It was Saturday, 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. Hancock, directed by Peter Berg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Comedy Gumbo. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BrainPipe or Race Driver: Grid.
