“We live for this," said Ethan Caldwell from Cinerama. "We start planning months in advance." Caldwell is, of course, talking about the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Last year, Cinerama's "Star Wars: Rouge One" premiere was a Stormtrooper-studded event - even Darth Vader made an appearance. And, Caldwell says they'll undoubtedly be back for the December 14, 2017 premiere.
If you've ever driven I-84 through Oregon, you may have noticed a near-perfect replica of Stonehenge perched atop a bluff on the Washington side of the Columbia River. Why is it there? Goldendale Washington's Stonehenge replica was built by Sam Hill, a famously eccentric Pacific Northwest businessman and builder.
Vampires, ghost and ghouls. Oh my! If it goes bump in the night, you'll probably find it lurking in Lake Forest Park tonight at Douglas Woods' house. "My wife and I, we've been married for 42 years," said Woods. "Every year we'd pick up a few things and add to it and it's amazing what you collect over 42 years! Scary clowns, pumpkin head men, all kinds of characters, zombies and pop up heads." Pop-up heads on stakes dance behind a gnarled wooden fence on Woods' front yard.
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".
