Tuesday 23 August 2016

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 23, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheap Thrills by Sia Featuring Sean Paul. Arrival, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Brimstone. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Marvel's Avengers or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
