Irish playwright Enda Walsh begins St. Ann’s new season with Ballyturk, a play in which two characters, One and Two, seem perfectly content living in their small Irish village of Ballyturk until Three shows up and pops their symbiotic bubble. As The Guardian put it, “It is as if Beckett’s Godot had unexpectedly materialised.” It’s a very physical, humorous, and David Lynch-cryptic kind of play, by one of the best, most prolific living playwrights. Sounds like a perfect Tuesday night.
If there is ever a time when even skeptics consider astrology a bonafide way of thinking about the year ahead, it’s in January. The slate is clean, it’s the closest, cheapest thing to a crystal ball, and hell, it’s fun having someone tell you what to expect in your relationship and at work. Add the uncertainty of living with a president who keeps talking about his big nuclear buttons, and you have a prime moment for believing in the stars.
It is hard to leave the apartment on a Sunday in January, but what if you left your house only to curl up in someone else’s? That is exactly what Planetarium sounds like. Held inside the new indoor space at Nowadays, these listening sessions are designed for music lovers who enjoy tuning in to new sounds and tuning out the rest of the world.
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".
