"Poppa Neutrino has all the characteristics of a man who could have built a fortune," asserts The New Yorker's Alec Wilkinson, who is featured in RANDOM LUNACY. Yet the radically itinerant Neutrino's belief that "rent is the thing that beats us," caused him instead to choose a homeless existence for himself and his family. Unencumbered by possessions (save for a video camera kept rolling since the 1980s), he led his "tribe" on a quest for pure freedom and adventure. "Some people are nomadic by nature," claims his wife, Betsy. Their self-taught family band called The Flying Neutrinos was literally singing for their supper as they roamed the world, while Poppa's camera filmed a life of sleeping in cars and trucks and on remote beaches, as well as the family's time spent traveling with a Mexican circus.
