Late yesterday The Hollywood Reporter reported Linda Hamilton would reprise her role as Sarah Connor for James Cameron’s next Terminator film. To say I’m shook would be an understatement. Cameron, who has been working on reclaiming the rights to the franchise he created, made the announcement at a private event THR attended.
I’m flying the coop soon so here’s your new open thread to talk about me while I’m gone. I mean, talk about what’s going on in the world while I’m gone. Obviously. Speaking of which…The new Hellboy, Stranger Things’ David Harbour, has been unleashed…Speaking of which, the fine folks I work for at Skelton Crew have two limited edition Hellboy/B.P.R.D. pins up for grabs right now. They are super cool. I just found this really funny for some reason. This has been an incredible find.
Zack Snyder's Justice League trailer got a lot of fans excited for its lighter tone compared to Batman v Superman. The folks at Weird Trailers decided to kick it up a notch and I honestly have no idea what my brain just witnessed, but it's hysterical. I admit, this is my first look at Aldo Jones' “Weird Trailers” so I was certainly taken by surprise when Bruce Wayne showed up as a Troll doll. It was all gold from then on. Pay close attention or you might miss something. There are cameos everywhere.
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".
