Inglourious Basterds, directed by Quentin Tarantino, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Rain Gods by James Lee Burke was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Somethin' Suave' Theater. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Anipang or Just Dance.
