The Alternative Music Film Society continues its great series of film screenings this week with "Peter Gabriel: The Making of So," commemorating nearly 33 years since Gabriel began working on the album that shifted him from a cult star to a household name. "So" contains hit tracks "Sledgehammer," "Big Time," and "In Your Eyes," which will forever be associated with the over-referenced appeal of lifting a boom box up in the air and at a girl.
The Rochester Museum & Science Center this Saturday continues its popular "RMSC After Dark" series of 21+ social gatherings, with "Night of Champions." In anticipation of the upcoming XXIII Winter Olympic Games in South Korea, the event's activities include meeting with local Olympians, Olympic trivia, Dutch shuffleboard, and more. A cash bar and snacks will also be available. Tickets to the event come with admission to the museum, including its new exhibition "Genome: Unlocking Life's Code."
Shakespeare may be well known for his tales about forbidden love, but he wasn't the only playwright to tackle the subject. Grey Noise Theatre Company has adapted August Strindberg's relationship drama "Maid Julie" into a chilling tale about reconciling romance against class differences. Set in the heat of one summer in the thirteenth century, the play follows Julia, the free-spirited daughter of the lord of the manor, as she finds love during a rowdy party.
Observation: Fergie stood in front of a mic & sang a very rocky version of the national anthem. It was not executed well. However, the bulk of the vehement criticism against her is about her “sexiness,” “just missing the stripping pole,” “slutiness.” What are we really mad about?
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".
