'Autumn is a time for football, yes, and holidays, sure, but most importantly it's a time for hayrides and apple picking,' writes John Moe. 'It makes you wonder how certain famous bands would do in those circumstances.' John has ranked 20 bands on that criteria; see how your favorites stack up.
'The more I think about it, the more I realize there are plenty of singers out there doing very well who can't really especially sing all that great,' John Moe writes. '[But] I am not here to criticize singers who can't sing. I am here to ADORE singers who can't sing.'
'What if common house pets could start bands?' John Moe writes. 'What would those bands sound like? I'm glad you asked, because I have a college degree and have written several books unrelated to this topic and am an expert on this topic.' Read what John has determined for these 'pet sounds,' if you will.
John Moe gazes into the facade of Mount Rushmore and decides to look into areas of music where he could most easily find a dominant foursome to determine if, wherever there is a group of four, there is a notably less stellar member of the group: the Teddy.
'There are three levels to discovering music,' John Moe writes, 'the kind of music that makes you stop what you're doing and give a focused listen.' John describes and gives examples of what those three levels are. See what you think, and share some of your own discoveries.
I don't like the Utah Jazz of the NBA. It's for the same reason I don't like the Orlando Magic: lack of definite article, lack of plural noun. When a player joins the Pistons, he can say, "I'm a Piston" but when he joins the Jazz, then what? "I'm a Jazz ...

Sometimes a video can be amusing, then funny, then existentially upsetting. Such was the case when I came across this one of Bon Scott, the late singer of AC/DC, singing the '60s bubblegum pop classic, "Build Me Up Buttercup." Here: Look at him! Doing the second vocal with a group called The Valentines!
Excerpts From Dagwood Bumstead's Intervention. Blondie, wife: I do love you. I can't help that. But your relationship with food is killing you. It's killing us. At first it seemed like an eccentricity. Charming, almost. Almost. But the sandwiches, those obscene, grotesque sandwiches you consume ... Why do you need them so desperately?
I'm always happy when I meet someone named Dave because I know I'll like them. I've liked several Davids I've met but I've been very fond of every Dave I've gotten to know. There's something about shedding the formality of the second syllable that cheers the name up.
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
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".
