There are two universal truths the House of Mouse is evidently betting on when it comes to television shows: people love ’90s nostalgia, and people love hockey. One of those is maybe less apt than the other, but the power of stuff that came out over 20 years ago is strong enough to make Disney and ABC entertain the idea of bringing their family sports comedy The Mighty Ducks to the small screen, for streaming services, according to THR.
In a world where cinematic universes exist, we now feel the need to retain strict, unwavering continuity — to the point where a whole movie explaining why Ben Affleck isn’t Batman might be necessary. This is a new thing. For decades, for example, the actor playing the world’s greatest super spy changed over and over and it was only ever referenced once (and that was a joke). Fan canon now says there are multiple James Bonds, each inheriting the name and number.
Certainly, there’s a lot to dislike about the internet these days, even amid being able to look up how old Jeff Probst is (56) or what the national bird of India is (peacock?!?!?! ), but sometimes it produces genius the likes of which only written about in stories. We found out about this via Birth.Movies.Death, and it’s just so weird and perfect. The Twitter account Our Worldcomic realized H.P.
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".
