You should be made up like a ghost, or Frankenstein’s monster, or a mummy. Or if you want to go a bit further, Ash from Evil Dead or Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films, or even that dumb doll on a bike from Saw - any character from a horror movie gets a pass. Sure, these characters haven’t been around forever, but the sentiment is there - you’re upholding the tradition of ‘scariness’, of ‘spookiness’, of good ole life-ending at the claws of a snarling werewolf. You know what?
Bit of binging never hurt anyone did it? Smashing a whole tub of Ben and Jerry’s, going a bit overboard on the Jägerbombs, rinsing an entire Netflix show in two days - it’s all harmless fun. But we’re not here to talk about ice cream or alcohol today - we’re all about Netflix, and what the UK have been clapping their eyes on the most. Netflix have discovered a new type of TV-addict: the binge-racer.
Your dad can eat the hottest curry on the menu, can’t he? And so can you. You and your dad, ordering the hottest curry on the menu, eyes locked, fake smiles plastered across your show-off faces, guts warbling like a pot of ratatouille on a stove, resolutely not enjoying any part of it, regretting everything.
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".
