Egerton won’t stop fiddling with the curtains. The sun is streaming through the huge window next to us and, rather than have us bask in the heat like two lazy hounds, he’s up and tugging the thing along inch by inch to block out the light. “Flipping heck,” he mutters, in a delicate Welsh lilt, losing a ‘g’ and an ‘h’ so it almost sounds like one word. That was extremely Welsh, I tell him, which makes him grin.
TELLY. What a great invention. Literally loads of great things to stare at instead of doing legitimately boring adult stuff, like checking that serious looking envelope on your doormat, or washing the bins out. Telly can be extravagant fantasy - like Game of Thrones, where the threats to humanity and regular gougings really put your problems into perspective - but it can also be relatable and emotionally nourishing, like 2017's megahit Big Little Lies.
Don’t bask in what you’ve already achieved, look ahead, the best is yet to come and so on. I like his philosophy – in principle, anyway. Murphy paints a picture of a man in constant motion, refusing to stay still. And that’s great, but… come on. 28 Days Later. Breakfast On Pluto. Even his current starring role as the face of Stella McCartney’s new menswear campaign is more bewitching than it has any right to be. Surely this kind of work deserves to be basked in, doesn’t it? Live it up!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
