Caught By The Reaper – William 'Poppa Neutrino' Pearlman

4th February 2011

The beauty of that dreamy ten minute drift across the internet, the bit where you lazily click through to stories online – bored curiosity at a Tweet reference or a Facebook link – is that occasionally you unearth something so crazy, so inspiring you think you must be imagining things. This story I found via a Tweet (and have lost the original contact – apologies and thanks!) – it’s an obituary in an American newspaper remembering the life of a traveling man, it’s like a one page pitch for a new Terry Gilliam movie. You kind of need to read it to get the full effect. Click here to read William “Poppa Neutrino” Pearlman’s obituary from the Washington Post and here for the Floating Neutrinos website.
