It was Monday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Disturbia by Rihanna. Death Race, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Life With My Sister Madonna by Christopher Ciccone with Wendy Leigh was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing California Games or Civilization Revolution.
