The brief online description declares: Feathers will fly! It’s still unclear who, exactly, has the means to destroy a real down-filled pillow. But why not find out? San Francisco’s recurring Valentine’s Day pillow fight is scheduled for Saturday at the Justin Herman Plaza around dusk. No charge — just bring yourself, some friends and that extra pillow collecting dust on your top shelf.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I find myself, as I always do at the start of the second week of February, preparing little letters to send to friends and family as a gesture of my gratefulness and love for them. This year I came across a published letter that famous author and Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck wrote to his eldest son in 1958 about falling in love. Steinbeck starts the letter by saying, “First — if you are in love — that’s a good thing — that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.” The letter is beautifully written and serves as a timeless reminder of the notion “love to us all.” It is worth a read, especially at this time of year, when love is in the air.

A$AP Rocky discussed his sex life in an interview published on Tumblr last week. Here are some delightful excerpts:

 

YOUR ULTIMATE SEXUAL FANTASY AND/OR FETISH? GO. PUT ME ON BAE. LOVE U.

A$AP Rocky: I JUST WANNA FUK MADONNA OLD ASS B4 I DIE, FEEL ME, CAN U BLAME ME ?

What’s the weirdest shit a bitch wanted you to do before or during sex?

A$AP Rocky: ONCE WHEN I WAS YOUNG I FUCKED A CHICK IN FRONT HER DISABLED GRANDMOM , SO SICK, LITERALLY , IM ASHAMED… GRANDMOMS LOOKED EXCITED THO.
