I'm a writer, copywriter and screenwriter who's great at making information come alive for the internet.

Suddenly, all the gridlocked commuters and buckled-up kids were set free. You didn't need access to a Porsche (or a lawyer), just a few coins or a console at home (if you were lucky) and a need for speed. Here are four of the most influential, or at least unique, games of the decade.

If you're travelling to Sri Lanka, chances are you haven't blocked out much time to check out the capital.

When I was 15 in the early 2000s my friends and I used to bomb trains. I remember stealing Posca pens, emptying out the fluorescent paint then filling them up with a mixture of stamp ink and my mum's nail polish remover.

This is the perfect eulogy for Banksy's anti-establishment message. The best angle I could come up with to cover Melbourne's new Banksy exhibition was to break in and tag the place up. That's what one of the hooded truth-speakers in his stencils would do.
