Sorry to start your week off with this, but it’s the hard truth — that super rad Gilmore Girls Lego set idea we got excited about last year isn’t happening. The set was submitted to Lego Ideas, a site Lego uses to crowdsource set ideas. Luke’s Diner quickly racked up the 10,000 supporters needed to make it to the official review phase (no surprise there), but it will move no further.
It’s going to be a rough year for Game of Thrones fans. The show’s final season isn’t airing until 2019, and absolutely no one is getting their hopes up that George R.R. Martin will actually drop Winds of Winter. Better days are ahead with planned prequel shows and the final two books coming out in maybe ten years, but 2018 is going to be sorely lacking in dragons and scary ice people. So, we’ll make do with some pretty excellent fan art.
A lot of folks out there are making some great Pokémon fan art, but few are doing it better than Seoxys! She’s still turning out more entries into her series of Pokémon Fusions, so we’re back to check out her new work alongside a bunch of other awesome fusions we didn’t feature the first time around. If you want to keep up with her work as she makes it, be sure to head over to her DeviantArt page or follow her on Facebook and Instagram!
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".
