During the 6000 km road-trip along Route 66 we talked to homeless people, meet an ex-arsonist, pretended we were Lebanese working for Radio Lebanon, and shot big guns. America is just as crazy as I always thought it was. The roads are huge and there are plenty of burger joints. The beer is absolutely better than its reputation with microbrewery’s popping up almost anywhere. Even the criminals are friendly and welcoming and the police let us of with a warning when we were caught speeding. The media is crazy and the information people have about the Middle East is normally punchlines picked up from Fox News.
For me personally Hollywood was an enormous disappointment. When I went to Universal Studios to tell them I was ready to work, they wanted me to pay money to enter the area. God knows that would not have happened in Beirut. After that I tried to call Napoleon Dynamite’s Aunt. Twice. And she still didn’t pick up. But I did meet one of the most famous Lebanese bloggers, Gino Raidy. So I left Hollywood a bit disappointed because I realized Hollywood isn’t as cool as they say it is. It’s like a scam or a tourist trap for actors or something. Luckily my girlfriend, Adrian, came to LA and helped me get out of there.
Anyways, below you can see the road-trip movie and 66 pics from Route 66.

Nowadays we also have Admiral P and Store P (there is actually a guy called Tande P too but he has gone missing), so it is bit complicated to find out who is the Original P. We made a mini documentary to find out!

Jewish British MP Sir Gerald Kaufman discussing the situation in Israel!
“Most of my parents’ families – because my parents came here as refugees – most of my parents families were murdered in the Holocaust. When the Germans came to the town from which my mother came in Poland, Stachov, they lined up all the Jews to march to the railway station to be put in cattle-wagons. But for those who were not well enough to march, they killed them on t... [more]
