In 2009, shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Trevor Wayne was given a quirky, amusing, Hollywood-esque challenge that could only happen in the entertainment capital of the world. He was invited to create art for an erotic-themed show called “Golden Girls Gone Wild.” Yep, those sassy, funny seniors whose one-liners delight TV viewers daily in syndication.
A 10-year high school class reunion sets in motion a decades-long love affair between two very different men in Terry Ray’s play, “Electricity.” And you can witness their funny, dramatic and touching encounters in an entertainingly intimate way. The stage is an actual hotel room at Palm Springs’ INNdulge where the couple periodically reunites, with the audience sitting just a few feet from the bed. The play has had a Palm Springs connection since its origin.
Jewel Thais-Williams is much too present and unassuming to be called a pioneer, but that’s exactly what she is. In the early 1970s she opened Jewel’s Catch One, one of the first and largest discos catering to LGBTQ people of color. Located on Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles, it became a cultural hot spot that also drew Madonna, Janet Jackson, Sylvester and other celebrities. But the club owner’s commitment to community went beyond entertainment.
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".
