bvIf you stayed uptown today, you missed the 2nd annual New York City Pillow Fight –organized by the public art group newmindspace, it attracted over three hundred pillow-wielding New Yorkers to Union Square at 2:00 to wail on complete strangers.  Many in the crowd wore colorful and attention-drawing outfits, including a banana suit and several incarnations of William Wallace.  Also of note: some guy who somehow lost his shirt in the fray, another who somehow found a woman’s shirt and underwear in the mayhem, and the ironic smiley-faced pillow I got hit with repeatedly. Bwog wants a repeat!
