Two women, one song, one Nicolas Cage movie, and one Grammy award: This is the wild story of ‘How Do I Live’This is a story about two women, one song, and one movie about many convicts. Our exciting journey culminates with this strange clip presented by Gloria Estefan and Dwight Yoakam’s turtleneck. Yes. This really happened. It was a spectacle. We’ll get back to Yoakam’s turtleneck soon. But let’s start at the beginning. The year was 1997.
It was a mistake, ok? If this was the worst thing I had ever done in my marriage, then so be it. Plus, the Dallas Mavericks won their first championship in franchise history less than 24 hours ago... she can't be that mad at me, right? RIGHT? Those were the words I said to myself as I sat alone in my empty apartment, waiting for my wife to come home. I sat at the dinner table, sleep deprived, un-showered, and only halfway recovered from one helluva championship hangover.
On Saturday the 27th of May, Blakes of the Hollow in Enniskillen played host to ‘Full Moon Fever’ who I had been wanting to see live for some time. This is a band that collectively has many years of touring, performing and recording experience between them. In some incarnation or another, I have seen the individual members of the band perform live. I knew with just going on this knowledge that I would hard pressed not to be entertained.
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".
