The best thing about Thatgamecompany’s Journey is its silence. There’s no dialogue, no text, no backstory or narration—just a weird, lonely world to get lost in and a beautiful score to keep you company. Whatever depth or emotion players find in that game largely comes down to the decision to avoid coherent language. It’s a master class in “show, don’t tell,” in a way that only videogames can accomplish. It’s a lesson PolyKnight Games should have heeded while making Innerspace.
When you think of comedy, you might still get mental images of clean-cut white guys in collared shirts doing their best Seinfeld homage in front of a brick wall. As fun as it might be to stay stuck in the club days of the ‘80s and ‘90s, comedy has exploded into a roiling free-for-all this century. There’s no one way to be funny. Potter Stewart’s decree in Jacobellis v. Ohio applies to comedy as much as it does obscenity: we know it when we see it.
Somehow Snipperclips keeps getting overlooked. We’re guilty of it, too: the Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together DLC came out a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, and we’re just now writing about it in the barren depths of another unwelcome January.
@hamburgerphone it was constant. Gillooly became one of those things he would just say over and over in lieu of an actual joke. plus the Olympics were on CBS and Letterman’s mom did live remotes from Lillehammer so his show was basically all-Olympics already.
@hamburgerphone as a younger person what was your familiarity with that story before I, Tonya and also do you think it convincingly portrayed the fact that “Gillooly” made up 90% of the words that Letterman said on TV between 1994 and 1995
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".
