Being an artist requires fierce discipline, pure passion and profound dedication. The desire to express ourselves through the Arts has deep roots that need to be acknowledged and nurtured. The talent must be always respected. At any cost. Fear is a faithful companion of our journey through self-expression.
Hamilton original Broadway cast member Daveed Diggs hasn’t let his association with the megahit musical stop him from pursuing other opportunities. And that’s good news for him — one of his most recent roles is in the movie Wonder, which has become a surprise box office hit. Diggs spoke to the Chicago Tribune about his success as an actor — and how it shouldn’t discourage performers when they don’t hit major success in their first decade of trying.
Richard Short stars in the new film, Crazy Famous, about a group of patients who escape a mental institution in hopes of finding Osama Bin Ladin, who Smith (Short) insists is still alive, in an attempt to become famous. Short, who had a “lot of fun” playing the ‘is he/isn’t he’ crazy role, said he modeled the character after Roger Moore’s James Bond. “I just did nothing but watch ’70s and ’80s Roger Moore Bonds every night after work. Which was great, just magnificent,” he said.
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".
