The internet is full of beautiful gifts. Earlier today we were talking about the hilarious beef between Nickelback and Stone Sour, and for some reason Smash Mouth chimed in. That got us talking about All-Star, which led to a Sonic boy tipping us off to this Youtube account of a guy singing the lyrics to All-Star over other songs. Its the best thing of all time. Enjoy a few of the best!
For the last couple months the Foo Fighters have shown off a few new songs. There was ‘The Sky Is A Neighborhood‘, then ‘Run’ and most recently it was ‘La Dee Da.’ We figured something had to be cooking…and we were right. Today they announced their new album “Concrete and Gold” which is coming out September 15th. They describe it as “hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities collide.” There are 11 songs:1. T-Shirt 2. Run 3. Make It Right 4. The Sky Is A Neighborhood 5. La Dee Da 6. Dirty Water 7. Arrows 8.
Starting next month, Goats will be brought to Rundle Park to eat a bunch of weeds in the grass. The city will run this pilot project for a few months and see how they do. A shepherd will keep an eye on them during the day, and they will be housed at night. Kristen Wagner, with the city, talked to Sonic about how its going to work.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
