Why don’t they knock down Battersea Power Station? I just saw another question about London’s best buildings. One which came to mind was the Tate Modern, which I like myself but which was designed by the same guy who designed Battersea Power Station, which is.an absolutely ugly eyesore. Why don’t they knock it down? It is a horrible over-sized hulk of a building which over-powers everything around it. It probably looked bad enough back in its day, but now it has been left to rot for about 40 years or however long it looks even more delapidated.Some folks like it. I can’t see why. Knock it down!here’s a photo of it, for folks that don’t know it:londonleben.typepad.com/london_leben/pictures/battersea.jpg
do you know any songs with similar meaning to community outcast by devlin? like if you dont know the lyrics are;I represent for the homeless, Let down by a nation, More interested in war in this nation, When children are sleeping at railway stations.No home or money, They wish they could call their mummy to put a hot meal in their tummy, So at night when the temperature drops, I’m asking you to remember what you got, These kids go home to a cardboard box, They’re the soul survivors, Warming their hands with a flick and a flame in their lighters, All their life they’ve been frightened.On the streets with their head down, Knowing deep inside that they’ve really been let down, By a country that’s crippled, And I thought mankind was supposed to be simple.I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left in the streets where it’s evil, Little kids surrounded by knives and heroin needles.Yea I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left on the streets where it’s evil, Community outcast, cold, tired and feeble.I represent single Mums, All alone on their own trying to put food in the mouths of her two sons, And the fathers gone, there’s no cash flow, lack of income, But that’s just the way it is, She counts fifteen needles pushing her pram on the way to the lift, And this is where Blair said it’s safe to live and raise kids.She finds her way out of the block, With two kids in a pram and a rip and a stain in her top, She goes to sign on just to maintain the little she’s got, For her kids sake, But they’ll never seen a decent life, But they can dream and they’ll sleep tonight, They’ve been hung out and left to dry, The kids are in bed, Mums left to cry.I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left in the streets where it’s evil, Little kids surrounded by knives and heroin needles.Yea I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left on the streets where it’s evil, Community outcast, cold, tired and feeble.I represent for the old folk, that live alone, No family or kids at home, And all he wants is someone to speak to but nobody rings the phone.Sits at home in the dark, no electric, Since his wife passed, he can’t accept it, He feels isolated, neglected, And now his council flats infested, So he goes to the shop for his papers, With a stick and he falls in the mud, The people around him all pulled him up, But to him that’s just a reminder, He’s old and he’s weak with no one to love.He sees clouds up above, Another bad day in the diary, An old man by the many, Killed by society, strangled quietly.I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left in the streets where it’s evil, Little kids surrounded by knives and heroin needles.Yea I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left on the streets where it’s evil, Community outcast, cold, tired and feeble.I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left in the streets where it’s evil, Little kids surrounded by knives and heroin needles.Yea I represent for the people, Let down by a nation, And left on the streets where it’s evil, Community outcast, cold, tired and feeble.I know the railway stations is a bit of an exageration but i just can relate to songs like this so much and want to know some similar ones
How can I stop/relax/calm down a wailing/crying kitten? O.K. folks, need some help. First off, not going to lie to you, I’m a dog person. I have three large dogs, and one of them is a Roittweiler that has the run of the house. Here’s a little history: The Wednesday before Christmas, on my way home from work I stopped at a gas station and when I came out from the store there was this little fuzzball of a cat sitting beneath my tire crying. Now I am not a cat person, I do like cats but believe they are better suited out in my barn with the pigs and cattle, sorry if that offends. I checked with the station attendant (who didn’t know anything about it) and seeing I was in a warehouse district with no family homes, I took the shivering thing home. I could tell it was well fed and it smelled like it just had a bath. I don’t think it is more than 2, 3 or 4 months old. It’s eating the wet catfood I bought and has no problem using the litter box. The cat adores the Rottweiler and the dog feels the same way. More than once I’ve found them cuddled up together on the couch asleep and have pics to prove it. I am a working person, and have found the cat a good home, but not for 2 more weeks! But, to the problem, so for me to get some work done, and when I go to sleep, or leave the house, I crate the cat in an XL dog crate with food/water, a litter box, couple of cat toys I picked up, and plenty of towels. That’s when the wailing begins! You would think someone is strangling the poor cat! It lasts from anywhere between 20-30 minutes. If I let the cat out, it runs up and perches on my shoulder or stomach and usually falls asleep. Back in the crate the crying begins. Any help would be appreciated on anything I can do to calm the cat down. By the way, I don’t want to leave it loose in the house, not because my dog would intentionally hurt it, but because he is a large dog and can be rather clumsy. Thanks! ~Matt
