Greedy pigs on the wing

Battersea Power Station Pt. 2, originally uploaded by Susan B..

The historic Battersea power plant is being turned into a shopping mall/condo/cineplex. No doubt, there will be a gift shop selling Pink Floyd CDs, and t-shirts bearing the Animals album cover art--maybe even pink pig balloons for the kiddies!--totally oblivious to the screaming irony of the band's messages of non-commercialism.

Or perhaps the complex's owners just don't give a shit, which seems entirely likely.
