There are a few things that the city of Los Angeles just cannot function without; The 405, eternal sunshine, and the voice of Mimi Chen coming out of the radio on Sundays. Fortunately, we don’t have to live without them for long. We’ve had “Carmageddon”, we have the occasional rainy day, and for the past few months, we’ve had no Mimi. A few months ago, 100.3 changed formats and a key part of our city was silenced. The airwaves haven’t been the same since.
The interview was conducted in the midst of his “Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour”, a grueling sojourn around the world that began in 2016, was extended through October of this year, and is slated to continue on in 2018 due to popular demand. To add to Wilson’s already hectic schedule, he released his first ever solo anthology Playback, a retrospective that covers more than thirty years of solo efforts, and includes both live and studio tracks, and two brand new tracks.
Just in case you think I stopped attending events at the Morrison Hotel Gallery at Sunset Marquis, here you go! Last night I was in attendance at the gallery for none other than the man who inspired me to pick up a camera and shoot rockstars; Neal Preston. If you’re into rock music (and I’m assuming you are if you read my posts), then you have to know the name Neal Preston. If you’re a fan of Led Zeppelin, then you really have to know Neal.
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".
