You work five days a week, loading crates down on the dock. Well, not really, because that would be, like, really heavy work. And ports are increasingly automated now anyways, so you probably couldn’t get a job loading crates even if you wanted to. Bet their cafeteria doesn’t even serve gingerbread lattes. Blue collar or not, there’s something in the rebellious spirit of punk rock that has naturally found a kinship with the romantic anthems of heartland rock.
Formed in 2003, this year marks 15 years of A Day To Remember. And the Ocala pop-punks are marking it with the ‘15 Years In The Making’ tour, which kicks off in Michigan, Grand Rapids on February 20. I don’t remember during which of those years ADTR became one of my favourite bands. Nor when or how they even came into my life. I just feel like they’ve always been there, soundtracking my days with huge pop choruses and brain-rattling breakdowns.
Transformers today, film-wise, is both a box-office blockbuster and a Razzies regular. The franchise – starring gigantic alien robots disguising themselves as Earth vehicles and technology – has seen the gulf between cold profits and critical praise widen remarkably since the first live-action movie of 2007 proved a palatable exercise in both old-timer nostalgia and newcomer satisfaction. But that wasn’t the robots in disguise’s debut on the silver screen.
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".
