When comedian Garry Shandling died suddenly of pulmonary thrombosis in 2016 at age 66, it was Hollywood’s most celebrated comedians who mourned him the most. Dubbed “the comic’s comic,” Shandling had a profound impact on other stand-up artists, and Shandling’s own inner circle included producer Judd Apatow, who got his start as a writer for Shandling’s Larry Sanders Show in the early ’90s.
Some people get lucky the first time. And then there are those like American Idol alum Rayvon Owen, who tried out for the singing competition “at least four or five times” before he made it to the final three in season 14. “I lost track of how many times I tried out!” he admits to PEOPLE. Owen, who auditioned with a Katy Perry song in season 14, was a favorite of Jennifer Lopez‘s and was even saved once after getting voted off by the audience.
When you’re spending a secluded three months filming a spy thriller in Eastern Europe — during one of the most freezing cold winters on record — it’s not hard to bond with your costars. “It was just a really enjoyable group of people to be around,” Australian actor Joel Edgerton, 43, tells PEOPLE in the new issue about getting close to Jennifer Lawrence, 27, and the entire Red Sparrow crew while shooting in Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava and London. “We’d just mostly go out to dinners and stuff.
After #SandyHook I wondered why vic's families couldn't sue the gun makers and learned about the 2005 bill that protects these corporations from any and all litigation. Ever! We desperately need to work at repealing the #PLCAA
So if we get a 2020 Prez candidate who is openly pro control, and all 200 million of us who are FOR sensible gun laws give that candidate one single dollar, could we win? Fight money with money? No more #NRABloodMoney? Let's just do it then. (Nominating @SenGillibrand?)
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".
