Thursday 12 July 2012

It was Thursday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Farouk Omar. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beatmania IIDX 20: Tricoro or Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
