I'm a writer (screenwriter), web producer and a fan of fandom. Helped start Variety.com and the now defunct bags and boards blog covering comics and comics-related items (which the great Tom McLean now uses as his own -- and it's great). Moved on to L.A. Times and Hero Complex, and am doing the s...
L.A., meet Frank Castle: Nathan Edmondson on his West Coast Punisher
Cullen, of course, voices many other characters. Notably, he is the voice of Eeyore in many Winnie the Pooh projects. But Optimus Prime will always be his most loved character. With another new animated iteration of the more-than-meets-the-eye robots and post-production happening on the new live-action “Bumblebee,” the 76-year-old Cullen took a look back at his decades-old origins with the franchise and how he and the business have changed — for better and for worse.
Instead of hanging out in the warm confines of Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Sturgill Simpson decided to busk and answers question outside of this year's CMA Awards, and he did it all live on FacebookOften talked over by a man in the background with a microphone, Simpson spoke favorably of his pals, or wannabe pals, including Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban ("We were homies, for like 5 minutes").
Since the film genre’s inception — generally thought to be the 1896 French short silent film "Le Manoir du Diable" (The House of the Devil) by French director Georges Méliès — audiences have been captivated and repelled. Whether it's a physical menace — from Frankenstein to Freddy Krueger — a psychological thriller like "The Haunting" or the tension of a found-footage movie like "The Blair Witch Project," horror continues to evolve.
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".
