Beyond Stranger Things—Netflix’s new roundtable-style after-show for the streaming network’s beloved 80’s horror throwback—should have been a blast. Minus a single embarrassingly bad diversion to a high school senior’s remake of The Warriors, Stranger Things Season 2 (or Stranger Things 2, if we absolutely have to do that) was a delightful watch.
If every interview Holden Ford conducts is a microcosm of—to borrow a phrase from Ed Kemper—the “entire fucked-upness” of his life, then Mindhunter saved its masterstroke for last. Holden and Bill’s systematic breakdown of child-rapist and murderer Gene Devier (Adam Zastrow) is a harrowing sight to behold, no doubt.
It’s fair to say that Bill Tench already laid out Mindhunter‘s thesis statement back in Episode 2 when he asked, “how do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?” But episode nine took that idea to a more…let’s say personal level, daring to ask: How do we relate to serial killers if we can’t use a phrase like “eight ripe cunts”?
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".
