Wednesday 11 August 2010

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 11, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Love The Way You Lie by Eminem. Burning Bright, directed by Carlos Brooks, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Offspring. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Castlevania: Harmony of Despair or Disc Drivin'.
