In his one-man show John Lithgow: Stories by Heart, the charming stage legend recounts tales of his youth but at the heart of the production are the dramatic performances of two short stories: a sour, dark yarn from Ring Lardner and a farcical romp from PG Wodehouse. These were bedtime stories that Lithgow’s father (also an actor) once told him.
Diahann Carroll, as an alien hologram, purrs this line in the bizarro 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special where she’s an erotic fantasy sprung to life by a Wookiee who imagines her for his pleasure. In the experimental dance piece Discotropic at the COIL festival, a dancer crawling across a stage towards the audience taunts us with the same speech given by Carroll but recontextualizing it as part of a larger work looking at science fiction, disco, and Afrofuturism.
These days, revolutions and upheavals are broadcasted, hashtagged, live-tweeted. In Counting Sheep, the resistance is all these things — and, also, immersive. Drawing on live video, documentary footage, and the audience’s participation in the action, the show re-creates the scene of the Ukrainian protests in Kiev’s Independence Square from 2014, putting the spectators right at the front lines of the barricades.
Maybe it’s bc I’m on a plane only half-paying attention but I went a little faceblind to the cheekbones.
There was Harry Styles, Kenny B, Mufflemouth “longest tank of gas” Hardy, Cillian “the best cheekbones” Murphy, 1blond Scottish guy, & 72 brunettes w/cheekbones. #dunkirk
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".
