Friday 26 August 2011

It was Friday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 26, 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 The Magician King by Lev Grossman 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 Black Mirror III: Final Fear or Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
