Thursday 7 August 2008

It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Tropic Thunder, directed by Ben Stiller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Sail by James Patterson, Howard Roughan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing American McGee's Grimm or Corpse Craft: Incident at Weardd Academy.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at August 07 across the years.
