Turk Pipkin is not one for small projects – the actor-writer-philanthropist has taken on interviewing Nobel laureates for documentaries, founding a nonprofit to promote literacy in Africa, planting 2 million trees in Bastrop, trying to beat Willie Nelson at golf – so when he says his latest endeavor is "either my craziest or most ambitious project ever," you have to wonder how big it is. Turns out it's six books big.
Wondering where Aquaman will be when the Justice League starts saving the world on Nov. 17? Why, right here in our landlocked Capital City, with a Superman, two Batmen, a Robin, a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger, Yondu, Lt. Uhura, and Napoleon Dynamite. Don't be confused, True Believer, it's just Wizard World, the traveling comic con that brings its shrewdly packaged mix of comics creators, film and TV stars, panels, workshops, and cosplay to the Austin Convention Center every fall.
The word was spoken by one of the dancers in a cluster of about a dozen facing the audience. Then it was repeated by another in the group, then by another. One by one, in quick succession, each dancer said the word, emphatically, insistently, with purpose, until everyone had said it. Then, looking right out at us, they all spoke it again as one: "Now!" There was no question in this year's Fall for Dance what time was being addressed by Dance Repertory Theatre.
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".
