A “Romantic” Valentine’s Fight Tonight!

I have two pillows on my bed at all times. One of them is for sleeping; the other one is for pillow fights!

I am a hopeless romantic, but I hate Valentine’s. Is that weird? I am a hopeless romantic … but never one or the other. Being hopeless is just pitiful and a man who is simply romantic loses all his street cred. What? Don’t judge me!

That’s why this year I will again be attending The Great San Francisco Pillow Fight.

Sometimes I ask myself “Why is it every time Valentines comes I’m putting shoes in my pillow case instead of chocolates in a box?” I’ve decided it’s not because I’m jaded … it’s because I know how to have fun! This year I am gathering up a posse of my friends and attacking the plaza. You gotta travel deep if you wanna survive the war! I’ve been by myself before, but it’s more fun in a group. I have however heard of people going alone and miraculously finding true love. I say, “When was that?” Right after they walloped you in the face with their drool stained pillow? SEXY!

On that note… join me this Thursday at 6pm at Herman Plaza… I’ll be using my pillow as a way to show my love. Some survival tips from a veteran pillow fighter:

1. Don’t start fights you can’t win!

(I no longer hit kids in the head as they run by… their retaliation swings are generally waist high… I’m tired of getting hit in the “head!” I mean crotch!)

2. When in doubt refer to rule #1

Sometimes I worry that I’d rather spend valentines hitting bros with pillows over asking a girl to go solo with me to dinner. Then I simply shrug and say “Eh!” So if you find yourself extremely broke and beautiful this year. Grab the pillow from your bed (please put a fresh pillow case on it) and get your broke ass to Herman Plaza. I’m certain your true love is waiting for you … or at least a bruised jaw … maybe ego?!

I am the co-founder of Balanced Breakfast, a meetup for music industry professionals. No, I do not sing or play any instruments ... but I have tried! My passion for music began at 7 when my parents bought me a drum set. I was BAD at drums. So I moved on, joined the school band, and played clarinet. I was BAD at the clarinet. Trying and failing at instruments continued through elementary school and into college. It turns out that while I could recognize good music; I lacked the skill to make it.

Now I'm broke, beautiful, and writing about music for Stuart...
