In Lewisville, Denton County, Texas, a 14 year old student attending Killian Middle School, was arrested for sniffing hand sanitizer. The student borrowed the teacher's hand sanitizer, put some on his hand, rubbed it, and then sniffed it. The sniffing is what got the young man in trouble. He was arrested by the police, fingerprinted, and his mug photo taken. Four months after the incident, the Lewisville District Attorney dropped the charges. Not because the whole incident was stupid, but because their office could not locate a law the child violated! Political correctness runs amuck by the re-educators in the re-education camps.

Era, Texas. The culmination of my first film project for prod 200. I didn't realize it at the time, but as I was shooting I had in mind that everything I was seeing was through the eyes of someone who had died. Therefore, this is put together to feel like the memories of someone who is passing away-- perhaps thoughts of home at their last moments. Shot in Era, Texas (Denton County). Amazing song is Where Do My Bluebird Fly by Tallest Man on Earth.
