RED

I had completely forgotten about Brian Dowling. The first season of Big Brother was very popular, as the concept was fresh at the time. I was just a child back then, but I still remember how excited my babysitter was to watch it. There was also a "live" channel that streamed the house 24/7. However, the sound would be muted whenever they started talking about anything that might offend people.

I went to see the Planet of the Apes with my friend. I still remember how it was a sunny day and I was wearing a Wu-Tang hoodie!

Take me back to July 27th, 2001!

Let's go back in time!

The date is July 27th, 2001, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Leo. Currently, people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual. In America, the song U Remind Me by Usher is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Eternity / The Road To Mandalay by Robbie Williams is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Planet of the Apes (2001) is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is continuing to explode in popularity. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers started to allow users to send SMS messages to people on different networks.

In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. Meanwhile, the Nokia 3310 is one of the most popular cell phones on the market at the moment. Stores across the world are currently selling a wide range of custom covers for the phone. It's 2001, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, OutKast, Crazy Town, Destiny's Child, Usher, Alicia Keys, Blu Cantrell and Jennifer Lopez.

An outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom is currently causing a crisis in the British agriculture and tourism sectors. Cows and sheep are currently being killed in an effort to halt the disease. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Aaliyah, Thuy Trang, George Harrison and Left Eye would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Touched by an Angel", "Friends", "Sex and the City" and "Becker".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Diablo II", "Mario Tennis", "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask" and "Max Payne". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Friends", "Bob the Builder", "The Amanda Show" and "Grounded for Life". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Razor (scooter), Tekno the Robotic Puppy, Bratz dolls and the Game Boy Advance.
