The American Mastodon once made a film about a young man who, after having his arm severed in an accident at a grain elevator, returned to his home town after a stint in the hospital only to find his lady philandering with another, not-armless man. Unable to express his emotions through the naturally restrictive limit of words, he did what anybody would do: he killed a deer, removed its head, and left it on the girl's doorstep.
Before you think the AM is a psycho who had intended the film he made to be his own severed deer's head to an old lover, he should inform you that the story was based on an actual event that happened in the AM's hometown. A boy aged about 13, infuriated that his unrequited decided to end their relationship, shot a deer in the woods behind his house, cut off its head, went to the girl's house and, when she opened the door, threw the head inside and ran away.
The AM is intrigued by that thin red (blue? green?) line of human expression where words fail and only actions can communicate to others how you feel.
For instance: The father then walked into the garage, picking up a propane tank, a can of gasoline and a lighting device, police Capt. Tony Rode said. He smashed the van's window, got inside and set it ablaze, despite attempts by the Marines to stop him, Rode said.
