Take me back to September 23, 2004

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is September 23, 2004, and it's a Thursday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Libra. Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves.

The earthy smells of autumn have started to fill the air. In America, the song "Goodies" by Ciara is at the top of the singles charts, while "Call On Me" by Eric Prydz is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Charmed", "One Tree Hill", "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", and "Joey". In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores.

People are using a software program called LimeWire to share music, software, and videos. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for computer viruses. Smartphones don't exist yet. There are no Androids or iPhones. Cameras on phones are quickly becoming the norm. However, the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality.

Internet users are using MSN Messenger and AIM to chat with each other online. It's 2004, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Usher, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, OutKast, Mario Winans, the Terror Squad and Ciara. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as ODB, Dimebag Darrell, Lamont Bentley, and Johnnie Cochran would all still be alive.
