The influence of Daniel Johnston’s pleading, lo-fi music has been far reaching ever since Kurt Cobain donned a shirt touting the singer-songwriter’s album “Hi, How Are You” on the red carpet of the Video Music Awards, in 1992. Johnston has long struggled with schizophrenia and an extreme, hallucinatory form of bipolar disorder, which has resulted in terrifying manic episodes.
Mike Scheidt is the guitarist and vocalist behind YOB, which practices an extreme style of rock called doom metal. The music is bleak and slow, and tends to follow a format codified on early Black Sabbath records: spiritualist-satanic homilies sung over pitched-down guitar riffs played at a trudge. Most bands don’t stray far from the script, for fear of the dreaded “false metal” tag. But the genre’s strict posturing suggests that feelings of actual doom are not necessarily required.
Decades before hip-hop was born, in New York, swing dancers (like the couple pictured above) favored a hop called the Lindy. On June 19 and June 27, even novices will have a chance to get into the swing on Pier Forty-five, off Christopher Street, in Hudson River Park. The festivities kick off at six-thirty, with a dance lesson; then, at seven-fifteen, the Baby Soda Jazz Band starts to play and a dance party ensues. As of July 11, the action switches to salsa, with a tutorial followed by a d.j.
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".
