Jake Bugg says the success of his debut album, which hit Number One in the charts yesterday (October 21), is a victory for guitar music. I guess it proves my point – people still want to hear guitar music. It’s my job to keep that X Factor shit off the top of the charts. Bugg’s album, ‘Jake Bugg’ was up against the enduringly popular Mumford and Sons album ‘Babel’ and ‘Glassheart’, the latest release by former X Factor winner Leona Lewis.
Back in the ‘80s, when the Suicide Squad first appeared in their own DC book, comics were printed with the four-colour process, a mesh of bright dots that rendered the worlds of superheroes in lurid, eye-popping, pulse-quickening tones. In its neon colours, its breakneck pace and its brilliant, booming soundtrack, Suicide Squad is the closest Hollywood has come to the experience of recreating that world without resorting to gimmicks like frames, captions and speech bubbles.
Recent Ron Howard documentary ‘The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years’ is being aired on Channel 4 tonight (January 5) at 9pm. It shows the beginning of a cultural shift we’re still experiencing today, says Dan StubbsReceived wisdom has it that The Beatles got cool right about the time they started smoking pot, ditched the suits and got busy with the facial hair. The mop top years, with their wobbly heads and songs about holding hands, are presumed naff by comparison.
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".
