It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 21, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Angelica, directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while America'S Bitter Pill by Steven Brill was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chinese Paladin 6 or Dropsy.
