Have you ever wanted to be buried on top of Eleanor Rigby, the possible subconscious inspiration for the Beatles song of the same name? Well, now’s your chance! The Guardian reports that the deed for the grave of the woman who is buried in St. Peter’s churchyard in Woolton, Liverpool — where Paul McCartney and John Lennon spent time growing up — will be auctioned off next month. Bidding is expected to land somewhere between £2,000 ($2,570) and £4,000 ($5,100).
Brand New is poised to land their first #1 album on the Billboard charts with Science Fiction, which they surprise-released last Thursday.

Music Traitors, and was only made available on streaming services over the weekend.
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood played a rare stripped-down show as a duo Sunday night (Aug. 20) at the Macerata Sferisterio. It was a benefit show for the Italian region of Le Marche, which suffered a huge earthquake around this time last year. They performed a number of rarities: “Faust Arp” and the unreleased “Follow Me Around,” both for the first time since 2010; “A Wolf At The Door” for the first time since 2012; Yorke’s solo song “Cymbal Rush” for the first time since 2008.
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".
