In October, Showtime will air a documentary called George Michael: Freedom. The doc follows the journey of the late singer, and will feature Michael narrating his career since the film was in production before Michael’s death in 2016. The film will also feature interviews from various artists, including Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Mary J. Blige.
BBC Three released a clip from the Behind-The-Scenes documentary they filmed at Lollapalooza with Liam Gallagher. The clip features Gallagher making a cup of tea, in the most hilariously rock-and-roll fashion possible. It’s the best thing you’ll see today, possibly ever. Warning: there is a lot of swearing. But, of course there is…it’s Liam Gallagher. I mean, if 4 eliminated jobs and Liam Gallagher being forced to make his own tea isn’tÂ a good enough reason to pay for music, I don’t know what is.
Netflix has asked a Chicago bar to close down, in the most adorable way ever. A “Stranger Things” themed pop-up bar called (fittingly) The Upside Down opened in August for a six-week stint. The bar serves show-themed drinks in a setting that mirrors locations from the show. Because the pop-up became so popular, the owners wanted to extend their run until the Season 2 premiere on October 27th, but when Netflix got wind of that they put their foot down.
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".
