My favorite Thanksgiving movie, by far, is “The Doors” (1991), directed by conspiracy-coddling Oliver Stone. In the film’s greatest scene, lead singer Jim Morrison (Val Kilmer), dressed in leather pants, of course, is having friends over for Thanksgiving. His girlfriend, Pamela (a woefully miscast Meg Ryan), is mad at him because his hand-written poetry and lyrics are in disarray. More people keep showing up, including Morrison’s secret girlfriend. Pamela confronts the other woman.
Hey, where did everybody go? From my prime perch on the porch of the Brick Haus Italian Bistro and Corner Pub on Friday afternoon, I had a commanding view of the sparse crowds gathered along College Avenue in time for the start of the Florida State Homecoming 2017 parade. I could have rolled a bowling ball from the Brick Haus, on the corner MLK Boulevard, all the way down College Avenue’s Fraternity Row to Potbelly’s, on the corner of Macomb Street, without fear of injuring anyone’s toes.
If you missed the Florida State Opera’s bustling, circus-inspired production of Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide” earlier this month, get ready to skim the greatest hits version of the comic opera. The Tallahassee Winds band will perform Bernstein’s highly condensed “Candide Suite” as part of the concert program kicking off the community band’s 21st season on Tuesday night in Opperman Music Hall.
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".
