    I have been a Great Admirer of Bobby Womack since the early 70’S. I loved all of his music. I never missed seeing him perform when he was in St.Louis. He will be missed.

    Other people can comfort and console us in our grief, They can be part of the healing but only after all the waves of mourning have washed through our lives, Comfort can come only after we can accept death as a reality…and only as Jesus brings us to the realization that physical death is not the end. May God Cont. To Bless The Family

    I have listened to Bobby’s music since childhood and was always amazed at his ability to sing and play musicial instrumentation the way he did as Bobby was truly gifted. I understood much better as I matured both naturally and musically why Sam Cooke contracted him at such a young age: Bobby was truly gifted as an Artist and Performer. May he rest in Peace as I know that he was a believer in Christ (listen to his rendition of ‘Yes, Jesus Loves Me’ on his “Check It Out” album from the early seventies). My prayers are with his family and all those left behind.

    Bobby Womack, I loved all of his music – I first know of his music when Sam Cooke’s got killed. I was very young living in L A near the hotel where Sam was killed. I always kept up with the story when Bobby married Sam wife Barbara. Bobby music helped me throw trouble times then and now, I have all of his music he put out and I will always play his music. I hope a movie about Bobby life will come later.

    When I first got to LA, Bobby was like a big brother to me, we worked out in gym at the then (Beverly Hills Health Club), played basketball and ran long distance together. I was blessed to be at his home at times when he would all of a sudden break out his guitar and play and sing a new song. I was so glad to have had the chance to pay my respects at his wonderful home going. He was a friend and I loved him very much. Ernest Harden Jr.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
