The Life of an Aige Old Soul has moved!

Hello, All!

The Life of an Aige Old Soul has moved!

Why, you may ask?

I want to start fresh—completely fresh! I’ve been interning at the Virginia Film Office for the last four months and the work involved with this internship has thrown my blogging a little off track. I want to start over, and I also want this “new” blog to really reflect where I am in my life right now. I love posting on The Life of an Aige Old Soul—I’ve enjoyed coming up with content for the segments—Black Music Month, Aige Old Radio, etc.—but it’s always been all over the place because the last few years of my life have been nothing more than phases of transitions—in college, out of college for the holidays, out of college indefinitely/graduating, looking for a job, finding a job, having to quit that job, depressed because I couldn’t find a job, so on and so forth.

Now, as the VFO internship draws to a close, I can now say that for the most part, I am “stable”—I am now pursuing my career goals without interference. I believe that this stability will allow me the freedom to blog how I want. Aige Old Radio (monthly) and Mr. Sali's Reviews (bi-weekly) will be the only "scheduled" segments. Otherwise, I will post when I can—whenever I come across a great historical find, I will share it with you. If I listen to a great album, I will share it without you. Will it be a review? Maybe, maybe not—but you will absolutely know about it. That’s the kind of blog I’ve always wanted The Life of an Aige Old Soul to be. 

I hope to see you guys on the new Life of an Aige Old Soul.
Best Regards,
Adrienne (aka “Aige”)

Mr. Sali's Reviews (#76)

Check out this week's featured reviews from Amari's blog, Wherever I Look:

It's still very hard to believe that Robin Williams is gone. Posthumous releases of his films makes the thought even harder to accept.

Last month, Amari reviewed Boulevard, a film about a man who randomly takes a ride down an unfamiliar street, leading to a subsequent break in his monotonous life--a break that also allows him to explore who he really is. Click here to read Amari's review.

Also, check out Amari's review of Grandma, a comedy featuring an all-star cast, including Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden, Julia Greer, Laverne Cox, Sam Elliott, the late Elizabeth Peña, and many others. |Review|

Woman Crush Wednesday (Retro Style) - #9

Oh, how I love this week's woman crush. She's an unsung beauty and absolutely an unsung talent. She's one of my favorite musicians, in fact. Great Hazel Scott!

Can we talk about the perfection that was Ms. Scott's lips?

Woman Crush Wednesday (Retro Style) - #8

This week's woman crush is the Queen of Glam, the Head Diva--she is The Boss.

 This post requires numerous photos and few words.

Woman Crush Wednesday (Retro Style) - #7

This week's "woman crush" is my favorite Capricorn (beside myself).

 Mother Eartha!!!

 The epitome of a "phenomenal woman"--beautiful, courageous, a survivor. She had it all--and I absolutely miss her earthly presence.
