"People feel this stuff. Half a million Youtube views in a few days. MIA isn’t just reciting things that she saw in an image search. She went out and built drones, or had someone build them, and people are feeling it. People went to see Spring Breakers multiple times not because they wanted to rob people or because they couldn’t go out and get drunk and naked if they wanted, but because the manic pattern of media image was saying something that they needed to hear. In this glitch-clash of future-weird, there is something we were waiting to hear."

Police searching for two-year-old Chayson Basinio knew it was a race against time to find the missing child, who had reportedly disappeared from a supermarket car park. The local judge opened an inquiry for kidnapping and sequestration and police divers dredged a lake, fearing the child may have drowned. As the days passed without any leads or clues, detectives at Allier near Moulins in the Auvergne prepared to warn relatives who had alerted them that they could find no trace of the boy. Which, in the circumstances, was hardly surprising. In fact, neither Chayson Basinio nor his parents existed – except in the virtual world of social media. Police had found photographs allegedly of the boy and his father, Rayane Basinio, 20, on Facebook, but absolutely no evidence that they were real.
