It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins. Always, directed by Steven Spielberg, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1989 while The Eleventh Hour by Graeme Base was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Stolen. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Boomer's Adventure in ASMIK World or Bruce Lee Lives.
