“And if anybody told my parents, ‘I love your daughter,’ that’s it, my dad was like, ‘Come to the house. Let’s talk about my daughter.’ Like that kind of support. But at the same time, I’d be embarrassed. My mom in a wheelchair, that embarrassed me. And so, I so regret that because I don’t care whatever condition my mom was in and I don’t care if the biggest fucking rock star in the world was in the audience, I’d point her out in a second.
“Pain is pain and if my version of what I went through and what I write about can help somebody that might be currently going through some situations, then I don’t want to be too tight-lipped about anything just because I feel like, you know, our stories make us who we are and it’s really important to share them with people,” a congenial Leon said over the phone in early October from her home in Glendale, Calif., a Los Angeles suburb wedged between Pasadena and Griffith Observatory.
Each Jenny picked a song where she would sing lead, pending the other two’s approval. Moody, whose lead vocals also shine on “Light of a Clear Blue Morning,” chose Emmylou Harris’ “Boulder to Birmingham”; Mehta, with her marvelous mezzo, picked Patty Griffin’s “Not Alone”; and Masse, also known for her jazz collaborations with Dick Hyman and Roswell Rudd, selected “Keep Me in Your Heart” by Warren Zevon, another late great whose song was among the last he recorded before his 2003 death at age 56.
@thewailinjennys made a lovely return to Colorado this weekend. If you missed Sunday's beautiful sold-out show @BoulderTheater, there's another chance tonight, then elsewhere in U.S. in December. Get a sneak peek of tour, terrific new album Fifteen: https://t.co/LsEpKWc5XE
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".
