Battle of Waterloo 2015!

 

WATERLOO STATION/EUROSTAR TERMINAL

Never a dull moment in London! Strange things happen when Icewolves head out for a planned photo shoot involving the disused Eurostar terminal at London Waterloo railway station. Yes…well…strange location too perhaps but I like that sort of thing and besides which it would have made a great setting for a creepy, apocalyptic blog post!

Not too surprisingly it didn’t go quite to plan…it was locked off, boarded off, patrolled by railway security and the unavoidable presence of uniformed police officers and a whole bunch of CCTV cameras, making it just about impossible to sneak a way in without getting thoroughly and utterly arrested on the spot. And believe you me I gave it my very best shot! I really, really did want to have a look! So Plan A didn’t work…didn’t even get a photo or two of the odd glimpses I did get!

However not to be deterred…onto Plan B! Plan B consisted loosely of “let’s try sneaking in unnoticed through the ‘back door!’ “ Essentially this meant a tour round the outside of the station and a hike up a busy London street to find a side-route into the back streets which led to the back side of the station and Eurostar Terminal…needless to say that didn’t get me anywhere either…

And if anyone from Trabsport for London/British Rail/Eurostar chances on this post by some remote and inexplicable chance…”It’s not fair!!! I only wanted to have a little look, take a few photos for my blog post and explore a unique and interestingly eerie environment to kick start my starved imagination into producing a zombie apocalypse type masterpiece to post on my blog!! Not a lot to ask was it? But you wouldn’t let me in! I think next time you should give me a guided tour! “

 

 

 

 


DISUSED TUNNELS – LEAKE STREET – BATTLE OF WATERLOO

 

clip_image013clip_image015

Mission very much not accomplished there was only one thing for a darkly disappointed Icewolf to do…go explore the disused tunnels! What I didn’t expect to find was “The Battle of Waterloo” well underway in “The Tunnel” – located in the disused Leake Road, road tunnel far, far below in the depths under Waterloo station this “designated legal graffiti area” has not been used as a road tunnel since the closure of the Eurostar terminal at Waterloo station in 2007.

BANSKY – CANS FESTIVAL

One year later at The Cans Festival organised by famous street artist Banksy a murals and art exhibition was held in Leake Street tunnel leading to “The Tunnel” becoming a well-known “graffiti hotspot.” Well…not that well known! Wolfie knew nothing about it till now! But hey! What’s a little ignorance amongst friends? 😉

As the street artists at “The Battle of Waterloo 2015” show very clearly the Leake Street Tunnel has been very successful at maintaining its prestigious position as a graffiti hotspot.

Wolfie was delighted to discover in the course of the Icewolfie travels that there was even an underground Jamaican food stall available to supply the hungry masses…In the absence of a properly functioning photo album inserter – upside down photos are not the most inspiring sight! – these four images are the best that can be provided of this happy discovery…. the oddly flattened rectangular shape of them is not Icewolf, it is the dodgy blog editor!!!!

Aliens may be hostile, particularly aliens invading the planet.   86 comments

Stay alert, stay safe, stay alive! Part 2 of a previous post “The Aliens Are Coming To Get Us! ~ When Aliens Attack”
*Aliens may be hostile, particularly aliens invading the planet.

alien_invasion1Tips (*WikiHowls)

* Hang out with the type of people you think could survive an alien invasion: U.S. Marines, Israeli Police, Pakistani weapon smiths, etc.
* Be prepared. Have a plan. How are you going to find cover? Where’s the best place to get supplies when chaos and panic descend?
* Dress down, think functional. Avoid really bright colours. You just went through an apocalypse, people will think you’re a jerk if you dress too cheery.
* Get a dog—something smart and loyal, like a German Shepherd or a Rhodesian Ridgeback.aliens_spaceships

 Things You’ll Need:

* A hostile alien force.
* Human ingenuity

So the planet’s under imminent threat of an Alien Invasion. How would the World react?

In the event of an alien attack a state of international emergency to be declared. Civilians to be rushed to safe areas. Find their (aliens)weaknesses. Discover what they invaded Earth for. Mobilize troops and launch counter-attacks when the time is right.

                                            World: “We can haz peace?”

Aliens: “lol…no”

Apocalyptic TimesUS: “Nuke ’em”

Russia: “Nuke ’em”

China: “Nuke ’em”

UK: “Nuke ’em”Apocalyptic Times2

France: “Nuke ’em”

India: “Nuke ’em”

Pakistan: Nuke ’em”

Israel: “Nuke ’em”

                                                                          North Korea: “Nuke ’em”

                                     

                                                                       World: *nukes*

        Aliens: “kthnxbai”

At this point it could be quite useful if if Iran DOES have nukes… no one is likely to mind too much

When the World Ends...alien_attack

So >

Iran: Nuke ‘em

                                                             Resistance!

As a newly recruited member of the resistance movement YOU may think being armed to the teeth with the toughest human weaponry you have been smart enough to loot will make an awesome defence. The aliens won’t. They won’t have any effect on the average alien whatsoever other than to make them REALLY uptight and irritable, ensuring that when they do get hold of you, you will suffer a seriously NASTY fate. So save your firepower for the next crazed human* (there will be plenty around for target practice – this is an apocalypse)

  • Do hide the Lempsip

Any self-respecting invading alien race will be decimated by the common Earth cold. So sneeze, cough and splutter a lot and don’t tell them about the Lemsip and the Beecham’s Flu Plus etc. Hide it. On the downside, "Alien life forms wouldn’t come here only to be done in by our bacteria, unless they were related biochemically to humans. Bacteria would have to be able to interact with their biochemistry to be dangerous, and their ability to do that is far from a sure thing." ~Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif.

  • Do leave a glass of water lying around at all times Skywatch

Water is not good for aliens…in fact it is terminally bad for their well-being… so always be sure to leave plentiful supplies of half-drunk glasses of water lying around. Should this cause complaints a gusty yell of “LEAVE ME ALONE. I AM TRYING TO AVOID AN ALIEN ATTACK” will generally be very effective at silencing the inconvenient complainant.

  • Do get drunk

Alcoholic pilot syndrome is an excellent way to save the human race from deadly alien attacks as you will lose any inhibitions you may otherwise have had about nobly plunging your plane straight into the epicentre of an invading, alien spacecraft. Well nobody ever said alcohol was good for you did they. But the human race will forgive your discrepancy on this occasion and hold you in very high esteem.

  •  Don’t pick the flowers

Don’t pick them and take them home. (You really shouldn’t do this anyway… it is very naughty besides that you probably found them in someone else’s garden and they’re not yours.) It could also lead to the obliteration of the human race. Whilst you are sleeping happily in the land of nod, there could well be zombies could be growing in plant pods preparing to replace the human they’ve cloned. So, don’t go to sleep –ever. You won’t have a good time.

  • alien_attackDo avoid getting abducted (US Viewers)

If you a good, upstanding, arms bearing citizen of the USA it will naturally be a foregone conclusion and assumed by all that you have already been abducted by a variety of aliens on a number of occasions. Likely as not you were on a hunting expedition or two at the time of your abductions and whilst obviously no-one will believe a word of your abduction report this is perfectly normal and only to be expected. The safest bet is find yourself a really big city and go live in it. Right at the very heart of it. Be sure to have people around you at all times and never be alone again. And never ever go to sleep ever again. Just in case…

  • Do be wary of children

If all the women you know suddenly become inexplicably pregnant all at the same time it is perfectly acceptable to become very, very scared. This will not be without reason.

  • Don’t lose your cool

Aliens will have egos too. Probably even bigger ones than the average human’s. (Yes it is possible) Best not to have a screaming heeby jeebMaking friends!y panic attack should one jump out at you whilst you’re in the shower. This is not to be recommended at all and will only feed its alien ego. It is probably safe for you to assume that it intends to kill you and that it has no plans for making your demise a quick and clean one. So, pick up your jaw off the floor, go very quiet, (wide eyes are optional) and most importantly maintain a stiff upper lip (If you’re British you will already be very good at this) if not, now is the time to learn. Just for good measure present a look of totally unimpressed, unadulterated boredom and you should be absolutely fine. Hopefully.

Alternatively, assuming that it hasn’t already tried to kill you, you could give making friends with an alien a go — think fast – you must have something in common. Under no circumstances introduce it to anything remotely related to alien invasions, nuclear bomb blasts, wars…they might get the wrong impression.

2012–The End of the World? … “He Who Has The Knowledge Has The Power”   75 comments

December 21st 2012...?

Will the world end on December 21st 2012? This seems, depending on which way you are inclined, to be either; a burning question or a foregone conclusion of doom, etched firmly into the minds of the human species. Humans are a strange people, unique in their habit of living in fear that they are to be the last of their kind doomed to destroyed in an cataclysmic ending of time, and at any given time in history through to the present day, there have always been some who believe there is an apocalyptic significance to particular times and dates.

At the end of the World...the Apocalypse

  • Even as early in time as the impending start of the year 1000 A.D. there were those who believed we were doomed to meet our destiny as the world’s end came upon us.
  • Doom and the end of the world hung over our heads once again in the year 2000; with the predicted disaster of the dreaded Y2K. Not quite. We are still here alive and well.
  • We are now approaching the time of an ancient prophecy interpreted by those who wish to view it that way as the approach of the apocalypse – The Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012. This date is considered by the Mayans to be symbolic in that it is the time they expect to welcome the return of their god Kukulkan, the feathered serpent and as such was marked on their calendar over 2,000 years ago.

“Galactic Alignment” One census of opinion is that a galactic alignment will occur – the lining up of our solar system’s array of planets with the sun and a huge black hole that is the centre of the Milky Way galaxy, Consequently there will be a catastrophic shift in the axes of the Earth, resulting in apocalyptic earthquakes and tidal waves of a size and power that will annihilate the majority of Earth species bringing about the end of life as we know it!

  2012PoleShift_Apocalyptic Tidal Wavesgalactic-alignment2012 Pole Shift_Apocalyptic Earthquakes

There is nothing wrong with preparing for any possible future disasters that might await us, but we each have a comparatively short time on Earth and using it to live in fear is not the best of ways to spend it.

It is not for you to know the times or the dates...

"Galactic Synchronization Beam." Theoretically we will be entering new phase of galactic evolution triggered by a time wave – the Galactic Synchronization Beam. A claim put forward by Professor Jose Arguelles, one of a number of the most popular leaders in the field of modern Mayan calendar predictions who mentions this notion in his book The Mayan Factor.

Galactic Synchronisation Beam

In which case this date is not an end of time… but is in fact a beginning of a new phase, and the Mayans themselves never claimed that 2012 will be the end of time.

“The Long Count Calendar” The "Long Count" calendar developed by the ancient Mayans and the ancient Egyptians was based on their exactingly correct chronicles of the astronomical passage of the stars and planets. 26,000 years, the length of a single “Long Count cycle” is known as the “Great Year” during which time every constellation takes its turn appearing on the horizon at the time of the rising sun. Every 72 years, Earth Precession occurs. This simply means that there is a miniscule one degree shift in the position of the stars. It takes about 2200 years for us to transit from the most recent Age of Pisces to the new Age of Aquarius and this is considered to be the inception of a higher human awareness. The question, which remains perpetually unanswered even with all of today’s technology and science, is “Why would the Mayans go to all the trouble of charting the skies including for thousands of years into the future to such a high degree of accuracy?"

                                  clip_image013Mayan Long Count Calender

There have been many and varied cataclysms to afflict Earth across the centuries, but the truth is, no one really knows what our future here on Earth holds for us. We can hypothesise how it will all end to our heart’s content; but, nothing is written in stone and everything can change in a moment…

 

Everything can change in a moment...

We should however remember with caution; Real knowledge is the currency of the universe and he who has the knowledge, has the power.

  • Ancient Sumerians, Egyptians and Chinese were also guided by the stars.
  • The American Indians amongst many other cultures around the world address the incursion of an interval of instability and disarray in the Earth order.
  • Hopi prophecy communicated exact astronomical events, but it does not mention 2012 specifically. One of the most significant events the Hopi prophesied is the return of their “Blue Star- Kachina” (Known also as “Blue sun” and “Nan ga sohu”) Today’s we know it as Sirius – the Dog Star.

Blue Star Kachina

“Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of the Hopi people will cease.” It is said that this is where the changes will begin. A new way of life and the coming of a new world. That if we do not remember the “original teachings” and refuse to return to lives lived in peace we will burn up and destroy ourselves with our cravings and conflicts.

                                           

  • The Navajo have also given specific warnings that the sacred “Kachina’s” appearance is not a good sign nor is it something to be celebrated.

Whether there is any direct connection between the prophecies of the Hopi and Navajo Nations and the accuracy of the Mayan’s astronomical calendar remains to be seen.

        Urban Apocalypse

Quantum physics has taught us that that there are an infinite number of possibilities that can occur in every moment of every day and that the very act of observation changes the results of an event. We have learned that our collective consciousness has an impact on the final result. Ultimately, we do play a part in our own destiny, for destiny only takes us half way. The rest we have to walk ourselves.

path_of_enlightenment

Fearing the future and living with a constant sense of doom and dark gloom hanging over our heads is neither good nor healthy for any of us.
