Friday 8 January 2010

It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 8, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of January people in US were listening to TiK ToK by Ke$ha. The Spy Next Door, directed by Brian Levant, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Tiere bis unters Dach. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Castlevania: Harmony of Despair or DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue.
