Students Unleash a Pillow Fight in Manhattan and People Suddenly "Freeze" in Grand Central Station

This is so cool - the first World Pillow-fight Day - pillow-fights in 35 different cities, part of what is being called the urban playground movement that promotes free and fun activities in urban settings through getting a bunch of strangers to participate. Check it out.  I saw another one a while back where a group organized a whole bunch of people to suddenly freeze in place for maybe 5 minutes in Grand Central Station in New York. See below. I must say this reaffirms my faith in humanity - that in the midst of the media promoting unrelenting fear,  people find creative ways to interject a sense of fun into our lives.   Cool.   Now let's just hope that some asshole doesn't ruin it by sueing when they get a pillow burn.

Holy cow that looks like a lot of fun! I've got to see if there is anything planned in Chicago sometime.

Doesn't it? I'd so like to do something like that. I don't have enough gumption to start something like that, though.

I can't remember where or when, but I have seen this and thought it was one of the coolest things ever - Thanks so much for reposting so I can share it with the fam - even my girls know Grand Central Station - I'm sure they'll think it's a hoot!

Yeah, that applause was so heartening because it was like everyone "got it" simultaneously and thought it was cool. Urban art.
And ooh, I see you've got a new fic up and it's Kirill and the red head guy. YUM. Must go read forthwith.
