While audiences were first introduced to the story of the young woman who falls for a beast in Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s story Le belle et la bête, published in 1740, it is Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s 1756 abridged version that is most commonly known. So familiar is it that nearly half a century later, Belle and her cursed beau continue to delight audiences, most notably in this spring’s live-action film adaptation from Disney.
Six months ago, Brooklyn-based musicians Le Chev and TC Milan started tinkering with different sounds until they came upon a groove too good to dismiss. “We had made some other types of music together before, but right after we made ‘Get Me Off’… we thought, ‘Oh shit, this is a good one; we need to go after this,’” said Crush Club’s Le Chev in a recent phone interview with The Santa Barbara Independent.
John Stephens may have been reluctant to change his surname to Legend — a moniker bestowed on him in the early 2000s by poet J. Ivy — but it was a prescient alteration. Today, John Legend, as he is known professionally, is a 10-time Grammy winner; his most recent record, Darkness and Light (2016), debuted at 14 on the Billboard 200; and his soulful music has garnered him devotees worldwide.
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".
