A month ago, the world said a sad goodbye to Kumar Pallana, the Wes Anderson regular who lived in one lifetime what most couldn't accomplish in three. A performer, actor, businessman, entrepreneur and more, Pallana seemed to deeply touch everyone who crossed paths with him.

"Wes Anderson starts coming because we have the chess night," Kumar Pallana told The Believer in 2003. about meeting the director in his Texas coffee shop Cosmic Cup. "On Tuesday or Wednesday we have the jazz music. All the musicians I know, I see practicing at home, I say, 'Why don’t you come and practice with us? Let the people know that you are making a noise.' Then we had people like you, the storytellers. They bring their own group, four or five friends. They both came, Owen [Wilson] and Wes. They just finished college, the both of them. They heard that this is the place, every night something different. Wes used to come up and take a lot of pictures. Small camera, you know. And he became a really good friend. We all are, all the [Wilson] brothers."
