Sydney photographer William Yang was unexpectedly reunited with a former boyfriend, Allan Booth, while walking through ward 17 of Sydney’s St Vincent’s hospital. It was 1988; they had not seen each other in four years.
My old friend and I met in a theatre foyer in Melbourne to see a play set a century ago. I was down from my home in Sydney, visiting family, and he was here from New York, doing the same. There was a kiss on the cheek, no doubt a hug. I couldn’t tell you who kissed who, because in normal circumstances I wouldn’t have given our greeting a second thought. What will stay in my mind is the elderly man, a stranger, who approached us. Marvellous was the word he used.
Gwendoline Christie watched Top of the Lake four times before she finally summoned the courage to email the director, Jane Campion, pleading to be cast in the sequel. But first, she ran a draft past a friend: “If you read this and think I sound like an idiot, I won’t send it to Jane and we’ll never speak of it again,” she said. The fact that I’ve come to meet Christie and her co-stars on the show’s Bondi beach set is proof that the email was sent, and that Campion liked what she read.
@BernardZuel@_BowlofCherries@MichaelH_PhD@BreakfastNews Look, 20 years ago I walked out of the cinema mid-way through Woop Woop. Rewatched it last year and laughed and enjoyed. On this basis, I suggest watching Swinging Safari in 2038. Also: will Kylie be releasing Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep? Asking for a friend.
Just finishing the last episode of The Leftovers. Such an inventive , wry, affecting series: false gods, grief, doomsday cults, capitalist cynicism, blended families, love and surprise: S3 mostly filmed in Oz. Gulpilil! Why weren’t more people talking about this brilliant 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 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".
