It was Monday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of June people in US were listening to Viva La Vida by Coldplay. WALL·E, directed by Andrew Stanton, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Comedy Gumbo. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Brothers in Arms or Condemned 2: Bloodshot.
