Thursday 25 August 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 25, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) by Katy Perry. Carnage, directed by Roman Polanski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while In The Garden Of Beasts by Erik Larson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dark Matters: Twisted But True. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Anno 2070 or A Certain Magical Index.
