row. They recorded a live laugh track, so if you watch the episode about the Manchester house when it comes on in a couple weeks and you listen carefully, you can hear both Joey and I not laughing. (No offense Jay, we liked the jokes YOU wrote!!!) We left the studio after only three scenes to head to Beverly Hills...

In Beverly Hills we drank for free because Mersh knows everyone in LA. The other funny thing about LA is that everyone does everything. Our bartender Anthony was the bass player for Manwhore, serving us tequilla shots and then the next day someone showed me his part in the movie Legally Blonde 2. Haha, Anthony you look funny in a suit being all serious. We continued the week by partying some more in Studio City, Sherman Oaks, and wherever the heck weíll end up tonight. Tomorrow we head to Long Beach for 22 days ride across the Pacific Ocean on a freighter...Until next time! Your favorite physicist,
