Thursday 12 August 2010

It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 12, 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 The Search by Nora Roberts was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Offspring. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Karate Champ or Dragon Ball: Origins 2.
