Earlier this year, confrontational electronic pop project and performance art duo the KLF—Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty’s project also referred to as the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, K Foundation, the Timelords, and 2K—officially announced their return. A cryptic poster on a wall on a London street promised new work on August 23, 2017, which was later revealed as the release date for a book called 2023: A Trilogy. That’s not all that’s coming that day, NPR points out.
“Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator” has arrived—a dating simulation game where you, a dad, attempt to court hot single dads. As previously reported, the game features a cameo from the Toronto punk band PUP, who are playing the venue you visit during a date with “Cool Dad.” The game also features a new theme song from Baths. Check out Will Wiesenfeld’s dreamy “Dream Daddy” theme below.
Comedy Central’s meme-centric game show “@midnight with Chris Hardwick” is coming to an end, Deadline reports. The final show, which is also the 600th episode, will air on August 4. The decision to end the show was reportedly made mutually between Comedy Central, Hardwick, and Funny or Die (the show’s production company). While the majority of the contestants on the show were comedians, Hardwick also welcomed a number of musicians. “Weird Al” once joked about Radiohead on the show.
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".
