For those who regard Shepard Fairey as merely that guy behind Obey and the Obama “HOPE” poster, Hulu’s just dropped Obey Giant, a feature-length documentary of a rebuttal. Filling in the gaps between the artist’s most renowned works with footage from his skater days, run-ins with police, and street fight of a lawsuit with the Associated Press, the film explores not just the art, but the ever-evolving motivations of the man behind it.
Vice President Mike Pence touches a piece of equipment labeled "Do Not Touch" after being dared to do so by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio during a tour of Kennedy Space Center. Picture by REUTERS/Mike Brown. Kids are easily manipulated. They'll do just about anything you ask if you frame the request as a dare that challenges their fragile, budding senses of self worth. Sometimes, these challenges get a bit out-of-hand, other times, they can have truly tragic outcomes.
It gets lonely in the no man's land between jock and geek. Though active my entire life, watching sports bores me to tears, and while my city gets swept up in World Series fever, I'm primarily concerned with which road to take to best avoid the traffic it spawns. And as I don't have a nostalgic bone in my body, watching stuff like the now-annual Star Wars offering feels more like a perfunctory exercise to keep up with pop culture than a joyous explosion of fandom.
Rather than get into another heated argument with your Trump-voting family members today, try to focus on the spirit of the holiday and, instead, break bread with them in good faith before exiling and/or murdering them.
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".
