There are so many bad puns to be made about pulling swords from stones, but I’m mature and a lady so I’m not going to make them. That said, if you heard a gasping inhalation from the internet yesterday, I guarantee you it was coming from anyone and everyone attracted to the male sex when Entertainment Weekly released the very first pictures of Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam in his next role as the once and future king, Arthur Pendragon.
If you didn’t grow up in the 80s, surrounded by Kenner’s Star Wars toys, you may not understand the epic reaction this adorable video of an AT-AT Walker transformed into a dog brings out in your friends. The animated short was created four years ago by Canadian filmmaker Patrick Boivin. His work is very popular on YouTube with over 200 million views, and he’s recently been working with some very cool clients including Disney Pixar.
Someone must’ve raided Smaug’s hoard (or sold their soul) because a new JRR Tolkien story is set to hit bookstore shelves in October. Because this always ends well, I’m going to withhold my opinion on the post-humous publication of writer’s work and just embrace my bubbling excitement that we will get to see a story that supposedly lead Tolkien to Middle Earth so many years ago. Here’s what we know about The Story of Kullervo so far.
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".
