Lydia Night, lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the L.A. garage-pop band the Regrettes, has discovered that their song “A Living Human Girl” has touched fans in a very profound way. “We’ve gotten everything from someone saying that it helped them with their depression or their eating disorder to it just gives them confidence,” Night says. “They start their day with that song. It all revolves around the self-love aspect.”It would be hard not to feel good about yourself after listening to the song.
When Annie Wolff-Pautsch launched her Santa Cruz County brewery tour company Brew Cruz in 2014, its early success left her with an unanticipated problem. Wolff-Pautsch had originally thought she would fill her refurbished 15-seat 1989 Thomas International school bus, aka “Betty Jane,” with public tours of small mixed groups, but private tours of large celebratory groups quickly filled her schedule.
It was love at first snap as my teeth broke through the taut casing of my first Cheesy Bavarian sausage from Corralitos Market & Sausage Co. several years ago. The exact “where” and “when” of this inaugural experience has faded from my memory, muddled with the many, many Cheesy Bavarians that came after it, but I’ll never forget my first taste of mildly spiced sausage mixed with creamy cheddar cheese—a deceptively simple combo that nonetheless made quite an impression.
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".
