It's a busy time for My Bloody Valentine, which is not something anyone's said too often. Later this month, the band are releasing remastered versions of their two classic albums, Isn't Anything and Loveless, as well as EPs 1988-1991, a new compilation that brings together their first four EPs alongside a selection of rare and previously unreleased tracks.
Bad news for the authors of the blog Tilda Stardust, a noble attempt to prove that David Bowie and British actor Tilda Swinton are one and the same person through the painstaking juxtaposition of photos of the pair. Because here she is, starring in the video to Bowie's second single from The Next Day, The Stars (Are Out Tonight), as his happily married wife. Never mind that Dave and Tilda don't necessarily make the most convincing suburban couple.
Rapper Tinchy Stryder is playing a surprise gig at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, when he takes part in the opening ceremony for the Uefa Champions League final between Manchester United and Barcelona. A lifelong United fan, Tinchy has written a special set of lyrics to accompany the Champions League anthem. But he told the Guardian: "I can't be biased – the lyrics can't show that I'm supporting one team over the other."
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".
