Holly Randall’s ‘Adult Film School’ Returns to Playboy TV


Holly Randall returns to Playboy TV today with the premiere of the third season of “Adult Film School.” The celebrated glamour photographer’s show airs at 8 p.m. PST.

“I’m so excited for Season Three of ‘Adult Film School’!” Randall said. “Playboy TV really took it up a notch this season, with better couple transformations, better sets, and some new cast members, who I think the audience will love. We had some really fun fantasies to fulfill, so the shoot concepts are even sexier. I’m very proud of our work this season.”

“Adult Film School” is a reality show hosted by Randall that shows ordinary couples with extraordinary fantasies who bring their amateur sex tapes to the photographer for evaluation. The couple then gets a complete “porn star” makeover, and gets a chance to make their fantasies come true by performing them in professional settings. They get the best makeup, lighting, set design, and camera people Playboy TV has to offer, the show said.


Live Long and Prosper Mr. Spock


Leonard Nimoy, actor, director, poet, and singer,  who was known the world over as “Spock” passed away this week at the age of 83. Nimoy passed away in his home in Bel Air, from complications of COPD.

In 1965, he made his first appearance in the rejected Star Trek pilot titled “The Cage”, and went on to play the character of Spock until 1969, which was followed by eight feature films and guest spots in the various spin-off series. The character has had a huge cultural impact and earned Nimoy three Emmy nominations. T.V. Guide has named the character of Spock, as one of the 50 greatest TV characters of all time.

After the original Star Trek series, Nimoy starred in the popular series Mission Impossible for two seasons, hosted the popular documentary series called In Search Of……, narrated Civilization IV, and made several well-received stage appearances. He also had a recurring role in the science fiction series called “Fringe”.

.Nimoy’s Spock was handsome, but not in a way that Hollywood in 1966 recognized. He didn’t look like a leading man. Nimoy, was the son of Ukrainian Jewish immigrants. If you looked like that, you were a character actor, not a star.

But Nimoy became a star. He was a Method actor and in creating Spock, he took what could have been a gimmicky, two-dimensional character, and gave him hidden depths. Those hidden depths in turn gave him a certain sex appeal. Within the show’s plots, Captain Kirk was the leading man, and the lady killer. But, it was the character of Spock that made many a  female viewer swoon.  

Spock offered Trekkies and nerds a glamorous role model. Nimoy had to remind fans that the character wasn’t real and wasn’t really him, and he wrote just that in his 1975 memoir was titled “I Am Not Spock.” But in a way, he was.

During and following Star Trek, Nimoy also released five albums of musical vocal recordings on the Dot Records label.

In the May 9, 2009 episode of SNL, Nimoy appeared as a surprise guest in the “Weekend Update” segment with Quinto and Pine, who play the young Spock and Kirk in the Star Trek that had just premiered days earlier. In the sketch, Quinto and Pine attempt to appease long-time Trekkers by assuring them that the new film would be true to the original Star Trek. When the two indicated that they had been the target of harassment and threats by Trekkers, Nimoy appeared, assuring them that fans would enjoy the new film. When host Seth Meyers assumed that Nimoy was about to say that to not do so would be illogical, Nimoy just stated, “No, I was going to say, was to not like it would make them… dickheads.”

William Shatner, his long running costar was quoted as saying of the passing of Nimoy; “I loved him like brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”

I met him once, and he was a great man,  who gave a young actor and director advice on film making, that was greatly appreciated.

We will all miss him, and as his character said many times; “Live Long And Prosper”

Dakota Skye now going by the name of Kota Sky


LOS ANGELES—Popular young starlet Dakota Skye is officially trimming down her name for something fresh and new and catchy and not shared by anyone else connected to the adult world: Kota Sky.

The name change was accelerated by pressure put on by another person using that name, but Kota is nonplussed.

“I love the whole nickname aspect of being called Kota!” she says. “I feel like it is a good thing, I get the similarity of ‘Dakota Skye’ but with less problems. I think ‘Kota’ is catchy and fun, certainly much better than ‘Dak,’ and I think it will be an easy transition for me and for fans.”

Kota had six nominations in the 2015 AVN Awards including Best New Starlet and Best Star Showcase for the all-Kota blockbuster Meet Dakota from Digital Sin.

For movies starring Kota Sky (no doubt to be billed for some time as Dakota), check out Threesome Fantasies Fulfilled 5 (Pure Passion) and the upcoming Pretty Little Pussies (New Sensations).

Kota is booking her own scenes and can be contacted at officialkotasky@gmail.com. Follow the young starlet on Twitter @JustKotaSky  and Instagram @JustKotaSky for hourly updates.
