Tuesday 2 August 2011

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 2, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. The Help, directed by Tate Taylor, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Happy Birthday by Danielle Steel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chaos Code or Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution.
