It was Thursday, under the sign of Gemini. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Lollipop by Lil Wayne. Young People Fucking, directed by Martin Gero, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Host by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Jace Hall Show. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath or Dragon Ball: Origins.
