I just launched a blog called Procreative – all about issues related to men’s fertility. I did some crowdsourcing on Facebook to find the name. Some of my favorite submissions included: Future shot, Papa was a Frozen Load, Take a Load off Danny, The Loadown, The Father Load, You’ve Got Male (fertility issues), and…The Huffington Post.
I still really like Papa Was a Frozen Load, but the blog is really about a broad variety of issues related to men’s fertility. If I eventually end up using my frozen sperm to father a child, I look forward to the day when I can sing to my grandchild: “Papa was a frozen load / a vile in cold storage was him home, etc…”. Assuming I have a son. Or a kid, for that matter…
Anyway, have a look. You just might learn something!
Recently, I discussed my NY Times article about freezing my sperm for later use.
Any man under 40 (or even a few years over, like myself) who wants to have children eventually should consider freezing his sperm now.
It’s cheap, easy, and practically DIY!
Throngs of Swedes eager to escape the land of the midnight sun are traveling to the land of eternal sunshine. Blame the obvious (weather), the logistical (Norwegian Air Shuttle’s new direct flight from Stockholm) or the sartorial (Acne Studios’ opening of a West Coast outpost); whatever the reason, Los Angeles has become a new home away from ‘Holm for many Swedish creatives. “Without fail, every single day there’s a bunch of Swedes in the lobby,” says Fredrik Carlstrom, who ensconced himself at the newish Ace Hotel while overseeing the recent launch of Austere, a nearby Scandi-centric retail showroom and event space. Come late next year, downtown L.A. will also house AYD (short for “All Your Dreams”), a Nordic-influenced members club designed by Andreas Fornell (formerly Acne’s in-house architect). AYD will boast Swedish chefs (Adam & Albin of Matstudio in Stockholm) and club “ambassadors” like the pop icon Robyn. “A lot of people are skipping New York and going straight to L.A.,” says Patrik Berger, who co-produced the Swedish duo Icona Pop’s massive 2012 hit “I Love It.” “It’s all in L.A. when it comes to pop music.”

My latest piece for the New York Times, in which I suggest that any man under 40 (and even men a few years over 40) who are considering having kids eventually should freeze their sperm now.
Here’s a link to stream a track off my new EP, Ray & Remora / 1994. The album comes out May 6th, and I’m pretty darn proud of it. It’s six songs—all covers of songs that originally came out in 1994.
Some great videos are being crafted in our video factory right this very minute. I’ll post those as soon as they are ready.
In the meantime, enjoy Pavement’s “Gold Soundz,” as recorded by Ray & Remora!

A profile of actress Gillian Jacobs I wrote for NYLON.
She was not wearing this bikini for our interview.
This is a profile I wrote about stylist B. Akerlund (Beyoncé, Britney, Madonna) in the NY Times. It was a fun story to report, and hopefully it is fun to read, as well.
