Keeping up with the plethora of new music releases is never easy. Every day there are a handful of bands that drop new tracks, albums and more. To keep you up to date, we're sharing the top new tunes of the week you might've missed out on. Pop punk band Knuckle Puck are gearing up to release their sophomore album Shapeshifter this October. After listening to their hard-hitting tune "Double Helix" from the record, we could not be more stoked for it to finally drop.
Remember when you were 8 years old and you told yourself that you could get your swing to go all the way around the swing set? Or how about when you were 10 years old and you decided that you wanted to be an astronaut so you could meet aliens? And remember when you were 6 years old and you thought the world was full of fun and games? I remember. When did we stop thinking the world was this great place full of endless possibilities? What led us to become as cynical about the world as our parents?
Beautycon—A magical place where all the top gurus and brands come together to celebrate all things, well, beauty. This past Saturday, I attended Beautycon LA at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the first time in my life. And it was as every bit amazing as I expected it to be. I rolled up to the convention center around noon and made my way into the expo hall where all the glorious booths were waiting to greet me. Walking into Beautycon was like walking into a wonderland.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
