Let’s face it: The highlight of this week is probably St. Patrick’s Day. But before you drown yourself in a tub of green beer, take a look at these exciting event happening in Los Angeles. And yes, if you’re looking for something to inspire you on even the most Irish of days (at least here in the U.S.), we’ve got you covered there, too. Have a cinematic St. Patrick’s Day.
Welcome to the first edition of REBEAT RAVER, a Recurrence dedicated to those amazing 1960s music magazines and their illustrious material. I could think of no better subject to kick off the festivities than Mark Lindsay, who saturated the teen rags for the majority of the decade. What was it about him? His tall, dark, handsome, mysterious presence? His soul-soaked R&B voice? His ponytail?
Whether a film screening is more your speed this week or you’re energized to meet your next creative partner, break out your calendars. See a few timely flicks, learn a new way you may be able to get funding for a project or make sure you’re making the most of your self-tapes. Even though it seems impossible to cram one more thing into your already-packed schedule, these events will help inspire and move you forward towards your goals. Draw some parallels between film and sports.
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".
