It was Monday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 30, 2004). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Lean Back by Terror Squad. In UK Thunderbirds / 3AM by Busted was in the top 5 hits. Ray, directed by Taylor Hackford, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while Imperial Hubris by Anonymous was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Epitafios.
