Whatever happened to Daphne & Celeste? At the turn of the millennium, sass-talking teens Karen ‘Daphne’ DiConcetto and Celeste Cruz released two of the era’s most demented pop songs, “Ooh Stick You” and “U.G.L.Y.” They followed up those two smashes – pitched-up playground taunts torn straight from the pages of Malcolm McLaren’s wrong-pop rulebook – with a quickie album, and vanished amid a hail of projectiles at Reading Festival in 2000, never to be seen again. Until now, that is.
Alex Garland’s Annihilation is a genetic anomaly of a movie. You could call it science fiction, though the technology it depicts is strictly present-day. An ecological disaster flick, though there isn’t a supertornado in in sight. A horror film, perhaps – but that would be altogether too reductive a take. A little bit basic. A little bit human. Maybe that’s why Paramount offloaded the film on to Netflix for its UK release, after test screenings had viewers weeping into their popcorn in confusion.
Satoshi Kon was one of the great cinematic conjurers. In the 90s and 00s, the cult anime director produced a slim body of work collapsing the boundaries between dreams and reality, space and time, and, ultimately, the nature of consciousness itself. But with his final project before his death from cancer at the age of 46, one last leap into the unknown may have proved beyond even him.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
