Yoshi Didn't Podcast

The subject of this episode of Yoshi Didn't is a difficult person to summarize. Skin Diamond is an actress, illustrator, nude model, singer, SM bondage queen and - most important of all - a diehard Dr. Who fan! I was fascinated by her unusual, multinational background; she is of Ethiopian, Danish, Czech, Yugoslav, and German descent, and was born in Ventura, California, but raised in Scotland. Skin is quite simply a modern woman! The sky's the limit for this talented young lady. In addition to her many other talents, I believe she's on track to be one of the greatest adult stars of all time. Please listen and learn about this modern-day Cleopatra!

Then check out this music video for Skin's industrial duo, Space Age Clockwork, comprised of her sultry vocals and the dark grooves of producer Ashley Johnson. A full-length album is on the way!...

This is an long overdue episode; I finally interviewed my friend, Jonathan Brandstein. He's a talent manager extraordinaire at MBST management and an obsessive world traveler. We wanted to talk about our love for the Vice TV series and exploring many of the world's exotic places, but on this particular episode we discussed Jonathan's former client: Patrice O'Neal. Patrice was a truly great standup artist, and unfortunately, we lost him in late 2011. Jonathan and I ended up celebrating one of the most original comedic geniuses of our generation. 

Please support Patrice's family by purchasing his new album:
