Containing Multitudes Since 2004
We may have to resurrect these, if things keep going the way they are. BCNU
I keep thinking the guy in the poster is saying, "Hey fellas, c'mere and let me show you my Charlie Chaplin impersonation!"
The inscription on the Globe says "Land and Will".
Thanks for the translations, Jay! I'm semi-tempted to send you future entries so I can provide the appropriate captions.Are you the guy who was translating these on Sheila O'Malley's blog, by any chance?
Yes, I am Sheila's commenter. Please do send me whatever you'd like. I can read Russian very well, I can muddle through other Slavics and Lithuanian (I lived in the USSR, in Lithuania for a year, Russia for a year). I also speak Chinese a bit, so I'll do my best with whatver you have. Can't do Korean, though.My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.The banner is hard to read here, and the script is the old-prerevolutionary one, but I think the translation is missing a word:"Social Revolutionary Party""In the struggle you find the right to freedom."I think the last word is not "svoi" or "yours", but "svob" - short for freedom.
