Is the momentum of the #MeToo movement slowing down? It’s been a full month since that fun week in January when babe.net broke the Aziz Ansari story and James Franco’s transgressions led him from Golden Globe winner to Academy Award snub. Ansari’s case, in particular, emphasizes how #MeToo is not about scale (how extreme a case is, how many people are affected), it’s about consent. So, #TimesUp for the so-called shades of gray in sexual encounters (sorry, Christian Grey).
Foxtrot Samuel Maoz Spiro Films 02 Sep 2017 (US) Other A movie on a lot of Oscar-snub lists this year is A Ghost Story, director David Lowery's artsy film about how different habitants of the same home dealt with the grief that haunted them. The film played heavily on metaphor: Casey Affleck, whose character dies in a car crash early on, saunters around the house with a sheet over his head.
Please Stand By Ben Lewin Magnolia Pictures 25 Jan 2018 (US) Other For a film whose title directly quotes everyone's favorite vulcan, Spock, and is about a 20-something girl who hopes to win big in a Star Trek-fanfiction contest, Please Stand By's exclusively arthouse run probably means it will draw crowds more interested in the autism hook than the Trekkie love.
@bamusbatisbarns i was going thru a blue spell recently and thought about your old piece on depression and music. had a period where i couldnt get into anything bc too sad. but then i found kesha and lana del rey. so apparently i become ramon and love girl popstars when down haha
@andybanta You're probably right :) I think a lot of millennials are skipping out on buying a home and having kids, though, for financial reasons like starting careers late due to the recession and large student loans. But it's just more acceptable to not have kids now too. AND I LOVE DOGS.
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".
