Saturday 24 July 2010

It was Saturday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of July people in US were listening to California Gurls by Katy Perry. Erotikon, directed by Mauritz Stiller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Passage by Justin Cronin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vacuum with Gal Gabai. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battle Dex or Captain Tsubasa: Gekito no Kiseki Captain Tsubasa: New Kick Off.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
