D uring the week of September 10, 2007, “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” by Soulja Boy had just barely seized the spot at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 from “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie. Do you remember the Soulja Boy dance that everyone seemed to know at school dances? That trend kicked off at right about this time 10 years ago.

Also during this week in 2007, movies such as Across the Universe (a musical grossing $24, 343, 673 at the box office to date) and Mr. Woodcock (a comedy that grossed $25, 799, 486) hit movie theatres all over America. Who can forget when Billy Bob Thornton played a sinister gym teacher in Mr. Woodcock?

For gamers during this week in September of 2007, NHL ‘08, Skate, and Heavenly Sword were all the rage. Skate was the skateboarding game that pioneered the idea of using an actual skateboard-esque controller (which you could really stand and lean on). It threw every fan of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater video game franchise off, and tested loyalty among skater-gamers.

During the entire first half of September, Khaled Hosseini’s novel A Thousand Splendid Suns was at the top of The New York Times bestseller list. If you like books, or took a world history type of class in high school, you probably read Hosseini’s other renowned novel, The Kite Runner (2003).
