It was Thursday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Boom Boom Pow by The Black Eyed Peas. Up, directed by Pete Docter, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Film Riot. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Beatmania IIDX 17: Sirius or Blood of Bahamut.
