Thursday 21 October 2010

It was Thursday, under the sign of Libra (see planets position on October 21, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Ways to Live Forever, directed by Gustavo Ron, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Pinheads And Patriots by Bill O'Reilly was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gigantic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers or DJMAX Portable Hot Tunes.
