Pablo dice: Marcello Carlin y la Scott Box Set

�Que bueno es cuando uno encuentra un pop writer! Suelo coincidir mucho con el pensamiento de Marcello Carlin, lo �nico que me disgusta un tanto es que sus posteos son largos y no dan para leerlos desde la m�quina (rebalsan de ideas siempre).

Lo que sigue es un copy & paste que publica en The Church of Me sobre la futura caja de un h�roe de la casa: Mr. Scott Walker. N�tense los comentarios al pie sobre las ausencias (Scott querido, �c�mo vas a dejar afuera de una antolog�a tuya "The Old Man's Back Again"?)
