Saturday 21 May 2011

It was Saturday, under the sign of Gemini (see planets position on May 21, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Rolling In The Deep by Adele. X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Division. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bit.Trip Complete or Deadliest Warrior: Legends.
