“Mindhunter” arrived, in October, on Netflix, under a sleekly portentous title adapted from its source material: “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.” The book, from 1995, is the true-crime memoir of John E. Douglas, who was writing as a former F.B.I. agent on his way to installation as Hollywood’s idea of the glamorous G-man, behavioral-sciences edition. Douglas’s approach to criminal psychology continues to determine the views of the government and the media.
Among the press materials for the new Showtime comedy “ SMILF ” is a note from the showrunner and star, Frankie Shaw, intending to justify the title of the series—to defend against offended inquiries and preëmpt baffled commentary. The show concerns the single mother of a young toddler; the title’s root word is a familiar vulgar acronym denoting a mother’s erotic appeal. The note informs us that Shaw aims to beat the male gaze in a staring contest.
“Stranger Things 2” is indeed the correct title of the new installment of the series created by Matt and Ross Duffer for the thorough enjoyment of Netflix subscribers who who swoon to pop Americana of a nineteen-eighties vintage. As with last year’s introductory season , a Spielbergian sense of wonder and a John Hughes knack for underage anthropology invigorate the show’s approach to scary science-fiction. The memory of “Poltergeist” tingles in its every crackle of static.
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".
