Dan Slott, whose work has been synonymous with Spider-Man for the past decade, has announced that he will be leaving Marvel’s flagship title The Amazing Spider-Man. In an interview with Vulture, he said that his final issue will be The Amazing Spider-Man #801, likely released in July 2018. “This was a decision that was made way long ago,” Slott told Vulture.
DC Comics has a big milestone coming up. In fact, it’s so big that it’s kind of a milestone for the entire American comics industry — maybe even the entire American entertainment industry, at this point. The one thousandth issue of Action Comics, the first issue of which introduced the world to Superman, the first superhero, and kicked off the entire genre, will hit shelves on April 18.
It’s not news anymore that there’s a vocal minority of folks who think that Star Wars: The Last Jedi took some liberties with Star Wars canon — and some others who have even more ridiculous problems with the blockbuster. Director Rian Johnson continued a streak of getting a little cheeky on Twitter today, with a series of tweets tacitly defending a certain thing that happens in the climax of The Last Jedi. [Warning: This post will contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.]
P.S. There's a setting in Chrome that will require you to HOLD command+Q instead of tapping it to close Chrome, so you don't accidentally shut the whole ding dang client when you just wanted to command+W a tab closed
Apropos of nothing PSA on my two most used keyboard shortcuts:
command+L -> selects everything in the URL bar
command+shift+T -> opens the last tab you closed (or tabs, if you closed multiple at one time). You can hit it repeatedly.
@loudmouthjulia Right now I'm reading LeGuin's Changing Planes, a fictional travelogue. Except it might be more accurate to say that I've stopped reading it because I'm getting close to the end and I don't want it to be overrrrr
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".
