Do you remember when you first encountered James Corden? For millions of us, myself included, it was as Smithy, the moronic but fairly affable Essex fat guy who knocked back pints at a dingy club in Cardiff. He was a reflection of the larger-than-life characters you knew from school or uni or just from being out and about in town. He was one of the true stars Gavin and Stacey, and from this little perch on BBC3, James Corden built his career.
Being from Surrey is a privilege that very few are blessed with. You might not clock it until you leave the bubble, but our humble county made you the person you are today. From countless birthday parties at Guildford Spectrum, to school trips to Box Hill, there’s just some things only Surreyites will get. You know there’s normal people that live here too right? Is that Poppy or Sarah’s dads’ Range Rover outside school? Can I go to Izzy’s pool party or will I be in Cornwall that weekend?
They threaten to charge more if you have ugly matesSeedy promoters are telling punters not to bring their fat mates to some of London’s most exclusive clubs. Promoters who work with big name clubs like Libertine, Cirque Le Soir, DSTRKT and Cafe de Paris, also assess girls by their pictures to judge whether they’re fit enough to come in for free.
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".
