If you were keen enough to check out all three excellent seasons of David Milch’s Deadwood at HBO, then you already know that the following opinion is wholly justified. The original series, which spanned 36 episodes, ended on a high note and featured some of television’s most memorable characters. The acting, along with the show’s true-to-life stories, made for highly entertaining television, even for viewers who don’t necessarily like Western dramas. First, let’s talk about Al Swearengen.
Sixteen years after the original stoner comedy Super Troopers aired, its sequel is finally finished and pending theatrical release. Kevin Heffernan, who played Rod Farva in the film, took to the Broken Lizard website on Wednesday to post the news that the sequel is in post-production and pending a release date. “When we have the release date you will be the first to know,” says Heffernan. “That’s when trailers, posters and all the promo materials will launch.
Chef Gordon Ramsay has not only built himself an empire on the back of his cooking prowess, but has become one of television’s most recognizable personalities. His sometimes fierce criticism and comical insults have granted him a place in the spotlight, and rightfully so. He’s downright hilarious. You may have already been watching Ramsay as one of MasterChef’s three co-hosts or as the sole host of Hell’s Kitchen on FOX, but Ramsay has also embarked on a new endeavor.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
