Friday 19 August 2011

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 19, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. Courageous, directed by Alex Kendrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Full Black by Brad Thor was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ace Combat: Assault Horizon or Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer.
