It was Friday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 20, 2004). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Slow Jamz by Twista. In UK Take Me To The Clouds Above by LMC vs U2 was in the top 5 hits. Nacktschnecken, directed by Michael Glawogger, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while Seduced By Moonlight by Laurell K. Hamilton was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Kingdom Hospital. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Airforce Delta Strike or Blockland.
