Wednesday 21 January 2009

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see planets position on January 21, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Just Dance by Lady GaGa. Coraline, directed by Henry Selick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Return Of Depression Economics And The Crisis Of 2008 by Paul Krugman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Trust Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel or AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
