Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge

BeatTheWhitesWithTheThinRedWedge.jpg

I have learned something new both fannish and art historical thanks to the etherwebs: E.M. Lissitzky's Soviet propaganda poster may look eerily familiar to Flea-readers still missing the Uncharted Territories.

In the poster, the intrusive red wedge symbolises the Bolsheviks, who are penetrating and defeating their opponents, the Whites, during the Russian Civil War.

On a related note, I am planning to go out as a Peacekeeper Commando this Hallowe'en. Whether my outfit is going to be as elaborate as a hardcore Farscape fan's is down to scheduling...
