About Nest Expressed
If you landed on this page you probably want to know more “about” Nest Expressed. Else you’re clicking wrong buttons.
Well, hello there. I’m Nest, and I express myself on this blog. I know, very clever! My goal is to make you laugh. Failing that, to make you smile. Failing that, to prevent you from committing suicide, because I’m an ambitious guy.
Who the fuck is Nest?
That’s a natural question to ask when you don’t already know me and/or you have Tourette’s Syndrome. You, of course, don’t want to hear my whole life story when you ask this question. But too late, here it is.
I was born and grew up in Ukraine, when the country still belonged to the Soviet Union. Growing up under this oppressive regime wasn’t easy, as we were subjected to truly unspeakable horrors. Like being forced by our schools to wear matching uniforms that had stars with young Lenin’s face on them. Also, we sometimes had to stand in perfectly straight lines and sing patriotic songs. Yeah, terrible stuff.
At the age of 15 I had to seek escape from the madness. That’s how I ended up in Denmark; a country that was ten times smaller than Ukraine, had much crappier weather and an absurdly high tax rate. However, nobody had to have the face of Lenin accompany them on a daily basis, so it balanced out quite well.
Denmark is where I learned to speak proper English and “with-a-bad-accent” Danish. Now I use those powers to give outlet to my crazy thoughts and opinions, right here on this very blog.
“Spine-rippingly funny! I mean, just hilarious. Every word this guy says is instant comedy gold! But enough about George W. Bush, did you want to ask me about some Nest guy?” – Andy Rooney, world’s number 1 authority on comedy
“Nest Expressed is better than make sexy time with gypsy harem…NOT!” – Borat
“If laughter truly is the best medicine, then this Nest guy is saving more lives than the Polio vaccine. What do you mean I can’t review my own blog? How else will people know I’m awesome? Screw you, this interview is over!” – Daniel Nest
I would like nothing more than for you all to share my blog with the world. In return, all I ask is that you give me lots of money and smuggled antiques. Failing that, I just want to make sure you link back to me and give me credit. So that’s why I got myself this “Creative Commons” license:
“Nest Expressed by Daniel Nest is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.”
I know…WTF, right? “Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License”?! Seriously, Jar Jar Binks is easier to understand when he’s impersonating Arnold Schwarzenegger (that happens more often than you’d think). Basically what it means is:
- Feel free to share my stuff
- Feel free to “remix” it. So if you want to have a dancing monkey in cowboy boots sing parts of my blog on Youtube – do it! Also, seek help you freaking weirdo.
- Make sure to let people know where the material came from. Do you really want some crap I’ve said to come back to haunt YOU?!
- Don’t do any of the above for profit
- If you pass it on to others to share further, they have to follow the above rules as well
So, with all of that said – go browse my blog and have fun! If you have suggestions for a topic I could write about, leave a comment on my posts or contact me using the “Contact” page.
Note: “Your blog sucks and you should swallow a fork!” is not a good topic suggestion. It’s difficult to write about and it’s hardly original – I get dozens of those on a daily basis.
