Friday 14 August 2009

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 14, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. The Descent: Part 2, directed by Jon Harris, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while A Colossal Failure Of Common Sense by Lawrence G. McDonald and Patrick Robinson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Fair Lady. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Contra ReBirth or Bumps.
