About 10 years ago, it seemed almost all of the great punk and hardcore bands from the '90s and early aughts had broken up. Now, it’s almost expected every last one outside of Fugazi will reunite. Jawbreaker even just played some shows! Nostalgia’s a powerful force and there’s not much like it when the legends make it count, but an awkward, uninspired, cash-grab reunion can be uniquely grotesque. Fortunately, the Movielife know what they’re getting into.
Billboard’s latest issue features a gripping, personally-exposing Marilyn Manson interview, in which he recounts his last moments with his dying father as well as an elaborate (albeit rather one-sided) beef with Justin Bieber. However, it appears we got the veteran shock-rocker in one of his tamer moods. On Thursday (Sept. 21), The Guardian published a Manson profile in which he inflicted interviewer Alexis Petridis with an array of very Mansonian hi-jinx.
Now that it's late September, we're at last headed into that most hallowed time of the year for sports fans: That magical month or so where all four major American sports are active at once. Baseball is gearing up for its postseason, football is officially in full swing, pucks are being dropped in the hockey preseason and basketball practice gyms nationwide are finally seeing their doors creaked open. It's a sensory overload of box scores, highlight packages and injury reports.
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".
