I like to think about the Middle Ages a lot. If I had a time machine it's probably the furthest back I'd go, anything beyond that is boring. It just feels like it was a pretty chill time; everybody was dumb, nobody had an education, and the less you know, right? When I think about the Middle Ages (which is like a few times a week, probably thanks to Medieval Reactions on Facebook) I think about two scenarios: dudes in a field with arrows through their chest and head, and dudes playing the flute in a courtyard in a castle. I'm more of a second scenario kinda guy, if ya know what I mean. But I'll take another scenario I've thought about, that could also be appealing, and that is being part of the regular folk loving life in the village.
I’ve never reviewed anything seriously, as far as I can remember, but the other night I was asked to give my opinion on the new EP by local band Dead City Radio. Now, I don’t understand why anybody would want to know what I thought about their music or somebody else’s music, but because I like to give my opinion, however controversial or otherwise, I lay down in bed in the dark, played the EP on my iPad and opened up Pages on my phone to take some notes.
Feb 20 – Bossino: We Need To "Reset Expectations" About Politics In Gibraltar
In the second instalment in a series of interviews by political blogger Mark Montegriffo, we catch up with Damon Bossino…
By Mark Montegriffo
Candid conversation comes naturally to Damon Bossino. For as long as I’ve known him, I’ve felt a certain ease in his company. Perhaps this is because, like me, he’s a self-confessed political aficionado. Perhaps it is because we were both attracted to the political scene at a very young age (Bossino was active in the Gibraltar National Party from his late teens). Regardless of the cause, Mr. Bossino is undoubtedly a skilled communicator and an incisive thinker but impressively also an honest, down-to-earth and likeable man. So much so, that the structure of the interview went out of the window.
