Wednesday 18 August 2010

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 18, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Love The Way You Lie by Eminem. Burning Bright, directed by Carlos Brooks, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Empire Of The Summer Moon by S. C. Gwynne was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Offspring. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 100 Rogues or Avalon Heroes.
