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”)

  1. Hi A, Happy New Year and best wishes to you. Wanted to write to ask you if you somehow still have the links (or the video files themselves, if you've saved them onto your computer) to Dorothy Dandridge's "Malaga" and the "Cain's Hundred" TV episodes, both of which have been taken off YouTube (which pisses me off). (It's infuriating to me how a) DVD sets of her work have not been released up to now and b) how hard her work is to even find even on the internet). IE, Media companies of today (and the rich fat greedy white businessmen running them) would rather publish the demeaning and artisticly-empty TRASH of today (films and music included) than show sincere respect to sincere artists such as DD.)

    I also wanted to thank you briefly for your previous blog re: people of colour. I am a Chinese guy (around your age actually) myself raised in the West...
    I'm curious if you also enjoy Bruce Lee? A very profound man.
    Kindest wishes to you...


Be nice. Be respectful. Be rated PG.
