When Oscar Wilde surmised, “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life,” he could never have fathomed that his observation would one day become a reality in the form of a 24-hour movie marathon of the 1993 Bill Murray time-loop comedy, Groundhog Day. On Tuesday 2 February (aka ‘Groundhog Day’) Liverpool’s Small Cinema will attempt to recreate The Phil Connors Experience by screening Harold Ramis’ film on repeat from 6am until the same time the next day.
When the future denizens of Planet Earth leaf through the annals of history and arrive at the year 2000, which artifact of UK culture will be hailed the most significant? The first series of Big Brother? Kevin & Perry Go Large? S Club 7’s ‘Reach’? It’s hard to pick a favourite, but the new millennium also brought us a plucky animated film from a small British studio then best known for their zany plasticine shorts featuring a man with a penchant for cheese and his long-suffering dog.
Sveltely constructed, starkly monochrome, and fervent in its treatment of amorous matters, Lover For a Day completes what feels like a perfect triptych of miniatures from post-Nouvelle Vague auteur Philippe Garrel. It follows Jealousy and In the Shadow of Women, and is another 70-odd minute film that’s tightly constructed while always conveying the emotional messiness of the tangled relationships at its core.
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".
