Merry Xmas from Bali

    Oh, that tears it, Derek. That really is the best. Christmas Ganesh. I can die with a smile on my face.

    Figured you’d like it. They love G in these parts.

    The wayang gulick!

    By the way, my good friend Allen (longtime friend of Cooper, too) also played in a Cali gamelan ensemble — I think maybe when he was studying at Cal Arts. He’s worked as an animator and is now doing web design.

    Allen also took a stretch of time not long after the Sandinistas first took control of Nicaragua and lived in Matagalpa, where he made a comic-style home construction manual directed toward campesinos. I think y’all would like him — even though he lives in the greater LA sprawl.
