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.”
