Ever since David Letterman dropped watermelons off rooftops, and Gallagher built an entire comedic persona on hitting things with mallets, society at large has understood the inherent appeal of making stuff go smashy-smashy. Meanwhile, Road Runner cartoons attest to a certain fascination with riding atop dangerous rockets and into great self-induced peril.
She-Ra, star of two seasons of half-hour cartoons in the '80s and a spin-off movie that grossed $6.5 million on a budget of $2 million (it was basically just a re-edit of five TV episodes), is coming back to TV in a new Netflix animated series, and unlike her twin brother He-Man, who got two reboots, this is the first time a makeover has been attempted on the Princess of Power.
Oh hai Saturday Night Live! If you were “eggspecting, haha” James Franco to bring Tommy Wiseau to SNL as a guest, you were unfortunately disappointed. But like the mysterious director put everything he had into The Room, Franco practically opened his veins for a holiday-wrapping bit that sprayed the joy everywhere. Granted, this is maybe the most stupidly obvious gag you could possibly do in time for the holidays, and the way the severed foot bit is completely botched is beyond hilarious.
@Steven_Kelliher I didn't necessarily have a problem with it - just thought, "Hey, this looks like a fighting game." Specifically the kinds of fighting games where something big is happening to the scenery in the background, but the one-on-one fight is the thing.
Just watched TRAINSPOTTING 2 and now I'm really bummed Sony didn't push it for awards. Maybe best cinematography of the year. Best Danny Boyle in years. Great look at how energy of youth turns into bitter nostalgia.
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".
