So, remember a few months ago we found a cat in our parking lot? Joel Katz did a video about it, and I named her Smokey Blasko...well, I tried to make her a part of my cat family, but Rock Star Cat Cornell and Dolly Dagger wouldn't have it, so Smokey wound up living at Route 516 Animal Hospital for a bit. During this time, a new account executive started working here at Magic. Her name is Frania, and she found out I was resident "cat lady" in the building, and we struck up a friendship.
Back in 1985, I was left at a U2 show...yup...dumped. Even had to sell the shirt I bought to get some money to get home! The show was at MSG--it was "The Unforgettable Fire" tour. The guy I was dating was not only dating me, but someone else (at the same time). He drove me to the show, watched me buy the shirt, sat through the opening act with me, and said he was going to get a drink. He never came back to the seats (he went and sat with his other girlfriend, and was watching me look around!)
June 21, 2017 Debbie's "On The Verge" with Mina Alali So, how cool is it that I got to interview Mina, and we have RADIO in common?! She did a radio show when she was 15 in her hometown of Davis, California! Flash forward to now, when she's 19 years old, and has a blossoming music career! Check out her song "Something About Her" and connect and become a fan!
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".
