Bill Gates – Likewise

By Cassandra Yany

Bill Gates has backed the recommendation app Likewise, which allows users to create, share and discover recommendations for content across different media. The app has created watchlists to enjoy Emmy-nominated shows leading up to television’s big night. 

The Emmys will look very different this year, so Likewise has made it easy for users to find and binge their favorite nominated shows. The company also polled users to ask who they think will take home the statues for the Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series categories, as well as TV Movie and Limited Series. The titles with the highest votes were:

Likewise has many other curated watchlists, including some specific to events, topics, and streaming platforms. The “Popular on Likewise” section gives users the opportunity to discover highly-rated titles that may not have been recommended to them.

Likewise makes it easy to decide what to listen to, watch, or read by providing personalized recommendations for shows, movies, books, podcasts and more. It tailors content to the user’s interests, as well as their network and current trends.

Users create a profile where they post their favorite items and recommendations. When a user makes a recommendation, the app will then suggest a title that it thinks they will like. You can also ask questions to the community in order to receive endless responses containing suggestions.

In addition to entertainment media, users can recommend places, restaurants, and other webpages. You can set your location on the app in order to view the recommendations from your area.

The app is available for both Android and iOS. Recommendations are updated daily, and it also provides community and content feed based on interest along with advanced search filters to easily and quickly find what you are looking for.

Likewise can be found on platforms such as Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV to allow users to access their content from any device and view their growing watchlists. Especially since the start of the pandemic, the app has been a great resource for consumers to easily find entertainment options.

The company is based in downtown Bellevue, WA. It is an innovative startup that was founded, imagined, and funded by Bill Gates’ private office, along with other tech visionaries. The creators of the app and its employees believe that finding recommendations for TV shows, movies, books, podcasts and restaurants should be “quick, easy, and fun.”

Here are Likewise’s Ultimate Emmy Awards Watchlists:

First New Film Release During COVID-19

AMERICA’S MOVIE THEATERS HAVE THEIR FIRST NEW FILM, UNHINGED 

OPENING JULY 1ST

Thriller starring Russell Crowe to open safely in accordance with state public health department safety guidelines

America’s movie theaters will show their first new film on July 1st, Unhinged, a thriller starring Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe.

Watch the Trailer HERE

The move comes in response to a new poll that shows more than 80% of Americans want to go out to the movies in July. The U.S. release of “Unhinged” will follow or coincide with theater openings in nations around the globe, including Australia, China, The Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan—with a number of additional countries likely to announce openings in late June or July.

Theater plans to open safely across the United States will comply with all state public health department guidelines and are expected to include such measures as socially distant seating (capacities of 25-50%), staggered showtimes to reduce crowding, and more time between each show to allow for increased cleaning. “We made this decision after extensive consultation with the National Association of Theater Owners and leading theater chains,” said Mark Gill, President and CEO of Solstice Studios, which produced and will release the film in the U.S. “Those conversations have convinced us there is a way to meet pent up demand for the theatrical experience safely.”

Unhinged is a psychological thriller starring Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe from Carl Ellsworth, the writer of Red Eye and Disturbia and Lisa Ellzey, the producer of Warrior and Kingdom of Heaven. It takes an ordinary, everyday incident to its most terrifying conclusion in telling the story of a mother who leans on her horn at the wrong time, to the wrong guy. “Road rage” doesn’t begin to describe what he’s about to do to her and everyone she knows. The film is directed by Derrick Borte (American Dreamer) and also stars Caren Pistorius, Gabriel Bateman, Jimmi Simpson and Austin P. McKenzie.

Elton John, 360 MAGAZINE

Purple Disco Machine

The Purple Disco Machine remix of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ has been unveiled today and is available now at all digital retailers. Listen to the remix HERE.

An Academy Awards shortlisted, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award nominated song, the original version of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ was written especially for the ‘Rocketman’ soundtrack by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. The original version is featured on the GRAMMY nominated Top 5 album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ (out now on Interscope Records) and played out over the movie’s closing credits. With his remix, Purple Disco Machine gracefully transforms ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ into a joyous, slinky disco groove, keeping Elton and Taron’s show-stopping vocals and the track’s Motown inspired soul at its core.

Epic musical fantasy ‘Rocketman’ was greeted by a wealth of critical and commercial success upon its release in May and shows no sign of slowing down as it heads into awards season. Having already taken more than $195 million in global box office, it has been shortlisted for two Academy Awards for Makeup and Hairstyling, and Music (Original Song). Rocketman has also been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Original Song and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). It has also garnered nominations for three Critics’ Choice Awards and its soundtrack has also been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media.

Elton says “Bernie and I wanted to celebrate the nominations for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again”.  I’m so happy that Purple Disco Machine was able to come to the party with a fabulous new remix. I’m a massive fan of his work.”

The release caps off a year which has been truly astonishing in its breadth of achievements, even by Elton John’s standards. Alongside Rocketman’s ongoing success, 2019 has seen the release of Elton’s first autobiography ‘Me’. It has already amassed global sales in excess of 700,000 copies to date, topping bestseller charts around the world in the process and garnering widespread acclaim with critics heralding it as a genre-defining rock memoir. Reaching the top 5 of the UK Charts, the GRAMMY® nominated album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ saw producer Giles Martin reimagine Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue to fit Rocketman’s narrative, working with the filmmakers on the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. September 2019 saw The Royal Mail issue a set of 12 stamps as a tribute to Elton being one of the most popular and enduring music artists of all time. Elton is one of only two individual music artists to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue. In June 2019 President Emmanuel Macron presented Elton the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest award, for his lifetime contribution to the arts and the fight against HIV/AIDS. Elton’s ongoing Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour in May 2019, the accolade coming a year after Billboard named Elton as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history.

Homecoming

Netflix released Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, which presents an intimate look at her historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming gives a peek into the process and emotional physical sacrifices it took to conceptualize and execute a performance of that magnitude that became a cultural movement. This stand-alone Netflix original is now available globally on Netflix.

As the first black woman to headline Coachella, Homecoming recognizes the African American visionaries who inspired Beyoncé, including HBCU alums Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, activist Marian Wright Edelman, and scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, in addition to cultural luminaries such as Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Audre Lorde. Beyoncé’s personal knowledge of the relevance and celebration of HBCUs started with her father, Mathew Knowles, an alumnus of Fisk University.
Shot over eight months, the film follows the global entertainer as she returns to the stage after the birth of her twins, highlighting the comprehensive preparation involved in creating her groundbreaking performance, which included four months of band rehearsals followed by four months of dance rehearsals with over 150 musicians, dancers, and other creatives, — all of whom were hand-picked by the artist herself.
In juggling dual roles as both the director of her live performance and the film that captured the process of making it, Beyoncé says, “It was one of the hardest jobs I have taken on but I knew that I had to push myself and my team to go beyond great to legendary. We knew nothing like this was ever done on a festival level before and it needed to be iconic beyond compare. The performance was an homage to an important part of African American culture. It had to be true to those who know and entertaining and enlightening to those who needed to learn. In making the film and re-telling the story, the purpose remained the same.”
Many in the cast; band, singers, dancers and steppers are former HBCU students, immersed in the HBCU marching band tradition. They joined Beyoncé’s own group of performers, some who have toured with her for years. Viewers not only get to see the intense dance rehearsals and talent of these amazing artists, but hear their personal journey from HBCU student to artist and the lifelong impact that comes with performing alongside Beyoncé in this historic concert.
“So many people who are culturally aware and intellectually sound are graduates from historically black colleges and universities, including my father,” she says in the film. “There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected.”
As a treat to her fans, the film also includes, in the end credits, her remake of “Before I Let Go” by Frankie Beverly and Maze, a 1981 R&B classic that’s commonly performed at HBCU games. The single will be available on the film’s soundtrack, Homecoming: The Live Album, available today from Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. smarturl.it/BH9102
Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé was directed and produced by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Longtime collaborator Ed Burke served as co-director. Steve Pamon and Erinn Williams are executive producers.

Beyoncé’s Homecoming

Writers: Vaughn Lowery, Tara McDonough, Stella Iman Dugall

Every once in a while pop culture encounters a rip in its continuum. The latest breach comes from one of the most effervescent entertainers of all time, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter, as the first Black female to headline one of the most prolific festivals since the iconic Woodstock. Introspective yet intimate, Homecoming is positioned to be one of the most immersive concert series in the history of music and streaming services. Beyoncé, the Director and Executive Producer of the film, creates a visually captivating story from the beginning to end. The documentary answers a plethora of questions, at which the infamous Beyhive has had about the historical moment.

With intermittent quick cuts of her family before, during and after the epic performance, Beyoncé gives herself permission to exhibit her vulnerability. After all, she planned to take the stage at Coachella in 2017 before she was pregnant with her twins. The tour was postponed and we fast forward to ‘Mrs. Carter’ having to deal with the aftermath of a complicated pregnancy, which ultimately ends in a c-section. Similar to friend, and professional tennis superstar, Serena Williams, Beyoncé bounced back harder than ever after her tough pregnancy. Throughout the piece she digs deep and pummels through some of the most difficult days she has ever encountered. She even speaks to her weighing 218 lbs and how she was only able to zip her costume up after months of hard work alongside of a dedicated clean/raw food diet – no meats, carbs, sugars. The director of photography expertly captured an extremely intimate and vulnerable side to the strong and flawless Queen Bey.

Inspiration

Having family members as graduates of some of the prominent HBCU (historically black colleges and universities), Beyoncé was able to tap into the most celebrated moments of their collegiate life. Her full show not only highlighted the history of these schools but also their social networks and fraternal organizations; transforming the stage into one of the most dynamic Black Southern spaces of cultural legacy and pride. Much of it was enunciated with their boot dancing, a traditional dance style for HBCU called J-Setting, in between transitions. These dance formations visually anchored the performance. Contortionists contributed an urban Cirque du Soleil vibe to the display which can be more accurately described as an infused gumbo of Chicago (the musical), Moulin Rouge! and the Off-Broadway play Stomp. To date, the pyramid stage has been persevered onsite at this year’s Coachella as an art installation.

A group of 200 people shared the stage with Queen Bey including Jay Z, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Solange Knowles. The expansive crew that Beyonce worked and practiced with for 8 months is featured in the documentary, as each individual had their own part in making the event a success. The dancing in her set is not technical, but emotional. The crowd, as well as audiences watching the documentary at home, are meant to feel something from just the way Beyoncé and her dancers, who she handpicked herself, move with each other. The concert experience not only exhibits the immense talent of HBCU musicians but works towards using this heightened exposure to aid these institutions that have been struggling with little resources and grants since their establishment.

After the the release of Homecoming, Netflix will more than likely notice a spike in downloads/subscriptions; Beyonce will notice an increase in her fan base and HBCU enrollment rates will most likely skyrocket. Overall, most audience members will be thrashed into a world of black honor, history and preservation. While the Pew Report notes that there is a varying “black/white digital divide” concerning internet usage, (87% whites, 80% blacks), there is little divide when it comes to mobile platforms. The growth of black presence in media, such as on social media, in streaming services and more, will only continue due to the imminent success of Beyoncé’s partnership with Netflix. Her myriad of success as a dominant Black woman breaks down barriers in the same way Jordan Peele has done for young Black filmmakers across the diaspora. This will become one of the most treasured pieces of mass media and should offer encouragement to both women and minorities to bust through the glass ceiling on all fronts especially digitization and technology.
