Let’s start with a mental health check: You guys hanging in there? Need a hug? We all just saw Deacon engaging in pillow talk with Jessie and I want to make sure everyone is okay. Deep, cleansing breaths, people. As a chapeaued dog in a burning room once said, “This is FINE.”Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Nashville was in a bind with Deacon.
Like everyone else who has ever seen a Marvel film, I’ve been trained to sit through the credits for tidbits of extra content and hints about upcoming films. But in the case of Black Panther, I wish I hadn’t. Not just because the post-credits scenes were banal—although they were. But because they broke the spell that Black Panther had cast over me—and reminded me that, soon enough, this gloriously original film (and character) will get subsumed by the Marvel Industrial Complex.
Nice rebound for Nashville this week. Don’t get me wrong, the show didn’t actually make any “sense” or resemble the “world as we know it,” but at least it was hella fun, which is a lot more than I can say for last week’s dud. I kind of want to begin with the madness of new Juliette, but I should probably leave that for last, huh? Instead, let’s start with a boy named Twig.
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".
