It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 22, 2012). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Whistle by Flo Rida. Frances Ha, directed by Noah Baumbach, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Inbetweeners. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 007 Legends or The Basement Collection.
