In today’s bad-idea news, Warner Bros. and DC are doing something that absolutely no one on Planet Earth is asking for: a movie centering on the origin of the Joker. That’s right. The iconic Batman villain. Please oh please. According to a report from Deadline, Warners has tapped Todd Phillips (of The Hangover and Old School fame) to co-write the screenplay with Scott Silver. Phillips is also slated to direct, and none other than Martin Scorsese will produce it.
I don’t know why, but I’ve been listening to hell Zapp & Roger songs lately. From “More Bounce to the Ounce” and “So Ruff, So Tuff” to “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” and “I Want To Be Your Man,” the signature vocoder-assisted R&B funk has dominated my Apple Music and Tidal playlists. But the song that’s gotten the most play from me has been the uber-classic “Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing).” It’s a song that definitely reminds me of summertime. Does the song really mean anything? Who knows?
When I was younger, I was in love with Debbie Gibson. No. You don’t get it. I was in love with her. I bought Bop magazine on the regular just so I could tear out the Debbie Gibson “posters” and mini-mags. I owned Out of the Blue and Electric Youth (on cassette, tho), and “Foolish Beat” was my fucking jam for years. I was in love with Debbie Gibson. So, for this, my inaugural post of the 30-Day Music Challenge, I present a Song I Like With a Color in the Title: “Out of the Blue” by Debbie Gibson.
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".
