The plot of director Andrew Haigh’s newest melancholy tale sounds, on the face of it, cut from pure cheese. Don’t be fooled. Lean on Pete is a marvel of neo-realistic filmmaking, a trenchant and melancholy portrait of a 15-year-old boy seemingly destined to get the wrong end of the stick almost every time. A tale of growing up the hard way, and a redemption and coming-of-age movie all wrapped in and coiled around a devastatingly pure performance from Charlie Plummer.
We're all familiar with the unbreakable rules that apply to characters in horror movies, just like every good horror geek knows that a legitimately top-notch shocker must subvert those a priori assumptions. Still, rules are rules:Resist the urge to take shelter in an isolated cabin far from functional roads and lacking easy egress. Never trust authority figures, be they cops, parents, motel managers, or really just anyone who tells a character to "just cool down and let's figure things out."
Nearly a decade’s passed since Brit-pop bad boys and Oasis brothers-cum-antagonists Noel and Liam Gallagher finally put a full stop to their riotous, ridiculously successful partnership. Both have new LPs out, but judging from the wildly enthusiastic crowd at the Moody Theater on Monday, Noel the Elder is all the Oasis anyone in Austin needed and more.
@kexp What better day to decorate my new place here in Austin, TX?! I’m old enough to have seen The Clash on the Combat Rock tour in Amarillo TX, but Joe’s DIY spirit is what gets this old punk out of bed in the am. https://t.co/UviXuevAJm
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".
