Sunday 26 August 2012

It was Sunday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Whistle by Flo Rida. Lawless, directed by John Hillcoat, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Fifty Shades Darker by E L James was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Big City. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dillon's Rolling Western or Fable: The Journey.
