Thursday 12 May 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 12, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to E.T. by Katy Perry. The Artist, directed by Michel Hazanavicius, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while I'M Over All That by Shirley MacLaine was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Xanadu. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Army Corps of Hell or Dance Central 2.
