A hypothetical story about a girl who rides a fixed-gear bike, who gets mixed up with a giant robot. I was thinking about what it would be like to see something monumental from a far distance in the dark, the line between a hallucination and objects obscured by atmospheric perspective. I am a big fan of The Iron Giant and FLCL, and “bike porn”—sexy pictures of sweet custom bikes, sexy girl optional.
