A Hand-Built Bed

I heard a strange and beautiful story tonight. One of the founders of Vice magazine built—for his girlfriend, and with his own hands—a bed. They slept together in this bed. Some time afterwards, a friend of the person telling this story seduced the girlfriend—this was a female friend—and convinced the girlfriend to cheat on the founder of Vice, in the bed he built. An emasculating circumstance.

Radiohead’s new album is surprisingly good. I especially like “Reckoner.”
