It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 8, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of September people in US were listening to Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5. 50/50, directed by Jonathan Levine, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battlefield Play4Free or Atom Zombie Smasher.
