I wasn’t going to write anything today. I wasn’t going to post anything to Facebook or Twitter or whatever — except for lyrics, maybe. I wasn’t going to say anything about David Bowie’s impact on my life because, you know, who cares about me? But I received email after email and text after text telling me “you’re the first person I thought of when I heard the news” and I decided, OK. Sure. Maybe this won’t be the best post.
I think we can all agree that Legos are the best toy ever. And YouTube videos in which Lego people act out movies and such are the perfect way to break up a dreary day. Well, put in your headphones and close that Excel doc. We bring you: The entire Star Wars saga told via Legos... in two minutes and 13 seconds. This video, which hit YouTube on Star Wars day (which also brought us Hans Solo Yourself from the JibJab folks), has already racked up more than 100,000 views.
Broen Dance Out Their Flaws in ‘Pride’Norwegian band Broen is out today with the video for “Pride,” off of their 2017 album I <3 Art (Bella Union).Â Check out the video now, plus a statement from the band below on how the video came to be. The video was shot in Trondheim, Norway, in April 2016 by Sigurd Ytre Arne and Jenny Berger Myhre. The choreography is done by May Stene Fossheim. Dancing is a big part of music for us, so it felt very right for us to do a video where we got to dance.
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".
