Mikey Cahill

Mikey Cahill won a contest in Year 11 to name the school literary magazine Paper Thoughts. It was a sign.

He has written for Inpress, http://www.residentadvisor.net.au, The Australian, DJ Mag, Mixmag but his heart lies with Hit Magazine at the Herald Sun where he looks after the Rock City and Clubland columns as well as all listings that are spruced for the spruiking.
He prefers the title Culture Consultant to journalist. AVANTI!

From: Hasbro, go straight to gaol, do not pass go

Tim says:

They should update other things in the game too.
