It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 20, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of January people in US were listening to TiK ToK by Ke$ha. Blue Valentine, directed by Derek Cianfrance, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Open by Andre Agassi was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Tiere bis unters Dach. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Blaster Master: Overdrive or Age of Hammer Wars.
