So apparently that little city of tiny people below the bowling alley is an alternate version of Night Vale, except Josie died years ago and a woman named Erika with an angel tat lives in her house and Cecil didn't know her, Cecil misses and loves Steve Carlsburg, Carlos is a giant monster immortalized with a statue of his boot, Pamela Winchell is still mayor....oh yeah, and they have no sky and it's awful!

It took me a while to figure it out, but this was coooooool.

I really enjoyed this one, but I think this would be a bad one to use to introduce new listeners because it depends so much on noticing the wrongness of Tiny Night Vale (or, perhaps different wrongness, I suppose).

I wonder if the sky disappearing is because that's when Tiny Night Vale split from regular Night Vale, or if Tiny Night Vale was around for a while and the sky disappearing is just when they built the Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex on top of it.

I would bet the sky disappeared when the bowling alley was built. It makes me wonder if the city could be rescued and brought outside...assuming the tiny warriors let them.

At first, I thought we had jumped into the future, and that time had reset itself (again)

I wonder if Tiny Cecil also fell in love instantly with Giant Carlos, or if his awesome terror precludes true love.
