I was tagged by @stilesisbi-au  <3!

nickname: I get ‘Kel’ sometimes but that’s about it

star sign: Aquarius

height: No idea, probably around 5′3′’ maybe, a shorty when compared to most 

time right now: 20:31

last thing you googled: Erm I remember google mapping my hotel in Disney recently, not sure if it’s the last thing I looked for though

favourite music artist: Rammstein are my long term fave’s though right now I’m loving Rev Theory

song stuck in your head: Hell Yeah – Rev Theory

last movie you watched: ‘Heaven’ possibly, can’t really recall

last tv show you watched: ‘Ship to Shore’ yes the early 90′s Aussie show that was on Nickelodeon – I’ve been working my way through old VHS’s that I taped of the telly to see if they’re worth hanging onto, so nostalgic!

what are you wearing right now: HAHAHAHA oh god, some amazing post work comfortness – pinkish/purple cropped pj bottoms, Harry Potter socks, army green tank top and a massive Rammstein hoodie from their 2002 European tour – I should point out that I did not see this tour, in fact this hoodie isn’t even mind. I found it behind the bar I used to work in (back in 2008) and put it on cos I was cold – no one ever claimed it. I have no idea who it belongs to but it’s hella comfy  

when did you create your blog: Archive says……January 2011

what kind of stuff do you post?: Pretty space pictures, Cut & Run related stuff, Karl Urban, Chris Pine and occasionally Jeremy Renner, Star Trek, some McKirk and anything else that catches my eye or I relate too

do you have other blogs?: On here nope – do have Twitter and LJ (hardly use but look at flist)

do you get asks on a regular basis: Nope

why did you choose your url?: One of my managers (at McHell yrs ago) nicknamed me and my mate the ‘Twinkle Twins’ and called me the ‘Dark’ one since I was more Gothy than my mate. When I made my LJ back in 2006 I chose Darktwinkle based on this.  

I’m going to tag @daisy-is-not-a-flower  @mahmah-tee @lovefushsia @marathonmary @jmp7095 & @raininginadelaide (only if you want to guys!) along with anyone else that wants to give this ago 🙂



  • on thursday we had a referendum, which is like x factor but with ramifications 
  • it did not go well
  • 51.9% of people voted to leave the european union
  • so now we are leaving the eu
  • the “leave” campaign promised we’d have more money to spend on the nhs and less immigration if we left the eu
  • a few hours after they won they said this won’t happen
  • they also said they have no plan
  • like, on live tv
  • they said this
  • no one has a plan
  • the value of the pound crashed
  • our prime minister resigned
  • the conservative party, who are in power, are now wondering who should be in charge
  • at the moment it’s looking like a walking wig or a woman who views human rights as a minor inconvenience will be running the country by september
  • the labour party, who are in opposition, are arguing about who should be in charge
  • their leader is jeremy corbyn. imagine a british bernie sanders who looks as if he’s wondering if he left the gas on. that is him. basically he was elected to run for labour leader as a joke and then he actually ended up winning it. now everyone is walking out on him
  • the lib dems say they will ignore brexit and keep britain in the eu
  • do you know who the lib dems are? no, no one does, they used to be a thing but now they have 8 mps
  • their mps can literally share a table at nandos
  • our chancellor of the exchequer gave a speech to try to calm the stock markets down
  • the stock markets calmed down for a bit
  • then it lost its chill and we lost our aaa credit rating
  • this is bad because economy things??? its complicated
  • oh yeah and we just got kicked out of the euros 
  • the euros is football, actual football, im looking at you america with your football that does not involve feet in a significant way
  • so we have effectively left europe twice in one week
  • scotland want to leave britain
  • ireland want to leave britain
  • and wimbledon started today
  • wimbledon, okay
  • normally, the big story
  • the only news story
  • at this time of the year
  • is wimbledon
  • and now
  • the country is falling apart
  • and the news does not know what to do
  • because it opens with “brexit is happening and we’re all freaking out” and ends with “british chances at wimbledon are looking good this year”
  • as if they’re forgetting
  • no one is running the country right now
  • carol i don’t care about the weather for wimbledon i care about THE ECONOMY
  • we are all confused and also the weather is awful

Ok this did make me smile…esp the Carol Wimbledon weather bit.

Cat s Eye Wide and Deep : The Cats Eye Nebula is one of the best known planetary nebulae in the sky. Its more familiar outlines are seen in the brighter central region of the nebula in this impressive wide-angle view. But the composite image combines many short and long exposures to also reveal an extremely faint outer halo. At an estimated distance of 3,000 light-years, the faint outer halo is over 5 light-years across. Planetary nebulae have long been appreciated as a final phase in the life of a sun-like star. More recently, some planetary nebulae are found to have halos like this one, likely formed of material shrugged off during earlier episodes in the stars evolution. While the planetary nebula phase is thought to last for around 10,000 years, astronomers estimate the age of the outer filamentary portions of this halo to be 50,000 to 90,000 years. Visible on the left, some 50 million light-years beyond the watchful planetary nebula, lies spiral galaxy NGC 6552. via NASA


ummm let me think

– Random surprises, the kind where someone’s thought about me. It not even big things, receiving an ask or being tagged in something makes me stupidly happy. 

– Loud music (I’m not a dick so loud via headphones counts and is normally the case)

– Driving (to loud music) 

–  Waking up an hour before my alarm. There’s something awesome about thinking ‘hell yeah, get to lay here and do nothing for a hour’

– Finding a new show or otp to consume my thoughts for the next however long. 

Thanks Anon! this fell into point 1 and made me happy 😛 also I’m so sorry for the late reply…I couldn’t think of happy then I forgot 





EVERYONE needs to start using Invoices. This is very important.

Paypal has recently updated their TOS and it’s something that everyone should pay attention to.

“10.3h If you violate the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, … you will be liable to PayPal for the amount of PayPal’s damages caused by your violation … You acknowledge and agree that $2,500.00 USD per violation … is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of PayPal’s actual damages … PayPal may deduct such damages directly from any existing Balance in the offending Account or any other Account you control.”

DO NOT SEND PAYMENTS AS “GIFTS” You will be risking your commissioners account and that is really really bad.

Artists, REQUEST PAYMENT THROUGH INVOICES. It lets YOU control how money is sent.

Commissioners, DO NOT SEND PAYMENT unless you send it through “for goods and services.” If your artist requests ‘send as gifts’ BEFORE you send payment, tell them about the $2,500 fine per violation, as they probably do not know about it.

Yes, paypal fees suck, but it’s better to have a few dollars missing than to get fined $2,500 for a $20 purchase.

This is really important! And yeah the fees suck, but it’s actually ILLEGAL to select “gifts” if you are actually paying for a service because of tax, like wise it is always illegal to accept payment that way. 

Please if you are a freelance artist taking commissions  ALWAYS SEND AN INVOICE! It can cover your ass in more ways than one, and you know actually makes it easier to keep track of things anyway. 

Signal boost- more than half of you who get art supplies from me take commissions, and you need to know.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.
