Lushly illustrated scenes, fantastical steampunk gizmos, and more soot that you can wag a broom at. While Pixar has pioneered the art of CGI films, fans of traditional hand-drawn animation have to look outside Hollywood. Countries like Japan and France—which both have grand comic book traditions—still create gorgeously hand-drawn films, with the most popular imports being the breathtaking fantasies of Hayao Miyazaki like Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.
Readers have long known Drew Magary for his journalism and acerbic yet hilarious rants at GQ, Deadspin, and elsewhere. But Magary wears several hats. In addition to his non-fiction writing — and the cooking skills that made him a winner on the reality cooking show Chopped — Magary writes smart, hilarious, and kind of crazy fiction. Magary’s first novel, 2011’s The Postmortal, was a darkly funny dystopian vision of a future where the cure for aging had been found.
Two of Taika Waititi's best movies are streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime. It’s appropriate that critics refer to the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” more often than individual films, because most Marvel movies blur together into a repetitive mixture of inoffensive humor, pleasant in-jokes, and assembly-line visual style. That’s why the latest Thor movie, with it’s cosmic kaleidoscope look and actually-makes-you-laugh script, was such a nice surprise.
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".
